The Helmet Race is a new addition to the BMW Motorrad Rider´s Equipment Collection. Derived from racing, the shell of the Helmet Race is made of GRP with carbon fibre reinforcements. The visor with tearoffs is indispensable in racing. The Helmet Race is provided with four of these. The 2D-curved visor presents an extra large field of vision, and the inner panel closes snugly with the edge of the visor gasket. This design gives the rider the best possible view also when he has adopted the racing posture. At the same time, the enlarged neck opening prevents the helmet from being pushed into the forehead. Moisture wicking DuPont Coolmax was used for the interior, which can be detached completely for washing.
BMW presented the new F 800 GT as the successor to the F 800 ST. The most striking change as compared to the predecessor model F 800 ST is the bike’s full fairing. Not only does it give the new BMW F 800 GT a more dynamic, adult look, it makes it more of a fully fledged touring bike. A key factor here is the new windshield with optimised aerodynamics and significantly increased wind and weather protection. There are also new, longer mirror stems for a better view of traffic to the rear.
