BMW's newest innovation...

Post by tfjtolson » Thu Apr 01, 2010 12:31 pm


Having spent the last twenty years perfecting the sport cycle, BMW has
now taken up the ultimate challenge - perfecting the road. Road Warmers
are the result of eight years of highly secret of German engineering.
And represent perhaps the single most important contribution to the
motorcycling industry in the past decade.

Road Warmers employ laser technology to ensure constant road conditions.
The way in which they operate is simple. A pivoting convex laser is mounted
underneath the front telelever and rear paralever suspension. The lasers
are aimed at the pavement directly in front of the tread stance. They
work in tandem with specially designed micro-sized five-speed turbo fans.
So not only do they manage to melt snow and ice, the road is purged of excess
moisture. Thereby virtually eliminating the need to garage your motorcycle
during winter.

Instrumentation has been revamped to include a head's up display of the climatic
conditions through BMW's onboard computer and Active Check Control.
This enables the rider to set the road to a temperature that best suits
their level of performance. The result is a road that never changes.
Four seasons become one. And performance is assured like never before.
Eventually Road Warmers will be standard on all new BMW's.
