The Bavarian engineers at BMW take accuracy very seriously. At product presentations, technical data is determined to the tenth of an accuracy; after all, they are German. But it is this accuracy that has been appreciated by customers for decades. BMW has found a real gold mine in the GS, the model pupil. It is the all-rounder par excellence - reliable, powerful and capable of long journeys. The Bavarians are also talented in sports. The S 1000 RR superbike was a huge success and led to the birth of the S 1000 R power naked bike, which finally resulted in the S 1000 XR touring enduro/sports tourer. BMW also seems to have learned to surf, because the R nineT is riding the trendy wave of heritage bikes more than successfully.
