2017 BMW R1200RS Adventure Review

 

2017 BMW R1200RS Adventure on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

 

Embark on a Great Adventure…

 

In addition to the technical changes described above, the instrument panel of the R 1200 GS Adventure features a revised design. As of model year 2017, the colour Ocean Blue metallic matt is no longer available for the R 1200 GS Adventure.

 

 

New BMW R 1200 GS Adventure “Triple Black” special model.

 

“Triple Black” – this special version of the BMW R 1200 GS has established its own tradition and the name once again says it all. BMW Motorrad is responding to a wish expressed by many customers by bringing out this impressive travel enduro in a virtually all-black finish.

 

The central fuel tank cover, storage compartment lid and front mudguard in Blackstorm metallic together with fuel tank side panels in Dark Slate metallic give the legendary travel enduro a strikingly masculine look. Powerful technical accentuations are provided by the front and rear frame in Agate Grey in combination with the black engine, gearbox and swinging arm.

 

A new black seat with striking GS embossment on the passenger section rounds off the striking appearance of the new R 1200 GS “Triple Black”.

 

The price of the new BMW R 1200 GS Adventure “Triple Black” in Germany is EUR 16,830.- incl. 19% VAT (RRP).
