If you like to have fun on two wheels, BMW has something new for you. Inspired by the M5 sedan, the BMW M Bike Limited Carbon Edition combines carbon and aluminum, along with the best components in the bicycle world. Only 500 examples will be produced, all finished in Marina Bay Blue Metallic.
Last month, BMW and SPECIALIZED collaborated on an electrically assisted mountain bike to celebrate the new X3. The Limited Carbon Edition bikes are being built in-house to showcase the M5’s advanced construction. The frame is hydroformed aluminum. It starts as a piece of aluminum placed into a hollow cavity. Water is forced in at high pressure, expanding it to form the final shape.
It is an expensive process for production cars, and especially limited runs like these. Carbon is used for the fork, seat post, and spacers to keep weight to a minimum. Continental CruiseCONTACT tires measure 28″ x 2.0 and are stopped by Shimano hydraulic brakes. Each bike is numbered and comes with a build certificate. They will be available from selected dealers, so to find one near you please browse for M5s for sale in the link below. Stay with us for all your BMW news.
