    Just seen some details on this new “M” model. From the photos it looks incredible , with 212bhp.
    Just checked the configuration and prices start from circa £31k :eek:
    Anybody taking the plunge?

    I think it'll be amazing. Might take a look next year. Sold my HP4 back in February, so another BMW will be on the cards at some stage.

    I have a 2015 S1000RR and it is the best bike I have ever owned.
    I looked at the new M Sport version and it is a lot of bike but it is also a lot of money - unless you are a real track animal I don't really see the advantage for road use.

    I've got a '15 RR too. I find it hard to comprehend what 10% more power would even feel like?!

    When I saw the new one a few years ago I really really, really wanted it. That or the Panagali V4. But a 600 is more than I need. But man, that is a sweet bike.

    I test rode a 2019 S1000RR a couple of years ago and although stunningly fast and capable, I realised that I preferred character over outright performance on the road. As a track weapon though, it would be awesome.

    The electronics package on it is amazing. Pin the throttle and use the quickshifter, then grab a massive handful of front brake to slow down again. It's like riding the fastest moped ever, no skill required! That said, I felt the TC really is a brilliant safety net that allows you to use a lot of that power on corner-exit without worrying about a massive highside. I'd love one for the track, but as a road bike I found it a bit soulless.

    The M is pointless for anything other than a full blown race bike. The suspension is cheap and **** as it will be completely replaced for race stuff, all the money is in the engine which isn’t needed for the road.

    Every review says just buy an M pack one for the road and save £12k.

    If you’re determined to spend big money on a bike then a Panigale is the only way to go, love mine.

    I looked at these yesterday, both look amazing!

    the M is just classed as a : M1000RR which starts at £31k with the only option being £4500.

    I believe from what was said it’s a Homologation but not a numbered series. Nor was he sure how many was going to be built suppose on demand.

    it doesn’t have electronic suspension as it’s more of a race / track bike riders don’t want the interference!

    next model down is the S1000 RR MS (motorsport) which starts of at £20k but has lot of options I went with all options and that came to just over £28k

    then you have a S1000 RR sport starting at I believe £16k or it could be £15k

    then last but not least the normal S1000 RR starting at £14k or it could be £15k as sure there was only a £1000 difference between the two.
