Har­ald Krüger, Chair­man of the Board of Man­age­ment of BMW, used his 2017 in­terim re­port to an­nounce that there will be 14 new mod­els in the next year and that cus­tomers will be able to choose be­tween a “wide range of dif­fer­ent drive trains”. Now, be­fore you get very ex­cited, many of these will be small up­dates for Euro4, or ex­ist­ing bikes that we al­ready know about which have not yet made it to show­rooms – like the K1600 Bag­ger, which is now classed as a 2018 model.

But we do know there’s a new ver­sion of the F800GS com­ing, likely to be an F850GS, and we’d ex­pect the rest of the 800cc range to be up­dated along­side it. A new R1200GS Ad­ven­ture is also ex­pected for 2018, and the R1200RS is due an in­terim up­date. While su­per­bike fans may be wait­ing for an all-new S1000RR, we don’t ex­pect it to ar­rive in 2018, and BMW have con­firmed the R ninet-based Her­itage se­ries won’t have any new mod­els for two years. A new 400cc scooter is also ru­moured.
