The assembly of the M RR has been developed in sports racing and perfected for the road. For this purpose, we have increased the power of the four-cylinder in-line engine from the RR: For a higher torque in the mid-range. And we have increased the maximum speed by 500 rpm to 15,100 rpm. The titanium connecting rods are lighter, the rocker arms are 1.5 mm narrower, the airbox funnel has been shortened for better load changes: Millimetre work for milliseconds. In addition, there are 2-ring forged pistons with cross-ribbing and cylinder heads with new channel geometry and reinforced bearing brackets. Overall result: More dynamics and reduced mass inertia. For a shorter ratio, even the sprocket has been given a tooth and the chain itself and the wheelbase have also been lengthened. The anti-hopping clutch works without self-reinforcement – for the perfect launch control.


Superbike racing motorcycles are derived from standard production models and differ only slightly from the sports bikes you see on the roads. This makes BSB very appealing to manufacturers, and has led to the well-coined phrase “win on Sunday, sell on Monday”. Superbikes are both quick and powerful 1000cc with as much as 200bhp. For a bike to be eligible, the manufacturer must first homologate the model and manufacture the required number of road going machines. In general the bikes must maintain the same profile as their road going counterparts, with the same overall appearance as seen from the front, rear and sides. In addition, the frame cannot be modified.

In 2012 significant changes were made to the technical regulations in an effort to bring down costs whilst at the same time improving the spectacle of competition and increasing the opportunity for private teams to compete competitively.
