Tourism with the "capital T"!

Conceived and been born purposely in order to carry ovunque your dreams to you they wish it and your adventurer heart says you to go.

This disposition of the motor has allowed to lower the barycentre of the motion for a more manageable guide.
The change is to six relationships and the suspensions are entrusted to the sophisticated systems plan to you from BMW: Duolever to front - the new type of Telelever that concurs to reduce the transfers of cargo - and Paralever to the posterior one, to which the regulation electronic of suspensions (ESA can be bound together R-a.richiesta) that it concurs to optimize the calibration of the motivatings force and hydraulics of the shock-absorber pressing a push-button on the handle-bar.
The spectacular thing is the possibility to know when to replace tablets, thanks to the sensors mount to you on the pliers that of it control the too much technological usury...!
The dashboard is worthy of one car of lusso.
It offers numerous indications, between which the mileage partial total and, the hour, the temperature of the cooling liquid, the march grafted, the level of fuel in the tank and the residual autonomy until the level of reservoir of the fuel.
The lighting system of the instrumentation comes controlled automatically from a photoelectric cell, quality that I would want also for the screen of my portable one!




Passing to the emergency, the Knew 1200 GT is equipped of reliable refraining system EVO, mounted also in other models of the Series K and R.
The discs of the brakes are characterize to you from the diameter of 320 millimeters and 294 millimeters behind and are managed from system BMW Integral ABS in the semintegrale sport version.
On this motion she is the pilot who the person taking a walk, will have to redefine the standar to which they were accustoms to you on the motion tourist.
Dark Graphite, Crystal Grey and Deep Blue, are the three previewed colorations.
The price is of 18.200 euro, vat and comprised lateral ags.

If nothing else, this serves to show how pathetic computer translations are (specifically, those done by Systrans, that powers Altavista's and Google's translator).

Interesting nonetheless.
