Sport touring aboard a purpose-built European bike shows just how refined going fast in comfort can actually be.

It is quite simple, add items to the standard model, or just add the Premium package that likely already contains exactly what you really want.
The Premium package includes the semi-active electronically adjusted suspension, cruise control, heated grips, prep for the touring bags, and all the riding aids and modes that enhance the riding experience.

2022 BMW R 1250 GS Features
Go relaxed into unknown terrain
The comfortable ergonomics and seating position of the R 1250 GS Adventure offer outstanding vision and let you control the bike easily. As the handlebars can be raised by up to 30 mm, you can ride comfortably and confidently even as a tall rider or standing up while off-road. In addition, the wide range of seat heights from 790 to 910 mm and the extensive selection of seats will help you find the right R 1250 GS Adventure for you. And the seat heating system ensures that you and your passenger enjoy every tour even more.
LED lighting technology
More radiance, visibility and prominence: The full-LED swiveling headlights and adaptive headlights help improve illumination and constant range – to the side, up and down. Depending on the ground gradient, payload and inclination in curves.
This way, the light is with you wherever you ride. The LED turn signals with Cruising Light option provide an eye-catching appearance with constantly dimmed lighting at the front. While at the rear, the multifunctional LED indicators increase passive safety. Further highlights: the Welcome and Goodbye function as well as the driving lights, which can be activated when the ignition is switched off – very practical when maneuvering in the dark.
Long range with the 7.9 gallon tank
When in beautiful surroundings, you won’t want to cut your journey short: With a maximum range of over 372 miles, you can relax and be on the road a little longer.
Comfortable handlebar risers
This is particularly beneficial for the taller drivers. But also when riding off-road or as an ambitious enduro rider, you have more control and even more fun with the handlebars mounted 30 mm higher.
This way, every tour can easily be a little longer: The multi-level seat heating provides the rider and passenger more comfort and makes them want to stay out longer.
Adaptive headlight with LED swiveling headlight
You get more out of every mile if you can see better. That’s why the 1250 GS Adventure illuminates your path consistently and homogeneously. Even on dynamic curves.
Ride Modes Pro and ECO Mode
Every terrain is worth trying out: The Ride Modes Pro, which have been extended to up to seven with new dynamic engine brake control, ensure optimum control on any terrain. The standard ECO Mode gets more range out of every tank of fuel: for relaxed longer trips.
DTC and ABS Pro in series
The nicest thing about adventure is you never know how you’ll reach your destination. With ABS Pro and DTC, you are ideally prepared for any surface. Both when braking or if surface grip suddenly changes.
