The new BMW R 1300 GS sets a new benchmark in the travel enduro segment. With a wealth of innovations and a significant weight reduction of an impressive 12 kg compared to the previous model, it clearly stands out from the competition. The heart of this innovation is the legendary two-cylinder boxer engine, which, with a displacement of 1,300 cm3, produces an impressive 145 hp and a maximum torque of 149 Nm. This makes it the most powerful BMW boxer engine produced in series.
The new chassis of the R 1300 GS is a masterpiece of technology, with a sheet metal shell main frame made of steel and a rear frame made of die-cast aluminum, which improves the rigidity and precision of the steering behavior. The front wheel guidance EVO-Telelever with flex element and the revised rear wheel guidance EVO-Paralever also contribute to excellent driving stability.
The innovation also brings with it some electronic treats, including the Dynamic Suspension Adjustment (DSA) for dynamic adjustment of damping and spring rate as well as load compensation. This improves driving safety, performance and comfort, whether solo or with luggage.
In addition to the already impressive standard equipment, the R 1300 GS offers four riding modes, including the special "Enduro" mode for off-road adventures. The Matrix LED headlight, which is installed as standard, ensures outstanding illumination of the road and increases safety.
The Riding Assistant driver assistance option, the Active Cruise Control (ACC), the Front Collision Warning FCW and the Lane Change Warning (SWW ) makes riding a motorcycle safer and more comfortable. Adaptive vehicle height control and sports suspension are also available as optional equipment.
The design of the R 1300 GS is eye-catching with a flatter tank ramp and a new aluminum tank. The basic version is presented in Light White and emphasizes the traditional GS line. The Triple Black version gives the motorcycle a masculine look, while the GS Trophy version embodies sporty performance and off-road capability. The Option 719 Tramuntana variant combines gold cross-spoke wheels with a high-quality paint finish in Aurelius Green metallic.
In addition to all of these improvements, the R 1300 GS offers a wealth of special equipment and original BMW Motorrad accessories to further optimize individualization and the riding experience.
Overall, the BMW R 1300 GS marks a significant step forward in terms of performance, handling, features and safety and will undoubtedly exceed the expectations of adventure and travel enduro enthusiasts around the world.
