Your elegant look.

Your elegant look.

The style for GS enthusiasts who like to be out and about with their GS and who want to have a confident appearance when doing so. Combined with the dynamic package, this GS becomes a true alpine racer and street sprinter. And in conjunction with touring extras, the R 1200 GS becomes the ideal all-round tourer, for which no tour is too long.

The Iced Chocolate metallic paintwork of the front wheel spray guard and the tank cover are among the visual highlights of the Exclusive style. In addition, the GS lettering is proudly displayed on the tank. Gold brake callipers are in perfect harmony with the main frame in achat grey and the drivetrain in black. The consistent overall appearance is rounded off with character by the optional comfort rider's seat.

Exclusive style – road trip.

Rallye Style

Pure offroad.

Pure offroad.

Uncompromising off-road optimization makes this style stand out – perfect for all ambitious riders who are on the move with the GS dynamic. This becomes apparent upon first glance, because even the standard equipment captivates this style with numerous well thought out and functional details. And combined with the diverse range of off-road accessories, the GS becomes an off-road machine which can be stopped by nothing.

The Rallye style is a highlight on any terrain – both visually and functionally. The sports windscreen ensures an unimpeded view and freedom of movement, the Adventure footrests ensure improved purchase when off-road. The rallye seat bench rounds off the riding ergonomics. The front side panel and the tank cover in Lupin blue metallic come into the foreground visually. The tank embellishes the GS lettering in the Rallye style. The radiator cowl is made out of stainless steel, and radiator has a protective grille. The main frame is displayed in Cordo blue and is protected from damage in offroad use by a plastic cover. The golden brake callipers add a harmonious contrast. Black cross-spoke wheels perfectly round off the Rallye style.

  • Touring package
    Touring package: boundless.

    The touring package is designed for riders who savour every single kilometre over asphalt or rough tracks and who would gladly remain in the saddle of their R 1200 GS forever.

    • Hand protectors
    • Grip heating
    • RDC

  • Take to the road with the Exclusive style. Asphalt and tar are the surfaces on which the GS moves. With the right tyres, you can swing it round the bends with ease. The right rubber is how you ensure optimized grip to the road.

  • The optimal studded tyres in the Rallye style demonstrate all the right profiles. They plough through sand or other demanding surfaces with ease. And keep the ground firmly gripped even at extreme angles. The black spoke wheels match this nicely. These tyres will take you to lands unknown.
