BMW to debut six new models at Motorcycle Live

Following the global unveiling at EICMA, UK fans will be able to see the new S100RR, R1250GS Adventure and the rest of the 2019 range at the NEC later this month

2019 S1000RR

FROM THE FASTER, lighter and easier-to-handle new S1000 RR, to the all R 1250 GS Adventure, the BMW Motorrad stand will be interactive with celeb interviews, the popular ‘live experience’ and a demonstration zone which features off-road expert Simon Pavey’s team giving hints and tips for the off-road inclined.

The hotly-anticipated update of the S1000 RR we saw at EICMA should be one of the big draws of the stand and includes BMW ShiftCam technology, 11kg weight saving over the old model and a new, svelte design direction. Producing 207 bhp the re-designed S1000 RR is claimed to be faster and more agile than the already capable, and very successful, outgoing model.

The GS range will also be on display and has been bolstered with the latest developments to the R 1250 GS Adventure, which features revised ride by wire throttle and a 1254cc engine that produces a claimed 134hp. For the middleweight adventurist, the addition of the F850 GS Adventure means a more accessible route into GS ownership, for riders that are looking for the capability of a true adventure bike, with added everyday ease of use.

New for this year is the ‘World of BMW’ which allows visitors of all levels to taste its range of two-wheel experiences – from those learning to ride and develop road skills, to motorcyclists tackling off-road riding and touring the world. BMW Rider Training will be on hand to enable beginners to get to grips with the basics of motorcycle controls on a rolling road while Motorrad Tours will inspire visitors with the best motorcycling roads that the world has to offer.

Motorcycle Live takes place between 17-25 November at NEC, Birmingham, you can find BMW Motorrad in Hall 2, at stand 2B20. Alongside more than 40 BMW machines on the stand, visitors can browse a selection of BMW Rider equipment and accessories.
