BMW Gives Several US-Market Models Intelligent Emergency Call Capability


BMW’s latest mid-season announcement lists a bunch of models returning to the US market for 2024. There are three things to note here: A new intelligent emergency call feature for several machines, a couple of bikes aren’t listed as returning, and of course, we get new paint jobs for several machines.

Intelligent emergency calls

BMW’s auto-dialing emergency call option includes an SOS button (covered, so you don’t accidentally press it) and a loudspeaker and microphone on the right-hand handlebar. When you activate the eCall system (you can do this when you buy the bike), you get a system that can be engaged manually or automatically. If you press the SOS button manually, your bike dials a call center agent, who can advise you or contact emergency services on your behalf after getting some basic details (injuries, number of riders involved, etc.).

However, the system also works if it detects you’ve had a crash, and you don’t press the button. In this case, emergency services may be activated and sent to your location.

Such auto-dialing systems have been available in Europe for some time now, but not in the US. While not all riders may see the benefit, it’s an added safety net that some motorcyclists might want. Obviously, it requires a cell signal to work, so if you’re riding in the Kalahari, don’t expect it to help.

The Intelligent Emergency Call feature is standard on the K1600 series, R18 B and R18 Transcontinental, the S1000 series, the R1250 series and the CE 04. It’s optional on the F900 series.

Non-returning models

The BMW S1000 XR isn’t listed as returning for 2024… but we know the M1000 XR is coming in 2024, so our best bet is that both bikes will receive an overhauled engine, with the machines released this September.

The C400 X scooter is also missing. With the CE 04 coming in, chances are the new electric scoot is muscling out the gas-powered 400. The standard-model R1250 GS is gone, but we know there’s a 1300 coming.
