BMW R 1250 GS Adventure Price, Specifications And Features

The Anniversary Edition of the BMW R 1250 GS Adventure represents 40 years of BMW adventure touring. The R 1250 GS is already among the top touring enduro motorcycles on the market, but the Edition 40 Years GS is a real stunner. We love its black and yellow paint scheme, a tribute to the R100 GS of the late ‘80s. With its 1254 cc motor, this bike cranks out 136 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque at 7,550 rpm. At 590 pounds, it’s a heavy load, but it’s a manageable ride thanks to the boxer twin engine’s low centre of gravity. We’d opt for the Touring and Dynamic packages along with upgrades like heated seats and adaptive headlights. With that specification, you’ll get to experience one of the best offerings in today’s adventure motorcycle market.
