High-quality design elements, attractive colors and styles make the new GS unmatched. The main frame color can be selected in three different finishes. Details like the galvanized radiator cowl allude to the increased visual robustness. Even stainless steel is used in the styles. Furthermore, the Exclusive and Rally styles have their own style-forming accents: from the tank trim right up to the GS lettering. The R 1200 GS has never been more individual – just like you.
READY FOR ANYTHING THAT IS TO COME.
Innovations like the front spray guard, wind wing elements and off-road protective parts make your GS even more robust. The latest technology reacts acutely to different conditions and supports you in difficult situations. With equipment this robust, you can conquer every corner of the globe with your GS.
The firm main frame with the engine as a supporting element ensures a low center of gravity. This in turn improves handling while at the same time retaining enormous lane stability. The Paralever rear and Telelever front suspension elements provide perfectly tuned damping performance on a variety of terrain.
POWER FOR EVERY SITUATION.
Tried, tested and proven under the highest strain again and again: the twin-cylinder boxer engine with 125 HP (92 kW) is noticeably efficient and has very high torque – for noticeable riding enjoyment in any situation. The boxer is not only legendary for its reliability, it is also known for being extremely good-natured. The wet clutch with anti-hopping function and the electronic throttle facilitate a fine dosage of power.
AN ICON MEETS TECHNOLOGY.
Rain and Road riding modes as well as the Automatic Stability Control (ASC) are standard and allow the motorcycle to adapt and optimally suit the circumstances. Optional Ride Modes Pro, like the Enduro and Dynamic modes, provide even more opportunities for adjusting the riding characteristics to your personal riding style. It also includes Hill Start Control, which prevents the bike from rolling backwards on an incline, and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), which also accounts for the bike’s lean-angle, supporting safety and riding dynamics. ABS Pro is also included in the Ride Modes Pro option, which helps when cornering to apply the proper amount of ABS braking to assist in diffusing hazardous situations.
