Enjoy motorcycling whenever you feel like it without have to own a motorcycle yourself – BMW Motorrad will be making this possible in future with its dealer-based short-term rental service Rent A Ride. A website with smartphone capability enables customers to select the model of their choice. Availability is checked at all participating Rent A Ride partner dealerships in real time. The vehicle booking can then be finalised in the customer's selected region – complete with matching accessories and rider equipment if required. The selected motorcycle is then prepared for pick-up at the BMW Motorrad dealership in advance and the customer is given a professional briefing.

 

 

In this way, BMW Motorrad continues to expand the BMW Group's program of future-oriented activities in the area of mobility services. An on-demand mobility scheme for BMW automobiles has been available since 2011 – DriveNow.

Timo Resch, Head of International Sales and Marketing BMW Motorrad: "Mobility services are a future focus area that forms one of the cornerstones of our corporate strategy. By offering Rent A Ride, BMW Motorrad is advancing the BMW Group's development towards becoming a customer-oriented mobility company. If the first season of Rent A Ride goes according to expectations, the aim will be to expand the scheme to cover the full extent of the BMW Motorrad sales network.

BMW Motorrad will be launching its digital, dealer-based short-term rental service Rent A Ride in September 2018 in Germany, Austria and France, involving two selected BMW Motorrad sales partners in each country. Henning Putzke, Head of BMW Motorrad Germany: "This new mobility scheme gives our customers an attractive and straightforward way of familiarising themselves closely with a wide range of our BMW motorcycle models on a non-binding basis – by taking a weekend trip, for instance."

Details about the rental offers and further information can be found under www.rentaride.com

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
