    Dear Readers,

    Forgive my absence and failure to post anything about it. On the day of my last post, I began a medical adventure that has kept me from posting. The adventure continues but I am getting back to a point where I can post again. Please give me a couple more weeks.

    Thank you for being readers and your understanding.

    Until then...

    The new BMW R 1250 GS and the new BMW R 1250 RT.
    17.09.2018 Press Kit

    For more than 35 years, the flat-twin boxer engine in the BMW Motorrad GS and RT models has stood for powerful and reliable propulsion when it comes to setting off on an extended tour or a long-distance journey. With the extensively further advanced boxer engine with BMW ShiftCam technology, the new R 1250 GS and R 1250 RT achieve a whole new level of performance, culture and efficiency.


    The press kit has 334 hi and low-resolution pictures of the bikes along with video links.

    Dear Mika,

    I was wondering if you were alright... You have no idea how much I appreciate your posts. I wanted to thank you for all your contributions, especially to this thread. Every time I see a new post from you in the Bench Racing & The Morning Reads, it makes my day!

    Thank you very much!

    Motorrad - On the Street and Track


    FWIW

    The manufacturer press conferences have begun at INTERMOT . This is the kickoff to the European Power Sports show season. If your news feeds have not blown up with information on the latest and greatest they will shortly.

    INTERMOT is BMW Motorrad’s “Home Show” and has been the site for many of the major releases for the Roundel product line. Multiple introductions have been promised for this year. Does the announced upgrade to the boxer engine in the GS and RT count among them or are their others to come? A new S 1000 RR is expected. Are upgrades to the rest of the 1000 product line in store?

    In November BMW Motorrad will be in Milan for the EIMCA Show. The BMW Rider Accessory line normally plays a big role for this event; however, not just gear. The S 1000 XR made its debut at Milan after the INTERMOT show had been used for product updates to other lines. Is a sub 500cc sibling in the works for current G line?

    As time permits I will update you with BMW Pressclub and other manufacturer information. Until then, enjoy today’s post as a way to tide you over.

    FWIW

    Tuesday is press conference day at Intermot. In the past manufacturers had an hour slot to present their product lines for the coming year. Accredited journalist would move from one conference to next. Brand fans and reporters specializing in a marque or two will stay and dig deeper with the representatives. Years with large model reveals the press conference might move to an earlier time and become a special event.

    BMW Motorrad appears to have taken a slot in the press conference schedule and used its time to focus on the R 12500 GS Rally and the R 1250 RT. The new engine is a major change and deserves the attention. Reporters will have had a chance to dig deeper into the wonky details of the new power plant, how it will roll out over the remaining wethead lineup and questions about the other Boxer line.

    I always hope for more. I must admit in the back of my mind once again I hear Peggy Lee singing ”Is that all there is.” My sense is that is all there is for Intermot.

    The Cologne show is BMW’s home show. The boxer is the backbone of the lineup especially in Deutschland. What is next may involve more boxer news, gear information and...

    Milan EICMA runs November 6 - 11. BMW does the gear reveal here. Milan is also the place concepts and non-boxer products often break into the news and motorcyclists minds. The gear reveal is on the schedule. Motorrad honchos keep talking about multiple models coming out. I hope that will include more than boxer variations. The rumor mill has a new S 1000 RR coming out. Watch for leaks in the press.

    Progressive International Motorcycle Shows open in L.A. when Milan ends. This was the show picked for the K 1600 B reveal and announcements of as many as an additional five U.S. market specific models in the future. I expect a U.S. boxer variant, at least in concept form, to show here. (This prediction and $5.00 will get you a coffee and fritter at the official BR&TMR coffee shop.)

    I put together information from BMW and other marques from today’s press. Once again I am left flat and waiting for Milan.
