BMW Adventure special

New bikes

 20 May 2005 00:00

BMW has launched a special edition version of its R1150GS Adventure, offering even more focus on enduro and long distance riding.

The bike takes the already off-road focused Adventure and adds the Integral ABS braking system, crash bars, heated grips, and white indicator lenses. It will cost you almost £800 more than the standard R1200GS but will be more than £500 cheaper than buying the Adventure and adding all the bits separately.

Only 90 of the bikes will be coming to the UK and they will all be Blue and white. And BMW will even fit knobbly tyres free of charge if you want.

The firm has also recently released its sales figures for the last year confirming what our monthly reports have already shown, that the firm is showing unprecedented sales success.

Sales of the R1200GS have pushed it up to the third biggest selling bike in the UK while the R1200RT has outsold it’s nearest rival, the Pan European, by 26 percent. In all the company’s sales are up 46 percent in the last year.
