Yesterday, the LEGO Group revealed the upcoming #42130 LEGO Technic BMW M 1000 RR, the largest LEGO Technic motorcycle to date. Take a look at the details below.
LEGO Technic has unleashed the ultimate street and track champion motorbike, with the reveal of the #42130 LEGO Technic BMW M 1000 RR set. This incredibly detailed 1:5 scale set is a faithful replica of the supremely fast, technologically advanced BMW M 1000 RR motorbike.
The set is the latest in a partnership between LEGO Technic and BMW Motorrad and gives fans the opportunity to own the first-ever BMW ‘M’ bike, a coveted badge that’s steeped with heritage and synonymous with motorsport, engineering excellence, and attention to detail.

Samuel Tacchi, designer at the LEGO Group commented: “It’s been so much fun getting underneath the skin of such a significant model for BMW Motorrad. There’s a reason why these beautifully engineered bikes are so universally loved by the biking community, and we are confident our LEGO Technic version is a winner like its real-life namesake. The set has a truly authentic design, features functional yet intricate working parts, provides a challenging build and is visually stunning. It’s also the largest ever LEGO Technic bike set and we know the building experience will be just as addictive as the adrenaline rush from taking the real thing out on the track.”
Ralf Rodepeter, Head of Brand and Product at BMW Motorrad commented: “When BMW Motorrad’s management announced the first-ever M-developed motorcycle, the BMW M 1000 RR, everyone knew that the result was going to be something special. In the same way, the LEGO Technic team realized it would take something never-seen-before to pay true tribute to the M RR. The result is both a motorbike and a Technic model that are state-of-the-art within their respective fields.”
Some of the most notable bikes released in the past few years are the #42063 LEGO Technic BMW R 1200 GS Adventure from 2017, the #10269 LEGO Creator Expert Harley Davidson from 2019, and the #42107 LEGO Technic Ducati Panigale V4 from 2020. While these models were big, they are dwarfed by the size of the #42130 LEGO Technic BMW M 1000 RR. Take a look at the video-review below by Balazs from RacingBrick.
