Free panniers with BMW R1200GS

Published: 01 April 2009

BMW is giving away free panniers with every new R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure from April 1 to the end of September 2009.

The panniers are worth £459 on the regular GS and £603 on the Adventure. BMW is also offering ‘Luggage Packs on the GS range which give better value.

The BMW information states:

Customers purchasing a new R 1200 GS from any BMW Motorrad dealership will qualify for a free set of Vario Panniers, capable of carrying a total load of 10kg per pannier and providing a value added benefit of £459.77.

These panniers have a unique adjusting mechanism that enables their overall volume to be adapted to suit the environment in which the bike is being ridden.

They can be reduced from a combined capacity of 68 litres to 50 litres simply by flipping a bar in each case.

This effectively reduces the width of the motorcycle by 120mm, which can prove extremely useful in congested zones when filtering through traffic.

And the new R 1200 GS Adventure is now available with a complimentary set of handmade Aluminium Panniers, providing customers with a value added benefit of £603.15.

he rugged aluminium panniers, which are able to carry 20kg and offer a combined capacity of a substantial 82 litres, are often preferred for enduro adventure riding.

They can easily be hooked onto the carriers and can be locked using a key coded to the bike.

Tony Jakeman, Marketing Manager for BMW Motorrad UK said: “With the 1200 GS range being the ultimate motorcycles for exploration and adventure, what better accessory to have than a complimentary set of panniers to go with the bikes?

With the added value of this fantastic offer combined with our affordable finance packages from BMW Select the ever popular R 1200 GS and Adventure are even better value for money.”

BMW Motorrad has also assembled a number of accessory packages to complement its R 1200 GS models.

The new ‘Luggage Packs’ represent even greater value for customers, offering a saving of £100 on retail prices.

The Luggage Pack for both the R 1200 GS and GS Adventure includes L/H and R/H inner bags, Top box and mounting kit, locks, a Top box inner bag and tank bag.
