Does anyone know what BMW bike is the white one? Is it the S1000RR?
Looks like they have gotten rid of the shark fin. And the dual headlight which had a circular light.
Or is this a customised BMW?
Hi!

I am aware than when the ignition is switched on, the headlamp comes on. Engine running or not.

It is not because of high speed vehicle, but

Here is the wiki link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daytime_running_lamp

Because Motorcycles are less visible, it is mandatory for them to have the low beam in on position as soon as the ignition is switched on. Reason why battery tenders are sold a lot.

My question was, if the ignition was switched on & bike not fired, it would drain out battery & if the bike was fired, it would be running very hot & the fan would come on. Not good for the engine.

And that BMW bike is the F800GT from their touring range of bikes.

Mini coopers nowadays are so obese. I still love the tiny ones of earlier period which were overpowered for their size

@strangewizard Nice pics!

Had visited the show on 19th. It was really an awesome experience!. Just couldn't take my eyes off those Lamborghinis, Jaguars and Ferrari. Enjoyed to the core.

Also I was lucky to get a chance to meet Mr. Hormazd Sorabjee-Editor of Autocar India. Had a small chat and clicked a picture with him!

Most probably I will be visiting on sunday, 14th December.

I have been to the 2007 edition of the performance show and going by the pictures and reviews every year, yes it has been disappointing.

Since I am free this sunday and I am visiting Mumbai to catch up with a few friends, I can definitely spare a couple of hours for the performance show. Hoping for good reviews of the show starting tomorrow !!
