BMW has revealed a new look for the ever-popular R 1250 GS and R 1250 GS Adventure, as well as introducing a number of new standard and optional additions designed to further the touring credentials of the Bavarian manufacturer’s flagship adventure bikes.
BMW R 1250 GS 2021: Not just a facelift
The new models have been given a lick of paint, with the lineup now featuring a black and yellow livery that pays homage to the iconic R 100 GS, something we’ve previously seen on BMW’s mid-capacity adventure bikes.
BMW has also equipped the big GS with the following as standard: Integral ABS Pro (BMW’s advanced cornering ABS), Dynamic Traction Control, and a new Eco riding mode, designed to maximise fuel efficiency when riding.
In addition, a number of optional extras have been added to further the big adventure bike’s touring pedigree, including optional heated seats for both the rider and pillion, full-LED adaptive cornering headlights (something we missed on the 2019 model of the bike), and Hill Start Control Pro which BMW says offers a noticeable improvement on starts in all conditions over their Hill Start Control, which is already included as standard on all models.
