Q Stan­dard Ral­lye Sport (£14,625), PLUS... Q Pre­mium Pack­age, £1645 The ‘Sport’ spec is al­ready ex­ten­sive, with: Cross Spoke wheels, DTC, LED head­light, DRL, Hill Start Con­trol, Gear Shift As­sist Pro, Dy­namic and En­duro Pro rid­ing modes, Chrome ex­haust, Heated Grips, Tyre Pres­sure Con­trol, hand guards, LED in­di­ca­tors, ABS Pro and pan­nier mounts. The Pre­mium Pack­age adds: Dy­namic ESA, Key­less Ride, On-board Com­puter Pro, GPS prepa­ra­tion, and Cruise Con­trol. Q Vario Pan­niers, £627 The tough, off-road-suit­able, side-load­ing rigid pan­niers are ex­pand­able, mean­ing they’re as un­ob­tru­sive as pos­si­ble with a light load, and se­ri­ously ca­pa­cious when you need them to be, rang­ing from 50l to 68l to­tal ca­pac­ity. Q Vario Top-box, £348 Us­ing the same sys­tem as the pan­niers, the top-box is also ex­pand­able, grow­ing from 25l to 35l by sim­ply flip­ping an in­ter­nal bar. Clev­erly, sim­ply, ef­fec­tive. Q Nav­i­ga­tor V, £550 The Garmin-pow­ered BMW Nav V fully in­ter­acts with the bike’s on-board com­puter, and is con­trol­lable via the left bar­mounted con­trol wheel while on the move. It’ll Blue­tooth to an App on your phone for live up­dates and route plan­ning, and you can view ev­ery­thing from routes to speed to tyre pres­sures through the unit. Q Alarm, £210 Those of us who re­mem­ber the aw­ful af­ter­mar­ket alarm sys­tems of the 90s and early 00s may never want an­other, but this BMW sys­tem should present no such woes – and any ad­di­tional pro­tec­tion is al­ways wel­come.
