BMW Motorrad brake systems are as well-known for their excellent performance as they are for meeting the toughest safety standards. With the introduction of the brake pad wear indicator, BMW Motorrad demonstrates once more that its top priority is to develop features which make motorcycling safer and more pleasant.
The new system permanently monitors the state of the brake pads. When a certain minimum level is reached, the display informs the rider that the wear limit will soon be reached.
This system is used in the BMW K 1200 GT for the first time in motorcycle construction.
