The BMW R 1300 GS is expected to be unveiled sometime next year, although an official timeline is yet to be announced.
BMW is said to be testing the next-generation iteration of its flagship adventure-tourer motorcycle offering. The upcoming BMW R1300 GS will get a number of updates, along with several new features and tech.
The BMW R 1300 GS is expected to feature a sharper beak at the front compared to the current R 1250 GS. The upcoming bike also features new LED headlights, a large adjustable windshield, LED tail lights and an electronic module at the front for the radar-based adaptive cruise control. The bike will also come with a larger TFT instrument cluster, with multiple ride modes and plenty of other electronic rider assist features as well.
Reports suggest that the new-gen adventure tourer will feature a telelever front and paralever rear suspension. Braking duties are handled by dual disc brakes at the front and a single disc at the rear, supported by dual-channel ABS. The road-going version of the R 1300 GS will come with alloy wheels, while the off-road version gets tubeless wire-spoke rims.
The new BMW R 1300 GS will get an updated version of the 1250 boxer engine. The bump in displacement is also said to translate to higher power figures. The engine on the current R 1250 GS produces 136 BHP and 146 Nm. The R 1300 GS will continue to feature a shaft drive as the current-gen motorcycle.
The BMW R 1300 GS is expected to be unveiled sometime next year, although an official timeline is yet to be announced. The Adv-tourer will also make its way to the Indian market soon after its international launch.
