What is the real power of the BMW M 1000 RR?

Cotton doesn’t lie (mythical phrase from the late ’80s and early ’90s) and the power bank doesn’t lie either. Therefore, in order to know the real power of the BMW M 1000 RR, the best idea is to go over the German superbike with the Dynojet from our CycleWorld colleagues.

It is not the first time that we know the real power data of emblematic models, and now it is the turn of the motorcycle from which the machine with which, Toprak Razgatliouglu, is going to try to stand up to Álvaro Bautista and Jonathan Rea, is derived.

In this case, the unit that passes through the test bench is the 2023 model, which included some changes in terms of aerodynamics, although both the engine and the chassis were the same as in the previous version. Of course, thanks precisely to that work on aerodynamics, the performance in terms of speed improved, so in that sense the new model was at a higher point.

What power does the BMW M 1000 RR offer?

Once up on the bench comes the moment of truth, to see what power of that announced on the crankshaft reaches the wheel. As we always say, one thing is the power produced by the engine and another is what ends up reaching the wheel after passing through the transmission. That is why motorcycles with more than 200 HP end up delivering less, but it is a standard that serves as a reference.

The fact is that after increasing the revolutions to 13,220 RPM, the maximum power of the BMW M 1000 RR arrives with a not inconsiderable 189.37 HP at the wheel. Furthermore, we can see that the power line is quite progressive, and although it has a flat before 6,000 that lasts until almost 6,000 and then a small drop at 12,000 before reaching its peak, the power arrives in a very linear way .

The same thing happens with the engine torque of the BMW M 1000 RR, which, although it has a maximum of 107.11 Nm at 9,480 RPM, remains quite stable from 4,000 onwards. Not inconsiderable performance for a motorcycle that on the CycleWorld colleagues’ scale has a mass of 195.95 kg (or weighs 195.95 kiloponds).
