BMW Mountainbike All Mountain 2013

The BMW Mountainbike All Mountain has a perfectly tuned chassis and a full-suspension, hydro-formed and powder-coated aluminium frame. Its special design is the result of a production process that is otherwise only used in car manufacturing.With 30 gears and a lock-out fork, the Shimano XT derailleur makes steep uphill cycling easy. The four-pivot rear with anti-bobbing technology ensures optimal power transmission, and on the downhill journey riders can rely on the hydraulic disc brakes for extra safety.

BMW Cruise Bike Junior

The 20-inch tall BMW Cruise Bike Junior is the little brother of the BMW Cruise Bike. Like its older sibling, it has been distinguished with the red dot design award for its attention-grabbing design. The sturdy aluminium frame is built to work in perfect harmony with the dimensions of a child, and its integrated components allow girls and boys to control their bikes with ease. An emergency stop is no problem with the two independently adjustable brake levers and smoothly-operating rim brakes, and a comfortable ride is guaranteed even when cycling along bumpy gravel paths thanks to the suspended front wheel fork, which is specially adapted to the weight of a child.

The new BMW 4 Series Coupe

The new BMW 4 Series Coupe

Launched as the fourth generation of BMW’s sporty mid-size Coupe, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe is visibly larger in width and wheelbase than the outgoing BMW 3 Series Coupe, and its dynamically stretched coupe silhouette sits considerably lower to the road. This, together with its BMW-typical short overhangs, long bonnet and set-back passenger compartment with flowing roofline, lends the BMW 4 Series Coupe impeccable visual balance. The car’s striking front end – with its characteristic BMW design features, such as the double-kidney grille, twin circular headlights and a large air intake in the front apron – is keen to display its family ties with the BMW 3 Series. A new element of the BMW 4 Series Coupe are the Air Breathers, positioned rearwards of the front wheel arches to reduce drag in this area.
