From off-road sport to the road

1978 to 1980:
In 1978, BMW Motorrad attracted attention with a predecessor to the first GS: The GS 80 takes in two gold medals at the International Six Days Enduro. The bike had been developed by an in-house team of developers without an official remit. But its success proved the engineers and mechanics right: their bike made it truly enjoyable to ride both off-road and on-road. It was released to the market in 1980 under a slightly different name, the BMW R 80 G/S.

Its rise begins

1980 to 1987:
With the GS, BMW Motorrad created the perfect synthesis of off-road and on-road driving: Regardless of surface type, riders have control over their bikes in every situation while also enjoying maximum comfort on long routes. The highlight is the monolever single-sided swinging arm, which is the first to be installed on a motorcycle worldwide. This reduces the weight and enables the rear wheel to be changed quickly. With the R 80 G/S, BMW Motorrad created the segment for large, comfortable travel enduros – a segment that it still dominates today.

The GS gains momentum: more displacement, more power

1987 to 1996:
The new top model, the R 100 GS, focuses on a lot of displacement: it is the most powerful and fastest enduro on the market. The paralever dual-pivot swinging arm on the rear wheel ensures effortless handling off-road and on-road. With its striking black and yellow paintwork, it is known as “Bumblebee”. The colour is still hugely popular among fans today and decorates this year's special “40 Years GS Edition" model.

A new chapter in travel enduros

1994 to 2003:
The GS is on its way to becoming an icon while continuously changing: in 1994, the first enduro with a four-valve boxer engine appears with the R 1100 GS. The bike is popular because it handles well off road and performs perfectly on long tours. In 1999, the R 1150 GS follows in its footsteps. The concept is purposefully further developed with touring in mind and, in 2002, adapted even more to the needs of long-distance travellers with the R 1150 GS Adventure – the Adventure series is born.

From one-cylinder to two-cylinder

2000 to 2008:
The very popular and novice-friendly “Funduro” models, the F 650 and F 650 ST, have their engines reworked at the beginning of the new millennium. Thanks to the water-cooled single-cylinder assembly, F 650 GS and F 650 GS Dakar riders have enough drive for everyday riding as well as that typical enduro feeling. In 2008, the F 650 GS and F 800 GS, both completely redesigned enduro models, are equipped with a liquid-cooled two-cylinder in-line engine. The means pure adventure, even in the mid-range segment.

From air-cooled to water-cooled boxer engine

2004 to 2017:
In 2004, BMW Motorrad re-released the R 1200 GS. The bike is given more displacement, power, and torque, making it even more dynamic on any terrain while weighing 30 kilograms less at the same time. A new era begins almost ten years later, when BMW Motorrad engineers equip the R 1200 GS with a water-cooled boxer engine – something that had never been done before. The bike also has a semi-active suspension with Dynamic ESA (electronic suspension adjustment), which takes handling and riding comfort to a new level.

In the following years, BMW Motorrad continued to build on the GS legend. The popular R 1250 GS appears with a redeveloped two-cylinder boxer engine. Thanks to its variable BMW ShiftCam camshaft control, it provides more power in all speed ranges and makes the GS even more effortless. In addition, the mid-range F 750 GS and F 850 GS models undergo constant development and make riding more enjoyable with their larger displacement and modified chassis.
