What is BMW Doing with the i-Brand?

10.20.16 - BMW i5

Recently we’ve seen news that BMW will add the i-Brand technology to at least one Mini model and to the BMW X3. This announcement makes me wonder if BMW is going to continue to use the i-Brand as just a testing ground for the continued improvement of the parent brand and the Mini vehicles that will be the result of some of the dynamic features that can be added to any of the models, but new information has me thinking we will see more models from the i-Brand in the near future.

At the Height of Dirtbike Riding

BMW R 1200 Adventure Motorcycle

Calling this motorcycle a dirtbike is most likely an insult, but it’s certainly not intended to be. The BMW R 1200 Adventure Motorcycle is at the height of riding for motorcycle riders who would like the ability to have their bike perform both on the road and off. This motorcycle is made to give you that and much more. The bike is built to be comfortable to ride, allowing you to ride great distances without stopping, and gives a high end performance that is needed when leaving the paved road for a desert run, mountain pass, or just taking the bike to the beach for the day.

At a price of more than $20,000 the R 1200 asks a steep price, but gives back the performance needed to enjoy some high ranging adventures. Currently this motorcycle is only commercially available in the European markets, but can be specially requests for those in the U. S. who want one. Regardless of the price, the R 1200 Adventure Motorcycle allows adventure on two wheels to be a regular occurrence rather than a dream, giving anyone willing to buy one the opportunity to head out for some remote location and enjoy the peacefulness of the wilderness.
