Any up­dates since 2013?

The bare bones have re­mained the same, but the elec­tronic op­tional ex­tras have steadily been up­dated and in 2016 in­clude cor­ner­ing ABS.

The dealer’s view

Òthe move by BMW to par­tially wa­ter-cool the GS was a mas­sive one, but from the word go it has been a bril­liant seller. I cur­rently have three used GSS on the show­room floor and IÕD be de­lighted if I had triple that num­ber, as they would all sell within a few weeks.

"Deal­ers wor­ried that rid­ers may ini­tially be sus­pi­cious of the re­vised en­gine, but this was far from the case as it was­nõt just wa­ter-cool­ing that the new model brought with it. The 2013 GS was such a huge up­date, to­tally new, and the ad­vance­ments in en­gine, brak­ing and elec­tron­ics on it were stun­ning and keep on im­prov­ing."

Owner’s view on mo­tor­cy­cle­

"ITÕS big, but also re­mark­ably flex­i­ble and com­pe­tent. Tour­ing, off-road­ing, com­mut­ing, fast A-roads Ð you will be sur­prised at what you can do on a GS and just how much fun you can have on this ex­cel­lent bike. Itõs cer­tainly a keeper. " Andyt
