Features

Features

  • DISCOVER CULTURES: MW Motorrad is entering territory with the BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control system. What does this mean for you? That means smoother running in the low speed range and high torque in each speed range. This results in a balanced engine running that gives you even more confidence when riding your R 1250 GS Adventure. The engine capacity is now 1,254 cc. This performance increase is clearly noticeable on any terrain with 136 hp and 105 lb-ft max. torque at 6,250 rpm. The high torque curve, the elasticity with impressive sprint qualities and the sovereign acceleration let you experience your adventures with even more intensity. The updated engine with BMW ShiftCam ensures an optimal combustion process and thus an overall increase in energy efficiency.
  • BMW MOTORRAD SPEZIAL: BMW Motorrad Spezial offers especially high-quality and design-defining Billet Pack packages for the R 1250 GS Adventure. The HP Billet Packs underline the sporty character of the machine with aluminum components in two-color look. The Option 719 Classic Billet Pack sets stylistic accents with a pure character in a silver-colored look. The scope of each package extends to: Cylinder head cover left / right, Engine housing cover, Cover expansion tank left / right, Adjustable brake lever, Clutch lever adjustable, Mirror left / right, Adjustable foot levers left / right.
  • 7.9-GALLON FUEL TANK: 7.9 gallons of fuel gives you the range you need for long distances. Best of all, with the energy efficiency of the Boxer engine, you can go even further with one tank of fuel.
  • FULL LED HEADLIGHTS AS STANDARD: In both low beam and high beam, the illumination is wider, more consistent and further than with conventional headlights.
  • 6.5 IN. COLOR TFT DISPLAY WITH CONNECTIVITY IN SERIES: Connect your smartphone to your bike via Bluetooth. The 6.5-inch TFT display shows you everything about your motorcycle and offers you in conjunction with the smartphone app additional features such as navigation, music and phone.
  • BIG WINDSCREEN: No matter where it takes you. The large windscreen offers high comfort for the head, neck and shoulders as well as weather protection in every riding situation.
  • BMW SHIFTCAM: The ShiftCam lettering: a clear indication of the boxer engine with variable camshaft control.
  • STYLE HP: The Style HP includes front suspension extension, frame guard, gold cross-spoked wheels and the Rally seat – as well as BMW Motorsport colors.
  • STYLE EXCLUSIVE: Valuable materials and haptics characterize the Style Exclusive. The matte paint Kalamata Metallic Matte is very elegant when combined with the dark frame. The black handlebars and golden calipers round off the overall impression.
