    The powder-coated black radiator cowls made of stainless steel visually complement the trim panel of the motorcycle and round off the sporty design.

Ergonomics and comfort.
  • High rallye seat with luggage plate

    The one-piece high rallye seat is tailor-made for off-road use and offers tall drivers maximum freedom of movement when off-road. There is even room for the pillion passenger. The sleek, ergonomic and multi-coloured design make the rear end of the machine look particularly sporty.

  • Gearshift lever adjustable black

    The adjustable gearshift lever provides better ease of use when standing. Comes with adjustable toe piece. 

Navigation and communication.
  • BMW Navigator VI

Numerous additional functions make planning and touring an exciting experience. This allows routes to be created according to personal preferences in order to enjoy rides on winding and low-traffic side roads. On unfamiliar terrain, the "round trip" option is particularly helpful, as it will always reliably end back at the starting point. 

    The Bluetooth connection to the BMW Motorrad communication system and the optional Smartphone Link app enable pure multimedia entertainment on the move: navigation announcements, telephone calls and music streaming, as well as the retrieval of weather forecasts or traffic jam information are no problem. Along with the navigation preparation, further functions like "My Motorcycle" are also available, and it can also be controlled using the multi-controller on the handlebar. Anyone who has opted for the pre-installed map data is always up-to-date thanks to the lifelong, free map updates.

    One more thing: with the optional car installation kit, the Navigator VI is also the ideal travel companion in your car. 

Safety.
  • Enduro aluminium engine guard

    The sturdy enduro aluminium engine guard effectively protects the bottom of the engine from stone chipping and damage. The aluminium guard, which was specially designed for off-road use, is 2 mm thick and significantly wider and longer than the standard engine guard. The special shape also reinforces the machine's off-road look. 

  • Engine protection bar

    The robust engine guard made of polished stainless steel reliably protects the area of the cylinder from damage without restricting the freedom from inclination. The stable tube construction can even withstand rough impacts and can prevent major fall damage in the terrain and on asphalt. 

  • LED auxiliary headlights

    The iconic fibre-optic conductor gives the innovative standard LED headlights that unmistakable face. The integrated daytime riding light also ensures better visibility and thus enhanced safety on the road.
