MotoGP™ attracts riders and spectators the world over with its combination of dynamics, high performance and innovation. Attributes which are unequivocally connected to BMW M. It is therefore not surprising that since 1999, BMW M has led the way whenever the world’s best motorcycle riders take to the race track – with an entire fleet of BMW M Safety Cars to be exact.
Under the critical eye of BMW M in Garching, the BMW M2 Coupé was rebuilt, optimised and specifically adapted to its role at the MotoGP™. In addition to custom-made and compulsory safety devices, the BMW M GmbH engineers have donated an extensive line of BMW M Performance Parts to the fleet of M Safety Cars - not only creating eye-catching accents, but also fulfilling functional requirements for aerodynamics, cooling and lightweight construction. Many of the M Performance Parts – including the lower-lying coil-over suspension and exhaust system with flap control – are available as retro-fit components for the “everyday” drivers´ BMW M2 Coupé.
The enviable winner of the 2017 MotoGP™ eSport Championship, thanks to the support of BMW M, will be able to enjoy the power and exceptional driving experience of the road-going version of the M240i – without a doubt the most desirable coupé for any MotoGP™ fan!
In additional to the incredible achievement that is a top 3 finish, the MotoGP™ eSport Championship first runner-up will not walk away empty handed. A fitting reward for a racing enthusiast, the KTM RC390 is as playful as it is practical - replicating traits of the KTM Super Duke R while still retaining its undeniable Moto3™ DNA.
Underneath the stylish exterior of the KTM RC390, sits a powerful 43 hp of grunt for a lightweight and compact machine of this class. The liquid-cooled, single cylinder four-stroke 373cc engine with twin overhead camshafts, four valves and electronic fuel injection, is certainly a game changer. A braking system developed in cooperation with Brembo delivers better braking power, and the new look exhaust has a rear aluminium absorption silencer containing the catalytic converter to keep weight to a minimum. Power and pleasure combined.

Apart from that, the top 3 of the Grand Finale held in Valencia on November 10th will receive an unforgettable Experience at RedBull Hangar-7, a multifunctional feat of engineering located in Salzburg, Austria. A rather unique building, Hanger-7 houses the historical Flying Bulls aircraft fleet and a collection of Formula 1 race cars. It also offers space for art exhibitions - and with its Michelin starred restaurant Ikarus, two bars, an outdoor lounge and a café, it is not just an events location, but a meeting point for art lovers and bons vivants alike.
