BMW R 1250 GS is currently the brand’s flagship adventure tourer. The adventure tourer launched by BMW last year is a technologically advanced motorcycle that makes a rider’s life easy on, as well as, off-the-road. The R 1250 GS range comes in four variants – GS Standard, GS Pro, GS Adventure Standard and GS Adventure Pro. The R 1250 GS is more long-distance and road-biased adventurer. The ‘Adventure’ suffix, as the variant name suggests, is more like the ride-anywhere GS and adventure oriented. Both the superbikes are exclusively designed in classic ‘GS’ style and top the range of BMW’s globe-trotter motorcycles.
Both motorcycles are powered by a 1245-cc, 2-cylinder boxer engine which cranks out 136 Bhp at 7,750 rpm and 143 Nm of peak torque at 6250 rpm, paired with a six-speed gearbox. The new engine gets BMW’s variable camshaft control tech called ‘Shiftcam’. It allows the torque to spread evenly across the rev range and is easily capable of hitting top speed in excess of 200 Kmph.
The BMW R 1250 GS gets a 6.5-inch full-colour TFT multi-functional instrument panel with smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth. The LED headlamps and LED DRLs were revised and form a new pattern. It gets a distinct adventure tourer design that has a beak at the front. The bike gets a semi-active electronic suspension and there will also be a Sports suspension package on offer. Both motorcycles come with riding modes Automatic Stability Control (ASC) and Hill Start Control as standard. BMW is also offering keyless ride, heated grips, RDC tyre pressure control system, centre stand, cruise control and more as options.
