BMW’s M Division Reveals The Carbon Racer Bicycle

M Bike Carbon Racer

BMW’s M division was originally created in order to facilitate the automaker’s racing program, but over the years they’ve expanded their activities to include the development and manufacturing of BMW’s sportiest production models, and lately they’ve launched “M” versions of crossover and SUV models. They’ve entered a new territory this week with the introduction of a racing bicycle, dubbed M Bike Carbon Racer.

Probably the most interesting feature of this bicycle is its lightweight carbon frame that has been fully developed in-house by the M division. They’ve said that the frame is very light and stiff, absorbs shocks and is 100% corrosion-free. It comes with Shimano Ultegra gears and has a curb weight of only 16.3 pounds (7.4 kg).

As you can see, the frame has been finished in an anthracite carbon look, while the colored accents on the wheels, saddle inlay and handlebar grips are painted in the traditional BMW M red color.

They didn’t say how much the M Bike Carbon Racer will cost, but we do know that it will be available at selected dealers and online on the company’s website starting with this June.

Here are the bike’s full specifications:

Frame height: 52 cm, 54 cm, 56 cm, 58 cm, and 60 cm
Frame: Full carbon with BMW M logo
Rear derailleur: Shimano Ultegra RD-6700
Front derailleur: Shimano Ultegra FD-6700
Cassette: Shimano CS6700, 11–28 sprockets, ten-speed
Weight: 7.4 kg

Anyone care to venture how much will it cost? I think that it will be more than $5,000, even $10k.
