BMW Motorrad India has launched the 2021 BMW R 1250 GS and R 1250 GS Adventure in India. BMW Motorrad has consistently produced high-quality motorcycles known for their performance, reliability, and innovative features. That’s finally changed now that BMW Motorrad has officially unveiled the biggest GS ever for the first time. Thanks to millions of spy shots and numerous leaks, the BMW R 1300 GS is one of the most anticipated bikes among motorcycle lovers.
Still, the Bavarian giant has continued teasing the motorcycle. We got confirmation of the launch date in June when the company celebrated the production of its one millionth Boxer-powered GS. That’s finally changed now, as BMW Motorcycles has officially teased the biggest GS ever for the first time.
The Official Teaser Shows The BMW R 1300 GS in Action
The teaser shows the new BMW R 1300 GS doing everything you’d want, like tackling off-road. Their main objective is to provide the desired pleasure to the riders. Most of the bike is hidden under the splash, but we can still see some details. For example, the 1300 looks slimmer than the current R 1250 GS. The tip of the beak is distinct and opposite. A closer look reveals a metallic boomerang-shaped side panel with BMW’s new cutout GS logo.
Other details we know about, as seen in the teaser but not seen here. It includes handguard-mounted turn signals and a three-in-one tail light setup reminiscent of the BMW S 1000 RR. Offer new cast alloy wheels, an integrated LED headlight (still a single-piece unit), and a compact new exhaust – all of which add to the slimmed-down aesthetic. Finally, given the spoke wheels and handguards, we believe the GS in the teaser is either the Rally or the GS Trophy edition. Full details of the R 1300 GS will be revealed on September 28, 2023.
BMW R 1300 Engine
The all-new BMW R 1300 is powered by a 1,300cc boxer engine that produces 143.5bhp of maximum power and 110 peak output. Add to this the revised power delivery (lower in revs) You’re also looking at a top speed of 140 mph, four more than the outgoing model. No changes to BMW’s shift and air/oil-cooling setup.
The R 1300 features an all-new steel frame and cast alloy subframe instead of the tubular chassis (a core element of the GS model). This also impacts the length and width, as the new GS is longer and broader than the 1250. However, you will see little change in the suspension and braking setup.
