R 1250 GS

With even more drive for adventure.

The new BMW R 1250 GS: concentrated performance meets impressive efficiency. With the new BMW R 1250 GS you will experience the new Boxer even more directly. The en-gine capacity increase brings you more performance – 136 hp and 1250 ccm. The variable camshaft control system BMW ShiftCam ensures superior power delivery – in the high and low-engine speed ranges. Whether in the city, on the motorway or, of course, off-road: every metres gives you more freedom and increases the riding pleasure. New styles and colours, numerous technical details and exciting options to individualise intensify the char-acter of the new BMW R 1250 GS.

Performance, efficiency, control.

The twin-cylinder boxer engine of the new R 1250 GS fascinates in its diversity right from the very first moment. Its character is unmistakeable – in every engine speed range. It offers you increased performance and smooth running at low speeds at the same time. The BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control ensures more powerful torque curve over the entire engine speed range, providing greater control in every riding situation. Giving you power whenever you need it. More cubic capacity, more power – with higher efficiency. The strong performance with fewer gear changes gives you sovereignty. In short: You feel the boxer’s energy even more directly.

Connectivity with colour display as standard.

The 6.5-inch TFT colour display shows information such as speed and rpm, navigation, te-lephony, media and additional vehicle information. When darkness sets in or when riding through tunnels, the lighting and colour intensity of the display are automatically adjusted. Even in strong sunlight, all of the information is very easy to read.

Hill Start Controll HSC as standard.

The standard Hill Start Controll HSC makes starting on slopes easier. With the help of the handbrake lever, the rear brake can be easily applied. When riding off, the brake is released automatically.

BMW Motorrad Spezial.

BMW Motorrad Spezial offers particularly design-defining billed packs packages for the R 1250 GS. The HP billet packs underlines the sporty character of the machine with aluminium components. The Classic billet pack of the exclusive Option 719 sets stylish accents with high-quality components in a silver-coloured look. And the Option 719 Storm billet pack gives the machine a a unique rough look in silver-grey.

Full LED headlights as standard.

Both in low-beam and high-beam lighting, the illumination is wider and more homogeneous than conventional lights. In addition, the light is whiter, making contours clearer and signifi-cantly increasing passive safety.

Dynamic Brake Control.

DBC supports you in emergency braking by counteracting the often unwanted gas actuation in such an extreme situation. The intervention in the engine control reduces the engine torque. At the same time, the braking power is increased at the rear wheel. The result: more safety through the best possible use of the braking capacity to stabilize your bike and shorten the stopping distance.
