for the New BMW R 1200 GS Adventure:

Dream Ship for Real Adventurers Among large capacity adventure bikes, the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure is regarded as an icon and is the dream ship of many adventure riders.

Following the explosive launch of the liquid cooled R 1200 GS at the start of the season, BMW presented the eagerly awaited Adventure model with its new engine and drive concept at the EICMA in Milan. Based on a rich wealth of experience gained from hundreds of thousands of kilometres of travel experience, Touratech presents the new R 1200 GS Adventure in a full long-distance trim.

There is unlikely to be another company that is so deeply involved in the topic of long-distance travels and adventure riding as Touratech.

This know-how is used for developing new accessories and enables Touratech to optimize even ultimate long-distance bikes such as the new Adventure model. As development partner of BMW Motorrad, Touratech founder Herbert Schwarz took the new dream ship for adventurers on its maiden voyage through South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. And, of course, the specifically developed Touratech products were part of this intensive test.

Touratech offers a comprehensive range of accessories for the new R 1200 GS Adventure. These of course include ZEGA Pro and ZEGA Pro2 panniers and pannier racks, comfort and sports seats in various designs and heights, the highly robust engine guard "Expedition" (also in XL!), a radiator guard which protects the sensitive ribs against damage, manifold -, cardan -, frame - and ABS sensor protection, folding brake levers and rearview mirrors, headlight protectors and hand guards as well as spoilers for the original hand protectors, etc.

Handlebar risers by 15 mm and a higher windscreen provide greater comfort, and relocating the cardan ventilation is an absolute must on long tours. There will also be a custom-made crash bar extension for the Adventure as well as a luggage rack extension. Be it soft pack solutions, GPS bracket adapters or "Works" foot rests - the accessory range for the new BMW R 1200 GS Adventure is available at and will be listed in the new Touratech catalogue available as from 10. January 2014.
