New BMW bikes

Discussion in 'Motorcycle Buy & Sell - S.E. Asia' started by Franz, Nov 28, 2007.

  1. I wonder when BMW Thailand gets news about these new bikes and publishes it........
    F650GS new:
    f650gs08.
    F800GS new:
    f800gs08.
    G450 new:
    g450x08.
    R1200GS new:
    r1200gs08.
    R1200GSA new:
    r1200gsa08.
    Cheers, Franz
     
  2. Just had a conversation with Weerawat from Barcelona BKK, they're gonna present the new bikes at Bangkok Motorshow in April, hope they're available right then too, let's see what prices we get......cheers, Franz
     
  3. Went to the bangkok Motorshow yesterday, what a let down.

    Went last year to the same show, heaps of bike there, even had Nicky Hayden's Motogp bike.

    This year, zero bikes, not even any on BMW car stand. There was one Harley V Rod on the Ford stand as Ford are doing a HD theme on one of their pick ups, and both pick up and bike painted in same coulour scheme.

    And local bike sporting club had a few small race bikes, even a couple of Vespa'a and a Lambretta LI150 in race trim.

    Looking forward to the show in April, as Rhodie mentioned YSS shocks will be having a stand there as well
     
  4. I asked Barcelona Phuket about the Dakar model and got this answer:
    Dear Mr.Xxxxxxx,

    Refer your question about *Dakar* BMW Thailand actually don't have in
    order now otherwise we would like to present the new model as you can
    come at our showroom.

    Also please contact Mr.Chairith Bike sale supervisor on mobile phone
    number 086-9419188 for any question.

    Best regards,

  5. According to Khun Kamolchart at BMW, the new F800 GS will be available in Nov/Dec 2008 and will be approx 800.000,-

  6. Yesterday got an invitation letter from BMW-Motorcycles Thailand for the Bangkok Motorshow. As expected, no mention of any of the new bikes above.........Just some offers for new and showroom/testing bikes we all know since years with the note to look up further details in their website, well opened their website, I think they have not updated anything for more than one year...........no mention of used or testing bikes available.
    Good that the competition is coming in, sales for BMW will drop significantly.......just found another Ex-BMW staff at Yamaha in Bangkok, with all the good ones running away, only the ones who do not know anything about customer service to be left there........it's a pity but can't be helped.......
