BMW Motorrad introduced the M automobile strategy for motorcycles in 2018 and, since then, offered a range of M special equipment and M Performance Parts. In 2020, S 1000 RR-based M 1000 RR celebrated its world premiere as the first M model from BMW Motorrad.

The new anniversary edition features a few cosmetic as well as package add-ons. The M 1000 RR now comes in a Sao Paulo Yellow finish with the historic 50 Years BMW M emblem. The anniversary edition lives up to the M philosophy and the racing spirit from almost 100 years of motorcycle construction by BMW Motorrad and 50 years of BMW M vehicles. Therefore, the M 1000 RR M comes with the M Competition Package as standard.

Additionally, it also gets an extensive M milled parts package. For weight reduction, the bike also gets the exclusive M carbon package.
