BMW Motorrad – an overview

With stunning good looks, powerful engines, bags of horsepower and a ride like no other, it’s little surprise that the German engineering of BMW is the bike of choice for many UK bikers. BMW Motorrad manufacturer a range of bike types including Adventure, Touring, Roadster, Enduro, Sport and Scooter – they are then divided into various ‘series’ defined by their engine using a preceding letter:

  • C Series – Urban Mobility Vehicles  (to the average biker… a scooter)
  • F Series – Bikes with a Parallel Twin Engine – F 700GS, F 800GS and F 800R
  • G Series – Single Cylinder Engines – G 650GS
  • R Series – Twin Cylinder Engines – R 1200GS, R 1200RS, R 1200RT
  • K Series – Four Cylinder Engines – K 1600 GT or GTL, K 13000 R Dynamic, K 1300S
  • S Series – Inline Four Engines – S 1000RR, S 1000R

Simple. So, what does the GS, GT, R, RT, RS etc stand for I hear you ask? It’s German and is going to take a bit of translating:

  • GS – Geländesport, German for Off Road Sport (Adventure)
  • GT – Grand Tourisme, German for Touring
  • R – originally stood for ‘Rad’ short for ‘Motorrad’ which is German for motorcycle
  • RT – Reisetourer, German for Tourer
  • RS – Rennsport, German for Race Sport

BMW Motorrad bikes are powerful machines, so insurance premiums can be a little hair-raising at times! Here at Devitt, we know that just because you choose to ride a BMW doesn’t mean that you’re a higher risk, which is why we compare insurance policies from some of the UK’s leading insurance providers to find the very best deal for you.

Choosing your BMW Bike insurance policy

We have a range of BMW bike insurance policies to suit every budget and every circumstance. Whether you need fully comprehensive insurance, third party fire and theft or third party only, we’ve got you covered. Our top-up products can also provide extra peace of mind, including Personal Accident cover, Personal Accident cover with leathers and helmet protection, Legal Expenses and Excess Protect (which could even reduce your premium). We also offer four levels of RAC breakdown cover for BMW bikes.

Getting cheap BMW bike insurance

Driving a BMW bike doesn’t mean that you have to pay over the odds to insure it. In fact, there are plenty of things you can do to reduce costs, even if you do a lot of miles – things like going on an advanced riding course with RoSPA, IAM or the ERS (which could reduce your premium substantially if you ride a fast and powerful BMW like an RR or RS). Simply keeping your bike locked away securely overnight in a garage or indoors can reduce the costs further. Plus, the more no claim discount you have, the cheaper your premium will be – all the more incentive to ride safely, right?

How to get a bike insurance quote

To get your quote, you’ll need details of your licence and of your BMW bike, as well as information about your mileage, how you use the bike (whether you ride it to work or if you ride it purely for fun), security, occupation and location.
