New BMW R1200 GS Set For Irish Show


Visitors to the Carole Nash Irish Motorbike & Scooter Show next weekend will have the opportunity to see the all-new BMW R1200 GS. With 33 years of experience creating and improving on adventure bikes, from the R 80 G/S in 1980, to the 2013 R 1200 GS, the new bike takes a step beyond all their rivals with the introduction of the superb Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) system. The DDC is self-adjusting, semi-active suspension damping – also seen on the firm’s revolutionary HP4 supersports bike. The DCC system controls electromagnetic valves that can open or close in just 10 milliseconds to always deliver the optimum response over any type of road conditions providing maximum traction and safety for the rider.

Commenting on the announcement Howard Godolphin, BMW Motorrad, Ireland and Motorcycle Area Manager stated, “We have a lot of new bikes coming to the show this year and no doubt the R 1200 GS will be a highlight for visitors. Over the years when we launch or unveil new bikes it is always so important to have as many people see them as possible and the Carole Nash Irish Motorbike and Scooter Show provides us the platform to showcase our revolutionary new developments to the widest audience of interested people at one time. The evolution of the motorbike continues at a fast pace and we at BMW will strive to stay at the forefront of this for as long as we can through research and development but also by receiving valuable feedback from our customers. The show allows us to keep that process going like no other event in Ireland.”

The Carole Nash Irish Motorbike & Scooter Show is on in the RDS, Dublin from March 1st to 3rd.
