BMW GS has signified universal motorcycling pleasure for more than 35 years: ‘GS’ embodies the ideal combination of touring and long distance suitability, dynamic performance and off-road capability. This applies especially to the BMW GS motorcycles with the boxer engine. They are the perfect companions in extreme conditions when it comes to exploring the most remote corners of the earth.
The unique concept of the R 1200 GS, with its down-to-earth character and powerful high-torque engine, thrills a large number of motorcycle fans all over the world. For this reason, it has dominated its market segment for many years and is the top-seller within the BMW Motorrad model range globally and in Australia.
With the new R 1200 GS, BMW Motorrad expands the GS portfolio with additional product enhancements and the extension of the motorcycle’s properties. For the first time, customers can opt for an enduro or distinguished style to suit its intended purpose with the style packages ‘Dynamic’ and ‘Touring’. The Dynamic and Touring packages are optional on the base R 1200 GS and Rallye models.
The most popular adventure bike in the world, the R 1200 GS has been further advanced. Designed for even greater versatility, it taps into a previously-unknown breadth of properties, ranging from dynamic performance to comfort and off-road suitability. This is due to selective improvements, new features and an expanded program of optional equipment and accessories.
