There is a saying, “men never really grow up, they just grow old.” This only means that even after reaching a certain age, a lot of men are still into childish stuff like collecting toys, magazines, and pretty much anything that can be put on a shelf.
For men with lots of money to spare, their toys just get bigger and more expensive.
Just recently, BMW Motorrad and the LEGO Group reveal the LEGO Technic BMW M 1000 RR (or the M RR for short) which is set to go on sale on January 1, 2022.
This intricate set brings the supreme racing technology of the 212-horsepower superbike, which is designed to meet the highest performance demands in motorsport and road use, to people’s living rooms. The record number of 1,920 individual pieces and the impressive 1:5 scale provide an indication that the 45.5 cm long LEGO Technic BMW M 1000 RR is a model motorcycle in a class of its own. As well as meticulous attention to technical details, the model version of the M RR offers a number of features that are sure to appeal to model building and motorcycle enthusiasts alike.
These include fully functional components such as the three-speed gearbox, the upside-down fork, and the rear swingarm with suspension, as well as the dashboard with three different display options and the gold-colored drive chain. The included paddock stand and pit board also provide authentic racing flair.
Ralf Rodepeter, Head of Marketing and Product Management at BMW Motorrad said, “When the management of BMW Motorrad announced the first M model on two wheels, the BMW M 1000 RR, everyone knew that it would be something special. In the same way, the LEGO Technic team realized they needed to come up with something unprecedented to pay tribute to the M RR. The result is a motorcycle and a technical model that each represent the state of the art in their respective fields.”
The LEGO Technic BMW M 1000 RR sees BMW Motorrad and LEGO continue their successful partnership and offers fans the opportunity to build the first model M motorcycle of BMW Motorrad that, like its real-life counterpart, stands for technical 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 LEGO Technic BMW M 1000 RR will be available exclusively in LEGO stores and on http://www.lego.com/BMW from January 1, 2022, and from other retailers starting March 2022, with an SRP of USD 229.99 or about PHP 12,000.
