世界摩托车新闻网报道 丹麦福瑞克斯 Firexpress BMW 宝马消防摩托车

Here’s one very interesting idea – a motorcycle for firefighters! Yes indeed, the FirexpressBMW R1200RT is meant to be an ‘immediate response’ vehicle that can get to the scene first, ahead of firefighting trucks and/or other, bigger vehicles. While bigger trucks may take more time to make their way through traffic and get to wherever help might be needed, a quicker, vastly more manoeuvrable motorcycle should certainly be able to get there much quicker.

The Firexpress system fitted to the BMW can carry up to 25 litres of water/foam and around seven kilos of compressed gas, which is sufficient for more than two minutes of constant spray. The system sprays micro-droplets of water in a controlled, low-speed stream that can reach up to 11 meters.

The Firexpress R1200RT, which can travel at speeds of up to 140km/h, isn’t, of course, a substitute for full-blown firefighting trucks, but as a first response vehicle, we suppose it could be quite handy. Plus, with its emergency lights and sirens, the Firexpress R1200RT looks way cooler than any fire truck we’ve ever seen.
