BMW Motorrad has announced a number of 2016 model year updates including the new Dynamic Brake Light, a special-edition model and new colour options.
Dynamic Brake Light.
As part of BMW Motorrad’s Safety 360° strategy, Dynamic Brake Light has been created as a passive safety feature. The system, which is integrated into the BMW advanced motorcycle braking system ABS Pro, operates in two stages.
If the rider brakes from over 50km/h, the rear brake light flashes at a rate of 5Hz, making the motorcycle as visible as possible to other road users.
Additionally, if the speed drops below 14km/h then the hazard warning lights are automatically activated, before being switched off once the rider accelerates back up to 20km/h.
BMW ABS Pro.
BMW Motorrad’s cornering braking system ABS Pro, which debuted as a factory-fit option on the 2015 S 1000 XR, will be available to order on the 2016 R 1200 GS and R 1200 GS Adventure.
The innovative system will also be included as standard on the 2016 K 1600 GT, GTL and GTL Exclusive models.
New Dynamic Brake Light will be available on 2016 models:
- R 1200 GS
- R 1200 GS Adventure
- S 1000 XR
- K 1600 GT, GTL and GTL Exclusive (as standard)
