2022 BMW M 1000 RR 50 Years M First Look [50th Anniversary Edition]

2022 BMW M 1000 RR 50 Years M For Sale

The 2022 BMW M 1000 RR 50 Years M is here, and it doesn’t run a penny more than the standard BMW M 1000 RR. However, you can’t buy the 50 Years M edition without the $4500 M Competition Package. As BMW gently puts it, “To get the anniversary edition, the M 1000 RR should be equipped with the optional 50 Years M Package.”

The 50 Years M Package includes the M Billet Package, Carbon Package, M GPS-Lap timer and data logger, M endurance chain, silver-anodized aluminum swingarm, rear seat cover, and passenger kit. The M Billet Package consists of M brake and clutch levers, adjustable M rider’s footpegs, engine spoiler cover, and brake lever guard. The Carbon Package gets you carbon fiber goodness on the upper side fairing, chain guard, sprocket cover, and wheel covers from the M Carbon collection.

BMW M GmbH got going in 1972 to consolidate BMW’s various motorsport racing participation. Robert A. Lutz, a board member on the Board of Management of BMW AG for Sales in 1972, said, “A company is like a human being. If it does sports, it stays fit, enthusiastic, more effecting, and powerful.”

BMW M successes in the motorcycling realm include success in racing endeavors ranging from the Isle of Man TT to the Paris-Dakar Rally.

To ensure everyone knows you’re on a 2022 BMW M 1000 R 50 Years M, it comes in a distinctive Sao Paulo Yellow with 50 Years M livery. Look for this motorcycle to arrive in the United States late in the third quarter of this year as a very-late 2022 model.
