BMW re-invents its 800cc GS twins

03-07-2012 Hits:1787 BMW IOL Motoring - avatar IOL Motoring

F800 GS, right, has been re-focussed as a true dual-purpose bike, as much at home on a footpath as a freeway, while new F700 GS is geared more towards road riders who see gravel roads as a way to get to the fun rather than as a reason for riding.When BMW resurrected their venerable Rotax-engined dual-purpose single as the G650 they found themselves in the difficult positions of having two 650's in their range - one a 654cc single and the other a detuned 798cc twin (which, incidentally, also has a Rotax engine).

Now the Blue Propeller Boykies have sorted out the inevitable confusion with a masterstroke of mix-'n-match marketing - and invented a new model in the process, as well as seizing the opportunity to upgrade the existing F800 GS at the same time.

The F800 retains the full-strength version of the 798cc parallel twin, delivering an unchanged 63kW at 7500rpm and 83Nm at 5750. READ ON

Jerry 'Motorman' Palladino reviews the 2012 BMW K 1600 GTL

18-11-2011 Hits:1099 BMW Speed TV - avatar Speed TV

MW may have introduced a whole new motorcycle category with its new K 1600 GTL, the luxury sport tourer. While there are plenty of luxury tourers on the market, the Goldwing, Harley’s Ultra and Screaming Eagle Ultra, and BMW’s recently discontinued K 1200 LT, none of those motorcycles tilted as far towards the sporting end of the segment as the K 1600 GTL. Should anyone require more sport in their luxury tourer, BMW has you covered there as well with the K 1600 GT. The GT has a riding position slanted more towards a sport bike and does away with the tour pack. All other luxury features are still included in that model.

BMW 1232 – A Brand New Look for an Original

02-07-2011 Hits:775 BMW Kneeslider - avatar Kneeslider

In 1923, BMW introduced the R32, the company's first foray into the motorcycle manufacturing business. The 500cc 8.5 horsepower boxer, set the design and styling cues that BMW still follows in many ways. A lot of enthusiasts love the look of the original, but let's face it, as an every day rider today, it's simply inadequate. So, what if you could take that original model and reinterpret it with modern technology and power, not just stuff a big modern engine in the little antique bike, but instead, scale it up and build one from scratch? What might result? Enter Jean-Luc Dupont. Read On: http://thekneeslider.com/archives/2011/07/01/bmw-1232-a-brand-new-look-for-an-original/

BMW R100 Scrambler

BMW’s R series is seriously challenging the Honda CB as the custom platform of choice; over the past few months, a remarkable number of stylish 70s BMW customs have been popping up in the Bike EXIF inbox. This one was built by Karles Vives of Barcelona, Spain, and it’s an RT model—which in BMW’s complicated lexicon, means it’s a tourer. (This was best explained by Cycle magazine’s April 1979 test: “The new RT can best be described as a full-house touring version of the RS, which is a semi-touring version of the S, which is a sporting version of the pipe rack R100T, which is a bunged-out version of the R80/7. Which is a slightly overbored and subtly refined update on the discontinued 750cc model.”) The RT was also the most expensive motorcycle in the world in the late ...

A technical preview of BMW’s new six-cylinder tourers.

Luxury touring motorcycles are an American invention, uniquely suited to this expansive country and its uniquely unthreatening highway system. Travel Interstates from one end of the U.S. to the other, and except for a very small percentage of on- and off-ramps, you’ll be hard-pressed to find an unexpected turn, or one that requires as much as a 15-degree lean angle at the speed limit.

Harleys and Indians once exclusively ruled this turf, and The Motor Company has never ceded it; Electra Glides and Road Kings still are among its most popular models. But Honda began a new, more technically sophisticated interpretation of American luxury touring with the Gold Wing that also proved popular, and BMW followed with K-LT ...

Why would BMW spend the time and money required to design an almost completely new boxer engine -- OK, a completely new top end -- for just five horsepower and four pound-feet of torque?

It's difficult to exaggerate the size of the task BMW undertook when it decided, five years ago, to build a full-on superbike. For years, the big four – Honda Fireblade, Suzuki GSX-R1000, Yamaha R1 and Kawasaki ZX-10R – have all reflected the excellence of Japanese motorcycle engineering. Their astonishing performance is a perfect complement to levels of reliability and quality that manufacturers of less stressed machines rarely reach. Buyers in this sector look first at outright performance: the bike with the quickest lap time will win in the showrooms, irrespective of how relevant that might be to everyday riding. Heritage and race pedigree count for something, but riders are generally happy to swap marques each year, so any bike will suffer if it is not ...

BMW’s F800S and ST have been around for a couple of years now, and the combination of the 87 horsepower, midsize parallel twin and its compact, flickable chassis have won many fans worldwide.

MV Agusta

Mercedes-Benz strikes deal with motorcycle manufacturer


MV Augusta and Mercedes-Benz will work together to reach more customers.Having missed out on a deal with Ducati, Mercedes-Benz has bought a stake in Italian motorcycle manufacturer MV Agusta.

Ducati worked with the German brand's AMG performance arm to create a special edition of its Diavel motorcycle that might have led to more.

But the Volkswagen Group bought Ducati for €860 million in 2012, preventing Mercedes-Benz, AMG or its parent company Daimler from forger closer ties with the well-known bike builder.  READ ON


MV Agusta F4 1000R

MV AgustaClaudio Castiglioni, big boss of MV Agusta, would like to put everyone’s minds at rest regarding the future of MV Agusta. During the Misano launch of the MV F4 1000R he gave a personal promise that now his company has been re-structured and re-financed, it is totally secure and will always be there for its customers. Like fellow Italian marques Aprilia, Benelli, Bimota, Ducati and Mondial, MV Agusta has been through turbulent times recently, but as always their phenomenal Latin passion will see them through, so for that they must be applauded.

MV Agusta claims its bikes are the most beautiful in the world. A biased opinion of course, although not at all near the truth. While past models have looked and sounded like they would take on all comers, I believe they failed to deliver – especially on the track. The tables have now turned, however, as two of the current models recently finished third and fifth in the European Superstock Championship at Monza. Finally, it seems, the modern MVs have some credibility. READ ON
