Adding the weight of your motorcycle camping gear won’t put a damper on your fun. So go ahead and bring the bigger 4-person tent and maybe a couple of comfort items because this bike can haul it all as far into the backcountry as you want to go.
And while BMW didn’t change much for their 2020 line it’s because they didn’t need to. In fact, the only difference is you can order both gold or black cross-spoke wheels for any color or style. Their 2019 R1250GS Adventure was an impressive bike and they simply rolled into the new year with their already impressive design.
Equipped with a suspension system that boasts a BMW Telelever and central spring strut in the front, and a single-sided swingarm with a BMW Paralever in the rear, you can take this bike even on the roughest dirt roads mountain trails. A must if you like to do your motorcycle camping far off the beaten path.
And if you’re looking to hit the open road for hours on end, the R1250GS Adventure comes with a Bluetooth enabled 6.5-inch TFT display. From phone calls and music to navigation and rpm’s the information is easily accessible and usable.
Sticking with the style of other top-end bikes, all the lights are LED. Not only does this give the bike a sportier look, but it improves visibility as well. And in case you need to stop on a dime the 4-piston calipers with 305 mm disc brakes in the front and 276 mm disc brakes with a dual-piston caliper in the rear have you more than covered.
BMW made safety a top priority when designing this bike so you can climb on knowing that you’ll be able to climb back off in one-piece. Whether you’re the one going for a ride or watching your loved one head off you can have peace of mind when they hit the pavement.
