Spy shots supposedly show redesigned big bore BMW adventure bike.
Okay, so we’ve done the intro and dirt thing in part 1, for this part it would seem like a good idea to cover some of the more general aspects of the GS as well as all that lovely wrap-up stuff. So let’s start by breaking down the bike into its component parts and summarizing how each bit held up over the year.
Over the year, this newest incarnation of the Boxer became a firm favourite at the CMG offices. After a season of about 10,000 km, with much regret and dragging of feet ,we finally had to give it back to BMW.

Of all the companies out there, trust the Germans to be the most logical when it comes to updates of their models. Almost like clockwork, once every five or so years, the Bavarian company launch a new version of their famous Boxer twin motor and then spend the next five years updating each R model in the line-up with said new motor. It’s logical, simple and very BMW.
