Buyer's Guide > R1200GS Adventure
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
For 2017, BMW's flagship adventure bike got some upgrades to the driveline, some engine tweaking to meet Euro4 emissions, and the option of adding Riding Modes Pro, with assisted hill starts, ABS Pro (leaning ABS), "Rain" and "Road" riding modes, traction control, stability control, and more. Electronically-adjusted, self-leveling suspension is also optional, the bodywork has been updated, and there are more accessories added to BMW's ex-works program as well. The Adventure version, seen here, comes with wire wheels and other specialized bits for off-road use.
