Fan of extreme and long tours? On rough roads, over stony tracks out in the wild, too? Tarmac, offroad, stones and sand: These are the challenges the new BMW R 1200 GS Adventure is longing to master with its easy and agile handling. A machine for those who want to test their limits and go beyond them. Or to put it briefly: A motorcycle for riders who are seeking real adventure and don't want to miss out on a great deal of riding pleasure in the process.
Conquer any type of terrain on an enduro which meets all your practical needs. Two standard-fitted ride modes – "Rain" and "Road" – are available at the press of a button and offer two completely different, finely tuned riding experiences. It's like having two motorcycles in one. Further riding modes are also available as an option.
A 30 litre fuel tank combined with the engine's optimised fuel efficiency really make you "unstoppable" on and off the road making unwanted stops a thing of the past. In addition the standard level of equipment has been improved to include an on-board computer. This enables perfect navigation and provides the rider with useful data such as fuel level, speed and fuel consumption.
This travel enduro is rounded off by a newly integrated compartment above the tank which allows you to keep small items within reach at all times.
The R 1200 GS Adventure responds dynamically in any situation thanks to the legendary 125 Nm of flat-twin torque and 125 bhp delivered by the new, water-cooled 2-cylinder 4-stroke engine.
The R 1200 GS is also characterised by its unmistakable design, further improved seating comfort, wind and weather protection and by its muscular presence. It is available in 2 colour versions: Light White or Racing Red Matt
