BMW Motorrad Malaysia to Introduce 4 New Models This Weekend

BMW Motorrad Malaysia will unveil four new motorcycles – the new S1000RR, R1200GS, K1600B and R nineT Urban G/S – at the BMW Motorrad Nightfuel event in Bayan Lepas, Penang this weekend.

Said event takes place this Saturday, 9 September 2017 from 7 pm at a special seaside open space in the Bayan Lepas area close to the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge.

BMW S1000RR (RM106,900)

For the model year 2017, the 999 cc in-line four-cylinder engine has been adapted to meet the requirements of the EU4 pollutant class. The peak output is still 199 hp at 13,500 rpm and the maximum torque of 113 Nm is reached at 10,500 rpm. It also has a wide engine speed range available for use, and almost the entire maximum torque is available from approximately 9,500 (112 Nm) to 12,000 rpm (113 Nm).

The supersport features Rain, Sport and Race modes, as well as Race ABS as standard. New additions to the standard trim include Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) with banking sensor and seven levels of fine adjustment.

The new S1000RR is also now configured standard with passenger seat. It is available in Granite Grey/Black Storm and Racing Red/Light White colour schemes.

BMW R1200GS (RM105,900)

One of the most popular travel enduro bikes in the world, the R1200GS has now been optimised in a wide range of areas. The Malaysian market version has been customised with on-road tyres, standard comfort seats and centre stand, ensuring a convenient and pleasant daily-commuting.

As before, the bike is powered by an air/liquid-cooled boxer engine with 125 hp at 7,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 125 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The unit now has an altered catalytic converter and a new data status for the engine management to meet the latest EU4 requirements.

The 2017 version also sees the addition of a judder damper on the transmission output shaft and a revision of the selector drum actuator and transmission shafts.

BMW K1600B (RM159,900)

Largely based on the K1600GT, the bagger is powered by a six-cylinder engine that churns out 160 hp. It implements its backward sloping linear design with a completely reconstructed rear section. This not only makes it look low-lying and slender, but also reduces the height of the passenger seat.

The bike is particularly easy to manoeuvre thanks to the reverse assist feature, which is activated at the press of the “R” button on the left handlebar. Available as an option, the Shift Assistant Pro allows the rider to shift up and down without activating the clutch.

It is available in a new Blackstorm colour scheme.

BMW R nineT Urban G/S (RM87,900)

The new R nineT Urban G/S is quite different in style but equally classic in character. It draws on the genes of the very first and legendary R 80 G/S of the year 1980. It features the air/oil-cooled boxer engine with a capacity of 1,170 cc and an output of 110 hp, combined with a six-speed gearbox. The stainless steel exhaust system is positioned on the left-hand side to reflect the classic styling.

It rides on light alloy wheels measuring 19 inches at the front and 17 inches at the rear. As before, radially mounted four-piston monoblock brake calipers, floating discs as well as ABS ensure sound braking. To prevent the rear wheel from spinning on slippery roads, there is the option of ASC (Automatic Stability Control) which is available ex works.

The R nineT Urban G/S can also be had with deep-treaded off-road tyres and filigree wired-spoke wheels.
