The new BMW R 1250 GS Adventure.
The new BMW R 1250 GS Adventure is built for your challenges. Impassable routes, adverse conditions and the most remote destinations are no problem for the queen of dual-sport motorcycles. With the increase in capacity to 1254 cc and 100kW (136 hp), you have even more power for wilderness, desert or country road. In addition to the increased performance, the engine also works more efficiently and gives you the endurance you need in order to reach the next stage finish. The vari-able camshaft control BMW ShiftCam is an entirely new feature – it gives you sover-eignty in every engine speed range and gives the opposed-twin engine an unprec-edented culture. No matter what adventure drives you, the BMW R 1250 GS Adven-ture will go any distance with you.
Discover new cultures.
BMW Motorrad is entering new territory with the BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control system. What does this mean for you? That means smoother running in the low speed range and high torque in each speed range. This results in a balanced engine running that gives you even more confidence when riding your R 1250 GS Adventure. The engine capacity is now 1254 ccm. This performance increase is clearly noticeable on any terrain with 100kW (136 hp) and 143 Nm max. torque at 6,250 rpm. The high torque curve, the elasticity with impressive sprint qualities and the sovereign acceleration let you experience your adventures with even more in-tensity. The revision of the engine with BMW Shiftcam ensures an optimal combus-tion process and thus an overall increase in energy efficiency.
Stay true to the line.
The design of the BMW R 1250 GS Adventure conveys pure robustness. With a new galvanized radiator cowl and a new cover of the oil intake snorkel, the front is even more durable. Both the redesigned engine protection bar and the tank pro-tection bar round off the impressive appearance.
Connectivity with high-resolution colour display as standard.
Connect your smartphone to your bike via Bluetooth. The 6.5-inch TFT display shows you everything about your motorcycle and offers you in conjunction with the smartphone app additional features such as navigation, music and telephony.
Standard riding modes.
Ideal for adventure in the mountains: the BMW R 1250 GS is equipped as stand-ard with Hill Start Control (HSC), making it easier for you to ride off on slopes.
