BMW is the first motorcycle manufacturer to offer the advanced safety system “Intelligent emergency call”, a GPS-supported locating device that in case of accident calls the emergency services sending out the position data. The system can be automatically or manually triggered even in case the motorcycle breaks down.
The leather seat is wide and comfortable and can be heated when needed. Its height is only 810 mm from the ground which, in our opinion, is an advantage when departing or stopping at a light because you can easily reach the ground with your feet. While riding the almost 350 kg of the motorcycle can hardly be felt.
The smoothness and dynamics of the engine allow a very wide use, the pickup from any gear is effortless and the unexpected maneuverability underlines the efforts made to optimize weight distribution.
By riding smoothly, long distance trips can be easily dealt with. On hairpin turns, as soon as the throttle is opened the engine rpm increase, even if in 4th gear, offering a strong and linear power output, there are almost no vibrations, the electrically adjustable windshield excellently protects against the wind and with all the other comforts allow for a relaxed and pleasant ride. Unexpected is the fun experienced in riding this tourer in a sporty way, the 3.2 seconds it takes to reach100 km/h offer the satisfaction of passing other vehicles even on short straight stretches of road. The sound of the six-cylinder engine when accelerating, recalls that of an aspirated turbo engine making the ride even more pleasant. With these brakes you can take the liberty of late braking on occasion because you can still have the full control of your machine.
