2019 BMW models add new colours, equipment 

2019 BMW Motorrad Spezial

New colours and equipment have been added to the 2019 BMW line-up of model revisions, but we are not expected to see their new models until the Intermot motorcycle show in Cologne in October and the EICMA show in Milan in November.

The model revisions also include a new app and “comfort run indicators”, or self-cancelling indicators.

They will be standard on most BMW Motorrad models with the exception of the C 650 Sport, C 650 GT, G 310 GS, G 310 R, F 800 R, F 800 GT, S 1000 RR and S 1000 R.

The indicators cancel depending on a complex algorithm involving road speed. They were previously  based on a fixed time or distance which we found was too long.

This is a safety feature that should be on every bike to avoid other motorists thinking we are turning when we have simply forgotten to turn off our indicators. There is not a car in the world that does not have this simple safety feature.

App update

BMW has also updated its app to version 1.6 with extra features. The digital maps will be based on TomTom navigation with the “winding route” navigation option.

Owners need to update the app in August and download the new free maps.
