R 1200 GS Rallye

R 1200 GS Rallye



THE BMW R 1200 GS. More GS is impossible. It founded the dual-sport motorcycle segment – and is still leading it confidently today. The diversity – roads, cross-country, urban, countryside, comfort, performance – combined with the legendary robustness and the expertise from over 36 years of GS development result in a motorcycle which shies away from no competitors. A great many test triumphs and awards in technical magazines provide impressive proof of this. The R 1200 GS has always been inspiring. The new model goes one better: both in terms of its touring suitability and off-road performance. Which means for you: increased comfort, dynamics and more fun. In short: yet more adventure.
