The international gathering of all things BMW – BMW Motorrad Days, set in the stunning Alpine scenery of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, was the venue for revealing some impressive new technology that’s coming our way. Most eye-catching was the latest R 1200 GS Adventure which was sporting a rather attractive TFT colour display.
Available on the latest 2018 MY R 1200 GS and Adventure from September production, the display integrates your smartphone (via an App) and your BMW Communications System in your helmet with your motorcycle. All this is accessed safely and conveniently by the now familiar controller wheel on the left-hand handlebar.
You can also have navigation displayed utilising lane, distance and turning direction arrow information again via your smartphone App.
Add this to the ability to control your music, phone calls and display vehicle information via a crystal-clear colour display, you have a incredibly powerful and intuitive tool to enhance your riding even further.
Price of the TFT Connectivity Display is £595.
