The first one, in fact, came in 1978 with Motorbike Set 603, a 26-piece, minifigure-scale System model. The company has come a long way since then. Sets are becoming decisively more giant and complex with each passing year. And the 44-year-old Technic theme has worked its way into a significant portion of all current sets. Flagship models in this theme have been fancy for a while, but now the theme is giving the “adult” VIP treatment to a collectors-style motorcycle. The company has teamed up with BMW Motorrad to bring their new superbike into homes everywhere with thiss LEGO Technic Motorbike BMW M 1000 RR Set 42130.
It really does look impressive and is certainly enormous and heavy. The Motorbike BMW M 1000 is a high performance motorcycle designed to meet FIM World Superbike and Superstock regulations. The new “M” is built around the S1000RR with revisions to its 999cc shiftcam inline 4. More power and less weight is the holy grail for manufacturers but add more electronics plus aerodynamic enhancements and a handful of chassis tweaks and the M 1000 RR was born. BMW‘s “M” division was created as a stand-alone subsidiary of BMW’s car production that focused on building BMW race cars. The M1000RR is the first motorcycle that BMW have produced to grace the iconic “M” badge. This set may not be for the newcomer or the faint of heart when it comes to LEGO, and particularly Technic. There are some pretty complicated areas, and there is a good reason why it’s intended for adults. LEGO Technic Motorbike BMW M 1000 RR Set 42130 is suitable for ages 18+.
