At times when there are high volumes of traffic and traffic jams, first responders on a motorcycle are often faster to respond than when in a car or ambulance.

With the BMW R 1200 RT-P, BMW Motorrad has developed the solution for first responders: whilst the BMW R 1200 RT-P has a radio transceiver and boxes with space for emergency medical equipment such as a first-aid kit and defibrillator, the motorcycle can still ride with agility through crowded streets. Thanks to the fluorescent colours chosen, the motorcycles can also be identified quickly as rescue vehicles.

In some federal states, the prescribed maximum response time for emergency services is just eight minutes. Using motorcycles can increase the guarantee of meeting this target.

Roland Velten, regional manager of sales to authorities and special customers at BMW Motorrad, explains: “When every second counts, this motorcycle can make all the difference.”
