BMW has just told us what it’s going to show the world at the EICMA show in Milan in a couple of weeks. Well, actually, the details are are a bit sketchy but four world premiers will be taking place at the show, and two of those will be within the GS family.

Now, we know that one of the new GS bikes will be the small-capacity G310GS that has been spied on final test runs in the last couple of weeks, but what will the other one be? It could be an ‘Adventure’ version of the mini-GS, but we haven’t seen any pictures to support this yet.  Could there be a new large capacity GS on the way, or has BMW decided to turn the Lac Rose project to a production retro-adventurer in the GS range.


There will also be a new version of the RnineT in a heritage style, and a ‘luxurious touring motorcycle’.

Here’s the official word from BMW:

The BMW Motorrad model offensive now moves ahead to the next phase, with four world premieres and several motorshow premieres. BMW Motorrad will be represented at the EICMA motorcycle show from 8 to 13 November 2016 with a stand in Hall 14 of the Milan trade fair centre.


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.

Two more world premieres come from the range of BMW Motorrad models in the Adventure world of experience, making the GS family larger and more versatile.

Meanwhile world premiere number four features a luxurious touring motorcycle. As one would expect of BMW Motorrad, this model boasts a wealth of fittings that make motorcycle travel as comfortable and exciting as possible.


Just a few weeks after its international press presentation in Los Angeles, the new BMW K 1600 B will also be celebrating its first motorshow appearance in Milan. The bagger is a fascinating embodiment of Grand American Touring, combining distinctive styling with the supremacy of a 6-cylinder engine.

In addition to these new models, the 1,600 square metre BMW Motorrad stand also features the entire model program, an extensive range of Original BMW Motorrad Accessories including a wide selection of customising parts for the Heritage world of experience, the BMW Motorrad rider equipment for the upcoming season and all other products from the BMW Motorrad world.
