The Lego Technic BMW M 1000 RR, or the M RR for short, is set to go on sale on January 1, 2022.
A record number of 1920 individual pieces and the impressive 1:5 scale indicates the 45cm long Lego Technic BMW M 1000 RR is a model motorcycle in a class of its own.

These include fully functional components such as the three-speed gearbox, the upside-down fork and the rear swingarm with suspension, as well as the dashboard with three different display options and the gold-colored drive chain.
The included paddock wheel stand and pit board also provide authentic racing flair.
“When the management of BMW Motorrad announced the first M model on two wheels, the BMW M 1000 RR, everyone knew that it would be something special” BMW Motorrad’s Ralf Rodepeter said.
“In the same way, the Lego Technic team realized they needed to come up with something unprecedented to pay tribute to the M RR.
“The result is a motorcycle and a technical model that each represent the state of the art in their respective fields.”
The Lego Technic BMW M 1000 RR sees BMW Motorrad and Lego continue their successful partnership and offers fans the opportunity to build the first model M motorcycle of BMW Motorrad that, like its real-life counterpart, stands for technical excellence and attention to detail.
