Exciting New BMWs Put To The Test

F 750 GS Test Ride

City Coast Motorcycles was one of twelve Australian dealerships to attend the International BMW Motorrad Conference in Sardinia, Italy. Dealer Principal Timothy Sim had the opportunity to experience first-hand an impressive line-up of new models.

Sardinia offered a quality mix of scenic on-road and off-road riding, which Tim says would be hard to beat:

“We were so lucky to explore the fun, windy roads along the coast and then head into the mountains via some amazing off-road, rocky trails.”

Tim tested three new releases from BMW Motorrad which will arrive later this year at City Coast Motorcycles; the F 850 GS, the F 750 GS and the C 400 X. Here are his thoughts:

F 850 GS

Check out Tim’s GoPro footage of the all new BMW  F 850 GS  here:

“The motor has character and is very exciting. When the engine hits its sweet spot at about 6,000 revs it just comes alive. The F 850 GS feels comfortable instantly, like a proper dirt bike. You can do everything; you can ride it smoothly and even aggressively off-road, like a motocross bike. Compared to the previous model, the way the weight has been changed with the fuel tank moved further forward completely improves the handling into a precise and well-balanced machine. The added features of the TFT screen, quick-shift and cruise-control just make it the ultimate adventurer.”

NEW F 750 GS
“The F 750 GS is perfect for on and off-road riding. Again, its improved engine is what impressed me, whilst the handling is also brilliant. Whether you’re an experience dual-sport rider or starting out, this bike will give you a lot of confidence and fun. Now it has the same features as the R 1200 GS, like the TFT screen, quick-shift and cruise-control giving it the perfect balance.”

C 400 X

BMW C 400 X

“Wow! This is a really fun machine. We rode through small Italian villages, then curvy mountain roads. The C 400 X has a surprising amount of power and very precise handling. What an awesome commuter, with amazing under-seat storage for your helmet. The Comfort Package adds the TFT dash, along with heated grips and heated seat. Any motorcyclist would enjoy owning one of these because you cannot help but have a smile on your face.”

Moto Touring Transylvania

Geoff Rides in Romania

Moto touring is a growing industry and City Coast Motorcycles founder Geoff Sim is a keen two-wheeled tourist.  He’s adventured through the wilds of South Africa, traversed Russian roads and tackled the sand dunes of The Simpson Desert.  But he counts his recent tour of Romania as one of the most memorable.

The ‘Discover Romania’ package is a nine day (seven days riding) experience taking you deep into the heart of Transylvania. Yes, it has THE Dracula castle. The tour boasts fairy tale landscapes, middle-age monasteries and culture to-boot. The route also takes in the Transfagarasan Road, described by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May of TV’s Top Gear as “the most amazing road we have ever seen!”

“There were many mountain passes with magnificent tar roads, spectacular scenery and magic motorcycle corners, over long distances,” said Geoff.

The itinerary was a complete loop encompassing the Carpathian Mountain chain, with Bucharest as the departure point. All motorcycles were supplied.

“The bikes were BMWs including the F 700 GS, the F800 GS and R 1200 GS. They were all well maintained,” Geoff said.

The standard of lodgings impressed Geoff, such as a beautiful old mansion and grounds “done up” as a resort:

“Accommodation was very good and Romania is a very cheap country to travel in,” he said.
