Gear up for thrilling adventures with the all-new BMW R 1300 GS, arriving at dealerships in India by the end of April or early May. This feature-packed machine promises exceptional performance on both paved roads and rough terrains, making it a dream ride for motorcycle enthusiasts.

Striking Design and Improved Handling

The R 1300 GS boasts a sleek and modern design compared to its predecessor, the R 1250 GS.

Comfort and Control

The R 1300 GS prioritizes rider comfort with its ergonomic design, a hallmark of adventure motorcycles. The new sheet metal shell main frame offers increased space and stiffness, while the die-cast aluminum sub-frame further enhances rigidity and control, especially during off-road riding.

Powerful Engine and Upgraded Suspension

The centerpiece of the R 1300 GS is the new 1,300 cc liquid-cooled boxer-twin engine. This powerhouse generates 143.5 bhp and 149 Nm of peak torque, exceeding the R 1250 GS by a significant margin. BMW Motorrad proudly claims this to be their most powerful boxer engine yet. The suspension system receives an upgrade as well, featuring an EVO telelever unit in the front and a new EVO paralever unit at the rear. An optional dynamic suspension allows for on-the-go adjustments to damping and spring preload. This package also includes an innovative adaptive seat height that adjusts dynamically for enhanced comfort while riding slow or at a standstill.
