BMW has released details on its 2011 BMW R1200GS Triple Black, a limited edition GS that’s well…black. Showing us the Triple Black ahead of the bike’s official debut at the Milan EICMA show in two weeks time, the new GS is basically a combination of some black paint and BMW’s premium parts package for the R1200GS.

With sapphire black metallic paint, and murdered cross-spoke wheels, front forks, engine casings, the Triple Black is accented with asphalt grey metallic paint on the swingarm, rear sub-frame, and valve covers. BMW’s Premium Package includes Enduro Electronic Suspension Adjustment, heated grips, hand guards, anti-lock brakes, and pannier mounting points.

The 2011 BMW R1200GS Triple Black uses the same newly revised 110hp DOHC boxer twin-cylinder motor as the standard GS and GS Adventure models. Not exactly mind-blowing stuff, but it’s a good looking GS, which should help BMW sell some more units of one of the best selling motorcycles worldwide. Expect to see the new BMW R1200GS Triple Black available in the U.S. sometime in January 2011. Pricing is set at $18,385 MSRP.
