The complete range of BMW 2013 motorcycles, including the all-new R 1200 GS and the F 800 GT, will be available for test rides at BMW Motorrad Dealerships from Saturday 02 March.

The New Season Launch is being celebrated with a range of festivities and events at BMW Motorrad Dealerships across the country, including VIP guests, special offers, music and entertainment, complimentary food and drink and much more.

Visitors will be able to see, and experience, the new R 1200 GS, F 800 GT, special-edition K 1300 S 30 Years model and the three stylish 90 Years Anniversary R 1200 GS Adventure, R 1200 RT and R 1200 R models in Dealerships. These new models join the already launched HP4 and HP4 Carbon, F 700 GS and F 800 GS motorcycles.

To celebrate the arrival of six new models to the range, BMW Motorrad UK is giving away three VIP places on the BMW Motorrad Days trip with BMW Tours – and will give the lucky winners a summer to remember with the use of a BMW motorcycle of their choice for three months.

Anyone completing a test ride on a BMW motorcycle by 31 May 2013 will be entered into a draw to win a place on the 03-10 July World of BMW tour to Bavaria, and a motorcycle from June to September. Three winners will be selected at random from the pool of qualifying entrants, and full competition terms and conditions can be found by clicking here.

Lee Nicholls, marketing manager for BMW Motorrad UK, said: "We are very pleased to be adding six more models to the BMW range, including the eagerly anticipated 2013 R 1200 GS. From 02 March onwards, customers will be able to try the ground-breaking new GS out for themselves, along with any other model from the range.

"To celebrate the launch, we are offering three riders the ultimate three-month test ride, including a VIP trip to the incredible BMW Motorrad Days festival in Bavaria.
