This bike in Paris
on: January 24, 2022, 09:42:36 PM
this is my dream bike and i have few questions !

In July i'm doing my relocation to Paris from Israel. here in Israel the regular variant of this bike is about 200k Ils which are about 62k$
and the price is just 19k euro in France, which made me able to purchase this bike now

1. i was still unable to understand if the regular model has heated grips or does it fit only in the M version ?
2. is still possible to purchase the M version on another country in europe for a thinner price and drive it to paris?
3. how much is insurance in france and how does the insurance works there, does it cover steal? damage and such?

you should call a few dealers and go test ride a few bikes. Just get the little red insert (plug-in is under the front seat) for "pro" and you'll be all set. Other than that, the heated grips were even on my 2014 model so you should be good.

That plug was in my owners pouch. But be sure it is there. You want to install it after the bike is broken in and you have had the first service. It is good to get this service at your favorite dealer to have them check for updates and missed assembly items. It will also register your bike on the big computer in the sky for any notices from BMW. (though that will happen from your sales point in reality.) Think seriously about the BMW Factory extended warranty.
