The right mode for every adventure

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.

The boxer engine of the R 1250 GS fascinates from the very first glance. You can feel its character in every engine speed range, because it offers you impressive performance with more smoothness at low rotational speeds. The variable BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control ensures more powerful torque development over the entire engine speed range, providing greater control in every riding situation. This means: More displacement and more performance with higher efficiency and therefore power whenever you need it. The strong pull with fewer gear changes gives you more freedom. This way you feel the boxer’s energy even more directly.
