Did you know that riding a bike has two distinct advantages? The first is, of course, that it is good for your health, but the second may be a little harder to guess. Apparently, when you take your bike out for a ride, you have the chance of catching upcoming models as they are taken out for a test session. Like this biker who caught the 2014 Mercedes S-Class .
The next S-Class is set to be unveiled by the end of 2012. It will adopt a new design language and an impressive list of new technology, including a computer-controlled suspension system with redesigned multi-link front and rear axles, more efficient engines, and a nine-speed automatic gearbox.
The engine line-up will include an AMG twin turbo 5.5 liter V8 engine that will deliver between 536 HP and 550 HP. Rumors state that the next S-Class will also be offered with a hybrid powertrain that will combine a powerful direct injected V6 engine and a 60 HP electric hybrid module.
