BMW Motorrad model facelift measures for 2015


For 2015 BMW Motorrad has decided that a number of models will receive facelift measures as well as the special model K1300S Motorsport included in the BMW Motorrad program. The models can be ordered from all BMW Motorrad dealers in the new configuration from August 2014.

Most of the models will get a new paint finish and color combinations, the models that will be available with different paint finish combinations are: BMW F700GS, BMW F800GS, BMW F800GS Adventure and the BMW F800GT.

For 2015 the BMW R1200GS will not just be available with new paint finishes. With a view to enhanced running smoothness, it will also be fitted with a crankshaft with increased gyrating masses as in the BMW R1200GS Adventure and BMW R1200RT. In addition, the BMW R1200GS can also be fitted with the BMW Motorrad Keyless Ride System as an ex-works option. This enables both the steering lock and the fuel filler flap to be locked and unlocked. The motorcycle is started using the starter button as before. With Keyless Ride, the key can always remain in the rider's clothing. The Shift Assistant Pro available as an option ex works allows the rider to shift up without clutch, enabling acceleration virtually without torque interrupt. It also allows downshifting without using the clutch.
The BMW R1200GS Adventure will for 2015 also comprise new features which make handling the ultimate long-distance travel enduro even more dynamic and comfortable. For example, it can be fitted with the BMW Motorrad Keyless Ride System as an ex-works option. This enables both the steering lock and the fuel filler flap to be locked and unlocked. The motorcycle is started using the starter button as before. With Keyless Ride, the key can always remain in the rider's clothing.

The Shift Assistant Pro available as an option ex works allows the rider to shift up without clutch, enabling acceleration virtually without torque interrupt. It also allows downshifting without using the clutch. As an option ex works, the BMW R1200GS Adventure can now also be fitted with a lowered suspension. In conjunction with a reduction in seat height by 30 millimeters to 860 millimeters, the BMW R1200GS Adventure is now also within reach of customers for whom the previous seat height posed an insurmountable obstacle. If a further reduction in seat height is required, the BMW R1200GS Adventure can also be fitted with the seats of the BMW R1200GS. This reduces seat height by an additional 20 millimeters.

As of the 2015 BMW R1200RT will be supplied in a new two-colour paint finish and can also be fitted with the BMW Motorrad Keyless Ride System as an ex-works option. This enables the steering lock, fuel tank can and storage compartments to be locked and unlocked without using a key. The motorcycle is started using the starter button as before. With Keyless Ride, the key can always remain in the rider's clothing.

The luxury touring bikes BMW K1600GT and GTL will be supplied in new paint finishes as of model year 2015. What is more, the two model variants now benefit from Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) as standard for increased safety when accelerating. In addition, the BMW K1600GT/ GTL can also be fitted with the BMW Motorrad Keyless Ride System as an ex-works option (already included in the fittings of the BMW K1600GTL Exclusive). This enables the steering lock, fuel tank can and storage compartments to be locked and unlocked without using a key. The motorcycle is started using the starter button as before. With Keyless Ride, the key can always remain in the rider's clothing.

Other new special equipment features for the BMW K1600 GT/ GTL include daytime riding light and Hill Start Control for easy hill starts. The BMW K1600GT and GTL are now also fitted with the instrument panel of the BMW K1600 GTL Exclusive featuring new scales and particularly high-end chrome surfaces.

Sporty touring combined with long-distance qualities and comfort as well as supreme riding dynamics and safety - these have been the outstanding strengths of the BMW K1300 S for years. With the exclusive special model BMW K1300S Motorsport, BMW Motorrad now deliberately emphasizes the dynamic character of this popular sports touring bike. Fitted as standard with ABS like all BMW motorcycles, the BMW K1300S Motorsport highlights its athletic flair with a new color concept in the BMW Motorsport colors Black storm metallic, Light white and Lupine blue metallic, combined with red decorative stripes. The black engine spoiler and the tinted windshield provide a fascinating contrast.

Reflecting its sporting aspirations, the BMW K1300S is also fitted with HP wheels for optimized handling, an Akrapovic rear silencer and HP footrests for rider and passenger.

And at the end of the list is the BMW C-evolution, which for increased comfort, the innovative electrically powered scooter BMW C evolution can be fitted with a comfort seat (option) as of model year 2015. This is also available as a special accessory for retrofitting.
