2017 GS Models

Technical changes to the liquid-cooled boxer models.

The engines of the liquid cooled boxer models will be subject to supplementary technical changes as well as the application of EU4 measures and the addition of sidelights as required by law.   

Like the R 1200 GS Adventure, all liquid-cooled boxer models will now be fitted with a judder damper on the transmission output shaft. New features also include a revised selector drum actuator, transmission shafts and transmission shaft bearing. An OBD indicator lamp in the cockpit has been added to meet EU4 requirements.

A New BMW R 1200 GS Adventure “Triple Black” special model.

“Triple Black” – this special version of the BMW R 1200 GS has established its own tradition and the name once again says it all. BMW Motorrad is responding to a wish expressed by many customers by bringing out this enduro model in a virtually all-black finish.

The central fuel tank cover, storage compartment lid and front mudguard in Blackstorm metallic together with fuel tank side panels in Dark Slate metallic give the legendary travel enduro a strikingly masculine look. Powerful technical accentuations are provided by the front and rear frame in Agate Grey in combination with the black engine, gearbox and swinging arm.
