Here is an interesting find from our colleagues across the pond at Visordown, as it looks like BMW Motorrad is going to become more in line with the mothership on its naming conventions.
As such, the news is that we could see some motorcycles with the Bavarian brand’s unique “M” logo, which has graced iconic automobiles like the M3 coupe and M5 sedan.
First on the list seems to be M-spec editions of the upcoming S1000XR and R1250GS. Of course, the 2020 BMW S1000RR superbike already has an “M Package” available, which includes carbon fiber wheels and other basic improvements.
What is not clear from this news is whether or not BMW Motorrad will continue merely offering up-spec “M Packages” to its two-wheeled lineup, or if we will see dedicated models with the “M” designation, like say an M1000RR.
The answer could be a mixture of both, perhaps. It could be that BMW Motorrad plans to offer upgrade packages via the “M” name, and that future full-service upgraded motorcycles could be badged as “M” models – bikes like the potent HP4 Race could be branded as an M1000RR, for example.
As you can tell, it will be interesting to see where BMW Motorrad goes with this news. We doubt we will have long to wait though, as the next set of M bikes will likely debut next month at the EICMA show in Milan.
