New BMW R 1250 GS and R 1250 GS Adventure launched


BMW Motorrad launched the new R 1250 GS and the R 1250 GS Adventure across India. The new bikes will be available as completely built-up units (CBU) and can be booked at the company’s dealerships.

The GS models offer distinctive, powerful and reliable propulsion when it comes to setting off on an extended tour or a long-distance journey or simply enjoying the satisfying pleasure of a short weekend trip. Whether in the city, on the motorway or off-road, the bikes gives the rider more freedom and increased riding pleasure. They are built for challenges. No matter whether it is tarmac roads, gravel tracks or rough terrain, the large-capacity of the GS gets its riders safely to their destination.

In design, the all-new R 1250 GS and the R 1250 GS Adventure conveys pure robustness. The unmistakable flyline make it clear that they belong to the Motorrad GS family. The R 1250 GS has a pronounced modern appearance. The striking elements of mainframe, handlebar and drivetrain in silver give it a high level of visual quality. The luggage bridge in white aluminium matt with trim holder in Nürburg Silver completes the dynamic look. The fork slider tubes anodized in gold emphasise the off-road talents. The fuel tank side trim elements in asphalt grey metallic provide a touch of distinction.

As for the R 1250 GS Adventure, it has a powerful and masculine look. Numerous elements in black like cross-spoke wheels, brake calipers and a main frame, together with the black coated powertrain gives it a very homogeneous appearance. The main frame in aluminium silver metallic matt and the silver-coloured handlebars create a fascinating contrast. The driving dynamics and off-road qualities are highlighted by hand protectors in black along with the red and black seat.

Both models feature the powerful 2-cylinder in-line Boxer engine with a displacement of 1254cc, producing a power output of 100 kW (136 hp) at 7,750 rpm for dynamic performance, generating a maximum torque of 143 Nm at 6,250 rpm. Riders of the latest bikes have two riding modes available in order to be able to adapt the motorcycle to individual rider preferences.

Pushing boundaries is part of the BMW DNA. Both motorcycles are equipped with a completely new instrument cluster design, consisting an analogue speedometer and multifunctional display. Fast and clear information is available with the optional equipment known as Connectivity, with a 6.5 inch full-colour TFT display. Integrating operation via the BMW Motorrad multi-controller, it gives the rider quick access to vehicle and connectivity functions. Phone and media functions can be used without having to install an app. The rider can easily make telephone calls and enjoy listening to music with Bluetooth connection. In addition, the BMW Motorrad Connected app offers everyday-suitable and practice-oriented arrow navigation directly via the TFT display.
