BMW representatives will be on hand to answer questions about the K 1600 B, which was developed specifically with American riders and American roads in mind.

Other category trendsetters on display at the Cleveland Motorcycle Show include BMW’s new single-cylinder G 310 R – the first BMW roadster under 500 cc and the only BMW under $5,000 – and its adventurous GS version, the versatile dynamic BMW G 310 GS. Also on view will be several new iterations of BMW’s popular, retro-classic customizable R nineT: the new BMW R nineT Scrambler, the BMW R nineT Pure, the much-anticipated retro-racer, the BMW R nineT Racer, and the R nineT Urban G/S, which catapults elements of the legendary classic enduro BMW R 80 GS into the 21st century.

More About The New BMW K 1600 B

Largely based on the technology used in the BMW 6-cylinder tourer K 1600 GT, the new K 1600 B features a spectacular backward sloping linear design with a completely reconstructed rear section. This not only makes the bagger look particularly low-lying and slender, but also, thanks to the new rear frame, significantly reduces the height of the passenger seat.

As with the K 1600 GT, the Bagger’s 1,632 cc in-line six-cylinder engine reaches 160 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque. The bike comes standard with three riding modes (Rain, Road, and Dynamic), Dynamic Traction Control, and Dynamic ESA with “Road” and “Cruise” damping modes. Shift Assist Pro, reverse assist, hill start control, adaptive turning lights and more, are all available as an option. But, like all other BMWs, buyers can enhance the K 1600 B with BMW-specific packages that include:

  • Safety package: Adaptive turning light, daytime running light, tire pressure control TPC, and Hill Start Control
  • Comfort package: Shift Assistant Pro, central locking, alarm system DWA, Keyless Ride, and LED additional headlight
  • Touring Package: Reverse assist, audio system, and preparation for navigation unit.

BMW Motorrad USA Introduces New On-Board Luggage System

BMW Motorrad USA Introduces New On-Board Luggage System For Off-Road Riding

BMW Luggage
BMW Luggage

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – July 26, 2016… BMW Motorrad USA has introduced a totally new concept in on-board luggage and personal storage for the growing number of adventure riders exploring roads less traveled. Intended primarily for use when riding BMW GS-model motorcycles off-road, the Atacama Adventure Luggage System provides more flexibility when piloting expert-level, back-country trails as well as continuing the expedition off the bike at remote camping locations. The luggage system, which utilizes the same case carrier system developed for the original BMW aluminum cases, gives riders an extra level of flexibility and security when navigating more challenging riding conditions and further enhances the capabilities of the GS. Currently, the Atacama Adventure Luggage System is only available through authorized BMW Motorrad USA dealers.

Atacama Adventure Luggage System Gives BMW GS Riders More Reasons To Explore Roads Less Traveled

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – July 26, 2016… BMW Motorrad USA has introduced a totally new concept in on-board luggage and personal storage for the growing number of adventure riders exploring roads less traveled. Intended primarily for use when riding BMW GS-model motorcycles off-road, the Atacama Adventure Luggage System provides more flexibility when piloting expert-level, back-country trails as well as continuing the expedition off the bike at remote camping locations. The luggage system, which utilizes the same case carrier system developed for the original BMW aluminum cases, gives riders an extra level of flexibility and security when navigating more challenging riding conditions and further enhances the capabilities of the GS. Currently, the Atacama Adventure Luggage System is only available through authorized BMW Motorrad USA dealers.

“We are thrilled to offer this completely new line of on-board luggage for GS riders,” commented Michael Hernandez, Manager, Parts and Accessories, for BMW Motorrad USA. “This original BMW accessory product was developed in the U.S. with the needs of global adventure motorcycle riders in mind – a riding community that is expanding along the trend of riding big adventure motorcycles in further and further remote locations off road.”

The Atacama Adventure Luggage System supports the following BMW GS Models:

  • K25 (2004-2013 R 1200 GS/GS Adventure with BMW aluminum case mounting installed)
  • K50/51 (2013-Present R 1200 GS/GS Adventure with BMW aluminum case mounting installed)
  • K72 (2008-Present F 650/700/800 GS with BMW aluminum case mounting installed)
  • K75 (2014-Present F 800 GS Adventure)

Overview

The Atacama Adventure Luggage System includes the Atacama Side Cases and Atacama Duffel. The side cases require the purchase of an additional adapter kit by model for installation. A unique feature of the side case system is the frame and wedge that provide a solid mounting to the motorcycle and easy removal and installation without the need for straps and constant adjustment. The Atacama Duffel serves as a top case and convertible hiking backpack. Cinch straps (included) are used to attach to the motorcycle luggage rack

Functional advantages of the off-road soft luggage system include:

  • Wedge and plate mounting system – Unlike traditional soft luggage systems that use straps to mount, these mount solid to a wedge mounting system made from injection molded glass-filled nylon (designed to withstand severe wear and impact) for one-click on/off mounting and removal from bike, just like a hard bag which attaches to the BMW case mountings. The benefit is no movement and an easy on and off application. The soft bags won’t bounce around in rough terrain like traditional “over the seat” softbags and strap-based connection systems.
  • Offset side case sizes – 6.6 gal (25L) for the exhaust side and 9.2 gal (35L) for the non-exhaust side – allows for symmetrical positioning on the bike, while maximizing overall carrying capacity.
  • Bag Compression – Soft bags require the ability to compress their contents to maintain maximum efficiency when riding loaded. The roll top, vertical and horizontal compression straps on these bags allow for compression at all axes. Four side-compression straps, one bottom-compression strap, and one large top-compression strap, plus a roll-top closure, allow for superior compression/expansion capabilities.
  • 100% Waterproof Main Compartments – 22oz vinyl inner liners are radio frequency seam welded for maximum efficiency and 100% waterproof.

Features and Design

  • Beaver Tail – Quickly stash an extra jacket or rain liner, shoes, trash from camp, etc. behind this panel. It also provides even load compression and abrasion/crash protection, and can be peeled back from the bag for easy sewing-machine repairs. On the inside of the beaver tail, there is a hidden stash pocket for a spare key, paperwork, etc.
  • Sewn-in side pockets – Designed specifically to hold tools, tubes/tire repair, tire levers, air pump, water filter, snacks (things you need quick access to throughout the day without digging through your side case). On the larger 9.2 gal (35L) bag, each pocket fits two 2L fuel bottles or a 2-3L water storage bag. On the smaller 6.6 gal (25L) side case, each bag fits one 1L fuel bottle or a water bottle.
  • MOLLE Attachments –enables the quick attachment/removal of MOLLE compatible accessories such as hydration bladders, extra storage bags, holders, etc.
  • Aluminum D-Rings – Attach additional items with clips.
  • Waterproof Inner Liners – Completely separate and removable, these bags give riders the means to store items that they may be carrying temporarily or that may be soiled.
  • Model-specific BMW adapters allow riders to keep their hard bags, then use their soft bags on the exact same racks when they’re going on more off-road and dirt-oriented trips. This prevents damage to hard bags when riding through very rough terrain.
  • Liner on the inside – Protects contents from outside elements. If a tip-over happens, the outer shell, stiffener and beaver tail provide a protective layer for the main waterproof compartment/liner.
  • Outer shell – keeps all contents dry and allows all the features and accessory items like the beaver tail, MOLLE, additional pockets etc. to be sewn on the outside shell without compromising the waterproof liner.
  • Internal front and rear stiffeners help the bag hold its shape even under a heavy load.

Materials

  • Outer surfaces made from 22oz PVC material for easy washing, extra water resistance, and abrasion resistance.
  • Side panels and roll tops made from 1680 D Ballistic Nylon material.
  • High quality extruded aluminum pucks, zinc-coated steel mounting hardware, and powder coated mounting latches.
  • Front compression G-hooks and D-rings are made from T6061 aluminum with no moving parts, so they won’t break in a crash.

Features and Design

• Duffel consists of two separate bags:

  1. A sewn seam outer bag made from highly abrasion resistant material
  2. A welded-seam 100% waterproof inner bag made from 22oz vinyl.
  3. Outer bag is designed to absorb the abrasion and impact leaving the inner waterproof bag intact.
  4. This enables reliable waterproofing even after multiple bike drops or off-road slides.

• The Dual overlapping beaver tails feature a unique through-strap mounting system, making it an ideal spot to tuck items throughout the day without having to get inside the bag. For example, a place to store a wet rainfly if it rains while you’re camping. The overlapping beaver tails feature a zippered mesh pocket on one side, a removable clear map pocket on the other, and they’re a convenient storage spot for your cinch-strap tails as well.

• Double-ended roll top for easy access throughout the day without having to unstrap the duffel from the bike. With traditional top-opening duffels you have to undo the connection straps in order to open the bag.

• Quick-stash backpack straps, an internal frame, and a padded back panel for easy carrying when the duffel is off the bike. Put the duffel on your back, carry a pannier in each hand, and transport all your luggage at once. The duffel also works great as a carry-on or checked luggage, perfect for fly-to-ride trips. A central briefcase handle and a carry handle at each end of the bag.

• Large top pocket accommodates a 2L hydration bladder and has a hydra-port for the hose. An internal mesh pocket that’s useful for wallet, phone, etc.

• External tent pole pocket enables you to pack your tent poles separate from the main body of the tent, making field packing easier.

• With side compression straps, two roll tops, and a double overlapping beaver tail, the duffel can be expanded and compressed significantly to accommodate different load volumes.

Materials
• Top panel made from 22oz vinyl material for easy washing, excellent abrasion resistance, and extra water resistance.

• Overlapping beaver tails made from 1680D Ballistic Nylon for extreme abrasion/impact resistance.

• 4 T6061 aluminum corner D-rings and a front daisy-chain for quick attachment of straps and accessories.

Planning the most beautiful routes, riding them with like-minded motorcyclists, sharing experiences during the day and talking gasoline at night. With this in mind, BMW Motorrad has entered into a strategic partnership with the technology start-up Rever in order to build up a global community of motorcyclists.

Since launching in 2015, Rever users have tracked millions of miles on motorcycle rides in 119 countries around the world. The free Rever app, available for iOS and Android, works in conjunction with the Rever website to help riders discover the world’s best roads, create custom routes, track rides and share riding experiences across social media platforms.

This enables BMW Motorrad to digitally expand its riding experience offerings directly in touch with its target group.

“We see the future of motorcycling as a connected experience, one that has riders using the latest technology to enhance their rides and allow others to share their passion for riding,” said Heiner Faust, Vice President Sales and Marketing of BMW Motorrad. “Rever is offering a very promising mobile technology in our industry and we are very excited about the future business potential we see together with Rever.”

“Motorcyclists are extremely passionate, adventurous people,” says Justin Bradshaw, Co-Founder of Rever. “But we’ve lacked a motorcycle specific environment to share our passions, experiences and ideas. Working with BMW, we will bring innovative technology to the fore and make the entire motorcycle riding experience more accessible, more rewarding and more connected.”

Mark Roebke, Rever’s CEO and Co-Founder adds: “We are really excited to be incorporating new technology to enhance riding experience and grow the enthusiasm for motorcycling around the world.”

Rever connects a global community of motorcycle enthusiasts through the free Rever app and website to discover the best places to ride, track activities and navigate and share motorcycling experiences.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – March 30, 2016…BMW Motorrad USA will be the title sponsor of the third annual Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, April 8-10, in Austin, TX. Hosted by Revival Cycles, the event features approximately 150 custom motorcycles from the best builders in the world, alongside original artwork, in a historic downtown warehouse in the heart of Austin’s lively East Side.

“Technology and design are both vital to the future of the motorcycle industry,” observed Sarah Schilke, National Marketing Manager, BMW Motorrad USA. “As BMW raises the technology bar with each new motorcycle model year, it will continue to embrace its legacy for handcrafted ingenuity. We are proud to be the title sponsor of the Handbuilt Show and applaud the builders who push their creativity to engineer these rolling works of art.”

Since its inception in 2014, support from the motorcycling community, both locally and abroad, has transformed the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show into a destination for riders, enthusiasts, and fans from all over the world. The exhibition of custom builds, paintings, sculpture and photography draws a diverse crowd, ranging from the merely curious to die-hard fans, who celebrate the process of design and the satisfaction of creation inherent in the craft.

For those eager to see vintage machines in motion, the Handbuilt Show will offer the American Motor Drome Company’s Wall of Death live action thrill show. The performance (which originated a century ago in carnivals and fairs) will feature daredevils executing stunts along the vertical walls of a wooden motor drome while riding antique motorcycles and handbuilt four-wheeled racing machines.

For those seeking trackside action, MotoGP racing will be held at the nearby Circuit Of The Americas. For more a complete schedule of events and information about the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, visit https://revivalcycles.com/pages/about-the-handbuilt-motorcycle-show.

Munich. For the fifth month in succession, BMW Motorrad remains on a stable course for growth. In May 2015, 15,004 vehicles (prev. yr.: 14,088 units) motorcycles and maxi scooters were supplied to customers worldwide. This represents an increase in sales of 6.5 % as compared to May 2014. BMW Motorrad has thus achieved a new record for the month of May. In the first five months of the year, BMW Motorrad supplied a total of 62,928 (prev. yr.: 59,151 units) vehicles to customers. As compared to the equivalent period of the previous year, this represents an increase of 6.4%.

Heiner Faust, BMW Motorrad Head of Sales and Marketing: “With solid growth of 6.5 % in May and 6.4 % over the first five months of the year, we have significantly surpassed the results of the previous year. The strongest growth stimuli for our brand are coming from Europe and Asia. In Germany alone, sales increased by more than 1,000 vehicles as compared to the previous year. And we are seeing especially strong growth in China. Here sales increased by nearly 100% as compared to the previous year, reaching more than 1,100 units. Our market offensive is clearly starting to making itself felt. We believe the future prospects for the Chinese market are very promising.”

The new BMW sports touring bike R 1200 RS has been available since May 16th. And on June 13th BMW Motorrad will begin to supply the new adventure sports motorcycle S 1000 XR. This means that all five new BMW models are now available for the 2015 season.

Heiner Faust comments: “We continue to see strong demand for our new models. The market launch of our new R 1200 RS went very well. Our world travel enduro bike R 1200 GS Adventure is developing especially satisfactorily. In the second year after its launch it is well above the previous year. Our new supersports bike, the S 1000 RR, is also in strong demand. In spite of a significantly stronger market environment we were able to sell almost 1,000 vehicles in May alone.”

Meanwhile, preparations are in full swing for the legendary and world’s biggest BMW Motorrad meeting. The organisers are once again expecting several tens of thousands of customers and fans at the 15th BMW Motorrad Days, which is traditionally held on the first weekend of July (July 3rd to 5th 2015) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

As Heiner Faust says: “After the successful G7 summit, Garmisch-Partenkirchen now looks forward to its next event highlight. Like every year it will be a meeting of motorcycle enthusiasts, celebrities from radio and television, anybody interested – and people who simply want to enjoy themselves. Motorcyclists of all genders and ages meet up on machines of all years and brands. They come from all over the world. Even those who don’t ride a motorcycle can look forward to a weekend of unrivalled fascination. Anyone who is prejudiced about motorcycle meetings should try coming to the BMW Motorrad Days at least once – we cordially invite you.”
