BMW MOTORRAD UNVEILS THE CLASS-LEADING 2014 R 1200 GS ADVENTURE
BMW Motorrad has unveiled the eagerly awaited update to the R 1200 GS Adventure. Based on the best-selling liquid-cooled BMW R 1200 GS, the new GS Adventure offers even more long-distance potential, comfort and off-road ability.
Thanks to improved aerodynamics and a redesigned heavier engine flywheel, the new R 1200 GS Adventure matches the class-leading tank range of the outgoing air-cooled Adventure, while also allowing a reduced, lighter 30-litre tank.
The BMW GS Adventure is optimised for on and off-road riding thanks to an additional 20mm of spring travel and modified geometry of the trailing arm compared to the BMW R 1200 GS, while the now model has an extra 10mm of ground clearance over the previous Adventure.
At SuperBike Rental the new BMW GS Adventure comes with switchable ABS, traction control and both ‘Road’ and ‘Rain’ riding modes as standard and BMW Motorrad’s revolutionary Dynamic ESA semi-active suspension system.
Comfort is improved even further over the new R 1200 GS thanks to completely redesigned bodywork with a taller, adjustable screen, the addition of a wider, tilt-adjustable bench seat and new enduro footrests.
