In 2013 the legendary BMW GS received a huge update. Almost every component had been changed; it gained more power (from 110bhp to 125bhp) thanks to a new partially water-cooled motor and was laden with the latest gadgets and rider assisting technology of the time.
With this 2013 - 2016 BMW R1200GS, you can feel the torque from as low-down as 4000rpm and up to 7000rpm. Stopping power comes from a set of powerful radial Brembos, complete with ABS. What's more, this GS is a comfortable ride and you can move the seat up and down to make it easier to touch the floor.
