BMW R 1200 GS Overview

BMW are equally well known for their prowess in building rugged, reliable and contemporary motorcycles as they are for building quality for wheelers. For years the marque has been establishing several noteworthy benchmarks and has come to be known as one of the most advanced bike manufacturers in the world. We can't forget that it was BMW indeed who put the first ABS system on a motorcycle and since then it has been emulated by other manufacturers throughout the world. BMW has also played an active role in developing enduro and dual sport machines and the BMW R1200 GS is one such machine that enjoys place of pride in the BMW range.

BMW R 1200 GS Engine & Transmission

The flat twin air/liquid cooled boxer engine on the R1200 GS is a DOHC, electronic fuel injected unit displacing 1170 cc with a bore X stroke ratio of 101X 73 mm and a compression ratio of 12.5:1. Featuring a balancer and 4 valves per cylinder this muscular unit manages to churn out 125 hp peak power @ 7,750 rpm and 125 NM of peak torque @ 6,500 rpm. Mighty impressive figures indeed but wait we are forgetting about the equally capable electronics as well alongwith the digital engine management with electromotive throttle adjuster. This engine unit is further given potency by the 6 speed constant mesh transmission with helical teeth and the hydraulic wet clutch unit with antihopping feature which helps get the power to the wheels via shaft drive instead of chain drive

BMW R 1200 GS Mileage

BMW R 1200 GS Performance and Handling

Performance and handling on the R 1200 GS are optimised for dual purpose i.e. for off-road as well as on-road operation. The heavy duty two section frame with the front end bolted on to the rear end uses the engine as a load bearing member. Another memorable BMW legacy is the Telelever and Paralever suspension setup. Featuring a central spring strut at the front and a cast aluminium single sided swingarm at the rear mated to a WAD strut dynamically adjustable for preload rebound and damping the suspension gives the R1200 GS much needed agility over a number of surfaces. The Dynamic ESA package available as an option on the GS configures the suspension automatically to the terrain and load state. Also much appreciated are the optional 'riding modes' that are basically a set of four different configurations which help adjust the way the bike rides on the go at the push of a button. It is a heavy bike mind you and coupled with the tall stance that weight might pose a problem for shorter riders. Get it moving though and on the move, the bike is very lithe and agile thanks to BMW having given the bike a more weight-forward stance thus centralising mass. The bike is ably supported by its lightweight cast aluminium wheels that have 120/70 tyres up front on a 3.00 X 19' rim and 170/60 tyres at the rear on a 4.50 X17" rim. The bike does provide ABS as standard and the good part is that it can be switched off as and when wanted. Braking duties up front are taken care of by 305 mm floating twin discs with mounted four piston callipers. The rear brake features a 276 mm floating single rotor twin piston calliper setup. The brakes do an excellent job of throwing the anchors as and when required.
