R1200GS RE­FRESH

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

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.
