How we made the LEGO® Technic™ BMW M 1000 RR just like the real thing
We love motorbikes.
In fact, in the past, we’ve built a selection of awesome motorcycles. So, when it came to choosing a subject for a new LEGO® Technic™ set, the bar was high.
But, for designer Samuel Tacchi, the choice was obvious.
“We wanted to create the quintessential representation of a motorcycle, and I think the BMW M 1000 RR is just that.”
For those of you who follow BMW, you’ll know that the letter M is not awarded to just any vehicle. In fact, M models make up an elite club. The M is usually reserved for cars, and not just any cars, but cars with specialized engines, transmissions, suspensions and other modifications that set them apart and above other vehicles.
There is only one motorcycle that has ever been awarded the prestigious M, and that is the BMW M 1000 RR.
