By rights, the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure should be impossible. The original bike was a born leader and a legend in the Adventure model range. With the new 'Adventure' version, there are no limits.
Sharp angles and sculpting draw from the rugged motocross look, making the R 1200 GS Adventure feel ready for action at any moment. The curve of the windscreen is both streamlined and protective, keeping your vision clear. The racing-inspired colours available serve to cement that enthusiastic attitude and strong road presence
The engine is a 1,170cc four-stroke flat twin powerhouse. It produces a storming 125Nm of torque and 125bhp, leading to a top speed of over 120mph. A six-speed gearbox is fitted to partner the engine, and the digital engine management system keeps everything under control. Through special air and liquid cooling, the engine's confident and reliable operation is assured over considerable distance.
The R 1200 GS Adventure is made for the long haul. It has a 30-litre fuel tank, one of the largest in the Adventure range. The fully fuelled, unladen weight of 260kg contributes to the bike's lightweight agility. Tailored Rain and Road driving modes, offered as standard, make riding simpler when weather conditions aren't ideal.
There's also the optional Riding mode, with Pro, Dynamic, Enduro and Enduro Pro settings for high performance in a wide variety of situations. On tarmac, sand, stone and mud, the bike proves to be a worthy contender and a true challenger.
As you feel the rush of adrenaline along with the wind, you can stay confident, comfortable and in control. A flat screen brings you ride information, and the speedometer and rev counter are joined by a diagnostic interface to keep an eye on your current fuel level and consumption.
The overall balance of the bike is emphasised by the main centre stand, a standard addition that's only available as a paid option on other models. Twin disc front brakes and single disc rear brakes are joined by BMW's switchable ABS, giving the R 1200 GS Adventure lightning reflexes at the pivotal moment.
Customise and add to your Adventure model until it's just as individual as you are. Augment the purposeful face with daytime running lights and an extra fog light. Heated handlebar grips, cruise control, dynamic Electronic Suspension Adjustment and off-road tyres can also be included to upgrade your riding experience.
