2013 BMW R1200GS Wallpaper

Although the US specs weren’t released, BMW Europe unveiled its totally revamped 2013 R1200GS earlier this month.

As it enters its ninth year in production, BMW’s adventure tourer receives some major revisions, including the new 1170cc air/water-cooled boxer engine, which produces 125 horsepower at 7700 rpm, up 15 horsepower from the air-cooled 1170cc engine of 2012.

Besides the enhanced power, the European-specific R1200GS also had some weight shaved, and arrives in 2013 with a dry weight of 525 lbs. Other big changes include the switch to 120/70 R 19 front front tire and a 170/60 R17 rear tire (compared to 180/90 R 19 and 150/70 R17 on previous models), revised styling and a new instrument cluster, to name a few.
