In the upper edge of the superbike class, BMW Motorrad campaigns its 2022 M 1000 RR ($36,995 as tested). This is the German brand’s top-of-the-range liter-class homologation special for the 2022 model year. This sportbike offers an array of technical improvements versus the base S 1000 RR.

Beginning with the 999cc inline-four, inside there are aluminum forged pistons and titanium connecting rods. The cylinder head has been reshaped and now benefits from titanium exhaust springs. Other improvements include an updated airbox with improved and still electronically height-adjustable velocity stacks. Externally, outside of the engine. The twin-spar aluminum frame has been modified with material removed in certain areas. The triple clamp offset is reduced, so the clamps are more far forward. The steering geometry has been a little bit more relaxed to boost stability.
The swingarm pivot has more finite adjustment (maximum adjustment range remains the same). The swingarm is also a half pound lighter and includes an adjuster to modify the linkage ratio of the rear suspension. It’s easy to make adjustments: Loosen the Torx head screw then loosen the fastener inside the linkage. The mechanic then pivots the arm and adjusts the linkage ratio. There is a lot of adjustment inside this M 1000 as compared to the RR.
The M 1000 RR’s braking package has also been tweaked. Blue anodized Nissin calipers are fitted and grip a pair of 320mm rotors that are 0.5 millimeter thicker than the standard model. Of course, this bike is dripped in carbon fiber. Carbon fiber wheels and winglets that increase the downforce of this motorcycle by 16 pounds at 120-something mph. We also have awesome embossed rearsets that are adjustable, so you can adjust the position of the footpegs and the rear brake and shift lever to your liking. We’re big fans of motorcycles that offer footpeg adjustment.
This M 1000 RR also includes GPS data acquisition, so you can monitor lap times and the vitals of the motorcycle while setting fast (or slow?) laps. And because it is a BMW, it offers heated grips and a USB charging port under the seat. Motorrad understands that we like to ride on the road, on the track, and in all types of weather.
This is a handsome-looking motorcycle and it rings in at $37,000. Yes, it costs around $12,000 more than a standard S 1000 RR, but you get a lot of extra features and improvements for the money. It’s worth noting that for the 2023 MY, BMW Motorrad has a new and improved M 1000 RR, which we hope to operate one day.
Swinging a leg over the M 1000 RR, we love its conventional mechanical ignition key. This key is locked to the 6.5-inch dash display, so when you reflash it, you have to remove this entire ignition setup, as well as the ECU. Diving into the menu on this color TFT allows you to access vehicle settings, just like the standard RR.
Here in the “settings” menu is where things get good. There are three race modes that you can customize (Race Pro 1, 2, 3). The rider can tweak engine power, engine-brake, traction control (BMW calls it DTC), wheelie control, and ABS. For this test we customized the Race Pro 3 mode. We installed maximum power (duh); we also engaged maximum engine-brake. We prefer the maximum engine-brake setting because we need extra help slowing the vehicle. We could see how faster operators could desire more free-wheeling effect during corner entry. We also selected a lower DTC setting. Wheelie control, we selected Level 2. So it’s not the least aggressive wheelie mitigation mode. In terms of ABS, we chose Level 2, so again, not the most aggressive ABS setting. Rear ABS is enabled in the setting.
This M 1000 RR is set up with reverse shift with a shift pattern of one up, five down. This modification reduces the short amount of time it takes to upshift into the next cog.
Double R Fest is a BMW Motorrad trackday experience, but you don’t have to just ride a S 1000 RR. It’s open to all types of motorcycles. But the reason many riders chose to ride BMW is because it offers so much character and charisma.
When you get the engine revving north of 10,000 rpm, you’ve got to hang on tight. With a claimed 205 hp, this bike accelerates like a fighter jet rotating off

BEYOND THE STRIP: Discover the Cultural Gems of Las Vegas
Written by Barbara Toombs
Fremont Street in the heart of downtown Las Vegas.
Millions of visitors are understandably attracted to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas’ renowned Strip each year, where world-class resorts, casinos, shows and incredible dining options are the name of the game.
What many don’t realize is that there’s another fascinating side to the Entertainment Capital of the World, headlined by two cultural districts known simply as Downtown and Chinatown.
Downtown Las Vegas (also known as DTLV) is really where this unique desert city got its start. In 1931, construction began on what is now known as the Hoover Dam, attracting thousands of workers to a site just east of the city. To capitalize on this growing workforce, savvy businessmen began building casinos and showgirl venues along Las Vegas’ only paved road at the time: Fremont Street.
Today, DTLV is comprised of three distinct districts. Many visitors to the city are already familiar with one of them: the Fremont Street Casino District, which contains museums, restaurants and bars, as well as the original Las Vegas casinos, including El Cortez, Golden Nugget and Golden Gate. Here you’ll also find the renowned Fremont Street Experience, which debuted in 1995. This pedestrian-only thoroughfare is covered by a canopy of more than two million LED lights and a state-of-the-art sound system that comes to life every night for a spectacular sound and light show called “Viva Vision.”
The Arts District
A popular attraction in this district is The Mob Museum (the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement), which showcases intriguing tales and the age-old dichotomy of good guys versus bad guys. Explore at your own pace, go on a guided tour or uncover museum surprises as part of a group scavenger hunt. Want a literal “taste” of old-school Las Vegas? Plan to dine at Top of Binion’s Steakhouse, perched on the 24th floor of Binion’s Gambling Hall. The restaurant dates back to 1965 when it was known as Top of the Mint, the signature dining spot at The Mint hotel tower. The interior design (and menu – think steak, prime rib, lobster and even Baked Alaska) is a throwback to an earlier era when the mob ran much of Las Vegas, but the real draw is the spectacular view through dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows.
Built in 2002, the Fremont East Entertainment District (FEED) is a six-block area that stretches from Las Vegas Boulevard East to 8th Street and from Ogden Street South to Carson. FEED is pedestrian-friendly, offering diverse street life and many eateries, cafes, bars and lounges, as well as ample shopping opportunities and lively entertainment. A must-see attraction in this district is the Downtown Container Park – a dining, shopping and live music venue made of 45 colorful repurposed shipping containers, all fronted by a two-story, fire-breathing praying mantis who made its original debut at Burning Man. Nearby is the popular Bin 702 – one of many great dining choices in the area – featuring a great selection of beer and wine, as well as a tantalizing choice of charcuterie and cheese, sandwiches and small plates for sharing.
18b sign in The Arts District.
In recent years, The Arts District – or the 18b as it’s also known (a reference to it occupying 18 blocks of Downtown Las Vegas, loosely outlined by Commerce Street, Colorado Ave, Fourth Street and Hoover Avenue) – has been growing in popularity. Its monthly “First Friday” block party and art walk features food trucks and live music, serving as a backdrop for artists showing their works off at a variety of open-air and indoor galleries. These include The Arts Factory, home to over 30 artists and art galleries, and ArtSquare, a hip establishment that houses design stores, designer’s studios, wellness spots, and food and drink outlets. Behind The Arts Factory sits one of many great dining choices in The Arts District: Taverna Costera, serving up delicious Coastal Mediterranean fusion that draws inspiration from coastal Spanish, French, Italian and Greek cuisines and beyond.
Just a couple of miles east of the Strip, along Spring Mountain Road (roughly between Rainbow Boulevard and Interstate 15), lies the city’s amazing Chinatown, which has grown in leaps and bounds over the past two decades. Here you’ll find the largest collection of Asian businesses in Southern Nevada, including a multitude of authentic Asian restaurants, gift shops, a hair stylist, a reflexologist, home decor, an Asian supermarket and the only Chinese bookstore in Nevada.
At Chinatown’s heart is the enormous and ornate Chinatown Plaza, featuring a colorful, dragon-adorned, Tang Dynasty-inspired gate and gleaming
