Features

Features

  • PERFORMANCE, EFFICIENCY, CONTROL: The twin-cylinder Boxer engine of the R 1250 GS fascinates in its diversity right from the very first moment. Its character is unmistakable – whatever the ride. It offers you increased performance and smooth running at low speeds at the same time. The BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control system ensures greater torque across the entire power band, providing greater control in every riding situation, giving you power whenever you need it. More power, more torque – and increased fuel efficiency. The strong performance with fewer gear changes gives you more control.
  • CONNECTIVITY WITH COLOR DISPLAY AS STANDARD: The 6.5-inch TFT color display shows information such as speed and rpm, navigation, phone, media, and more. When darkness sets in or when riding through tunnels, the lighting and color intensity of the display are automatically adjusted. Even in strong sunlight, all of the information is easy to read.
  • HILL START CONTROL COMES STANDARD: The standard Hill Start Control makes starting on slopes easier. With a quick, firm pull of the handbrake lever, the rear brake can easily be applied without having to step on the foot brake or continuing to hold the hand brake. When riding off, the brake is released automatically.
  • BMW MOTORRAD SPEZIAL: BMW Motorrad Spezial offers particularly design-defining billet packs for the R 1250 GS as of Spring 2019, personalizing your motorcycle from the valve covers and levers down to the oil filler plugs. The HP billet pack underlines the sporty character of the machine with milled aluminum components that have striking blue accents. The Option 719 Classic billet pack combines stylish silver accents with high-quality components. Expect to see style everywhere you look.
  • STANDARD FULL LED HEADLIGHTS WITH ILLUMINATED STYLE ELEMENT: Both in low-beam and high-beam lighting, the illumination is wider and more consistent than conventional lights. In addition, the light is whiter, making contours clearer and significantly increasing passive safety.
  • DYNAMIC BRAKE CONTROL: Available DBC supports you in emergency braking by counteracting involuntary throttle actuation in challenging riding scenarios. The system intervenes to reduce engine torque, and increase braking force. The result is more safety through the best possible use of the braking capacity to stabilize your bike and shorten the stopping distance.
  • CONNECTIVITY WITH HIGH-RESOLUTION COLOR DISPLAY IN SERIES: Connect your smartphone to your bike via Bluetooth. The 6.5-inch TFT display provides extensive information about your motorcycle and offers additional features such as navigation, music, and connectivity via your smart phone.
  • NEXT-GEN DYNAMIC ESA: Available Next-Gen Dynamic ESA ensures more stable and therefore even safer ride characteristics. The system automatically regulates the damping and spring preload of the struts depending on riding conditions and load of your bike, and offers the highest level of comfort and traction on a wide variety of surfaces, when cornering.
  • RIDE MODES PRO AS AN OPTION WITH FEATURES: Ride Modes Pro adds ABS Pro, Enduro ABS, DTC, Dynamic Mode, Dynamic, Pro Mode, Enduro Mode, and Enduro Pro Mode as well as these additional features: Hill Start Control Pro with selectable automatic brake activation on hills and Dynamic Brake Control.
  • EVEN MORE EXPRESSIVE: The Exclusive Style Package combines Black Storm Metallic with Night Black Matte paint. A black powertrain and handlebars, grey frame and gold colored brake calipers round off the stylish appearance.
  • BMW SHIFTCAM: The ShiftCam lettering: a clear indication of the Boxer engine with variable camshaft control.
  • IMPROVED OFF-ROAD CAPABILITY: The HP Style Package includes front-wheel cover extension, radiator protection, frame protection, gold cross spoke wheels, rally seat, and rally windshield – as well as BMW Motorsport colors.
  • GEAR SHIFT ASSIST PRO: Gear Shift Assist Pro is a feature known and loved by racers, allowing riders to upshift and downshift without pulling the clutch lever. This means that you always have the handlebars firmly in your grip while reducing shift time and decreasing the impact of the load change on the rear wheel.
