BMW UK: R1200GS Offer with Accessories


2012 BMW R1200GS

BMW’s class-leading adventure-sport motorcycle, the R 1200 GS, now comes with an amazing package of practical and performance-enhancing accessories worth £1,765 ($2700 USD) in the UK only.

UK Customers purchasing an R 1200 GS, including the Triple Black and Rallye special editions, between June 1 and Dec. 31 2012, will receive a complimentary Akrapovic Sport Silencer, Vario Panniers with inner bags, Large Tankbag and a Tinted Windshield.

This package of official BMW Motorrad Motorcycle Equipment further enhances the iconic R 1200 GS’s already impressive performance in many areas, including long distance comfort, practicality and aesthetic appeal.

Akrapovic Sport Silencer
Saving 4kg over the standard exhaust, this lightweight, road-legal titanium silencer makes the unique sound of the Boxer-twin BMW R 1200 GS even more distinctive and appealing. RRP £700.00 (inc VAT).

Vario Panniers with inner bags

Unique expandable panniers that can switch from a total of 50 to 68 litres of storage, simply by pulling a lever. The reduced capacity narrows the motorcycle’s width by 120mm, making filtering through traffic even easier. Removable fabric inner bags and locks matched to the ignition key add to the practicality. RRP £732.31(inc VAT).

Large Tank Bag

A waterproof, durable tank bag that is expandable from 12 to 17 litres. Includes a map pocket, a removable mounting system that can be rolled up and kept under the seat and a belt strap, allowing it to be worn around the waist. RRP £180.00 (inc VAT).

Tinted Windshield

This tinted, adjustable screen accentuates the overall sporty look of the R 1200 GS. RRP £153.00 (inc VAT).

Ian Furse (National Sales Manager for BMW Motorrad UK, says: “The addition of £1,765-worth of complimentary BMW Motorcycle Equipment and Accessories makes the class-leading R 1200 GS stand out even further among its competitors. With this offer, the BMW R 1200 GS will be better equipped and better looking than ever, as standard.

“Already hugely capable as a long-distance tourer, the addition of Vario Panniers with inner bags and the Large Tankbag add another level of practicality to the GS, while the Tinted Windshield and Akrapovic Sport Silencer make the R 1200 GS even more of a pleasure to ride, look at and listen to.”
