BMW Motorrad India has officially launched the 2019 BMW R 1250 GS line-up in the country. There are four variants with the regular version coming at INR 16.85 lakhs (ex-showroom) while the top-end R 1250 GS Adventure Pro is priced at INR 21.95 lakhs (ex-showroom). The bikes will be imported to the country as CBUs (Completely Built Unit) and bookings have already started across BMW Motorrad dealerships for an initial payment of INR 5 lakh.
The President, BMW Group India, Dr. Hans-Christian Baertels, stated that the new R 1250 GS offers ample riding fulfilment and freedom for buyers and can take on everything from rough terrain to gravel tracks. There is a bigger displacement engine which is the biggest update and so are the blacked out elements including the brake callipers, cross-spoke wheels and main frame. There are new injectors along with jet cooling for the piston undersides for efficient running.
Some other updates include a 6.5 inch TFT display unit for the instrument cluster which is also backed by smartphone connectivity through Bluetooth. There is a semi-active electronic suspension setup in tandem with automatic load compensation. Buyers will also be able to choose from a Sports suspension package.
