The New 2013 R1200 GS by BMW

View all 19 Photos

Twice the exhilaration and double the fun, the 2013 version of BMW’s R1200 GS dual-sport motorcycle offers a combination of style and performance. The bike, manufactured in Berlin, Germany, is in its ninth year of production and has the accoutrements to prove its prowess and new-and-improved build. The 2013 edition of the bike features an engine redesign, which now has a vertical coolant channel system that uses glycol-water instead of standard oil. Sleek and sporty defines the character, dictated by silver and black with a colorful accent across the top of the gas tank. A modern design for the exhaust pipe and dashboard complete the new look. As expected, there are multiple riding modes – five, to be exact – and each utilizes a custom electronic throttle actuator and dynamic update for the Automatic Stability Control and ABS. The front wheel of the bike has been reduced to a 19-inch diameter, reflective of the motorcycle’s lighter build and higher brake horsepower: 125 bhp at 7700 rpm.
