The BMW R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure are motorcycles manufactured in Berlin, Germany by BMW Motorrad, part of the BMW group. It is one of the BMW GS family of dual sport motorcycles. Both motorcycles have a 1,170 cc (71 cu in), two-cylinder boxer engine with 4-valves per cylinder. The Adventure has a larger capacity fuel tank and longer travel suspension. As of 2012, BMW's R1200GS bikes are their top-selling models.
The BMW R 1200 GS. More GS is impossible. It founded the dual-sport motorcycle segment – and is still leading it confidently today. The diversity – roads, cross-country, urban, countryside, comfort, performance – combined with the legendary robustness and the expertise from over 36 years of GS development result in a motorcycle which shies away from no competitors. A great many test triumphs and awards in technical magazines provide impressive proof of this. The R 1200 GS has always been inspiring. The new model goes one better: both in terms of its touring suitability and off-road performance. Which means for you: increased comfort, dynamics and more fun. In short: yet more adventure.
With two different basic colours and the two new styles – Exclusive and Rallye – you can now adapt the R 1200 GS even more to suit your individual preferences. The styles comprise a colour design with specially attuned standard equipment.
Wherever the journey takes you, the R 1200 GS is bound to draw all the looks. From the front to the back – the striking GS line style signalises its unquenchable thirst for adventure. High-quality design elements and attractive colours and styles make the new GS irreplaceable. The main frame colour can be selected in three different finishes. Details like the galvanised radiator cowl allude to the increased visual robustness. Even stainless steel is used in the styles. Furthermore, the Exclusive and Rallye styles have their own, style-forming accents: from the tank trim right up to the GS lettering. The R 1200 GS has never been more individual – just like you.
Tried, tested and proven under the highest load again and again: the twin-cylinder boxer engine with 92 kW (125 HP). It is efficient and has very high torque: for noticeable riding enjoyment in any situation. And yet the boxer is not only legendary for its reliability. It is also extremely good-natured. The wet clutch with anti-hopping function and the electric throttle facilitate a fine dosage of power.
