The GS series of adventure-touring motorcycles have been the highest sellers for BMW Motorrad for a very long time, and the 2019 year model comes with a major update to it.
First up is the increase in displacement of the engine, which now is 1254cc worth. It also has intelligent variable valve timing, which adjusts both lift and duration as needed. Peak power and torque figures are now 136bhp and 143Nm. Hill start control, traction control and two riding modes – road and rain – are standard. A 6.5-inch TFT colour screen displays all the information you need, and all-LED lighting rounds off the package.
Since the R 1250 GS is a road-biased variant, it will compete with the likes of the Ducati Multistrada 1260 and Triumph Tiger 1200’s road-biased variants. Prices begin at Rs 16.9 lakhs onward, ex-showroom.
