The fleet of official MotoGP vehicles for the 2015 season consists of six different BMW M and BMW M Performance models. They are spearheaded by the BMW M4 MotoGP Safety Car, in which innovative water injection technology will be used for the first time this year.
The high-performance BMW M4 Coupé, with its six-cylinder inline engine, forms the basis for this Safety Car. Like all the Safety Cars, the BMW M4 Coupé has also been further optimised in the BMW M factory for its role at the head of a field of racing motorcycles. For example, the rearseat was removed and RECARO racing seats with Schroth belts installed.
The Safety Car is also equipped with an extensive range of BMW M
Performance Parts, including the titanium BMW M Performance Exhaust
System with carbon tailpipes, a BMW M Performance Front Splitter, and a
BMW M Performance Rear Diffusor.
A carbon rear spoiler reduces the
amount of lift on the rear axle. LED lights on the front apron and roof,
together with the exclusive livery, mean there is no mistaking that
this high-performance car is a Safety Car.
Frank van Meel, President of BMW M Division: „The 2015 season marks the 17th season of BMW M as “Official Car of MotoGP”. Ever since 1999, MotoGP organiser Dorna Sports has been able to rely on a dependable partner in the form of BMW M when it comes to ensuring the highest possible degree of safety at the pinnacle of motorcycle racing.
Frank van Meel, President BMW M GmbH
This successful partnership has grown consistently over the years. Last
autumn, Dorna Sports and BMW M Division extended their cooperation up to
and including 2020. This means we will be able to celebrate the 20th
anniversary of BMW M in MotoGP in 2019. We are proud of this
partnership, which spans over decades and is extremely rare in
international, high-performance sports.“
