BMW has revealed its new safety cars for the 2021 MotorGP season.

This year marks the first time that BMW M GmbH is presenting three new safety cars and a new safety bike for one season.

The BMW M3 safety car gets a sport modified exhaust system
In Qatar, the BMW M3, the BMW M4 and the BMW M5 CS safety cars will be celebrating their debuts. They will also be joined by the new BMW M 1000 RR safety Bike. The BMW M 1000 RR is the first M model from BMW Motorrad and the racing version will be appearing in the Superbike World Championship.

The 2021 safety car fleet will be completed at the first European race of the season, the Grande Premio de Portugal on 18th April in Portimao. The BMW M8 Competition Coupe safety car, the BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe safety car, the BMW X5 M medical car and another BMW M 1000 RR safety Bike will be in action from then on.

Only a few adjustments to the cars were required to allow their use as safety cars in MotoGP. These modifications include the addition of light bars, flashing front lights, motorsport quick-release bonnet latches and emergency power shutoffs for overseas transport.

The safety vehicles will be sporting their exclusive colours instead of the classic motorsport white
The rear seat has also been removed from the BMW M4 Competition Coupe safety Car and a rollbar and four-point sports harness have been installed. The BMW M3 and BMW M4 safety cars meanwhile sport modified exhaust systems.

BMW M is taking a new approach to colours with the safety cars this year. Instead of appearing in classic motorsport white, the safety vehicles will be sporting exclusive colours from M production models.

The BMW M3 Competition Sedan safety car is thus finished in Frozen Grey Dark Metallic, while the BMW M4 Competition Coupe Safety Car is finished in Sao Paulo Yellow and the BMW M5 CS Safety Car in Frozen Deep Green Metallic.

When designing the livery, BMW M has again chosen to stay with a classic, purist safety car look. It emphasises the basic colours of the vehicles, while simultaneously underlining the typical appearance of a safety car. The new BMW M 1000 RR Safety Bike is white with the well-known M colours, bearing the livery that the BMW M 1000 RR will also be using in the Superbike World Championship.
