The new BMW R 1200 GS and its sister
model, the R 1200 GS Adventure, have been on the market
since the spring of 2010. The obvious hallmark on
the revised models of these popular touring enduros
is the new DOHC boxer engine familiar from the BMW

R 1200 GS Adventure it was specially revised and optimised.
Delivering 110 hp at 7750 rpm and a
max torque of 120 Nm at 6000 rpm, the new GS models
provide spontaneous dynamic response, powerful spurting
ability, and high torque over the whole range of engine
speeds, and again prove to be the touring enduro pioneers
of riding dynamics.
Like their predecessors, the new R
1200 GS and R 1200 GS Adventure present a virtually
perfect synthesis of offroad and onroad properties.
In the established manner, outstanding and reliable
performance is safeguarded by a torsionally rigid
suspension, the front wheel cover with the unique
BMW telelever, and the rear suspension with the BMW

as optional equipment ex works for the latest edition
of the R 1200 GS and R 1200 GS Adventure. At the simple
touch of a button, enduro ESA adjusts the suspension
to the most varied riding and load conditions.
