BMW is a symbol of high quality products in the automobile and motor industry, and it is one of the best producers of the world sport auto and sport motorcycle. The company constantly includes various innovations into the production line and BMW lovers try to keep a close eye on it in order not to miss the changes.
The owners love and value their bmw bikes and share their experience with the others. There is a great amount of bmw bikes clubs and web sites, the members of which arrange meetings, forums and motor rallies, either international or domestic, discuss their driving experience and news in the BMW world.
One of the most favorite attractions of bmw bikers is the BMW Motorrad USA. The event takes place in Beemer Ville USA and organizes demo rides on the current and new BMW models. The Motorrad gives a possibility to watch the rally and to visit the yearlong exhibition of the AMA Hall of Fame Museum called "BMW: the Mastery of Speed" (started in June 2005).
The exhibition presents a group of sport bmw bikes from the R47 "Rennmachine" to the most powerful bike ever made K1200R. Traditionally, BMW Motorrad USA contains the BMW technical seminars on the new BMW models, engines, accessory lines and suspension technology. This is an excellent opportunity for riders to know more about their favorites. If you are a lover of bmw bikes, unfortunately, you cannot visit the BMW Motorrad and participate in the BMW seminar, what should you do? Certainly, you should read about the newest and the greatest of BMW.
Here we will dwell on the two newest models of bmw bikes, those of 2005, and describe their technical characteristics, as they are the most important things for any biker.
The model R1200RT has become available in April 2005. The producers have completed this sport vehicle comfortable with its electric windshield, a two-section adjustable seat, a Paralever and Telelever suspension systems. The engine is air-cooled/oil-cooled Boxer twin-cylinder. The model is supplied with six-speed transmission, front and rear partial integral ABS brakes.
R1200RT is available in dark graphite metallic, piedmont red metallic and granite gray metallic colors.
The next of 2005 bmw bikes is K1200S. The model is a first full-bore sports bike with the speeding from zero to sixty in 2.8 seconds and 167 horsepower engine of a liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder type. The motorcycle is equipped with electronic gadgets and six-speed transmission. The model is available in granite gray metallic, indigo blue metallic, alpine white, sun yellow, white aluminum metallic and dark graphite metallic colors.
These 2005 bmw bikes totally change any mind of what the best bike should be and make a motor sport lover buy them. However, the old bmw bikes and those, which are no longer in the production, still have their fans and occupy the leading positions in the books and magazines.
Some BMW owners consider the old models to be much better than the new ones in everything, beginning with a performance and ending with a comfortable driving. Possibly, this is only a habit and reluctance of BMW owners to change their old reliable "friend" for a new one.
