Rendered: 2012 BMW R1200GS

Our friend Luca Bar did these renders for Infomotori that shed some light on what the 2012 BMW R1200GS could look like once the German manufacturer takes the duct tape and camouflage off the water-cooled boxer-twin adventure bike. With emission standards putting increased pressure on air-cooled motors, and the adventure bike segment becoming more competitive, BMW has finally had to tinker with the good thing it has going, updating the big boy GS to a water-cooled power plant for the 2012 model year.

With spy shots of the 2012 BMW R1200GS already hitting the interwebs, we have at least a basic understanding of what the new R1200GS will look like, and it would seem that BMW hasn’t moved too far from its best-selling design. As such, Bar had plenty to work from in the spy photos and current GS to create a series of renders that show what the new GS could look like at its unveiling later this year. As always it is top-notch work, check out Luca’s work after the jump.

    Still looking like something only it’s Father or Mother could love (Pretty much like every other ADV Bike out there, eh ?)

    Blech, the only good looking boxer is the R (Though the R isn’t exactly a knockout, it has a certain plain jane charm), the RT looks kind of good in cop trim, but the beaked one looks like a vulture that got its wings clipped.
