Unbridled curiosity, the courage to discover something new again and again: This is what the R 1250 GS stands for. It has been an icon for four decades - and still continues to inspire with new features. The new LED light design gives it a brilliant appearance and offers maximum visibility: This is ensured by the LED swivelling headlights with adaptive headlights and the Cruising Light. Additional equipment such as seat heating give you extra comfort and, thanks to the seven riding modes, you can master any driving situation with confidence. With this GS, your thirst for discovery knows no bounds. You live the #SpiritOfGS.
EQUIPPED FOR ANY PURPOSE
Fast curve changes, gravel shooting up, endless tours: with the R 1250 GS, you decide what your adventure will look like. Its continuously optimised technology and extensive equipment will take you safely, dynamically and comfortably over any route.
LED flashing turn indicators as standard with Cruising Light option
Increase visibility thanks to their strong luminosity. The Cruising Light keeps the front indicators constantly dimmed and ensures a striking appearance, especially at night and in poor visibility. The Cruising Light is shown with the daytime running light activated in the headlight.
Handlebar risers of 30 mm
Ensure a relaxed posture and give you much more control when riding standing up.
Enduro package for trips off-road
Less road, more fun: Engine protection bar, sports suspension, handlebar risers and off-road tyres invite you to explore routes way off the beaten track.
Comfortable heated seat
Easily adjustable to several levels, it provides you and your passenger with comfortable warmth in low temperatures and on long tours.
Adaptive headlight with LED swivelling headlight
Enables the best possible illumination of the inner curve area.
Riding modes Pro and ECO Modus
Fun at the touch of a button: The Pro riding modes are adapted to different riding styles and give you even more control over your bike with features such as the new dynamic engine brake control. The new ECO Mode in series gets the most out of every full fuel tank.
DTC and ABS Pro in series
Enable precise handling in every riding situation: ABS Pro stabilises the bike when braking in a heel angle. DTC prevents the rear wheel from spinning on surfaces with little grip.
Connectivity with TFT display and USB remote positive terminal
The TFT display connects your smartphone and bike together and, together with the BMW Connected App, enables you to find your route, listen to music and make phone calls safely while on the move. Thanks to the new USB socket, your smartphone never runs out of power when you’re on the road.
Tarmacked roads, wet roads or unpaved gravel roads: The seven riding modes of the R 1250 GS ensure optimum grip and superior handling at all times. When the vehicle is stationary, you can pre-select up to four riding modes individually in the menu, which you can then select quickly and conveniently during the journey using the riding mode button. The new dynamic engine brake control provides more stability and easy control of the bike in the Pro riding modes; it prevents the rear wheel from slipping or jerking. And in the new standard ECO Mode, you get the maximum range from every tank of fuel.
See and be seen
The perfect illumination for every curve: The adaptive headlights switch on automatically when the vehicle is tilted, providing optimum illumination of bends depending on gradient and payload – a significant plus in terms of safety and comfort. The multifunctional rear LED flashing turn indicators ensure an eye-catching appearance and even greater visibility.
