THERE’S nothing quite like hopping on a motorcycle, sliding on your gloves, popping your helmet on, and firing up the engine.

The sweet tune of the finely-tuned exhaust pipe rumbling inside your helmet is like a solo act hitting all the right notes. Then, as you twist the throttle, you can hear each cylinder in the engine pushing those pistons, creating an explosion that sends shivers down your spine.

If you are one of those people who understands the thrill of a motorcycle, then you need to get down to Sovereign BMW Kimberley on Saturday, February 17.

Sovereign BMW Kimberley is set to unveil the much-anticipated BMW R 1300 GS motorcycle tomorrow at their showroom located in Long Street, starting at 9 am.

With a lineage tracing back 43 years to the iconic R 80 G/S, which revolutionised adventure biking with its Gelände/Straße (“off-road/road”) concept, the R1300 GS marks a groundbreaking leap forward in design and performance.

This latest iteration, the R 1300 GS, represents a complete overhaul, with only select components like the butterfly valves and a few bolts and connectors carrying over from its predecessor, the R 1250 GS.

The development journey for the R 1300 GS commenced six years ago, a testament to BMW’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of adventure biking.

Imtiaz Ameer, the dealer principal for BMW Kimberley, has extended a warm invitation to both current and prospective BMW enthusiasts to witness the unveiling of this remarkable motorcycle first-hand.
