The new BMW R 1200 GS also expresses its sharper character and its universal talents with a new colour concept comprising four different colours for selected components.
As a travel enduro for highly active riding and featuring innovative technology, its colouring deliberately includes contrasts and a dynamic , very light effect. The four main colours to choose from for the body – Alpine White, Racing Red, Blue Fire and Thunder Grey Metallic – provide a fascinating contrast with the silver engine housing and frame.
While Racing Red highlights the dynamic, sporty character of the new BMW R 1200 GS, Blue Fire gives it a markedly modern appearance. Alpine White as a BMW Motorrad brand colour highlights the traditional enduro genes of the new BMW R 1200 GS. Here BMW Motorrad especially emphasises the solid, masculine character of the GS as well as its off-road aspirations. Meanwhile Thunder Grey Metallic gives the new BMW R 1200 GS a sense of classic understatement with a striking presence and elegance.
The combination of various metal finishes underscores the sophisticated, innovative technology of the new GS.
The new BMW R 1200 GS will go on sale in South Africa in the first quarter of 2013. Pricing and local specs will be confirmed in due course.
