WorldSBK: Markus Reiterberger supports new prevention campaign.

Markus Reiterberger (GER), rider for the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK team in the FIM Superbike World Championship (WorldSBK), is dedicating himself to responsible riding on the road. Reiterberger is the face of the new prevention campaign “What’s written in the stars for you?” started by the South Hesse police force. The dramatic rise in the number of fatal accidents involving motorcycle riders in South Hesse is the motivation for making bikers aware of the dangers and risks early on this year. In addition to thorough checks, the aim of the prevention campaign is to use flyers and other means to make motorcycle riders aware of their personal responsibility. The campaign goal is to make bikers aware of the risks when riding motorcycles, such as not adjusting their speed and anticipating the mistakes of others. “I’m really happy to be able to help the South Hesse police force as the face of this year’s accident prevention campaign, and thereby play an important role in spreading the message ‘It’s in your own hands’,” said Reiterberger. “Each year motorcycle riders die on German roads as a result of excessive speed, losing control and recklessness. That doesn’t have to be the case if you remember that racers belong on the racetrack and not on the road! This message is very important, and I want to help it reach those it concerns.” The Chief of Police Bernhard Lammel added: “We’re delighted that in Markus Reiterberger we have such well-known support. As a racer he is all too aware of the dangers of excessive speed. He gives our prevention campaign a face and makes it very clear that racers have no place on the road. This year, we will be focussing on taking action against racers and anyone breaking the rules. This minority of motorcycle riders is putting not only themselves at risk, but also others, and every accident is a result of destinies. We hope to reach a large number of bikers this year and raise their awareness accordingly.”

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:
