BMW Motorrad remains on course for growth. “We will continue to grow sustainably and profitably and want to increase motorcycle sales to 200,000 units worldwide by 2020”, says Peter Schwarzenbauer, Member of the Board at BMW AG, responsible for MINI, BMW Motorrad, Rolls-Royce and Aftersales.

The American market is an important element in achieving this goal. In the next three years BMW Motorrad is looking to double its market share in the North and South American markets. The company wants to gain new customers by introducing new models specifically tailored to the market.

“We want to remain the benchmark in the premium motorcycle segment”, states Peter Schwarzenbauer. The BMW Motorrad dealer network will also be extended in line with the planned expansion worldwide. The number of dealerships in the USA is to increase from 150 dealerships today to 200 by 2020 in accordance with the growth in sales. BMW Motorrad plans to expand its dealer network to 1,500 sites.

Focus on American markets.

Stephan Schaller, President of BMW Motorrad: “After Germany, the USA will remain the second most important market for BMW in the coming years, too. This is where we see great potential. In the US alone we want to double our market share to ten percent in the next three years.”

Schaller continues: “We will lay the foundation for outstanding growth with new products specifically tailored to the needs of the market and by expanding our sales base.”

BMW Motorrad achieves new all-time high in the third quarter of 2016.

With 116.044 deliveries, BMW Motorrad achieved the highest sales figures for a third quarter as of September 2016. As compared to the already strong previous year’s figures, BMW Motorrad increased sales by a further 3 % in the same period.

In September the number of deliveries grew by 10 % to 12.215 units. Based on this solid growth, BMW Motorrad is expecting a new sales record for the entire year – the sixth in succession.

Bagger K 1600 B world premiere – “The Spirit of the Open Road”.

The first model focussing on the US-American market, the Bagger K 1600 B, will premiere in Los Angeles. It translates the idea of “The Spirit of the Open Road” as expressed in the 2015 BMW Motorrad Concept 101 into an emotional series production motorcycle.

The Bagger stands for cruising on endless highways and for the dream of freedom and independence, the epitome of “American Touring”. It is the perfect symbiosis of supreme 6-cylinder performance, high-level touring qualities and the laid-back attitude and unique driving feel of power and elegance.
