In December 2021, we first shared information about the LEGO Technic BMW M 1000 RR set. While it’s not the first time that the Danish toymaker beloved by children of all ages around the world has teamed up with an OEM, it’s the largest (and arguably most involved) kit they’ve assembled yet. 

Coming in hot with nearly 2,000 individual pieces (only a few of which were bespoke for this project), there’s a certain degree of functionality to this model, as well. If you’re already conversant in LEGO, the fact that it’s a Technic kit probably gave that part away. Still, if you’ve wondered what it’s like to actually build this kit, then YouTube channel Chaos Causes created this time-lapse video of the build just for you. (After all, it’s all about perspective–$240 may seem expensive for a toy, or downright cheap for a motorcycle.) 

As you can see, the kit comes with a detailed manual to help you through each step of the building process. First up, you’ll put the transmission and engine together—and of course, both things are actually functional. You can watch how the gear shifting works and the tiny pistons in their clear cylinders. 

Honestly, it might be tempting to just pause the build here for a little bit and play with these two systems after you’ve put them together. Incidentally, this LEGO build took Chaos Causes around 11 hours to complete, so you’ll have plenty of time to spend on the process if that’s what you’re into. 

After you complete those important powertrain bits, it’s on to a cool display stand that also shows off key statistics about the bike. It is convenient because it supports the engine, and you can assemble the bike around it. That’s why the instructions suggest that you follow the order. From there, it’s a matter of building up all the other systems of the bike—rear suspension (including swingarm), front suspension, mounting tires on wheels, and so on. 

This build is full of stickers. If you’re the kind of person who loves small, detailed, precise application of tiny decals onto plastic, then you’ll enjoy this part. If not, it may be your least favorite thing about the kit—but there’s no denying at the end that the result looks fantastic. LEGO even included a selection of stickers that you can use to decorate your M 1000RR’s dash display.  

If you’d prefer to use a paddock stand to display your completed build, LEGO included that in the kit, as well—so you have a choice. Chaos Causes notes that the bike’s weight makes it difficult to place on the paddock stands. If you’d prefer a sturdier display base, you may want to stick to the more centrally-mounted stand that goes under the belly pan, that the kit has you build right after the engine.
