Either its been a slow couple of months at BMW ’s M Gmbh division – highly unlikely – or the company’s racing program is just venturing into new ways on how to give customers a variety of options to choose from. From sports production cars to SUVs and crossovers, BMW M his now introducing the latest line in model in their ever-growing portfolio: the M Bike Carbon Racer.
Yep, BMW M has just launched its first-ever racing bicycle.
Before your curiosities set in, understand that this isn’t just an ordinary performance bicycle. For starters, it’s made by BMW. Likewise, the materials used in the bike aren’t exactly what you’d consider cheap-grade. There’s plenty of lightweight carbon fiber used in the bike, including the overall frame, which, according to BMW is corrosion-free. In addition to the anthracite-finished carbon fiber frame, the Carbon Racer also has Shimano Ultegra gears and weighs just a little over 7 kilos.
Adding some more aesthetic touches are colored accents on the rims, handlebar grips, and saddle inlay, all of which have been painted with BMW’s unmistakable M red finish.
Something tells us that this bike, whenever it does go on sale – BMW promised it to be out in the middle of this year – will generate plenty of interest from the bicycle-riding population of this world, including us.
