R Nine TFor anyone who has not seen the stock 2014 BMW R Nine T, Bob’s is pleased to announce we will have one on the showroom floor for an extended period of time. These models are coming and going as soon as they come out of the crates across the world, but thanks to a very generous customer at Bob’s, he has agreed to display his at Bob’s until he returns from his travels in a couple weeks at which time he will take delivery of this hard to get model. Odds are you will not have a chance like this again, so if you want to be one of the few that can say they have seen the R Nine T in person and to snap some pictures (she is very photogenic!), stop by Bob’s before its gone.

Small-Displacement BMW Motorcycles Debuting in 2015

tvs-draken-conceptI had to check the date on when we last talked about BMW and TVS partnering up to build small-displacement motorcycles together, and it looks like it was almost exactly a year ago. In that timeframe, the two companies have been quietly working, but rumors have started to heat-up as to when we could see a sub-500cc BMW motorcycle.

A cynic’s response might be that BMW doesn’t want to be perceived as late to the small-displacement party, especially since its sub-500cc machines won’t be ready until Q3/Q4 of 2015.

With Honda, Kawasaki, and KTM already debuting their 250cc & 300cc models, and Yamaha & Triumph set to debut 250cc machines shortly, it seems the only manufacturer without a small-displacement offering either available or in the works is Ducati.

Focusing our attention back on BMW though, it seems the first BMW machine could be a rebadged TVS, with the Indian company recently showing its Draken concept (shown above), which features a 250cc single-cylinder engine that makes just under 40hp.

“I know we have been silent on the TVS (Motor Company) and BMW since we had the tie-up. (the first product) It is going to be ready by the second half of next calendar year. All the work is under progress,” said TVS Motor Company Chairman Venu Srinivasan.

BMW and TVS are expected to brand their co-built machines separately, and for different markets. The BMW-branded machines will come to Europe and North America, while the TVS machines will go to India, Asia, and other emerging markets.

With KTM’s partnership with Bajaj helping the Austrian company surpass BMW Motorrad as the largest European motorcycle manufacturer, the German company’s new line with TVS should reverse that trend.

Increasingly the future of the motorcycle industry is happening in India and Southeast Asia, and it seems like just about every manufacturer has some sort of strategy in place for that reality.

Introducing the Incredible GG Taurus

Exclusively at their 2014 Open House, Bob’s BMW will introduce the incredible GG Taurus, a BMW powered, 175 HP, three wheeled, street legal creation from Switzerland that will be available for your personal inspection.

image009

The GG Taurus is sure to create immediate lust and outright drooling by every two, three or four wheeled enthusiast that sees it in person. Tell your friends, even those who do not ride motorcycles, to join you on April 26 at Bob’s. And yes, you will be able to touch it, sit on it and even have your photo taken while in the saddle to share with your friends on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other Social Media sites.

image010
Built by Swiss company Grueter and Gut Technik, or GG for short, the Taurus is a high performance hammerhead trike, a fascinating vehicle with a bold design and even more impressive build quality that conceals a heart thumping 1,293cc German inline powerplant. If you’ve ever seen the Ferrari Yellow Duetto sidecar rig that Bob owns, rides and shares frequently this was designed and is built by the same company.

Until now it has never before seen on US streets. The Taurus is now available for the first time through a small number of select dealers of which Bob’s is the first. The big-bore engine is capable of developing 175 bhp at 9,250 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 8,250 rpm, while being coupled with a 6-gear transmission along with suspension, brakes and tires worthy of a formula track car.

The Taurus weighs in at a very nimble 875lbs (without fuel or rider) and has a massive 9 gallon fuel tank to provide a vast cruising range. With a top speed of almost 140 mph, this is one fast trike that all of your friends, neighbors and co-workers will be seriously envious of.

The GG Taurus is the most exclusive 3 wheeler on the planet. This is the Ferrari of bikes and will only be owned by a select few. It is customizable so each owner’s GG Taurus will be exclusive to him or her. This 3-wheeled bike is truly a revolution that will turn heads anywhere and everywhere for the next few decades.

Looking Back at the 2013 Race Season

Jer-helmetThe race season is officially over and as winter sets in our Bob’s BMW Sponsored Racer, Jeremy Cook is already planning his comeback in 2014. With purchases like the HP Race ECU, HP Race Calibration Kit and a few other high performance modifications; Jeremy believes he will be able to produce winning results for the 2014 season.

The 2013 season proved to be a battle for Jeremy dealing with issues that many across our nation are also dealing with today like the sequestration, job loss and unpredictable financial stability but he still tried his best to stay focused and push forward. He did exceptionally well considering the personal struggles he had to overcome this season; still earning a 3rd Place in the AMA Grand Nationals at Virginia International Raceway along with multiple top ten finishes in most of the classes he races for the Championship Cup Series (CCS) and American Sportbike Racing Association (ASRA) Pro Series. The final event for the 2013 season took place at historic Daytona International Speedway back in October, The Race of Champions.

The event started out on Thursday’s practice losing two fellow racers/riders on the track due to an unfortunate situation that set a saddened mood across the paddock; a tough reality of the roadracing sport and many sports like it, where one seemingly insignificant mistake can have such a grave outcome. The next day (Friday), racers set out to practice again and Jeremy had one thing in mind and that was to safely find the correct gearing for the Bob’s BMW, Dead Presidents Racing S1000RR, which proved to be difficult being that there are many factors to consider when getting the correct gearing like: Are you at race pace? Are your tires new or old? Are you running the correct fuel? Are you following the correct line? Are you hitting the Rev Limiter on the banking? What gear are you dropping to in the “horseshoe”? It may seem like you can get out there and get a ball park gearing and do just fine but with Daytona that is not the case at all. Trying to find the correct gearing while not at race pace is a waste of time so first thing’s first, Jeremy got to race pace and in his case, once he got there he needed less gearing to open up more top end so he could obtain a higher MPH without hitting the rev limiter!

After Friday’s practice the team headed to Orlando for the Inaugural AIM Expo to meet up with Schuberth Helmets and debut the custom painted Schuberth SR-1 helmet done by Andrew Swenson Designs of Richmond, VA; the helmet is currently on display at Bob’s BMW. Saturday was the first race day and things were looking up as Jeremy placed 7th in the Expert Unlimited GTO (25min) National Championship race, losing out to AMA Superbike Racers Huntley Nash and Lloyd Bayley and AMA Supersport Star Stefano Mesa. This race showed Jeremy that the weekend of National Championship racing would not be an easy event as he looked at the races he had coming up all had top 10 top 15 AMA Racers racing in them; those in attendance: Nico Ferreira, Tim Bemisderfer, Jason Farrell, Bruno Silva, Felipe Maclean, Lloyd Bayley, Shane Turpin, and 1385250_196498987200204_1592201984_neven Mark Heckles (former WSBK and BSB Racer) along with a few others. Understanding his uphill battle Jeremy strapped on his SIDI race boots and did the best he could finishing 6th in Expert Unlimited Supersport, 14th in Expert Unlimited grand Prix (after going off track), 16th in Expert Unlimited Superbike (after going off track twice).

Although he didn’t walk away with any podium finishes he stated, “I feel like I learned a lot, I think in losing and struggling is when you learn the most, if everything was handed to you on a silver platter all the time how would you know to appreciate the winnings when they come? I mean I was able to watch some of the top privateers in roadracing go at it and in a few cases actually was able to battle with them myself. When they pulled away I watched their lines and listened to hear when they got on and off the gas. If you watch AMA, MotoGP or WSBK you always hear the announcers say well now that he got passed him he should just sit back behind him and go to school. That’s exactly what I did, I went to school. Who else can say they battled with Mark Heckles a former WSBK and BSB racers that raced with some of the greats like Troy Bayliss and Colin Edwards? I can! Daytona is a nightmare and a dream at the same time and I have been blessed to race there with some amazing talent, I can’t even describe the feeling of going almost 200MPH around the banking or what it’s like in slow motion to see Stefano Mesa come by you on the brakes into turn one sliding the rear tire to the point where it is squealing so loudly and when you swear he is going to high-side he drops the bike down to the ground and drags an elbow, it’s a beautiful thing.”

Jeremy plans to continue racing and depending on sponsorship responses and other factors he plans to race in the AMA for 2014. To help prepare for next season, he is planning to attend Colin Edwards’ Texas Tornado Boot-camp and any other classes he can.

Next year’s tentative CCS Schedule is already posted and everyone should try to make at least one event to cheer on our Bob’s BMW sponsored racer. Download schedule here.

The race bike and helmet will be in and out of the showroom throughout the winter so feel free to stop in to check it out and ask Jeremy questions if you see him. He will be at the DC International Motorcycle Show and the Timonium Motorcycle Show along with many other events at Bob’s in the coming months, when his race schedule permits.

The New BMW K 1600 GTL

Luxury Touring Par Excellence

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – November 20, 2013… The BMW K 1600 GTL Exclusive takes two-wheeled travel to a whole new level with a 118 kW (160 hp) in-line six-cylinder engine that melds superlative power, stylish design and superb standards of equipment and comfort.

Leading the BMW Motorrad tourer range, the “Exclusive” model already lays claim to class-beating specifications as standard equipment – central locking with anti-theft alarm system and ESA II (electronic suspension adjustment) for an optimum spring/damper setup regardless of load. The Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) enhances safety when accelerating, while the innovative new Hill Start Control feature takes all the hard work out of pulling away uphill, even when carrying a passenger and full luggage. Plus, like all BMW motorcycles, the K 1600 GTL Exclusive comes equipped with BMW Motorrad ABS as standard.

The film antenna for the radio that is embedded in the topcase lid is a world first and ensures the best possible reception quality without sacrificing the bike’s appearance. Long-distance travel comfort for the pillion passenger is taken to greater heights by a new seat, a heated backrest and comfortable armrests. Also found on the list of standard equipment: LED auxiliary headlights, adaptive xenon headlight, Tire Pressure Monitor, additional brake light, engine protection bar, floor lighting, as well as LED daytime running light and, for the first time on a BMW motorcycle, Keyless Ride.

The styling of the “Exclusive” model also spells pure luxury – from the fuel tank’s aluminum molding and fully chromed exhaust system to the new-look instrumentation.

The color scheme for the new K 1600 GTL Exclusive adds to the sense of elegance and aesthetic appeal. The bodywork’s four-coat paint finish in Mineral white metallic high gloss complements the striking chrome surfaces, contrasting shade of Magnesium metallic matt and the Glacier silver metallic radiator . The color-coordinated seat cushion upholstery, backrest and pillion passenger armrests add the perfect finishing touch.

Technology and design.
The new BMW K 1600 GTL Exclusive – luxury touring with six-cylinder power and impressive specification.
Safety, superlative equipment, comfort and dynamic power are must-have qualities for a touring bike of the highest caliber. BMW Motorrad already redefined those standards with the introduction of the K 1600 GTL in 2010. Boasting the most compact in-line six-cylinder unit to be fitted on a standard production bike, the K 1600 GTL took riding characteristics, long-distance capabilities and comfort to a whole new dimension, fusing supreme agility and handling dynamics with a luxurious all-round package.

BMW Motorrad is now upping the ante again with the new K 1600 GTL Exclusive, which combines the exceptional travel and touring qualities of the K 1600 GTL with equipment features and comfort of the very highest order to position itself at the pinnacle of the BMW Motorrad tourer line-up.

Like its predecessor, the new K 1600 GTL Exclusive is powered by the sensational six-in-line engine, which ensures effortless response under all conditions with its output of 118 kW (160 hp), peak torque of 175 Newton metres (129 lb-ft) and exceptionally smooth running.
The new K 1600 GTL Exclusive lives up to riders’ expectations of an outstanding touring motorcycle, offering luxurious comfort , an extensive list of innovative standard features, and top-shelf styling.

New instrumentation dials and sophisticated chrome surfaces.
The instrument cluster and area in the driver’s immediate field of vision deliver a distinctively upmarket feel. The cluster’s dials now feature brand new scales in the form of indirectly illuminated light boxes. This novel technology, unique to BMW Motorrad and the rest of the industry, is more aesthetically pleasing and improves visibility on both daytime and night-time rides. The chrome edging surrounding the four speakers lends a sophisticated styling touch to the rider’s exclusive workstation.

The chromed finish on other elements, such as the headlight interior, the entire exhaust system with its remodelled plating around the catalytic converter, the mirrors, the brake fluid reservoir and the engine protection bar, adds to the new K 1600 GTL Exclusive’s refined styling.
Enlarged seat area, armrests and new heated backrest to offer pillion passengers the best possible comfort.

Passengers are seated more comfortably than ever on the new BMW K 1600 GTL Exclusive. The pillion seat has been widened and lengthened at the rear. The standard armrests are complemented by a backrest that has been extended up to the lower topcase area and features a heated upper section. All of these features offer riding companions maximum comfort over long distances and add up to undiluted touring pleasure.

Keyless Ride and central locking to maximize ease of use and security.
For the first time on a BMW motorcycle, the conventional ignition/steering lock has been replaced by the Keyless Ride system, eliminating the need to use a key in the normal fashion. Instead, the steering lock, ignition, fuel filler flap and central locking are all controlled by a transponder integrated into the key, allowing riders to keep their key where it belongs – in their pocket.
When the key is within the vehicle’s reception range ( < 6.5 ft.) and has been successfully authenticated, the steering lock can be released with a brief press of the pushbutton control. The steering is locked again by holding the pushbutton down and turning the handlebars to the full lock position.
The ignition is activated by briefly pressing the pushbutton control or by holding it down after releasing the steering lock. The ignition is switched off by a brief or prolonged press of the pushbutton.

The pushbutton control also unlocks the fuel filler flap electrically. To open, just lift up the fuel filler flap. Once refuelling is complete, the fuel filler flap can simply be pressed back into place.

The anti-theft alarm system is activated automatically with the ignition switched off and the steering locked as soon as the key moves out of range. It is also possible to activate the anti-theft alarm system manually.
The new BMW K 1600 GTL Exclusive’s central locking system also controls cases and storage compartments. Unlocking is triggered automatically when the ignition is activated or by manually using the key’s remote control or the pushbutton on the handlebar. Locking is activated manually in similar fashion with the remote control or the pushbutton.

In addition to the Keyless Ride transponder and the control buttons for the central locking and the anti-theft alarm system, the smartly designed key includes a fold-out key bit, which allows all locks on the bike to be operated manually in the conventional way, if necessary.

Hill Start Control for comfortably pulling away uphill with ease.
The K 1600 GTL Exclusive is BMW Motorrad’s first model with an in-line engine to feature the new Hill Start Control function, which allows riders to effortlessly remain stopped on uphill slopes with the engine running without having to keep the brake lever pressed. This “BMW first” makes it far easier to perform hill starts and is a particularly valuable aid on a fully laden tourer.
Thanks to the partially integral ABS braking system, the rear brake can be operated individually for this purpose. It allows pressure to build up in the rear wheel’s hydraulic brake unit when the Hill Start Control is activated and hold the motorcycle steady on an incline.

The Hill Start Control is purely a convenience feature that is designed to facilitate stopping and starting on a hill and is separate from a parking brake. It is activated by squeezing the hand-operated brake lever tightly, triggering a stop symbol in the display. The system is deactivated by either pressing the brake lever again or pulling away in first or second gear.
Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) to maximize safety when accelerating.

The K 1600 GTL Exclusive is equipped as standard with Dynamic Traction Control (DTC). This is a key factor contributing to the bike’s superlative handling and safety. The DTC traction control proves to be a particularly valuable rider aid during fluctuating operating conditions, road conditions with poor grip or sudden changes in road surfaces.

Integral film antenna for optimum radio reception and exclusive styling.
The new K 1600 GTL Exclusive’s radio film antenna is another world-first for BMW Motorrad. Never before has a motorcycle’s conventional rod antenna been successfully replaced with a film antenna without sacrificing reception quality.

The new film antenna has been installed discreetly between the inner lining of the topcase lid and the painted outer shell, where it ensures reception quality that is on a par with a rod antenna. This also enhances the visual appearance of the K 1600 GTL Exclusive, as the film antenna blends with the overall styling and gives the machine a distinctly uniform, contemporary look.
Adaptive xenon headlight, LED auxiliary headlights and floor lighting.
As one of the most advanced motorcycles of its time, the new K 1600 GTL Exclusive goes to great lengths to ensure that riders can both see and be seen as clearly as possible.

The new K 1600 GTL Exclusive is equipped with an adaptive xenon headlight. In addition to the pitch leveling that takes place during braking and acceleration, the low beam adjusts to compensate for the lean angle of the motorcycle. Together, the two compensatory movements direct the beam of light into the bend, following the road ahead. This results in vastly improved road illumination and active riding safety.

For greater visibility when riding in adverse weather conditions, the K 1600 GTL Exclusive is fitted with LED auxiliary headlights at the sides below the fairing. Topping the list of lighting features is an additional brake light integrated into the topcase, as well as floor lighting that stays on for a period when the remote control central locking is activated and after dismounting.

ESA II electronic suspension adjustment for optimum adaptation to all operating requirements and vehicle loads.
The new K 1600 GTL Exclusive comes standard with the benefits of the highly sophisticated Electronic Suspension Adjustment II (ESA II) system.
This system allows the rider to adjust not only the rebound damping for the front and rear spring struts and the spring preload of the rear spring strut, but also the strut’s spring rate and therefore the “firmness” of the springs – at the press of a button. The result is outstanding stability and impressive response regardless of the load.

Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM) with gradient monitoring.
The Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM) employs a remarkably lightweight and compact receiver control unit and special wheel sensors to keep a close eye on the tire pressure. In addition to the tire pressure warning threshold, the system is also capable of gradient monitoring. This means, for example, that a sudden loss of pressure will also trigger a warning before the critical threshold is reached, further enhancing safety.

Colors.
Exclusive composition of colors and surfaces.
The new K 1600 GTL Exclusive exudes a stylish, elegant and exclusive personality thanks to its numerous chrome details and artfully inspired color palette.

The Mineral white metallic high gloss paint finish that is applied to the bodywork in four coats lends this motorcycle a tremendous sense of class and distinction. The harmonious blend of the main body color with the subtle contrasting shade of Magnesium metallic matt creates an appearance that is brimming with both poise and elegance.

Together with the Glacier silver metallic radiator shroud and the Magnesium silver upholstery on the seat cushions, backrest and pillion passenger armrests, the K 1600 GTL Exclusive will certainly turn heads.
