Whilst this year hasn’t started in the way we all hoped, there are a number of things to look forward to this year. Most excitingly, we’ve got some fantastic new bikes coming in 2021!
In this article we’ll go through each model in more detail and highlight some of our favourite features on these new models!
Setting The Touring Standard
Firstly, we have the new R 1250 RT. The RT name is synonymous with long distance touring capabilities mixed with everyday riding enjoyment and the latest technology. The new model promises more of the same, and then some, with new features such as adaptive LED headlight, Dynamic ESA electronic suspension and new riding modes.
The feature we’re looking forward to experiencing most however, is the brand new 10.25-inch full-colour TFT screen that debuts on the new RT. This industry leading screen offers an immersive riding experience with all key information, navigation and media clearly displayed like never before.
A Future Classic
Another Heritage model we can’t wait to see in 2021 is the R 18 Classic. Building on the success of the first ‘Big Boxer’ R 18, the new Classic model has everything you’d expect from a classic cruiser as standard. Saddle bags, large front windshield and additional LED headlights set this model apart from the ‘regular’ R 18.
With extensive options and customisation possibilities, we’re most looking forward to seeing the variety of specifications our customers choose when building an R 18 Classic.
The Ultimate Roadster Thrill
It’s not just Touring and Heritage that have new models coming in 2021, the new 165 hp S 1000 R promises to take the Sport segment to another level with a new look and improved technology. For the first time, this model adopts the BMW TFT display and standard features include Dynamic Traction Control, LED lights and three riding modes.
It’s the race inspired optional BMW M Package where the new S 1000 R comes alive. We can’t wait to see the combination of M Carbon Wheels, M Endurance Chain and M Sport Exhaust with the legendary Light White paint and M graphics.
G 310 Models Make Their Mark
The G 310 model range also gets an update in 2021. As well as a range of new paint schemes, both models get a new design LED headlight and LED indicators as standard, and there’s a number of ergonomic changes to help improve rider comfort.
The 40 Years of GS colour scheme for the G 310 GS that matches the bigger GS models is something we can’t wait to see in the flesh this year!
The First M Motorcycle
No 2021 new bike list would be complete without the extraordinary M 1000 RR. The first ever BMW M motorcycle, the M 1000 RR offers unrivalled performance, handling and technology for on the track and on the road. With lighter and revised performance internals, the S 1000 RR engine is taken to new heights in the M 1000 RR. There’s also Launch Control for perfect race starts and a Pit-Lane-Limiter for precise pit lane speeds as well. Hill Start Control Pro also features for convenient starting on slopes.
The most striking feature on the M 1000 RR is the bodywork. We’re particularly looking forward to seeing the M Carbon Winglets and how all the aerodynamic elements come together compared to the S 1000 RR.
That’s our round-up of the most exciting machines coming to the Barn in 2021. Let us know in the comments below which one you’re most looking forward to seeing in the flesh.
