9.4% APR?

Takes a while to dig down and find it but it's there in their adverts if you take the time to look. No wonder it's hidden though. 9.4% APR? BMW you are taking the piss.

You can get them for £5 a month

If you pay 95% up front. In other news, the Daily Mail says that you get ringpiece cancer from posting deceptive marketing pish verbatim.

Bargepole

Wouldn't touch a BMW with a very long bargepole.

Rebadged Taiwanese tat.

Their new scooters are having stalling problems, there's been a recall on them already.

Do you have any senseful critics or do you just spam?

Taiwanese? Well, BMWs are no produced in in asia (only the GS 650 engine, cinese company Loncin), in contratiction to Triumph. They got 2 factories in Hinckley, 3 in Chonburi, thailand.

Sorry, no offence ment, but, sorry mate, you wrote nonsense.

The BMW C600 and C650 engines are made by Kymco in Taiwan.

@Piglet2010

Hi Piglet,

yes, this is right. But in many (or even most?) cases, engines are constructed by the motocycle company, but produced and delivered by a partner. BMW has an own foundry for the bigger engines, e.g. the GS, but only because there is a big car industry behind it. Most other motorcycle companies get their engines from partners. Even Yamaha receives there engines from partners, at least for some models.

My point was, that you cannot just call a complete product palette as "rebadged taiwanese tat", because engines for some models are delivered by Kymco.

Bye, Zinfandel92

The difference

The difference between BMW and Triumph is that Triumph are open about where they manufacture their products.

BMW are not.

You will find no reference to Taiwan on BMW's website.

Instead BMW choose to state that BMWs are "assembled" in Germany.

Note the subtle use of words.

They are not open about where the components are manufactured.

By and large, its not Germany.

Many BMW models are plagued with all manner of problems.

Like I said, I wouldn't touch one with a bargepole.
