BMW Motorrad spent the last year launching new models, including the S1000R roadster, the R1200RS boxer sport tourer, and the S1000XR Adventure Sport.

As these motorcycles are in the spotlight, BMW Motorrad  remains busy. But this didn’t slow the Bavarians from offering some aesthetic revisions on the others for 2016, along with some new equipment.

Highlighting the updates is the all-new 2016 BMW R1200GS TripleBlack, which offers just what the name implies – a fully-blacked-out version of the R1200GS adventure tourer.

Besides the R1200GS TripleBlack, a few other updates include the availability of ABS Pro and the all-new Dynamic Brake Light (European only as of this report) on six models.

Following is a breakdown of the 2016 BMW Motorcycle Updates:

2016 BMW R1200GS TripleBlack

The 2016 BMW R1200GS TripleBlack offers the world’s top-selling motorcycling in a virtually all-black finish.

The central fuel tank cover, fuel tank side panels and front mudguard in Black storm metallic together with black anodized fork slider tubes give the legendary travel enduro a strikingly masculine touch. Powerful technical accentuations are provided by the front and rear frame in Agate Grey in combination with the engine, gearbox and swinging arm.

The R1200GS TripleBlack special model is fitted with the cross-spoke wheels with black gloss rim base familiar from the R 1200 GS Adventure, previously available as a special equipment feature.

A new black-grey seat with striking “GS” application on passenger seat rounds off the strong appearance of the new R 1200 GS TripleBlack.
