Designed for a pure fun experience, the set also includes a easel it’s a exhibition plate.
However, the meticulous details are not limited to the design. The construction was in fact designed to fully replicate the real bike and with its 1,920 pieces it gives enthusiasts a taste of the production processes of the original BMW.
The words of Samuel Tacchi, designer of the LEGO Group:
It was a lot of fun to study the structure of such an important model for BMW Motorrad. There is a reason these beautiful bikes are so loved around the world by motorcyclists and we are sure our LEGO Technic version will be as successful as the real product. The set has a design faithful to the original, equipped with complex but at the same time functional parts: building it is a real challenge and the result is visually splendid. This model is also the largest LEGO Technic Bike set ever made and we know the building experience will be as immersive as the adrenaline of taking the real bike to the track.
The comment from Ralf Rodepeter, Head of Brand and Product at BMW Motorrad:
When BMW Motorrad management announced the first motorcycle developed by M, the BMW M 1000 RR, everyone knew that the result would be something special. Likewise, the LEGO Technic team realized that it would take something never seen before to pay homage to the M RR. The final effect is a Technic motorcycle and model that represent excellence in their respective fields.
