BMW Motorrad at Motorcycle Live.
BMW Motorrad’s full 2011 line-up to make UK debut at Motorcycle Live
Come and see the world’s most advanced tourers, the new entry-level GS and the future of city commuting on the BMW stand!
The entire range of 2011 BMW Motorrad bikes will be on display at the Carole Nash
Motorcycle Live show, including the K 1600 GT and GTL, the most advanced touring
bikes ever created; the new entry-level, single-cylinder G 650 GS; the updated Boxer
engined R 1200 R and R 1200 R Classic roadsters and the Concept C futuristic
scooter. Carole Nash Motorcycle Live is the UK’s biggest bike show and will be held at
the NEC in Birmingham from 27 November to 05 December.
The new six-cylinder K 1600 GT and K 1600 GTL combine high technology with
BMW’s legendary expertise in creating world-beating touring motorcycles. They
feature the lightest and most compact six-cylinder in-line engine in serial motorcycle
production, along with a host of cutting-edge innovations including Adaptive Headlight,
Dynamic Traction Control and Electronic Suspension Adjustment.
With the new R 1200 R and R 1200 R Classic, BMW Motorrad is continuing its long
tradition of roadster building with two 2011 models powered by the new DOHC Boxer
twin engine. The Classic offers a retro style and features tasteful chrome components,
spoked wheels and subtle design cues. The R 1200 R has a more dynamic and
modern style, offering an aesthetic option for every customer.
The G 650 GS is the newest member of the GS team. The lightweight, single-cylinder
adventure-sports machine also has a relatively low seat height, so it presents an
attractive means of entry to the joys of motorcycles and the fascinating world of BMW
Also appearing is the new special-edition R 1200 GS Triple Black. This version of
the legendary adventure-sports motorcycle features tank and front wheel covers in
sapphire black, forks and engine in plain black, cross spoke wheels with glossy black
rims and the swingarm, rear frame, and cylinder head covers in metallic asphalt grey.

Not content with showcasing a comprehensive range of new 2011 bikes, BMW
Motorrad will also offer a glimpse of the future with the Concept C. Hendrik von
Kuenheim, BMW Motorrad General Director, has announced that the company will
soon be entering the big scooter market. Immediately recognisable as a member of the
BMW family, with its ‘split face’ and twin-tipped front spoiler very much in the style of
the S 1000 RR, the Concept C’s aggressive sports styling suggests ‘dynamic riding’
possibilities previously unseen in the class.
BMW will also be hosting autograph sessions with racers including Leon Haslam and
Troy Corser on their stand B110 in Hall 2. Elsewhere, the BMW Motorrad Motorsports
World Superbikes team bike be on display on the Silverstone stand (R535) while the
Motorcycle News stand (G412) will be holding a free prize draw to win a BMW S 1000
RR, which won their prestigious ‘Machine of the Year’ award.
This year also marks three decades since the launch of the BMW R 80 G/S, so we will
be featuring a second stand to celebrate 30 Years of the GS in style. A major new part
of our show package will be a display of famous and historic GS motorcycles located
on an adjacent stand (B042).
Visitors to the stand will also be able to explore the adventurous and exciting World of
BMW, which features BMW Off Road Skills, BMW Tours and BMW Rider Training. Our
hot-off-the-press World of BMW 2011 Activity Brochure will be ready to take home.
The 2011 Style Collections are a new and exciting addition to the BMW Motorrad
range of Rider Equipment. As well as the iconic, instantly-recognisable Logo range
which features BMW Motorsports colours, next year sees the introduction of three
limited-edition, one-time-only fashion collections: Heritage, Double R and GS. Based
on BMW Motorrad’s rich history, striking new S 1000 RR supersports bike and the
legendary adventure-sports bikes, these casual wear collections will be on display for
the first time in the UK at Motorcycle Live.
