The R1200GS is enjoying an odd twostage transition into 2017. Already available in dealers is an updated GS which boasts a few visual nips and tucks, as well as drivetrain revisions with an anti-judder damper on the transmission output drive, and modifications to the selector drum and transmission shafts. The bikes have also been made Euro4 compliant.
Now BMW have revealed the full 2017 version with a raft of further dynamic improvements, plus two new versions to pick from in the model line-up. A base model is available, as are three package options (Dynamic, Comfort and Touring), and now you can also pick between new Rallye or Exclusive models. The existing R1200GS Adventure continues in 2017, but we don’t expect a full model update until 2018.
