Registration for BMW Motorrad has increased by 6.1 percent, while for new BMW motorcycles have grown by 3.6 percent. The exceptional success of the GSAdventure and BMW R1200 GS versions has proven the fact that the GS brand is quite famous among shoppers right from the time when the first ever adventure sports bike was launched in the year 1980. The updated S 1000 RR supersports bike has gained better results in terms of sales.
The BMW R1200 GS isn’t just able to handle everything; it’s actually built to do so. And in this synthesis of supreme touring suitability, easy handling, comfort for rider and pillion passenger and off-road potential, there is simply no other bike that does it better.

For R1200 GS, torque was given higher priority than output in line with practical considerations. The supreme riding pleasure is emphasized by a powerful sound from the new exhaust system with exhaust flap which will everyone will love.
