Some of the most exciting models to be released in 2017 have come from within the walls of the BMW Motorrad factory in Berlin. To celebrate, we're holding a New Model Festival on Saturday April 8th. We will have the whole 2017 model line up in store, plus offering test rides on our demo fleet. Lunch will be provided and it will be a day of fun, and everything BMW.
RSVP on our Facebook event here.
Which new BMW Motorrad model peaks your interest?
Is it the 2017 edition of the super popular S1000R? With a lighter chassis, revised electronics which include lean-angle-sensitive ABS and traction control, along with a bidirectional quickshifter, allowing for clutchless downshifts. Add a titanium Akrapovic exhaust as standard, the 2017 S1000R is a hot comodity in the new line up.
BMW S1000R engine output has increased by 5bhp from 157bhp to 162bhp and a 2kg reduction in weight from 207kg to 205kg. BMW have also made efforts to decrease vibration to the bars and offer their lightweight cast alloy HP wheels as an alternative, too.
How about the adventurous, top of the line BMW R1200GS Rallye? While the R1200 GS boxer engine’s output remains unchanged for 2017, with 125 hp at 7,750 rpm and 125 Nm torque at 6,500 rpm, the power plant sees the installation of a new catalytic convertor and engine management software. This is in addition to a judder damper on the transmission output shaft and revised drum actuator and transmission shafts, which were a 2016 update. The R1200 GS now gets Riding Modes Pro – activated by use of a coded dongle – along with Hill Start Control, ABS Pro and a dynamic brake light.
Suspension on the BMW R1200 GS is also new for 2017, with automatic damping and automatic self-levelling suspension, dubbed BMW Motorrad Dynamic ESA Next Generation. This optional item automatically adapts to the situation depending on riding condition and manoeuvres.
Or is it one of the brilliant new additions to the Heritage collection? The RnineT Pure, Racer, Scrambler or maybe the Urban G/S?
The BMW R nineT Pure is perfect for everyone who loves the classic roadster design and is looking for a pure motorcycle experience.
The R nineT Racer lets you relive the era of legendary superbikes. Far removed from obsessive retro romanticism, but rather on a customisable bike with innovative technology and in customary BMW Motorrad quality.
Feel the wind, lean into every curve and experience the freedom in every meter you ride – the BMW R nineT Scrambler empowers you to do your own thing. Tough, unconventional, and against established standards, it goes wherever you want. Made for true characters who want their bike to be pure, minimalistic and break all the rules.
Enjoy the confident feel of a boxer with an upright and relaxed riding position, coupled with modern technology. Choose from countless customising options for your own unique ideas. The R nineT Urban G/S makes a clear statement: It pays tribute to the early days of BMW Motorrad's G/S success story.
Maybe the original is what you're after? Motorcycling as a sign of pure freedom: landscape, corners, straights. Every metre counts. This is precisely your path. The R nineT is the perfect companion and knows hardly any limits when it comes to your personal fulfilment – also thanks to its countless customising possibilities.
