Rolling Wonder. The BMW M Bike.

Munich. The BMW M Bike is a spectacular combination of state-of-the-art technology and exclusive design. Disc brakes and an elegant matt anthracite frame with the M logo combine perfectly with the leather saddle, stunning rims and handles, and shiny red seat inlay. Characteristic of the entire M collection, which, like the BMW M model itself, stands for the extraordinary and unique.

The thrill of speed.

Anyone who rides this sporty speed bike through the city or takes a short tour through the countryside will immediately attract a lot of attention - at least for a few seconds. The high total gear ratio transmission delivers astonishing speed.

The best of the best.

The BMW M Bike's fi'zi:k saddle is made from the highest quality leather with a red inlay. This ensures extra riding comfort and superior grip. The built-in Shimano SLX gear system is light and sturdy. The Manitou Match suspension fork on the front wheel is incredibly durable and the disc brakes make for a clean stop.

Starting in June 2010 BMW M Bikes will be available in a special limited edition at select BMW dealers and online at www.bmw-shop.com.

Here you'll also find choice textiles and other accessories from the M Collection, including the M Cabin Bag, a travel bag made from the finest leather, or the M Shoes - black sneakers made from a leather-nylon mix, designed in cooperation with Puma.

Revealed?? LOL! What a joke. This is why Cannondale didn't succeed in motorcycles. Stick with what you know BMW: stuff with a motor. This is about as good as that "Hummer" bike I saw on the front of a public bus today. Nice showroom bike....

Weird, my cheap in comparsion Cannondale weighs 15lbs..Also a hard-tail with graphite frame. But what i dont get is it has 80mm shocks with road tires...It's like a mountain bike with street circuit tires, terrible on the street and impossible to ride on the trails..FAIL!

it's not a performance bike, that's for sure. everybody is in the bike business nowadays (porsche, mercedes-benz, those guys from that F1 design company and so on) so why not a bmw bike? of course it will cost a lot 'cause it's made for collections and showrooms only.

This bike is only worth one third of it`s price, all your really paying for are the M badges.

What?? Lightweight? This bike is crap. Its not only heavy for a hardtail, it has some of the industries cheapest components. Selling this as a high end bike is as wrong as selling the x6 as a good looking car. Its just wrong..

Well, BMW is already selling the X6 as a good looking car. And you're right, it is outright wrong.

serious cycling? no serious cycling enthusiast will be caught in public on this thing, the last 4 bikes we have been forced to take, have all fallen apart before a customer touched them

Lightweight construction: chek. Rear wheel drive : check. Leather seat(s): check. No radio, electric windows, etc. : check. THIS MUST BE A FUTURE CSL MODEL!!! How will it move? "Acording to BMW's engine downsizing policy: You will push pedals, and drink red bull..." DARN HIPPIES!!!!!

For this price you can buy a carbon bike with full XTR groupset, under 9 kg. Or the same bike for third price.

It's a good bike, but whether it's M or not depends on whom the rider is, not the bike.
