Ahh you're right. I don't follow BMW's bikes so I forgot they had a couple variants. Sweet bikes either way, even the regular s1000rr

What's the explanation for the carbon fiber bullhorns in the front? Is it growing sideways grills?

Not sure if it is just cosmetic or act as some sort of wind deflectors 🤔

M winglets and high windscreen: Braking later and accelerating earlier thanks to the aerodynamic downforce without any reduction in maximum speed.

The aerodynamics were a decisive point in the technical specifications for development work of the M RR. In addition to a maximum speed that is as high as possible and absolutely necessary for winning races, there was another objective in the technical specifications of the M RR: to establish the best possible contact of the wheels with the road - especially when accelerating. The M winglets on the trim front, which were developed during intensive testing on the race track and in the BMW Groupís wind tunnel and are made of clear-coat carbon, take this into account as they produce aerodynamic downforce and thus additional wheel loads according to the speed. The additional wheel load on the front wheel counteracts wheelie inclination, traction control regulates less, more driving power is converted into acceleration and the driver achieves faster lap times. The effect of the winglets is also noticeable in curves and when braking, the downforce allows later braking and ensures increased cornering stability.

I've been told BMW is trying to hit a ~$33K price point.

That would be some serious money for two wheelers
