BMW Motorrad Makes New York a R nineT City

German motorcycle manufacturer BMW Motorrad has enjoyed a full year of new models, many of which will ride into the Progressive International Motorcycle Show (IMS) in New York this weekend.

Among the all-new BMW models on display in New York will be the new G 310 R, BMW’s first roadster under 500 cc and the only BMW under $5,000. And yes, this price does include those extras such as the destination and handling fees. BMW’s second product offering in this segment was announced last month and will be on display in New York as well, the versatile and dynamic BMW G 310 GS.

“We’re delighted to roll into Manhattan with our new and updated models,” commented Sarah Schilke, National Motorcycle Manager, BMW Motorrad USA. “With a bike for virtually every riding preference and every budget, there could be a BMW on every rider’s holiday wish list.”
