These guys are truly dedicated to the work they do; so dedicated that they’ve even made this funny motorcycle ad for the BMW R1200GS. Inspired on Steve Erwin’s TV shows (notice the attitude, behavior and accent), only that the subject of talk was in this case a motorcycle, you cannot stop laughing when you see that guy, especially as you anticipate what happens.
To coincide with the end of the plant holidays, BMW Motorrad starts the model year 2008 with a range of new colours and equipment packages. The most important piece of news of model year 2008 is the new special equipment packages – in particular the safety package offered for nearly all models which includes ASC (Automatic Stability Control), ABS and RDC (tyre pressure control) as a combined feature. The advantage of these packages is that they offer tried and tested combinations with a (...) More
Sport Touring is a class well known to BMW because, well…BMW just about invented it. And now, with the completely redesigned R 1200 RT and the new-think R 1200 ST, the concept has been even further refined. The R 1200 RT replaces the exceptionally versatile and popular R 1150 RT, while the R 1200 ST replaces the R 1150 RS, the last version of the legendary motorcycle that started the modern Boxer era in model year 1994.
Riders of BMW Motorrad’s best selling super sports twin, the R 1200 S, will know that the bike’s sporting credentials are complemented by its ability to travel long distances.

The Sports Cases’ unrivalled look and style mirrors the dynamic design of the R 1200 S. Its (...) More
Even BMW fanatics are amazed at how our engineers were able to give the famed two cylinder Boxer engine even more power, topping the R 1200 S out to an incredible 122 bhp. The new S is also 22 lbs lighter than the previous model, and with a nimble Telelever front suspension, low center of gravity, optional ABS, hitting mountain passes of passes on the track is equally thrilling.
According to Texas-based newspaper the Austin American Statesman, the distinctive V-twin rumble that has followed law-breaking motorists for decades will soon be replaced with the precision-engineered sound of a BMW boxer engine. A few years ago, the Austin Police Department decided it needed anti-lock brakes (ABS) on its motorcycles to improve officer safety. But because its existing supplier didn’t offer the option at the time, officials looked elsewhere. Early next year, the department (...) More
Combining the potent torque of the BMW Boxer engine with the sophisticated design and smooth ride of a premium-touring machine, the R 1200 RT delivers an optimal mix of excitement and ergonomics. It’s equally at home nimbly leaning into a Rocky Mountain pass or gliding gracefully over a grey slash of Montana highway.
A two-section adjustable seat, electric windshield, and BMW’s rider-tested Paralever and Telelever suspension systems all contribute to the uncompromising comfort of the R 1200 RT - mile after mile after mile. Add to this a modular luggage system with plenty of capacity, and optional extras like the Navigator II system, and the only limit to how far you can go is how much time you take off of work and how much gas money you have in your pocket.
