Intermot 2016 – Two years have already passed. We need to return to Cologne. In October, the motorcycle industry will be present at Intermot. As always. KTM and BMW often show new models at the show. This year will be even more so.
The German colleagues say that at Intermot 2016 we will see two new models. The doubt remains. In fact, often BMW shows something interesting for the annual EICMA, in Milan. The Italian show will be in November. Therefore, it is very difficult to understand what is going to happen in Germany. We know that BMW has two new variants of BMW R Ninet. “Pure” and “Racer”. Two bikes that will come into production. It is unlikely that BMW can present both models on the same day at Intermot 2016. The German mark could share the two jewels in EICMA.
Intermot 2016, we could see the K1600 bagger
BMW will make different patterns resulting from its G310R platform, with a small displacement sports version of the model in collaboration with the technical partner TVS in India. BMW could make even a motorcycle ADV coming from BMW G310R. At least one of these bikes should debut at MY 2017. It is necessary to understand only if BMW will choose Intermot 2016 or EICMA 2016.
BMW could present a “XDiavel killer”, competing with the Italian brand in the class Performance Cruiser. It is impossible, however, to see all the new “R-bike” for 2017. Remember though that BMW should keep the R1200GS competitive against the Ducati, Honda and KTM. More likely there could be a new BMW S1000RR, that was updated in 2015. Although two years are few. The BMW S1000R and BMW S1000XR may receive an update. The S1000XR in particular, since the owners complain of vibration and other problems that prevent you from living the adventure-sports like it does on the Ducati Multistrada.
Finally, in 2017 might finally be the year when we will see the BMW K1600 bagger come to market. A new bagger we previewed at Villa D’Este this summer.
