Four New 2017 BMW Models Confirmed for EICMA

BMW Motorrad surely unveiled some new exciting models for 2017 at INTERMOT, but it looks to have another ace up its sleeve for EICMA... Actually four of them.

The company has recently confirmed it will unveil four new motorcycles at the EICMA show next month in Italy. And if you love the new R nineT range, there’s good news for you, as one of the new models is part of the lineup.

But what shape will the R nineT take this time? Well, there’s only one thing left on the table, and that is a model derived from the Concept Lac Rose, described by BMW at the time as “G/S meets BMW R nineT.”

This will transform the roadster into a brutal Dakar beast, adding a beak-like front mud guard, headlight cowl and windshield, a larger tank, short seat, a bash plate and some knobby tires.

“Here, another BMW motorcycle from the Heritage world of experience will see its world premiere. The family of classic yet modern motorcycles featuring the distinctive air-cooled flat-twin boxer engine will then number a total of five fascinating models. And the lead model in this world of experience, the R nineT, also has several technical and visual modifications in store at the EICMA,” BMW Motorrad said.

Next, the company says it’s going to put out two new adventure bikes, one of them most probably being the G 310 GS, which is based on the single-cylinder G 310 R model. The second one will have to be a revised R 1200 GS which was the best-selling BMW model lately and definitely needs to be Euro4 compliant starting 2017.

The last new model on the list could be a luxury tourer, and with the introduction of the new BMW K 1600 B bagger, the K 1600 GT is next to get updated.
