  • BMW Motorrad Connectivity provides motorcyclists with an innovative solution for daily navigation, using multimedia and riding-related information with the clearest layout and intuitive operations: connecting the motorcycle, smartphone and helmet via Bluetooth results in completely new possibilities. The multi-controller ensures that the functions are easy to operate at all times. The traditional electronic instrument cluster gives way to a large, clear TFT display, which gives the rider constant access to navigation, phone calls, media and additional vehicle information as well as information that was previously displayed, such as speed and revs. On top of this, there are more additional functions available with the free BMW Motorrad Connected App. Connectivity gives motorcyclists the opportunity to focus on what really matters once again: the streets waiting to be discovered.

  • The correct mode can be set with just one press of the button or else adapted to the driver in the Pro driving modes - there's no need for breaks on adventures! Simply by switching between the riding modes, you can react in a matter of seconds to varying terrain; brake intervention, attuning the suspension elements, and also the electronic control systems ABS Pro and DTC as well as the engine characteristics via the throttle response. The "Dynamic Pro" riding mode which can be activated with the aid of the coding plug ensures a generally more firmly attuned motorcycle for a sporty ride on the road. Switching to "Enduro Pro" ensures perfect traction on loose surfaces. A soft throttle response and restrained control intervention of the Enduro ASC make riding on loose terrain a whole new experience. In addition, the Pro riding mode offers Hill Start Control HSC, by means of which the rear wheel brake can be held on with the aid of the handbrake lever.

  • The R 1200 GS Adventure can now also optionally be fitted with the latest generation of Dynamic ESA. With automatic damping adjustment system and riding position compensation, the ride comfort and ride stability are once again increased. Completely without shifting, the best traction is always achieved on all road surfaces whilst at the same time ensuring optimal ride stability. The expanded sensor system that adapts the motorcycle to countless ride conditions takes care of this. The automatic adjustment of the chassis to the load ensures impressive light handling and maintains the accuracy of the R 1200 GS Adventure.
