Held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, 655 West 34th Street, the show opens to the public at 2 p.m. on Friday, December 9 and continues through 5 p.m. Sunday, December 11.
BMW will host a 30-minute press conference for journalists on Friday, December 9 at 9:55 a.m. Speakers include Roy Oliemuller, BMW Motorrad USA Communications Manager, and Brian Carey, BMW Motorrad USA Product Manager.
Were delighted to roll into Manhattan with our new and updated models, commented Sarah Schilke, National Motorcycle Manager, BMW Motorrad USA. With a bike for virtually every riding preference and every budget, there could be a BMW on every riders holiday wish list.
Among the all-new BMW models on display in New York will be the new G 310 R, BMWs first roadster under 500 cc and the only BMW under $5,000 (including destination and handling fees). BMWs second product offering in this segment was announced last month and will be on display in New York, as well the versatile and dynamic BMW G 310 GS.
Also making their Manhattan debut will be several new variants of BMWs popular, retro-classic R nineT: the much-anticipated BMW R nineT Scrambler; R nineT Pure, which is ideal for customization; the caf racer-styled R nineT Racer; and the R nineT Urban G/S, inspired by the legendary BMW R 80 G/S enduro.
