Full details

The Adventure bike market has been huge in mainland Europe for many, many years and the UK is also enjoying a growing interest in the sector. The bikes typically offer rugged off road styling but in reality offer no real off road ability. However what they do deliver is an upright, comfortable riding position, large fuel tank for excellent range between stops and the majority offer luggage either as standard or as an option. The BMW GS machines have been around in various versions since the early 1980's. As you would expect these machines have seen huge changes over the years but the 'Boxer' engine and fuss free shaft drive have always been there.

On offer here we have a well cared for R1200GS model first registered in late 2006 and showing just 21,300 miles on the clocks. It comes fitted with the far easier to clean cast wheels and is a non ABS model. It features an onboard computer, heated grips and braided brake lines as standard. It also boasts a centre stand, knuckle guards and a set of sturdy engine bars. A large capacity detachable top box is also supplied. Priced at under £6.5k it is good value too. There are just over 21k miles on the clock. Featuring a genuine BMW, Vario, expandable and quick release top-box case & carrier. Including a set of SW Motech, engine bars along with a set of brush guards too. With the award-winning BMW factory fitted, heated grips. The screen is a large touring one and there is a radiator grill on it too. Doble Motorcycles stock number 9849.

Why buy from Doble Motorcycles

Doble Motorcycles is a long established family run business founded in 1967 by Mike Doble senior and late brother Chris Doble. It all started with just one shop no. 88 Brighton road selling one or two step through mopeds and motorcycle servicing. Chris managed the bike business while Mike set up a used car showroom across the road at 103, this also took off very well and thrived as the motor industry boomed. Time moved on and expansion was inevitable for the Motorcycle shop. Honda was increasing its model range rapidly with big sellers like the Superdream and CX500. The adjacent shop no. 90 was acquired and soon become filled with exciting new models. But again the market grew and the need to expand soon arrived. Seeming to take over one end of Coulsdon no. 86 was sought and another 50% increase in size took place. Honda's market share also grew to keep customers coming back time and time again. It became apparent that car sales were not able to keep pace with the two wheeled sales, so all resources were pooled together to once again double the business size to give huge choice and diversity to the customer. Doble Motorcycles Selling and specialising in the world's leading makes from day one has been Doble's biggest strength. Mike Doble Junior and Paul Styles now run the dealership along with Mike Doble Senior, Anne Doble, and a good enthusiastic and dedicated team who all love working with motorcycles. Dobles have been nominated Honda dealer of the year four times. The award is not just based on sales, but on product presentation and more importantly, all round customer care. This is something Dobles pride themselves on and a practise, which has earned them a reputation for service & reliability throughout their many years in Coulsdon.
