BMW R 1200 GS Adventure Specs

The R 1200 GS Adventure responds dynamically in any situation thanks to the legendary 92 lb-ft of flat-twin torque and 125 bhp delivered by the new, air/liquid-cooled 2-cylinder 4-stroke engine.

The R 1200 GS is also characterized by its unmistakable design, further improved seating comfort, wind and weather protection and by its muscular presence. It is available in three color versions: Olive Matte, Racing Blue Metallic Matte and Alpine White.

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. 7.9 gallons in the fuel tank combined with the engine’s optimized 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 was improved, e.g. to include an on-board computer. This enables perfect navigation and provides the rider with useful data such as fuel level, average 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.
