Lighter and Faster than Ever
RDS From 27th February To 1st March, 2015
BMW Motorrad has said that it would introduce its new 2015 models to the Irish public for the first time at the Carole Nash Irish Motorbike and Scooter Show. The show takes place from 27th Feb to 1st of March 2015 in the RDS Dublin. The new S1000RR Superbike will head a line-up that also includes the first viewings in Ireland of the Boxer engined R1200R and the latest F800R.
Ruth Lemass, event organiser stated: “There are numerous never before seen motorcycles on view at the show this year and I have no doubt that the draw of a class leading superbike will be a major attraction for many visitors. BMW Motorrad have always been leaders when it comes to designing bikes to suit the many and varied requirements of motorcycle enthusiasts. Their line up in 2015 proves that you can cater for the adventurer as well as the track racer without compromising on the quality and standards that is expected from such a prestige brand. I am looking forward to seeing these bikes at the show.“
The 2015 BMW S1000RR Superbike surpasses all expectations. The new machine comes with several riding mode options to cater for all conditions, including rain, sport, race and even slick! ABS and automatic stability control come as standard. These, coupled with the option of adding a dynamic traction control system, enables the rider to enjoy unprecedented levels of handling safety, performance and comfort as the bike can now be adapted to all riding conditions.
For the road user the new one litre superbike will have cruise control, making it the first in the superbike class to have this feature. The S1000RR will be available in racing red and light white, black storm metallic and the traditional blue and white BMW Motorsport colours.
Howard Godolphin, BMW Motorrad Ireland’s motorcycle manager stated: “I have no doubt the S1000RR will be a major draw to the show. The original version set the benchmark for the superbike class five years ago. It has managed since then to remain the quickest, the smartest and the most comfortable 1000cc superbike to ride. The new version we are launching surpasses this already high reference point and our designers have, without doubt, achieved their brief to create a motorcycle that has sharper performance while being even more rider friendly. I am looking forward to welcoming visitors to our stand and showing them why we set the standards that others follow.”
In addition to the class-leading Superbike, BMW Motorrad are launching several other models at the show that have not been seen before in Ireland. The R1200R boxer and the F800R boast improvements in comfort, dynamism and touring capability as well as improvements to their engines, suspension components, seating and styling. Seeing these bikes in the flesh for the first time is an additional incentive for the visitor to come along and visit the BMW stand at the show.
