THE NEW BMW R 1250 GS.

BOUNDLESS THIRST FOR ADVENTURE

Unbridled curiosity, the courage to discover something new again and again: This is what the R 1250 GS stands for. It has been an icon for four decades - and still continues to inspire with new features. The new LED light design gives it a brilliant appearance and offers maximum visibility: This is ensured by the LED swivelling headlights with adaptive headlights and the Cruising Light. Additional equipment such as seat heating give you extra comfort and, thanks to the seven riding modes, you can master any driving situation with confidence. With this GS, your thirst for discovery knows no bounds.

The right mode for every adventure

Tarmacked roads, wet roads or unpaved gravel roads: The seven riding modes of the R 1250 GS ensure optimum grip and superior handling at all times. When the vehicle is stationary, you can pre-select up to four riding modes individually in the menu, which you can then select quickly and conveniently during the journey using the riding mode button. The new dynamic engine brake control provides more stability and easy control of the bike in the Pro riding modes; it prevents the rear wheel from slipping or jerking. And in the new standard ECO Mode, you get the maximum range from every tank of fuel.

See and be seen

The perfect illumination for every curve: The adaptive headlights switch on automatically when the vehicle is tilted, providing optimum illumination of bends depending on gradient and payload - a significant plus in terms of safety and comfort. The multifunctional rear LED flashing turn indicators ensure an eye-catching appearance and even greater visibility.

Performance, efficiency, control

The boxer engine of the R 1250 GS fascinates from the very first glance. You can feel its character in every engine speed range, because it offers you impressive performance with more smoothness at low rotational speeds. The variable BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control ensures more powerful torque development over the entire engine speed range, providing greater control in every riding situation. This means: More displacement and more performance with higher efficiency and therefore power whenever you need it. The strong pull with fewer gear changes gives you more freedom. This way you feel the boxer's energy even more directly.

Riding modes Pro and ECO Modus

Fun at the touch of a button: The Pro riding modes are adapted to different riding styles and give you even more control over your bike with features such as the new dynamic engine brake control. The new ECO Mode in series gets the most out of every full fuel tank.
BMW-R 1250 GS - Feature 07 - Feb21-TP

DTC and ABS Pro in series

Enable precise handling in every riding situation: ABS Pro stabilises the bike when braking in a heel angle. DTC prevents the rear wheel from spinning on surfaces with little grip.

Connectivity with TFT display and USB remote positive terminal

The TFT display connects your smartphone and bike together and, together with the BMW Connected App, enables you to find your route, listen to music and make phone calls safely while on the move. Thanks to the new USB socket, your smartphone never runs out of power when you're on the road.
