BMW Has a New Adaptive Cruise Control Technology

From Cars to Bikes Soon you could enjoy adaptive cruise control on your motorcycle. The technology has been available on many new cars, but now it is making its way over to motorcycles thanks to BMW. If you’re unfamiliar with this technology, it’s like standard cruise control, but it uses radars and sensors to automatically slow down and speed up without you having to touch the controls. That might not sound safe, but it actually works really well in the cars I’ve tested it on, and I could see ...

BMW Motorrad Celebrates 40 Years of the GS

BMW Has Been Making GS Motorcycles For Decades Of all of BMW’s bikes, the R 80 GS might be the most important. It’s the bike that essentially created the adventure-touring segment. When it came out, it was a bit of an odd duck, but that was partly because people didn’t realize that by compromising a little bit on some things, you actually gained so much more. The R 80 GS started something new and different, and BMW is celebrating 40 years since it came out.  Since that very first GS, BMW’s adve...

See How the BMW S 1000 RR Came to be and Evolved

So Much Progress The BMW S 1000 RR is one of the best literbikes out there, and it got its start in 1992. Back then it was called the R 1100 RS. Today it’s a much more impressive machine, and it has taken a lot of work and development by the Bavarian motorcycle manufacturer to get the motorcycle to the point it’s at now. The YouTube channel FreeWheelie recently put out a video that shows the evolution of the BMW S 1000 RR throughout the last several decades.  The video starts with the R 1100 RS...

Could the TVS Apache RR 310 Birth a BMW G 310 RR

Another BMW Made by TVS? TVS has been in the news a lot lately due to the fact that it bought Norton Motorcycles, but the Indian motorcycle manufacturer has been in the big leagues for quite some time. The company has a partnership with BMW to produce the BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS. Now that could expand to another 310 motorcycle called the G 310 RR.  All this comes because TVS has an Apache RR 310 of its own. That motorcycle would make a lot of sense to use as a base for a G 310 RR motorcycle fo...

Here’s the new BMW R18, with specs, prices and more

It’s been ten months since BMW Motorrad threw the wraps off the Concept R18 prototype. Today we’re finally getting a clear look at the production cruiser, ending weeks of rampant speculation and spy shots. The R18 plays on two levels. On one hand, it’s a bid from BMW to tackle the cruiser (ergo, the US) market. On the other, it’s a nod to the boxer motor’s heritage—even more so than the wildly popular R nineT. The price for the showroom bike will be $17,495 (standard model) or $19,870 (upmar...

Top Bikes For The Track [2020 Update]

There’s nothing quite like a track day. We all know the bikes under us are capable of great speeds, exhilarating acceleration, and lean angles that would make a Michael Jackson “Smooth Criminal” dancer jealous. We also all know, or at least should know, that such things are not entirely legal, or safe, on the public roads. But when a dedicated race track hosts a track day, or your motorcycle club rents out a track for a day of fun, you can finally twist the wrist all the way, push your bike the ...

BMW Patents a Collision Protection Device

A Simple Solution In an age of technologically advanced solutions for everything, BMW has crafted a unique and simplistic solution to a serious problem—head-on collisions. The company recently patented a new safety idea that was spotted by RideApart. The idea behind the patent is that a wheel out front is smart in that it works as a crumple zone for the motorcycle. The way it works is that it keeps a motorcycle wheel pointed forward in a collision. The equipment needed to make this happen is su...

BMW’s Vision DC Roadster Cabon Frame Could be the Future

Using Carbon Fiber on the Frame Carbon Fiber is used in all sorts of applications on cars and motorcycles to save weight while still keeping something structurally strong. Up until now, though, carbon fiber hasn’t really become a norm for motorcycle frames. That will likely be the next step for the technology, according to Motorcycle News.
