BMW R 1200 GS 2013: Set out again… for 20 years!

The regeneration of the model BMW R 1200GS 2013’s headlight has always been highly strategic for the manufacturer. Because everyone here, speaks about brand image, trade, and technical renewal but not aim for a motor bike for a whole ranks resting on this new technology.

It is here once again the case for BMW which reveals neither more nor less than replacing it with the current reference of the trails “premium” in Europe. By the same occasion, it appears as a very new technical platform which one discovers today, a technology which will be taken again on future the GT (BMW R1200RT) and roadster (R1200R).

Thus, between those which expected this new announced model BMW R 1200 GS 2013 and those which provided to renew their current GS, the fish pond of potential customers is so important for this motor bike that BMW cannot allow the least flunked.

Especially when it is known that the current base of the BMW R 1200 GS 2013, the BMW R1100GS, goes up it with… 1994! In short, the challenge being faced is of its size and in cranking up it in best of the ways, the Germans did not go there with the back of the spoon!

The flat… with fleet!

First fundamental alteration in looks was seen as mentioned beforehand in news for the BMW R 1200 GS 2013. Thus, for the New Year the very recognizable line, since several generations will be evolved.

This time BMW R 1200 GS 2013 seemed that they had constructed “flees” forwards, as if the various front elements had been puffed up by a ventilator since the back of the motor bike.

The duck nozzle and the bubble are differently more “techno” than in the past; the new scoops are placed at the base of the tank making their appearance, and due: they dissimulate the small radiators of water cooling of new the flat twin BMW of BMW R 1200 GS 2013! To be completely exact, we must specify that the air does not continue any less to also cool the German flat twin, which explains the presence of generous wings on the cylinders and cylinder heads.

In short, the technical inheritance is except, the general pace of new the flat twin does not betray of anything its origins not more than its center of gravity, while respecting the standards for antipollution increasingly being more drastic.

This air/water heat sink mixed appeared however not the only innovation present in the engine of this BMW R 1200 GS 2013, far from there. The admission brings also its stone to the building, with its vertical conduits from now on.

Thus finished the large pipes butting against the ankles, by redrawing the cylinder heads completely and by rectifying the conduits, BMW supports the filling of the engine for BMW R 1200 GS 2013 and there still its output.

Brief details include mostly the 101 mm of boring X 73 mm of race, for a cubic capacity of 1,170 Cm3, power of the BMW R 1200 GS 2013 reached 125 horses with 7,700 tr/min for a couple of 12.5 daN.m with 6,500 tr/min (against 110 horses with 7,750 tr/min for a couple of 12 daN.m with 6,000 tr/min for the model 2012). Not bad, even if competition announces better on this point, however not most important to cut the road, even to two.

Not one but of the unthinkable innovations on a boxer BMW there is little…

This time in the BMW R 1200 GS 2013, there exits the dry single-plate clutch; its substitute aligns from now on six discs, bathing directly in oil and integrating an anti function dribbles! It is not a revolution, but being first on a flat twin BMW, which touches also transmission shafting with the aft wheel since it passes on the left.

Without surprised – when one knows what not was presented by the very front competition– electronics posts also complete on the BMW R1200GS 2013, New on a driving boxer, the new electronic accelerator of type “wrinkles by wire” adds in option 5 modes of control involving Rain, Road, Dynamic, Endure and Endure Pro, which will thus modify the behavior of the engine on three levels of power. An electronic speed regulator could be grafted in as an option.

The anti-skid ASC is an option available in BMW R 1200 GS 2013, but ABS will be delivered of series. Another innovation – and not the least one – This year in 2013 is that the BMW R1200GS will be able to receive a suspension ESA, but this active semi time (ESA dynamic).

This umpteenth evolution of the concept Electronic Adjustment Suspension from BMW receives new sensors of clearances and valves with electric piloting to adapt into the instantaneous laws of damping to the conditions recon trees… while being rolled.

Like BMW S 1000 RR HP4, even the last Ducati Multistate 1200 and its Skyhook suspensions -, BMW R1200GS 2013 thus promises to offer a behavior even more effective and the feature of transparency for its rider. One is in a hurry to confirm that under test.

More premium that never

Deeply reconsidered as one can see it, BMW R 1200 GS 2013 is made of its new tubular steel framework of parametric provision (with bolted back loop). Of course, this is impossible to avoid Telemeter suspensions and Para lever Evo even they were also re-examined.

The rims use for the first time with the new specific dimensions while braking receives clamps with radial fixing. BMW R 1200 GS 2013 benefited from it to add – what was missed a little… – some practical equipment, like a diurnal dipped headlight with led’s as an option, or a unit saddles pilot/momentary with adjustment in slope and in-depth.

The bubble preserves its manual adjustment and protects the table again. It will be easy to embed there the GPS whose navigation will be ensured by the serrated roller which is inspired by equips in previous BMW K1600 GT/GTL.

The BMW R1200GS thus becomes bourgeois in 2013… and with no surprise, all these changes influence on its weight, which is 238 kg in functioning order against 229 kg for BMW R 1200 GS model 2012.

At all events, such a vice of work and sophistication illustrates without turning the ambitions of BMW on its model headlight only but also on the market of the motor bikes premium.

These top-of-the-range models are sold indeed better and better, whereas the technology deployed by BMW on its new BMW R1200GS 2013 promises to facilitate piloting by very demanding but inevitably not tested customers of it.

In addition to this package a layer of dreamed, by means of splendid images of promotion on African tracks, and you undoubtedly hold there one of the next stars of the European market, provided that it holds the high sugar-coated pill with a competition invigorated.

Because between very recent Triumph Tiger 1200, Honda Cross tourer, Ducati Multistate and other KTM 1190 adventure, BMW R 1200 GS 2013 is not from now on any more alone in its kingdom.
