Munich. BMW Motorrad Motorsport will compete in the FIM Superbike World Championship 2025 (WorldSBK) with the ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team and riders Toprak Razgatlioglu (TUR) and Michael van der Mark (NED). The goal is to continue the successful path to the top.

 

“We are very pleased to have Toprak Razgatlioglu and Michael van der Mark, two absolute top riders, in our factory team for the 2025 Superbike World Championship,” said Marc Bongers, Sporting Director BMW Motorrad Motorsport. “Both have proved in recent years that they belong to the best and will form a powerful duo on our BMW M 1000 RR next season.”

 

Van der Mark will enter his fifth season as a BMW Motorrad Motorsport WorldSBK rider in 2025, while Razgatlioglu has been part of the BMW Motorrad Motorsport family since the current 2024 season.

 

Van der Mark said: “I am very, very happy and honoured to continue with BMW. I am really happy that especially after the two difficult years they still have the trust in me and I think that this year’s results are showing improvements. I’m really happy with how the team’s working, how the BMW M 1000 RR is working and how we are still improving it. So it’s fantastic to be able to stay. This also gives me a lot of confidence for the rest of the season. I’m ready to keep building our momentum and be even more ready for next year.”

 

After several years with two teams, the ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team will be the sole team in the factory effort of BMW Motorrad Motorsport in WorldSBK. Jürgen Röder, owner of the Bonovo action BMW Racing Team, will not continue his involvement in WorldSBK for personal reasons.

 

Jürgen Röder explains: “I will be stepping down for personal reasons from 2025 on, and consequently, Bonovo action will withdraw as a factory team from BMW. I would like to personally thank all the fans who have remained so loyal to us, who have shared in our joys and our hard times. Many, many thanks, because without the enthusiasm of the spectators and fans, such an endeavour would not be possible. You are carried by the euphoria and enthusiasm, which I have enjoyed over the past years, whether in the IDM or the World Championship. It was a wonderful feeling to bring joy to others with our riders and provide entertainment and happy moments.”

 

“I would also like to thank our entire team under our team manager Michael Galinski, which has always done an excellent job,” Röder continued. “We hope that we can still make more impact this year. We are doing everything, our best, to move forward, and we hope that we can still provide a few signs of life from our side this year. My thanks also go to BMW. BMW has always been a fair and very reliable partner, supporting us with everything. Even this year, we are receiving the same parts as our colleagues at SMR, so we are well-equipped. Therefore, my sincerest thanks go to BMW and especially Marc Bongers for the support over these years. He has accompanied us through highs and lows, motivating us during the lows and looking forward with us. I think this cannot be valued highly enough. I also want to thank our sponsors for their loyalty and strong support over the past years.”

 

“I wish all the teams in the entire WorldSBK paddock all the best for the future, always a safe ride, which is the most important thing, and of course, much success for everyone,” Röder concluded.

 

“We regret Jürgen Röder’s decision not to continue his involvement in WorldSBK but understand it at the same time,” said Marc Bongers. “We thank the entire Bonovo action BMW Racing Team, Jürgen Röder, and team manager Michael Galinski, who have led the team with great passion and dedication, the riders, technicians, and mechanics, as well as all other involved parties for the excellent and professional collaboration in recent years. Now we will continue to give it our all together, in order to achieve success and secure strong results in the remaining races of this season.”

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information are available at www.bmw.de/wltp and at www.dat.de/co2/.
