Black to the power of three.


BMW Motorrad introduces the special model BMW R 1200 GS Triple Black.

Munich. Triple Black – the name of this new special model of the BMW R 1200 GS says it all. By offering the world’s bestselling motorcycle in a new, virtually pure black colour scheme BMW Motorrad will be making the wishes of many customers come true.

The tank and front wheel covers in sapphire black and the fork and engine in plain black serve to emphasise the masculine touch of this large touring enduro. Also the engineering is underscored by the metallic asphalt grey of the swinging arm, rear frame, and cylinder head covers.

The special model features the cross spoke wheels with glossy black rim base familiar as optional equipment for the R 1200 GS and standard equipment of the R 1200 GS Adventure.

The offer is completed with a new black seat with conspicuous GS moulding on the sides.

The R 1200 GS Triple Black special model can be ordered from BMW Motorrad dealers with immediate effect.

The new BMW R 1200 GS and its sister model, the R 1200 GS Adventure, have been on the market since the spring of 2010. The obvious hallmark on the revised models of these popular touring enduros is the new DOHC boxer engine familiar from the BMW HP2 Sport. For its new home in the R 1200 GS and the R 1200 GS Adventure it was specially revised and optimised.

Delivering 110 hp at 7750 rpm and a max torque of 120 Nm at 6000 rpm, the new GS models provide spontaneous dynamic response, powerful spurting ability, and high torque over the whole range of engine speeds, and again prove to be the touring enduro pioneers of riding dynamics.

Like their predecessors, the new R 1200 GS and R 1200 GS Adventure present a virtually perfect synthesis of off-road and on-road properties. In the established manner, outstanding and reliable performance is safeguarded by a torsionally rigid suspension, the front wheel cover with the unique BMW telelever, and the rear suspension with the BMW paralever.

The maximum possible safety is ensured even in critical situations by the extremely powerful brakes operating in conjunction with the optional BMW Motorrad integral ABS.

Designed for the specific needs of a touring enduro, the enduro ESA is also available as optional equipment ex works for the latest edition of the R 1200 GS and R 1200 GS Adventure. At the simple touch of a button, enduro ESA adjusts the suspension to the most varied riding and load conditions.
