BMW Motorrad has brought in a wide range of bikes in India. These are in a price range that extends from Rs 15.9 lakh for the BMW R1200 GS Standard right up to Rs 28.5 lakh for the top-of-the-line BMW K1600 GTL PRO. The R1200 GS Adventure is offered in three versions. First is the standard, which is priced at Rs 17.50 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), second the dynamic+ retailing at Rs 20.90 lakh and the top-end Pro that costs Rs 21.40 lakh.

Furthermore, the tyre sizes are at 120/70 R19 in front and 170/60 R17 at the rear.
The engine on the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure is the same as the 1200 GS, which is a 1,170cc engine delivering an output of 125bhp and 125Nm of torque at the rear wheels.

The standard version gets two riding modes including rain and road, while it also gets the base version of the Automatic Traction Control (ATC). On the other hand, the dynamic version comes packed with ABS Pro, Hill Start Control (HSC) and the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) in addition to the standard features. Furthermore, it features Gearshift Assistant Pro, LED headlights, turn indicators and auxiliary lights. Then, there is cruise control, an on-board computer and provision for aluminium panniers. Meanwhile, the top-end Pro trim gets all the afore-mentioned features, but also gets heated grips, tyre pressure control and a chrome exhaust pipe.
