Meanwhile, the new M 1000 XR – the third full-fat ‘M’ model following the M 1000 RR sportsbike and M 1000 R hyper naked bike – will hit showrooms from $36,690 in standard trim, while the top spec Competition variant will launch from $44,290.

A number of ergonomic changes have also been made, including a 10mm increase in seat height (850mm) and a new seat, which BMW says gives greater freedom of movement on the motorcycle specifically under high-performance riding conditions.

Distinguishing the M 1000 XR is a significantly more powerful four-cylinder engine, generating 148kW and 113Nm, translating to a 23kW boost compared to its S 1000 XR stablemate.

Acceleration is also aided by a shorter secondary gear ration (+2 teeth), as well as shorter 4th, 5th and 6th gear ratios.

To compensate for the added grunt, the M 1000 XR adopts unique aerodynamic winglets which are said to increase front wheel load by up to 12 kilograms (downforce).

While the chassis is based on the S 1000 XR, the M 1000 XR gains significant upgrades to the suspension package as well as larger and sportier ‘M’ brakes.

For track riding, the M 1000 XR also gains BMW’s brake slide assist to allow the rider to ‘brake drift’ into corners, and a GPS system is fitted to the 6.5-inch TFT dash for important data readouts and lap timing features.
