2011 BMW R1200GS
MSRP $14,990

What a motorcycle. The BMW R1200GS for some people it’s a universal tool which practically never fails them – whether on a local run, the daily journey to work or weekend trips with or without gravel passages. For others it’s a way of life – just the right machine for every tour, whether a one-week trip for two into local motorcycling territory or fulfilling the dream of a lifetime thousands of miles away from home. The “GS” is not just able to handle everything, it is actually built to do so. And in this synthesis of easy handling, supreme touring suitability, off-road potential and comfort for rider and pillion passenger, there’s simply no other motorcycle which does it better. That’s not just what we think: it’s the result of independent tests worldwide.
