BMW to Show Five “New” Models at EICMA

The EICMA season is clearly upon us, with the first fruits of the Milan show to debut on Monday, an actual day ahead of the expo’s doors opening. Dozens of motorcycle will debut in Italy, from all of the major brands.

BMW Motorrad will of course be at EICMA, and the German brand has telegraphed that five new models will debut at the show, including one world premiere.

The big news for BMW is that a new R-series model will be unveiled, which will almost certainly be the BMW R nineT Scrambler.

In addition to the Scrambler, we can expect to see at the EICMA show the BMW G310R, BMW C650 Sport, and BMW C650GT. BMW also tells us that they have something for the BMW F-series, and we expect to see the BMW eRR electric superbike project as well (that’s six bikes, technically).

While the wording of BMW’s press release isn’t as precise as we would expect from a German manufacturer, the lineup is a bit disappointing from the BMW Motorrad, considering that many of these models have already been teased out.

Rumors of a BMW 600cc supersport don’t seem to be coming true, and we very much expected the BMW Concept 101 to find itself in a production version of the bagger concept.

The problem of spoiling our Christmas, perhaps. Still, we’ll reserve judgment to see what actually ends up at the exhibit hall in Milan.
