NEW BIKE / dead sexy – bmw gs adventure

October 7, 2013

BMW has announced that new liquid-cooled 2013 R1200GS, the bike making a huge splash on our upcoming April, 2013, cover, will have an MSRP of $15,800.

That, however, is for a base model that won’t likely be stocked by BMW’s 140 dealers. When bikes start arriving in mid-March, the vast majority of the K50 (BMW’s internal code for the new wasserboxer) R1200GSs will be in these three trim levels: Standard, Premium and Premium Plus. The Standard, equipped with heated grips, cruise control and saddlebag mounts, costs $16,600. The Premium, which includes the Touring Package (Dynamic ESA, On Board Computer Pro, GPS Preparation, chrome exhaust, heated grips, hand protection, saddlebag mounts) and the Active Package (Enduro ASC and Riding Modes), goes for $17,990.

At the top of the Boxer heap is the Premium Plus, priced at $18,870. This GS is fitted with the Comfort Package (heated grips, tire-pressure monitor, hand protection and saddlebag mounts), the Dynamic Package (Enduro ASC and Riding modes, Dynamic ESA, LED headlight, On Board Computer Pro, GPS preparation) and cruise control. As always, numerous options and packages are sold individually. Bikes will be available in Thunder Gray Metallic, Fire Blue, Racing Red or Alpine White colors.

For the record, the air-/oil-cooled R1200GS ($16,150) and R1200GS Adventure ($18,350) will be sold this year, as 2013 models.


Changes to the 2014 BMW R1200GS Adventure are as follows:

  • Increased flywheel mass in the engine and additional vibration damper for even smoother running and superior rideability.
  • Spring travel 20 millimetres longer at front and rear compared to R1200GS.
  • 10 millimetres more ground clearance than predecessor.
  • Modified geometry of trailing arm for even sharper handling.
  • Completely restyled bodywork in distinctly robust and masculine GS Adventure design.
  • 30-litre (7.9 gallon) fuel tank with similar range to predecessor.
  • ABS, ASC, and two riding modes as standard.
  • Three further riding modes available as an ex-works option.
  • Semi-active suspension Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) available as an ex-works option.
  • More comfortable, tilt-adjustable bench seat.
  • Large, adjustable windshield and air flaps.
  • Wide enduro footrests.
  • Adjustable, reinforced foot-operated levers.
  • Robust engine and tank protection bar.
  • Wide range of special accessories and optional extras available ex-works.
