FROM £12,400OTR

R 1200 GS. Icon meets progress, perfection meets passion.
The R 1200 GS is THE GS. It founded the dual-sport motorcycle segment – and is still leading it confidently today.
The diversity – roads, cross-country, urban, countryside, comfort, performance – combined with the legendary robustness and the expertise from over 36 years of GS development result in a motorcycle which shies away from no competitors. A great many test triumphs and awards in technical magazines provide impressive proof for this. And it's not by accident that "the GS" is the top-selling motorcycle above 600 ccm – worldwide.
The new model goes one better: both in terms of its touring suitability and off-road performance. More comfort, more dynamics and more fun.

Personalisation – irreplaceable.
One thing always remains the same: robust, dynamic and full of character. New paint finishes and high-quality surfaces also highlight the striking GS design. And this is a good thing.
But whether it's elegant tank trims, front wheel spray protection, GS mouldings or new frame and body colours – the R 1200 GS has never been as diverse as this.
And the styles are new as well. The Exclusive style adds visual highlights and places the focus on a confident appearance and touring with high-quality materials and details.
The Rallye style does exactly what it says on the tin, and ambitioned off-road riders certainly get their money's worth.
In addition, there is an extensive range of optional accessories, including Keyless Ride, useful off-road accessories, and even luggage systems – to better adjust the GS to your own desires.
