BMW Motorrad India has launched the new BMW R 1250 GS and BMW R 1250 GS Adventure motorcycles in India earlier today. The introductory price for the R 1250 GS Pro is Rs 20.45 lakh, while the R 1250 GS Adventure Pro is priced at Rs 22.40 lakh (ex-showroom, India, respectively). Both motorcycles will be available as Completely Built-up Units (CBU). They can be booked at BMW Motorrad dealerships from today onwards.
Both the R 1250 GS Pro and R 1250 GS Adventure Pro are powered by the same 1254cc 2-cylinder in-line Boxer engine producing a power output of 134bhp and generates a maximum torque of 143 Nm at 6,250 rpm. Furthermore, both motorcycles are equipped with Pro riding modes. With the two ‘Rain’ and ‘Road’ riding modes, the riding characteristics can be adapted to varied conditions. A standard ‘Eco’ riding mode is also available. Additionally, pro riding modes include Dynamic, Dynamic Pro, Enduro and Enduro Pro, with the ‘Dynamic Pro’ and ‘Enduro Pro’ allowing riders to customise those modes to their requirement. The optional Electronic Dynamic ESA improves on riding safety, performance and comfort thanks to automatic and adaptive damping depending on the riding conditions and manoeuvres.
As standard, both motorcycles come fitted with Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) and Hill Start Control Pro (HSC Pro). In terms of comfort, the rider is offered plenty of comfort features such as heated grips, a 12-volt and 5-volt power socket and a full LED adaptive headlight. Also, both the motorcycles are equipped with a 6.5 inch full-colour TFT display, which can be operated by the multi-controller on the handlebar, giving the rider access to the vehicle’s connectivity functions. The rider can easily make telephone calls and enjoy listening to music with a Bluetooth connection. In addition, the BMW Motorrad Connected app offers everyday-suitable and practice-oriented arrow navigation directly via the TFT display.
Both bikes look the same as their predecessors. Instead, they are offered with new optional colours: Style Triple Black and Style Rallye. The former blends blackstorm metallic/black/agate grey colours and gets several blacked-out components. At the same time, the latter uses light white/racing blue metallic/racing red colours for that extra bit of sportiness. BMW has also introduced a ’40 Years GS’ liveries for both models. They come in a yellow/black paint scheme, graphics, yellow-tinted visor, yellow seat, engine guard, and golden spoke wheels.
Mr Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India, said, “BMW Motorrad GS models are the ultimate icons of the adventure segment. GS is not just a motorcycle, it’s an attitude that always inspires. Consistent performance, an impressive range of equipment, and incomparable riding experience are the key attributes of the GS range. Built for ultimate challenges, the new BMW R 1250 GS and BMW R 1250 GS Adventure offers a perfect synthesis of road and off-road riding. It is your companion for cherishing life changing experiences, greater freedom and pure riding pleasure.”
