2013 BMW R1200GS Review Specification and Price , The “BMW GS” concept has embodied riding pleasure and the desire for adventure for over 30 years. This applies especially to the GS motorcycles with the opposed-twin “boxer” engine. The “big GS” allows motorcyclists to explore the most remote corners of the world – an idea that has already inspired numerous globetrotters to set off on their travels.

But the GS was and still is much more than this. Whether sports-style cornering on winding country roads, excellent travel times due to high motorway speeds, relaxed tours with a passenger or daring rides over rough terrain – every GS has offered supreme mastery of these skills in its respective era and this won’t change with the new version.

Talking about Bikes and Motorcycles , It is the unique integrated concept of the big travel enduro bike with boxer engine, complete with authentic charm and a powerful, high-torque engine, which is loved by legions of motorcycle fans all over the world to this day. It is not for nothing that the “big BMW GS” with boxer engine has been the undisputed frontrunner in its market segment for many years and is the best-seller within the BMW Motorrad model range. BMW is now beginning a whole new chapter in GS history: the most popular travel enduro in the world has been brought to perfection.

The challenge: how to improve even more following nine years at the top.

Even in its ninth year of production, the current BMW R 1200 GS or BMW Touring Motorscycles is still setting the benchmark in its segment in comparative tests with its outstanding overall concept and innovative technology. With over 170,000 units sold, it is the most successful and top-selling travel enduro in the world.

So the challenge facing the BMW Motorrad development department was considerable: to further optimise the GS – an icon of three decades – improve it in all areas and equip it with innovative technical solutions to ensure it is in good shape for the future.

The new BMW R 1200 GS also expresses its sharper character and its universal talents with a new colour concept comprising four different colours for selected components. As a travel enduro for highly active riding and featuring innovative technology, its colouring deliberately includes contrasts and a dynamic , very light effect. The four main colours to choose from for the body – Alpine White, Racing Red, Blue Fire and Thunder Grey Metallic – provide a fascinating contrast with the silver engine housing and frame.

While Racing Red highlights the dynamic, sporty character of the new BMW R 1200 GS, Blue Fire gives it a markedly modern appearance. Alpine White as a BMW Motorrad brand colour highlights the traditional enduro genes of the new BMW R 1200 GS. Here BMW Motorrad especially emphasises the solid, masculine character of the GS as well as its off-road aspirations. Meanwhile Thunder Grey Metallic gives the new BMW R 1200 GS a sense of classic understatement with a striking presence and elegance. The combination of various metal finishes underscores the sophisticated, innovative technology of the new GS. for 2013 BMW R1200GS price ? See dealer for Pricing.
