It was just last week that we brought you news of a special edition 2015 BMW K1300S Motorsport. In fact it’s not only the K1300S that has been on the upgrade list and BMW Motorrad has announced updates for its 2015 lineup of motorcycles.
2015 BMW R1200GS
The rugged dual sport motorcycle would be fitted with a new crankshaft with increased gyrating masses similar to the R1200GS Adventure and R1200RT. Also BMW is offering BMW Motorrad Keyless Ride System and the Shift Assistant Pro as optional equipment. BMW states that for the first time, the Keyless Ride System would replace the conventional ignition lock. Locking and unlocking of the ignition, steering lock, fuel filler cap and storage compartments would be carried out by a transponder integrated in the key. The motorcycle can be unlocked within a range of two metres.
The Shift Assistant Pro aids the rider to change gears without any clutch input. However BMW states that the Shift Assistant Pro is not an automatic transmission and simply provides gear shift support. While the Shift Assistant Pro is activated, the cruise control automatically gets deactivated for safety reasons.
Earlier shades of Thunder grey metallic and Bluefire will be discontinued and the 2015 BMW R1200GS would be available in Alpine white, Frozen dark blue and Black storm metallic colours.
