We have known for some time now that BMW was working on a successor to its wildly popular BMW R1200GS motorcycle. Expected to be a water-cooled boxer-twin, the new GS is an incredibly important machine for the German brand, and BMW is wasting no time hyping its unveiling. Set to break cover in just over a month at the INTERMOT show in Cologne, our wait to see the next iteration of the GS line is now almost at an end.
While the new GS will be the star of the show, INTERMOT will also be our first chance at seeing the BMW F700GS and BMW HP4, the suped-up S1000RR with semi-active suspension. With its air-cooled design an important feature of the current GS, it will be interesting to see the response from adventure riders when details of BMW’s new bike come to fruition. Will the GS continue to define the adventure-touring segment, or have zie Germans strayed too far from the winning formula?
Time will tell of course, but stay tuned October 2nd for full-details on the new BMW GS. We will of course be working to bring those details to you sooner, if possible.
