‘BMW have raised the bar’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test - JON URRY GUEST TESTER

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.
