Wherever you are, get ready for it: whether taking a quick trip to the nearest mountains or setting off for a different continent to discover faraway new cultures. Range is not a problem with a tank capacity of 33 litres. Robustness? The G 1200 GS Adventure looks as if it had invented the term - and it certainly has defined it in the motorcycle world. This is partly due to the range of features which have become almost as legendary as the bike itself. On this machine you can take potholes with 20 mm more clearance than on the R 1200 GS. Perfect ergonomics, optimum gearing for every terrain.
