CV Show 2012: Two-wheel wonder for urban rescue

  • 23 April 2012
  • By admin

This year’s CV Show, currently happening at the Birmingham NEC, includes an unusual exhibitor in the BMW Motorrad, a motorcycle aimed at operators running sizeable fleets in urban locations.

Its arrival is based on the fact that a significant number of CV breakdowns are due to faults which can often be fixed with either a laptop computer or basic hand tools.

Getting £60,000 of fully-equipped service van to a breakdown is often a waste of resources and, especially in inner-cities, can take significantly longer than a two-wheeler.

BMW’s truck repair demonstrator is based on the R1200RT-P, the model that takes around two-thirds of the UK emergency bike market. It’s built on the normal production line with specialist kit such as a special low-ratio final drive and a twin-battery split-charging electrical system included from the start.
