‘BMW have raised the bar’
If you own a 2016 GS TE you already possess one of the best, and most versatile motorcycles on the planet with an extremely efficient electronics package. But the 2017 BMW is a significant step forwards in terms of refinement that only really becomes truly apparent the longer you spend riding. If you are in the market for a GS TE, the £2000 saving you get with the older machine is tempting, but if you want to cover major miles, it’s a false economy. The latest machine subtly moves the GS’S already incredibly high bar even higher.
