Engine suitable for Adventure touring

The BMW R1200GS Adventure bike has an excellent 1,170cc, two-cylinder boxer engine equipped with 4 valves per cylinder and is air or liquid cooled. The mechanical noise is reduced by water cooling which also improves the heat up time of the motorcycle as well as improving combustion stability which leads to less emissions from the exhaust. The R1200 GS Adventure motorcycle is 125hp and has radiators which are hidden inside of the side panels. The engine makes it easy for the BMW motorcycle to push through muddy ground because of the output shaft on the left side of the engine and has a wet clutch integrated 6-speed gearbox to allow the exhaust silencer to be moved to the right side of the bike. The BMW bike engine also has a top speed of about 200km/h (124.3miles) with an electronic intake pipe injection fuel system.

Larger crash protection

The BMW R1200GS Adventure weighs 260kgs (573pounds). The seat height of the Adventure R1200GS is 890mm. The height of the BMW R1200GS Adventure is one inch taller than the base R1200GS at 1451mm. With an overall length of 2255mm and slightly wider than the base model at 981mm.

Great Enduro Pro and Dynamic Pro Ride Modes

The BMW R1200GS Adventure with somewhat similar ride modes as the base R1200GS, has “Enduro pro ” and “Dynamic pro” ride modes, which make it seem like you are controlling two different bikes. Enduro slows the bike although really comfortable, Enduro in the BMW R1200GS absorbs big humps easier. The bike is powerful with brakes that get harder when the suspension tightens. You will be amazed at how quick the ABS traction control and power delivery work.

Ideal for the experienced biker

The BMW R1200GS Adventure is too big and too powerful for a new bike rider, so much experience is needed. With a steep learning curve, an inexperienced bike rider would not be able to ride the bike with ease because of the way it is shaft driven.

Maximum power for long travels

When it comes to heavy winds the balance helps for stability in-order to stay in control of the bike. When riding in gravel roads the suspension of the BMW R1200GS, gives you so much control.
