Munich. Even before the 2018 season draws to a close, BMW Motorrad is already providing a taste of what will come in the following model year at the INTERMOT motorcycle show in Cologne from 3 – 7 October by presenting two motorshow premieres. BMW Motorrad invites all media representatives already at the INTERMOT motorshow on the press day (Tuesday, 2 October 2018), to an exclusive “press brunch” at 11.30 am.

Two new models and the 2018 model line-up live and up-close.
Every two years BMW Motorrad and over 1,000 companies in the two-wheel business from all over the world come together at the INTERMOT motorcycle show in Cologne to present their products ranging from motorcycles, scooters and e-bikes to 220,000 visitors. BMW Motorrad receives INTERMOT visitors at a stand covering 800 m² and provides an overview of its 2018 model range. The BMW R 1250 GS and BMW R 1250 RT, which were presented just a few days before, will celebrate their motorshow premiere in Cologne.

Apart from the current model range and the new products, visitors can also explore the extensive range of accessories as well as the innovative BMW Motorrad rider equipment at the BMW Motorrad stand. BMW Motorrad also has its own stand again at INTERMOT Customized in hall 10. 14 exciting BMW custom bikes are displayed on an area covering 180 m².

Wide-ranging support program.
In addition an exciting and varied program with the motto “Make Life a Ride” awaits visitors. On Friday, 5 October there will also be the Pure&Crafted Campus 66 Special on the Campus Fichtenhain area in Krefeld which revives the spirit of the Pure&Crafted festivals on a smaller scale. As a special event on Saturday morning (6 October), there will be a joint ride-in from the campus to INTERMOT.

There will also be plenty of adrenaline around when the “Sultans of Sprint” launch their 1/8 mile sprint race, which BMW Motorrad will also take part in. And of course the current BMW Motorrad models will also be awaiting test riders on the test ride course.

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:
