Where you're going, there are no zip codes.
The R 1200 GS answers the call of the wild with a 100 blazing horses. The Boxer engine also produces 85 lb/ft of torque, giving it serious grunt as well. The Telelever front suspension keeps road rides smooth and a reliable shaft drive means your odometer will spin around like a slot machine. Whether it's bombing down fire roads or ripping around the twisties and snacking on unsuspecting sport bikes, one thing's for sure: the R 1200 GS devours any road you throw at it.
26 years ago, BMW Motorrad created the travel Enduro segment and since then has stood alone as its leader. But now it's time to raise the bar - with the BMW R1200GS. Following the tradition of its forebears, this is the optimum motorbike for off-road and on-road use. It also heralds a completely new era of dynamic performance. The BMW R1200GS has some significant differences compared to the previous model: weight has been reduced by an appreciable 12% in conjunction with an increase in engine power of 15%. The bike delivers an impressive performance off-road with precision power control and outstanding agility on the asphalt.Make Model
