    BMW Motorrad presents the R 1200 RS ConnectedRide.
    BMW Group PressClub Global / 1d
    Motorcycle safety systems of the future are staged at the CMC Conference 2017.



    Munich. For decades now, BMW Motorrad has been regarded as a frontrunner when it comes to issues of safety in connection with motorcycling. BMW Motorrad has continued to establish itself as the trailblazer, be it with ABS, anti-slip control, dynamic traction control or rider equipment. BMW Motorrad is continually striving to improve motorcycling safety and to make riding on two wheels even safer and more attractive.



    With the R 1200 RS ConnectedRide prototype, BMW Motorrad presented a motorcycle, giving visitors of the CMC Conference 2017 on 12 October at BMW Welt in Munich, a look into the future of motorcycle safety systems. In addition to a crossing and left-turn assistant it features a large number of further systems designed to prevent accidents between motorcycles and passenger cars. Other traffic users who are about to disregard the right of way are warned as well as the motorcycle rider himself. This dangerous situation is detected and warning measures are initiated thanks to Vehicle to Vehicle Communication (V2V), based on a cross-manufacturer communication standard and extremely high-precision localisation via D-GNSS (Differential-Global Navigation Satellite System).

    In 2016 the CMC (Connected Motorcycle Consortium www.cmc-info.net) was founded by BMW Motorrad, Honda and Yamaha with the aim of promoting Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS) for motorcycles with as many cross-manufacturer standards as possible. The only cross-manufacturer consortium for motorcycle safety worldwide has been steadily gaining significance.



    The CMC takes special account of the requirements specific to motorcycling in view of the highly dynamic development of automotive safety systems. This above all includes Vehicle to Vehicle Communication which has not taken motorcycle-specific safety aspects into consideration sufficiently so far. The CMC Conference 2017 centred on the speeches by and the exchange of information with Pedro Barradas of the Directorate General for Mobility and Transport of the European Commission (DG MOVE) and Dr. Ulrich Veh, Security Director of the European Automotive Manufacturers Association (ACEA) as well as Antonio Perlot, Secretary General of the European Motorcycle Manufacturers Association (ACEM). Host and new CMC President Prof. Dr. Karl Viktor Schaller, Head of Development BMW Motorrad. Our aim is to promote the comprehensive use of cooperative safety systems for motorcycles at an early stage in order to exploit their potential for increasing safety as well as riding pleasure. This is why we are inviting other companies to join in.



    In addition to providing the opportunity for intensive dialogue, the CMC will focus on joint motor show appearances as well as events in 2018 in order to actively illustrate the latest safety system developments for two-wheeled vehicles. A foretaste of what is to come was given at the CMC Conference 2017 by the BMW R 1200 RS ConnectedRide prototype and two prototypes based on a Honda CRF 1000 L Africa Twin and a Yamaha Tracer 900 using a common architecture.

    The next important date in the CMC calendar is the ITS World Congress from 29 October to 2 November 2017 in Montral, Canada. This will be the worlds biggest event focussing on intelligent transport systems and services. At the round-table-talk on 1 November, the CMC will conduct an in-depth discussion on the topics of connected networking and V2V communication with experts from the US, Europe and Taiwan.

    Three podiums for Tyco BMW to wrap up the 2017 BSB season.
    BMW Group PressClub Global / 2h
    The 2017 season of the fiercely contested British Superbike Championship (BSB) has ended with another successful weekend for the BMW riders. The final round was held at Brands Hatch (GBR) and saw three podium finishes for the BMW S



    Munich. The 2017 season of the fiercely contested British Superbike Championship (BSB) has ended with another successful weekend for the BMW riders. The final round was held at Brands Hatch (GBR) and saw three podium finishes for the BMW S 1000 RR. Christian Iddon (GBR / Tyco BMW) secured two second-places in the Superbike class (BSB SBK) races. In the overall championship standings, Peter Hickman (GBR / Smiths Racing) is the highest placed BMW rider, finishing the season in fourth. In the Superstock class (BSB STK) race, Tyco BMW rider Josh Elliott (GBR) was third on the rostrum.

    To wrap up the season, the fans at Brands Hatch witnessed a grand finale with no fewer than three races held in the Superbike class. Iddon was second in both races one and two. In the final race, the Tyco BMW rider crossed the line in fifth. The results also secured Iddon the Riders Cup, the trophy for the best rider in the championship standings outside the title showdown.

    The showdown is contested during the final three race weekends of the season between the top six riders in the standings after round nine. One of them was Smiths Racing rider Hickman, who this season qualified for the showdown for the first time. At the final round, he claimed two sixths and one seventh place to finish the season in fourth overall.


    Christian Iddon: Its great to finish the season on a high. We raced well and the boys gave me a great bike. *Its definitely a direction we can go in for next season, so for me everything is positive. *A big thank you to all the team for putting a great bike underneath me, sponsors for their continued support and of course the fantastic BSB fans see you all in 2018!



    Peter Hickman: Ive finished every race bar one, have never been lower than ninth and to finish fourth overall behind three world class riders is a good achievement. We were the top BMW team and everyone at Smiths Racing has been fantastic all year so a massive thanks to everyone.


    In the Superstock class it was Elliotts turn to secure a podium finish for the BMW S 1000 RR. The Tyco BMW rider was third, while Chrissy Rouse (GBR / Mission Racing) followed directly behind in fourth. Joe Collier (GBR / Team IMR) and Adam Jenkinson (GBR / Northern Escalator Installations) also claimed top-ten results, finishing in ninth and tenth respectively. In the Superstock class championship standings, the highest placed BMW rider is Michael Rutter (GBR / Bathams SMT Racing) in third place. Rouse ended the season in fourth overall with Jenkinson in fifth.

    This came out of the blue to me. British base Visordown has done some good research into rumors in the past. Time will tell. It might give BMW a second bite of the bagger apple in many markets.

    BMW is touting four world premiers for EICMA. My guess is world premiers will be a new model in the sub 500cc or the mid-range of the product line - the already rumored new twin replacement for the 800cc models. Beyond that look for many additions current model lines. A K1600C could be one of those.
