p90048484

BMW have launched their new design and award winning BMW Cruise Bike and say it’s ideally suited for both long tours and shorter rides.

Comfortable and convenient
The BMW Cruise Bike is the optimum choice for day trips – no matter whether you want to make a countryside tour over the weekend or spend a holiday cycling along the coast. In contrast to other bikes, its stem can be individually adjusted to suit the stature of any rider. For instance, riders can now cruise comfortably on long-distance tours. The back pains resulting from the rider’s bent position when riding some bikes are now a thing of the past.
The BMW Touring Bike is ideal for all cyclists who mainly ride in urban traffic situations. It has the same frame as the Cruise Bike, but additionally features a rear luggage rack as well as street fittings.

Stable and safe
The sporty spirit of the BMW Cruise Bike is revealed not only in its special stem and its looks. Its frame is manufactured on the basis of innovative hydroforming technology, a process in which the aluminium tubes are filled with oil and shaped by extreme pressure. This results in a light and, above all, rigid frame. In combination with its resilient telescopic forks and Shimano Alivio gears, this means that even deep potholes, extreme gradients and racy sprints present no problems at all to its rider.

Purist prize material
The exciting looks of the bike finished in red and pearl white are an absolute winner too. BMW, with its 60-year heritage of bicycle manufacturing, has already won numerous design awards. In addition to winning the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany and the if Product Design Award, the BMW Cruise Bike has now won the Red Dot Award for the second time.
