BMW R1200GS, 2013 MCN overall Machine of the Year New model price from £12,185
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." TJ Skrobot, Sales Manager Balderston Motorcycles
