UNSTOPPABLE BMW R 1200 GS 2008

The new B MW R 1200 GS is one of a kind. An unstoppable machine that offers unlimited freedom to the rider. It is equally serene on tarmac and rough terrain alike – so now the only restriction on your touring is how homesick you get. It features an upgraded drive train, an even more expressive design, and, for the first time, the Enduro ESA suspension option. The BMW R 1200 GS – because even the most free of spirits need something to rely on.

More serene – a drive train that won’t let you down.
What makes a bike unstoppable? The obvious answer is power, and the new engine of the R 1200 GS delivers 105 horsepower, across a wider usable rev range than ever before. Add that to the new gear ratios and shorter final transmission, and the result is a unique combination of instant response and smooth power delivery – for maximum enjoyment wherever you go.

More striking – design that sets new standards.
Unstoppable performance should be reflected in irresistible looks. The new-look R 1200 GS features rugged stainless steel trims on the fuel tank, a neater front mud guard, a two-section hand guard, and a high-tech LED rear light, perfectly complemented by white indicators.

More versatile – suspension that can go anywhere. A bike can only truly claim to be unstoppable if it can master any terrain. And that’s why the R 1200 GS now offers the benefits of the optional Enduro ESA suspension system. This allows riders to adjust the damper settings and suspension height of both wheels electrohydraulically at the touch of a button. The result is a bike that offers outstanding roadholding for everyday riding, yet doesn’t bottom out on even the roughest of terrain.

More perfect – little things that make a big difference.
A tiny change can sometimes make all the difference – the difference between merely good and unstoppable. Which is why BMW Motorrad has completely redesigned the handlebars of the R 1200 GS. For greater off-road comfort when riding in the standing position, they can be mounted further forward than is usual. The seat design has also been improved, and an extra-tough hand guard is available as an option.
