UNSTOPPABLE BMW R 1200 GS Adventure 2008

The BMW R 1200 GS Adventure is truly unstoppable. It is built without compromise to handle anything the planet’s roads – and off-road – can throw at it. The new, upgraded dreve train delivers effortless throttle response, the new Enduro ESA suspension option ensures supreme traction and ride comfort, and the classic design has been fine-tuned so that its looks are as memorable as its performance. The new R 1200 GS Adventure. No Desert, no mountain and no river can stop it. The only limit is your imagination.

Power that keeps it ahead of the field.
To be unstoppable, a bike needs power. Lots of power. Which is why the R 1200 GS Adventure offers 105 horsepower, with a wider usable rev range than ever before, new gear ratios and a shorter final transmission. The result is a unique combination of instant response and smooth power delivery – a ride like nothing you’ve experienced, for terrain that’s never been explored.

Looks that stand out from the crowd.
An unstoppable bike should look the part. The revised design of the R 1200 GS Adventure features a neater front mud guard, a two-section hand guard, a new deflector to channel cool air into the engine, and a high-tech LED rear light with white indicators. Because good design is a universal language.

A new Enduro ESA option that gives an unbeatable ride.
To be truly unstoppable, a bike must be able to perform on any terrain. And that’s exactly what the R 1200 GS Adventure can now do, thanks to the Enduro ESA option, which brings the benefits of BMW Motorrad’s intelligent ESA suspension system to this model for the first time. The damper settings and suspension height of both wheels can be adjusted electrohydraulically at the touch of a button. As a result, the suspension has the travel to prevent bottoming out on rough terrain, but still delivers optimum roadholding in everyday use. In short, it’s up for any challenge.

Optional equipment that’s completely exclusive.
The short first gear option is exclusive to the R 1200 GS Adventure, and reduces the already-low creep speed by a further 10 per cent – particularly useful over broken ground in tight spaces. Because being unstoppable is about control as much as power – especially in the sort of country that
other bikes can’t even reach in the first place.

Details that make all the difference.
Sometimes, the key to unstoppable performance lies in the little things. Things like the redesigned handlebars of the R 1200 GS Adventure. For greater off-road comfort when riding in the standing position, they can also be mounted further forward than is usual. An enhanced two-section hand guard is fitted as standard.
