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. With this in mind, a flexible storage solution is an absolute must. That’s why, due to popular customer demand, the Motorcycle Equipment team at BMW has now made their already-popular Sports Cases available for the R 1200 S. The Sports Cases’ unrivalled look and style mirrors the dynamic design of the R 1200 S. Its attractive silver coloured fabric is reinforced by a sturdy steel backing, which give the cases a soft look, while retaining the security associated with hard panniers.
The cases, which are unmatched in their ability to increase capacity from 17 to 25 litres, are designed in-house by BMW Motorrad. Such flexibility is made possible by a unique ratchet system that allows the outer lid of the case to stretch from fully closed to a semi-open position while still remaining completely secure and water tight courtesy of an integral lining.
The panniers can be easily removed with the bike’s own ignition key and the locks of the cases can be coded to match the motorcycle’s existing key.
The advanced design of the fitting kit also means the bike’s dynamic lines are not weakened when the cases are removed. This is due to the simple, unobtrusive pannier mount design.
For added convenience, the panniers come complete with inner bags, making it even easier to transport luggage without having to remove the cases. These bags are also expandable, enabling the rider to make use of every spare inch of pannier space on the R 1200 S.
The cases are now available at BMW Motorrad dealerships throughout the UK, costing £178($345) each, with the fitting rails and lock available at an additional £175.25($341).
