This eagerly awaited bike boasts a host of exciting features and improvements, making it a top contender in the adventure touring segment.
A Robust Frame Redefining Durability
One of the standout features of the new R 1300 GS is its advanced steel sheet-metal frame. Not only is it sturdier than its predecessor, but it’s also more compact.

The high-tech digital instrument console keeps you informed about all aspects of your ride.
Revamped Suspension and Adaptive Features
BMW has not only improved the frame and aesthetics but also revamped the bike’s suspension setup. The front features an EVO Telelever suspension, while the rear employs a para-lever setup. Dynamic Suspension Adjustment is also on offer, ensuring that damping and preload adapt seamlessly to your terrain and riding style. Furthermore, the bike includes an adaptive seat height function, automatically adjusting the saddle height when navigating slowly or at a standstill.
Under the hood, the 2024 R 1300 GS is equipped with a formidable 1,300cc twin-cylinder boxer engine. It delivers an impressive 143.5 bhp at 7,750 rpm and a robust 149 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. This powerhouse incorporates BMW’s cutting-edge ShiftCam technology and pairs seamlessly with a 6-speed gearbox, ensuring a thrilling riding experience.
