At the 2021 Bol d’Or 24-hour World Endurance Championship (EWC) race, I was a guest in the BMW Motorrad factory garage, invited to carefully examine the bits and pieces that go into a race-winning machine at that level of competition. One of the things that struck me was how often Steven Casaer, Technical Director for the team, kept using the words ‘stock’ and ‘over-the-counter’ as he detailed the components and the overall machine build. “It’s a pretty basic machine,” he finally said at the end of the interview.

Roadracing World took the newest M 1000 RR to the track and put test consultant Jeremy Toye aboard. Toye is uniquely qualified to evaluate BMW’s quickest sportbike, as he not only rides a BMW S 1000 RR regularly as a coach with Fastrack Riders, but raced an S 1000 RR to a podium finish at the Macau Grand Prix. What did Toye think of the M 1000 RR? Read his impressions in the latest issue of Roadracing World!
