BMW R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure to get Connectivity option with a TFT display

BMW Motorrad is set to introduce a 6.5 inch TFT display instrument cluster that connects with smartphones and BMW’s helmet communication system via Bluetooth. The TFT not only displays basic data such as rpm and speed, but also a range of other features. 

Media playback and phone functions can also be accessed using the TFT display or with a helmet equipped with BMW’s helmet communication system. The rider can listen to music while on the go. Apart from that, he can also access his smartphone contacts on the TFT display. All of these functions can be used without an extra app.

If you want extra information, BMW also offers an app, called the BMW Motorrad Connected. The app records riding routes or displays ride statistics and information. It can be connected to the TFT and it displays navigation like precise turn indications including lane guiding and your last destination point. The display is useful in more ways than one; it uses an integrated on-board computer that displays ride-relevant information. It displays information like the tyre pressure setting for both tyres. Not only are the actual tyre pressure settings displayed but also the recommended tyre pressures in the respective situation.

BMW plans to launch the Connectivity option on the R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure by September, with other models in tow. India will get this option when BMW Motorrad India launches the updated versions of the bikes here. Both the R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure are available in India and are priced at Rs 16.13 lakh and Rs 17.75 lakh respectively.
