BMW Motorrad 2013 Model Updates

BMW Motorrad has announced updates to their 2013 model year lineup. Not all models, colors or packages will be available in all markets so contact your dealership for specifics. They should be able to order available models starting in August 2012. While ABS was standard on models imported to the US in 2012, the big news is ABS will now be standard on all models worldwide. This is part of BMW Motorrad’s Safety 360° program we discussed a few days ago. BMW developed and was the first to introduce a serial production motorcycle with anti-lock brakes in 1988. This is a proactive step, clearly pre-empting the requirement for ABS which is likely to be introduced in 2016 for all newly registered motorcycles in Europe. According to BMW the model years changes are:

    What is wrong with bright red or bright yellow as an option on more bikes? Some of the colors are so drab they actually seem dangerous because the bike is invisible against the asphalt or sky. Please BMW. More color options!
