The all new 2014 BMW R1200 GS Adventure


“We are pleased to unveil the latest model in the BMW Motorrad range to incorporate the new water-cooled 1200cc boxer engine – the all-new R 1200 GS Adventure. If you seek to travel on epic explorations or long distance tours, on rough roads, over stony tracks out in the wilderness, on tarmac, off-road, through deserts 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 against the world and explore new territory. Or to put it briefly: A motorcycle for riders who are seeking real adventure and want to experience sheer riding pleasure in the process.

Conquer any type of terrain on an enduro which meets all of 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. Additional ‘Dynamic’, ‘Enduro’ and ‘Enduro Pro’ riding modes are also available as an additional option.

30 litres in the fuel tank combined with the engine’s optimised fuel efficiency really make you “unstoppable” on and off the road; making unwanted fuel stops a thing of the past. In addition the standard level of equipment now includes 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 potent 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 three colour versions: Olive matt, Racing Blue metallic matt and Alpine White.”
