The Ultimate Adventurer: The 2021 BMW R 1250 GS Adventure
The BMW R 1250 GS Adventure is the ultimate adventure touring package in the 2021 BMW line-up. This European-made motorcycle is one of the most recognizable motorcycles on the market. It’s sharp, powerful, capable, and one of the best-selling motorcycles around. It’s like the standard R 1250 GS, but with a few practical extras that make it ideal for rugged riding, on-road or off.
Like other brawny BMW motorcycles, the R 1250 GS Adventure uses a 1,254 cc horizontally-opposed boxer-twin that produces an impressive 136 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque. In terms of specification, it’s the same as the R 1250 GS—but there are some key differences.
The most notable additions include adventure-focused practicalities. These include crash bars, a tough skid plate, spoked wheels, hand protectors, wider footrests, a larger fuel tank, and increased suspension travel.
For 2021, the R 1250 GS is available in four color options. Rally Style features Light White/Racing Blue Metallic/Racing Red. Ice Grey is grey with silver, black, and red accents. Triple Black features Black Storm Metallic, Black, and Agate Grey paintwork. Lastly, there is a special edition black and yellow design that celebrates 40 years of the GS brand designation.
The 2021 BMW R 1250 GS starts at $17,995 USD / $21,550 CAD
