Desierto IV: The Spirit of Adventure

Posted on


Whether on the roof of the world or in deepest Africa, few products embody the spirit of adventure so much as Touratech Desierto fairings, which have proven themselves time and again on extended journeys across all continents over the last years.

Touratech is starting a new chapter in this success story with Desierto IV for the BMW R 1200 GS / Adventure (LC), reinterpreting the concept of distinctive looks and maximum ride comfort.

The characteristic Desierto sweep above the headlight is striking at first glance, as are the distinctive wedge-shaped side sections creating a concordant link between fairing and tank. The dynamic styling emphasises the agile nature of the R 1200 GS (LC), lending a new aesthetic dimension to the familiar Desierto look. The side sections are available in black, gray or white.

The windscreen itself is at a steeper angle than the original, which gives a superior ride feel, enhances the sense of space, and at the same time optimises wind protection without adding turbulence at helmet level. Since the standard adjustment capabilities are retained, the height and angle of the windscreen can be modified as required while riding.

In response to customer requests, Touratech offers four different windscreens for the Desierto IV: a small version that is visibly lower than the original GS screen, provides greater ventilation and is intended for more sporty riding, and a significantly higher screen for touring and travelling. Both are available in a clear and a tinted version.
