What Is It?

The BMW R1200GSA is a popular premium adventure style bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 1,170 cc Boxer engine producing 125 bhp at 7,750 rpm and maximum torque at 6,500 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame and shaft drive
  • Dual 305 mm discs up front with Brembo four piston calipers
  • 275 mm disc at the rear with Brembo two piston caliper

Compared to the 2010-2013 model there's a new liquid cooled engine with 15 bhp more power, a 500 rpm higher red line, traction control and ABS as standard, a larger rear disc, the brakes are now Brembos, the adjustable screen has been improved, there's less vibration, a lighter fuel tank design and a steering damper but 4 kg has been added to the weight.

It builds on the road focused R1200GS with wire spoked wheels, knobbly tyres, crash bars, cylinder head protectors, a belly pan, hand guards, taller screen, more powerful alternator, a heavier flywheel, downforce inducing front beak, slightly longer suspension travel and increased range. The 19" front wheel takes a 120/70 tyre and the rear 17" a 170/60.
