Buyer's Guide > R1200GS
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
BMW's R1200GS continues to be the brand's best-selling machine. It's the adventure bike all the other manufacturers want to beat, but year after year it remains the king of its class. If you want to take it into the trails, be sure to order the wire wheels at time of purchase and save a bundle. This is the basic version, with cast wheels. Replace them, if you want to hoon about at mad speeds in the dirt.
