BMW R1200GS Rallye

This Saturday our friends at Balderston BMW will be having their annual new model launch event, with a host of great 2017 machines on display including the new R1200GS Rallye, complete with TKC 80 tyres.

Kicking off at 8:30am on 25th February, it’s a great chance to feast your eyes over the latest bike range from Bavaria, be one of the first to book a test ride, and knock back a cup of coffee or two with the team and your fellow BMW fans.

If getting up close to BMW’s latest models wasn’t enough, you’ll also get the chance to check out two of Continental’s show bikes, both based on BMW’s superb S1000RR and customised by the experts at Wunderlich.

On the left we’ve got the ‘Mad Max’ scrambler, again using our instantly recognisable TKC 80 tyres, It was built back in 2012 to celebrate the launch of the TKC 80 in conventional 120/70 ZR17 and 180/55 ZR17 road sizes, and yes, it has had a thrashing in the dirt…

On the right is ‘The Ring’, a Nurburgring inspired superbike which now sports our ContiRaceAttack Comp Endurance rubber following it’s most recent outing to Silverstone, which is the most aggressive road tyre in our range. Pictured is the original ContiSportAttack, our current hypersport tyre from the time of the bike build.
