BMW Motorcycles will offer SIRIUS satellite radio equipment standard on 2011 touring models produced beginning in January, the companies announced.
BMW also will include a one-year subscription to the “SIRIUS Everything” package for all radio-equipped 2011 R 1200 RT, K 1600 GT and K 1600 GTL touring bikes. The package includes more than 135 channels of sports, news talk, entertainment, weather, traffic and commercial-free music.
“BMW Motorcycle owners expect exceptional performance, and our customers seek out the best riding experiences,” BMW Motorcycles Vice President Pieter de Waal said in the release. “Audio entertainment is one of the pleasures of riding a touring motorcycle, and we are very excited to have SIRIUS become standard equipment on our new touring motorcycles, providing the perfect soundtrack for the perfect ride.”
After the one-year subscription expires, users will have to pay standard SIRIUS rates to continue the service.
