As a leading motorcycle manufacturer, BMW Motorrad has always been aware of its social responsibility in connection with motorcycling safety. In 1988 the company presented the world’s first serial production motorcycles with the anti-lock brake system ABS – the most effective technical safety bonus to this day.
A number of updates will be seen in the 2013 model of BMW Motorrad. These models will be available with new configurations from August 2012 onwards. For starters, the anti-lock brake system – ABS- which was introduced by the company in 1988 will now be seen on all models as standard. This step is being taken ahead of 2016 by which time it will be made mandatory for all newly registered motorcycles in Europe.
BMW F800R model will be available in a choice of three paint colours Racing Blue Metallic, Alpine White and Sapphire Black Metallic while older colour options will be discontinued. BMW F800R Dynamic will be seen with a new engine spoiler, LED rear lights, LED turn indicators and pillion seat covers. Additional package will cost €295 inclusive of all taxes.
