The new BMW R 1250 GS gains more engine capacity, growing from 1170cc to 1254cc, via both a longer stroke and an enlarged bore, and gains 9 per cent more power along with 14 per cent more torque.
The other big news is the move to what BMW are calling ‘Shiftcam Technology. This is, essentially, variable valve timing of the inlet cam. The inlet cam has two sets of lobes, one set with shallow lift and modest duration, for great torque, reduced emissions and improved economy. While the second set of lobes are of a much more wild duration and lift, which promises a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde character to the new Boxer.
The new BMW R 1250 GS now has the equipment feature Connectivity as standard including a 6.5-inch full-colour TFT screen. In conjunction with the standard BMW Motorrad Multi-Controller, this means the rider can access vehicle and connectivity functions particularly swiftly and conveniently.
