BMW's drive to continually excel and evolve in order to create the most impressive enduro bikes, has culminated in the innovation which is the BMW R 1200 GS. Its robust and dynamic form makes it instantly recognisable as a BMW enduro, but its revised materials and exquisitely refined surfaces, coupled with the mighty two-cylinder engine, has produced even more style and power.
Its performance is effortless, with the water-cooled boxer engine gliding smoothly from a start to top speeds of over 125mph. With its 125Nm of torque and 123bhp, you will get extraordinary power in all driving conditions. The engine, which is based on a new concept of combined air and liquid cooling plus vertical flow through the cylinders, now offers flawless reliability and consistently high torque.
Moreover, the improved Paralever and Telelever design has resulted in a more sensitive response on uneven roads. Optional extras such as heated handlebar grips and cruise control also give this model a luxurious edge.
The standard UK model comes complete with an Anti-lock Braking System to significantly prevent skidding, along with hand-guards and pannier fastenings. A wide range of optional extras is also available including Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA) and Automatic stability control (ASC). This makes it a bike ahead of its time, given that this technology does not become mandatory on all models within the EU until 2016
