BMW Motorrad Australia has confirmed the pricing for two all new models due to arrive in May and July this year – the BMW R 1200 RS and BMW S 1000 XR.
The all new BMW R 1200 RS continues a long-standing tradition that stretches back to 1976 when it was celebrated as the first-ever mass-produced motorcycle featuring a full frame-mounted fairing, innovatively developed in a wind tunnel.
As the consummate all-rounder for both travelling and sporting deployment, it established the sports tourer segment. The R 1200 RS carries on this fine line of Boxer powered motorcycling excellence into a new era with two stunning variants – Lupin Blue Metallic and the Exclusive in Granite Grey Metallic Matt.
The R 1200 RS arrives in Australia with a host of standard features including integral ABS, dynamic traction control with riding mode pro, dynamic electronic suspension adjustment, cruise control, LED daytime riding light, chrome exhaust, tyre pressure control, on board computer, white LED indicators and heated grips.
The R 1200 RS Exclusive sets itself apart with a design style appealing to touring riders with sporty ambitions. Contrasting with the rich body colour, the engine spoiler, gold anodized brake callipers and the glass-beaded stainless steel tank center cover make this variant a sporty and exclusive eye catcher.
Factory options include gear shift assist pro, keyless ride, and seat variants (sport and low) as well as a touring package which consists of on-board computer pro, preparation for BMW navigation device, centre stand, luggage grid and pannier holders.
The R 1200 RS will be available at local dealers in May 2015.
The S 1000 XR builds on the tantalising and unique mix of innovative technology, handling, performance and safety currently available on the race-bred S 1000 RR, the naked S 1000 R and the iconic R 1200 GS.
The XR serves up its own individual mix of dynamic touring qualities, sporty performance and high levels of comfort as well as outstanding everyday usability in the world’s first true Adventure Sport motorcycle.
The S 1000 XR is available in two colour options, Racing Red and Light White.
Australian standard features include integral ABS, two riding modes and automatic stability control, on-board computer, heated grips, hand protectors and centre stand.
Two packages highlight the available factory options:
The Dynamic Package with ABS Pro, dynamic traction control with riding mode pro, gear shift assist pro, cruise control and white LED indicators.
The Touring Package with dynamic electronic suspension adjustment, preparation for BMW navigation device, luggage grid and pannier holders.
Further to this, LED daytime riding light, low seat and suspension lowering kit are available as individual options.
The S 1000 XR is expected to arrive in Australian showrooms in July 2015.
