Stylish and affordable: Introducing the BMW Cruise Bike 2012
BMW Lifestyle has updated its bike collection for 2012. The new collection includes a selection of vibrant colour-ways for the BMW Cruise Bike; stylish silver and white frames are paired with flashes of eye-popping green and attention grabbing orange, making this new collection their boldest and brightest yet!
The alluring appeal of these bikes is achieved through the combination of contemporary aesthetics with technical fine tuning; the stem can even be adjusted to perfectly complement the height of the rider. Cables for the brakes and gear system run inside the aluminium frame which uses hydroforming technology, resulting in a clean and distinctive design.
All of the components which make up this impressive Cruise Bike work simultaneously to allow for the rider to enjoy ultimate cruising pleasure.
These stylish bikes are already making their mark in London as BMW has provided 400 of the white Cruise Bikes, for use in the lead up to and during The 2012 Games. Eleven bikes are currently being used for the Olympic torch relay and the additional 389 will be used within the Olympic park
