A Year to Remember for BMW Motorrad

BMW Headlights

BMW has a serious eye on the market in 2012.

The folks at BMW Motorrad must have been thrilled when they crunched the numbers for 2011. The company reports its best sales year since its inception. Here are some of the company stats for 2011:

  • 104,286 units sold (6.4% increase from 2010)
  • 2011 total sales exceed the company’s previous best: 102,467 units in 2007
  • 12% increase in the market share in the 500cc and over segment

We do not have details on the model unit sales but in 2010, BMW credited the S1000RR for driving their sales increase. BMW also expected the high demand for the S1000RR and their new K series bikes to continue fueling their sales growth.

A big “thumbs up” for BMW team. Keep it up!

Today was the first day of school and we’re sure for every sad kid, there was a happy parent. It isn’t just kids going back to school though, many adults are back in the mix as well. In an effort to “keep it real” with our fans, we thought it would be a great idea to write about the hands-on Technology Training Program for Motorcycle Mechanics at the Universal Technical Institute. In a short period of time you can be working in the field and possibly doing what you love. Check out some of the program features:

MMI’s Core Program

  • Integrated technologies and procedures used by dealerships across the country.
  • Engine operation, troubleshooting and diagnostics.
  • How to max power and performance.
  • Fuel and electrical systems.
One you complete the core program you can select any of the following specialties as an elective:
Here is a link to the MMI Fact Sheet which answers many of the questions you may have. It takes about 48 weeks to complete the course and classes start every 6 weeks. If you love bikes and are looking for a career change, this may be a great option for you.

If tricks are your thing, there’s probably no better thrill than driving the Ducati Hypermotard 1100. Weighing in at 377 pounds, wheelies are unavoidable. The EVO SP comes equipped with premium Pirelli Diablo SuperCorsa SP tires that glue you to the road. This bike is definitely an excellent combination of dirt biking and street ridding with its 95 horsepower and 80 ft/lbs of torque.
