The new Tyco BMW duo of returning MotoGP racer Michael Laverty and championship podium finisher and 2014 race winner Tommy Bridewell are chomping at the bit to get their 2015 MCE British Superbike season underway after unveiling their new bike at the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show yesterday.
Speaking at the event in East London’s ExCel Centre, Northern Irishman Laverty said: “It’s great to finally see the finished version of the bike in the new colours for 2015 and to show it off here at the London Motorcycle Show is great for both BMW and also the race fans who have turned up. I’m coming back from a couple of seasons in MotoGP which makes me even more determined to race at the sharp end all season with Tyco BMW on the all-new S1000RR. I’ve won a championship before with the TAS guys so I’m delighted to be back and that will be our main goal again this year. Now we have launched the bikes the first test can’t come soon enough”
Bridewell added: “There’s been so much talk and it’s been exciting for everyone involved. I’ve ridden a BMW before in BSB so I know how good the package is, but to be racing with one of the leading teams now in TAS Racing and with factory support from BMW Motorrad should make the experience all the more enjoyable this season. The bike looks fast. I can’t wait to get it out on track in Spain in a few weeks’ time with all the Tyco BMW guys and blow the cobwebs off.”
You can see the new Tyco BMW on the BMW Motorrad stand at the MCN Show, which runs until tomorrow Sunday the 15th.
