BMW has updated its lineup for the coming year. Motorrad has done some minor tweaks and added new color schemes for 2019. The updated model lineup includes BMW G310R, S1000R, R1200GS, and RnineT.
The company has replaced the old self-canceling turn signals with new ‘comfort’ signals. Earlier, it was offered with the higher-end bikes only. The older system used to take time and distance as the parameters before stopping the blinkers.
BMW Motorrad Updates Its 2019 Lineup
The new technology will consider more complex factors like speed in order to turn off the blinkers at the appropriate time. Besides blinkers, BMW has updated its Motorrad Connected app. Now, it will include a revised mapping system with TomTom navigation.
It will be equipped with a new ‘Winding route’ option. It helps in taking the twistiest of roads with ease while touring. The new stock of BMW bikes will be available on sale in August in overseas markets. Then, it will arrive in India, later this year.
Let’s go through some model-specific changes.
The upcoming BMW G310R has got a new color. The original Blue and White color paint scheme will now be replaced with a red paint scheme internationally. So, it will come with the same color variant in India too.
The bonkers super naked S1000R will now be sold with a new metallic black paint replacing the older White and Blue combo.
The trademark blue color of R1200GS will be gone. It will now feature a metallic black paint scheme. The S1000XR will also get the same scheme.
The two-wheeled saloons – K1600GT and GTL also gets new colors as well as they will now come equipped with hill start control as standard. The GT will feature a black and silver paint scheme with the gold brake calipers.
While the GTL will now be donning a green and silver with chrome accent. The K1600B will come with blue color as well as hill control assist. Also, its height will now be reduced to 750mm from the ground.
Besides all the above, BMW R nineT range will now feature Dynamic Brake Light as standard with a new Option 719 paint scheme. The standard R nineT will come in Red/Blue and Green/Silver schemes. The R nineT Scrambler will have a black and gold option.
It is entirely possible that these are not the only updates the BMW motorcycles will be receiving. We are expecting that BMW will revamp all of its models sometime later in 2018.
