The R 1200 GS reputation and spec.

Since the GS launched in 1980, it has defined and led the adventure touring market. The GS has proved to be the trusty steed on many a motorcycle adventure. The R1200 GS is powered by BMW’s liquid cooled boxer, twin cylinder engine, which develops 125bhp at 7,750 rpm. Cooling is increased by the cylinder design, which channels airflow vertically around the case. Power is shaft driven to the back wheel via the six-speed gearbox. ABS braking is fitted as standard on all BMWs.
