BMW have announced two new models as well as several extensively redesigned models for the 2017 model year, from the worlds of Heritage, Tour, Roadster, Adventure and Sport. These motorcycles were all unveiled to the world at a major International motorcycle show held in Cologne last week.
2017 R nineT Pure - The new BMW R nineT Pure has been stripped back to absolute essentials and is set to become the very essence of a purist, classic roadster. Customers then have accessory options available to them to create their own truly individual roadster.
2017 R nineT Racer - Bringing a new, sporty look and riding experience to the BMW Heritage range, the R nineT Racer deliberately takes design inspiration from half-faired sports bikes of the past, but using contemporary technology to ensure the ride is sporty, fun and engaging.
2017 K 1600 GT - Regarded as the lightest and most compact 6-cylinder in-line engine for motorcycles, the updates to this Grand Tourer give the motorcycle more sophistication and comfort than ever before. The riding experience has been significantly enhanced and with the new reverse assist, manoeuvring the motorcycle has never been easier.
2017 S 1000 R / RR - The new BMW S 1000 RR – the virtually perfect supersports model has been further optimised. Ever since BMW Motorrad launched the S 1000 RR in 2009, the first 4-cylinder supersports bike made by BMW, the “Double R” has had a lasting impact on customers. The S 1000 R also gets a raft of upgrades including more power and a new chassis to keep this Super Naked at the top of the class.
2017 S 1000 XR - The sporty, touring S 1000 XR gets the same engine upgrades as the S 1000 R roadster which means an extra 5 hp taking peak power to 165 hp. It also gets new softer-mounted handlebars to eliminate vibration and gets an increase in potential payload of 10kg to add further credence to the all-round capability of this 999cc motorcycle. A new matte blue colour scheme adds a refined image too.
