2022 BMW R 1250 GS

The 2022 BMW R 1250 GS: Perfect for Light OffRoad Adventuring.

The BMW R 1250 GS has been an iconic European bike for four decades and keeps inspiring with new features. It has maximum visibility thanks to a new LED adaptive headlight. With the help of supplementary features like seat heating and the seven riding modes, you can confidently handle any driving circumstance.

The boxer engine enables you to experience remarkable performance and increased smoothness at low rotational speeds. Greater control in any riding circumstance is made possible by the variable BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control, which enables more potent torque development over the whole engine speed range.

There are many choices within the BMW Adventure lineup, a standard GS is more tuned towards on-pavement riding with the ability for light offroad, and the Adventure is aimed at more serious off-road challenges. For the 2022 model year, BMW offers a wide range of configurations including the 40th Anniversary Editions.

4 Color choices for the 2022 BMW R 1250 GS: Light White, Style Rally Package, Style Triple Black, and the 40 Years GS Edition.

The 2022 BMW R 1250 GS starts at $17,995 USD / $21,795 CAD.

2022 BMW R 1250 GS Features

The right mode for every adventure

Tarmacked roads, wet roads or unpaved gravel roads: The seven riding modes of the R 1250 GS ensure optimum grip and superior handling at all times. When the vehicle is stationary, you can pre-select up to four riding modes individually in the menu, which you can then select quickly and conveniently during the journey using the riding mode button. The new dynamic engine brake control provides more stability and easy control of the bike in the Pro riding modes; it prevents the rear wheel from slipping or jerking. And in the new standard ECO Mode, you get the maximum range from every tank of fuel.

See and be seen

The perfect illumination for every curve: The adaptive headlights switch on automatically when the vehicle is tilted, providing optimum illumination of bends depending on gradient and payload – a significant plus in terms of safety and comfort. The multifunctional rear LED flashing turn indicators ensure an eye-catching appearance and even greater visibility.
