BMW Motorrad Thailand is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its legendary GS range with the BMW R 1250 GS Adventure Edition 40 Years GS – an authentically adventurous symbol that pays tribute to the GS family’s long history while still delivering all the advanced capabilities and superior power of modern bikes. Fitted in a striking black and yellow look, the “40 Years GS” edition commemorates the legendary R 100 GS with the addition of the newly developed two-cylinder ShiftCam boxer engine and extended riding modes Pro to offer unlimited riding pleasure on any terrain. Available in a limited production run of 34 units, the BMW R 1250 GS Adventure Edition 40 Years GS will be making a bold statement in its all-terrain journey across Thailand from today onwards at BMW Motorrad authorised dealers nationwide.
The BMW R 1250 GS Adventure Edition 40 Years GS, like its siblings in the GS family, is the perfect companion for every terrain and every road. The legendary 1,254-cc two-cylinder boxer engine ensures a superior and cultivated drive with a power output of 100 kW (136 hp) at 7,750 rpm and up to 143 Nm torque at 6,250 rpm. With BMW ShiftCam technology, the engine now provides superior power across the entire speed range, extremely smooth and quiet running and outstanding consumption and emission values.
In unstable driving conditions, the BMW R 1250 GS Adventure Edition 40 Years GS enables extra safety with the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and Riding modes Pro which includes Eco, Rain, Road, Dynamic, Dynamic Pro, Enduro and Enduro Pro. BMW Motorrad Integral ABS Pro is on hands to ensure even more safety when braking, even in cornering or inclined positions, working in tandem with Hill Start Control Pro and Dynamic ESA to provide maximum driving safety and performance regardless of road conditions and the rider’s manoeuvring.
The modern touch in the “40 Years GS” edition is conveyed through a range of innovative features including full-LED adaptive headlights and new lighting function. With the cruising light, the two front turn indicator bulbs are operated so that they are permanently dimmed simultaneously. The multifunctional LED indicator lights, also equipped as standard, can emit yellow flashing light and red brake light or rear light simultaneously. The BMW R 1250 GS Adventure Edition 40 Years GS also delivers full connectivity and usability features as standard on a 6.5-inch full-colour TFT screen, along with enhanced convenience from Cruise Control and Keyless Ride.
The most outstanding highlight of the R 1250 GS Adventure Edition 40 Years GS is its eye-catching “Bumblebee” look in Black Storm Metallic and yellow paint inspired by the R 100 GS. The striking yellow “40 years GS” sticker on the front gleams the uniqueness of this special edition. The hand guard in yellow and Option 719 low Rallye seat bench in expressive black-yellow design add elements of surprise to the visual of the R 1250 GS Adventure Edition 40 Years GS. The bike’s off-road capabilities are completed in terms of both look and use with Cross Spoke wheels.
