2013 BMW R 1200 GS Adventure

Wherever you are, get ready for it: whether taking a quick trip to the nearest mountains or setting off for a different continent to discover faraway new cultures, the R 1200 GS Adventure will take you there. Range is not a problem with a tank capacity of 8.7 gallons. Robustness? The R 1200 GS Adventure looks as if it had invented the term - and it certainly has defined it in the motorcycle world.

This is partly due to the range of features which have become almost as legendary as the bike itself. On this machine you can take potholes with 1" more clearance than on the R 1200 GS. Perfect ergonomics, optimum gearing for every terrain, and a chassis which - whether fully loaded or not - will allow you to thrill your pillion passenger as well as surprise anyone ahead of you. The special equipment features off-road ESA and ASC continue to be unsurpassed, hence the motto: Unstoppable.

The bike’s unstoppable character is further enhanced with the new DOHC engine, which first displayed its impressive performance in the legendary HP2 Sport. For the R 1200 GS Adventure, torque was given higher priority than output in line with practical considerations. And you can feel it. 88 ft-lb of torque at the peak at 6000 rpm is one thing, but the consistently higher level of torque in the relevant range up to 5000 rpm can be fully experienced. The output has been increased to 110 hp at 7750 rpm.

The supreme riding pleasure is underscored by a powerful sound from the new exhaust system with exhaust flap – so take a test ride now!
