2012 BMW Wallpaper

For 2012, BMW releases a limited-edition R1200GS Rallye in the spirit of the Bavarian motorcycle manufacturer’s GS bikes that take on rallies such as Dakar.

Clad in Alpine White colors with a Magma Red frame, the R 1200 GS is powered by a 110-horspower Air/oil-cooled flat twin Boxer 4-stroke engine. This proven-reliable motor features two camshafts and four radially aligned valves per cylinder, plus a central balancer shaft.

Taking care of suspension duties on the 2012 R1200GS Rallye is a Motorrad Telelever system up front with stanchion diameter 41 mm, central spring strut that feature spring preload with 5-position mechanical adjustment.

Out back the R 1200 GS features a cast aluminum single-sided swing arm with Motorrad Paralever with WAD strut (travel-related damping).

BMW says: “Extended tours, long distance travels, and even journeys to the remote places of our planet run like a thread through the history of BMW GS, just like spectacular adventure rallies and magnificent sporting success. All of this now finds the ultimate testimony in the special model R 1200 GS Rallye from BMW Motorrad.”
