HIGH­LIGHTS New Ral­lye ver­sion ar­rives Drive train mod­i­fi­ca­tions Op­tional next-gen Dy­namic ESA The 2016 up­dated R1200GS got driv­e­train re­vi­sions with an anti-jud­der damper on the trans­mis­sion out­put drive, and mod­i­fi­ca­tions to the se­lec­tor drum and trans­mis­sion shafts and Euro4 com­pli­ance. Now for 2017 we get new ver­sions, in­clud­ing this ag­gres­sive, classy-look­ing Ral­lye.

The Ral­lye comes on cross-spoke laced rims for im­proved off-road ca­pa­bil­ity and ver­sa­til­ity, and while they still come on road tyres, you can spec­ify it to wear knob­blies. It gets a raft of other lit­tle touches too, in­clud­ing a blue pow­der-coated frame, a Ral­lye seat, sports screen, ra­di­a­tor and frame guard, wide en­duro footrests and cross-spoke wheels. Sus­pen­sion up­grades (in­clud­ing longer, stiffer springs) are also avail­able for it if you want to re­ally go tonto off-road. The per­fect GS / GS Ad­ven­ture cross­over.
