    Price announced for the new BMW R 1200 GS.

    The latest GS is more advanced, more powerful, more economical and even better value.


    BMW Motorrad UK has announced the pricing and launch date for the all-new R 1200 GS, one of the most eagerly anticipated motorcycles of the decade.

    Based around a new, partially liquid-cooled Boxer engine, the 2013 GS is the first ever adventure motorcycle to feature semi-active suspension, alongside a host of performance, safety and comfort-enhancing innovations and options.

    The R 1200 GS, including the higher specification ‘Touring Equipment’ and ‘Enduro’ variants, will be launched at BMW Motorrad Dealerships on 02 March 2013, with prices starting from £11,395.

    Adrian Roderick, general manager for BMW Motorrad, said: “It is with great pleasure that we are able to announce the prices and launch date for the highly-anticipated new R 1200 GS. This stunning motorcycle is more innovative, more powerful and more affordable than ever before. Not only does it pack more in than the much-loved 2012 model, it is also even better value; offering a saving of £200 compared to the 2012 motorcycle with ABS. Once again, BMW Motorrad has raised the bar.”
