BMW R 1200 GS Adventure
The BMW R 1200 GS Adventure has been named 2011 Overland Motorcycle of the Year by the staff of Expedition Portal and Overland Journal, a website and publication targeted toward environmentally responsible, worldwide vehicle-supported expedition and adventure travel.
A team of expedition travelers gave BMW’s best-selling long distance enduro the highest marks for its comfortable ergonomics, confidence-inspiring handling and braking, capacity and frame strength for fully loaded travel, excellent ESA suspension, fuel range and power supply.
“There is simply no other overland motorcycle that so perfectly executes the action of adventure travel than the BMW GS Adventure,” writes Scott Brady, publisher and chairman of Overland Journal and expeditionportal.com, who has spent the past few decades exploring the world as a professional adventure driver and product field tester.
