The debut of the new R 1200 GS touring enduro opens up a new chapter of the GS legend. For over 30 years, the “BMW GS” concept has represented adventure. This is particularly true for the GS motorcycles with boxer engines.
The “Big GS” bikes can be used to discover the most remote corners of our world – and have already provided many travelers with a trusty mount for their world tour.
To mark the launch of the new R 1200 GS, the motorcycle that the fans of the 2-cylinder touring brand is sending one of the new models on a very unusual world tour of five continents before the official market launch.
The “ONE WORLD. ONE GS” – Botswana, South Africa, New Mexico/USA and back to Europe Tour:
The new R 1200 GS will be ridden by a top-class jury of international VIPs, which will be announced at the EICMA motorcycle expo in Milan in November, will choose five rider applications received during the application period. These people will then have the opportunity to discover the new R 1200 GS for themselves on one of the five stages of the trip, taking the memory of the experience back home with them.
