2013 BMW R 1200 GS Touring Edition Features and Benefits
• Enduro Automatic Stability Control (ASC) – the automatic stability control system limits the drive torque transferred from the engine as a function of the road conditions and therefore the coefficient of friction. Offers ‘rain’, ‘road’, ‘dynamic’, ‘enduro’ and ‘enduro pro’ riding modes.
• Dynamic Electronic Suspension Adjustment – the semi-active suspension system allows highly convenient adjustments to the suspension for every riding style and load. The characteristics the rider can select for suspension and damping provide an unparalleled range of tuning and preload settings for all road conditions.
• LED Headlight – an innovative safety feature with built-in daytime running light, helping riders to see and be seen.
• Preparation for GPS – allows riders to install and use the BMW Motorrad Navigator safety and conveniently via the handlebars.
• Chrome Plated Exhaust System – adds the crowning visual touch to the new GS.
• Heated Handlebar Grips - provide increased comfort but also fulfil a key safety function. After all, as every experienced motorcyclist knows, only warm hands can react fast.
• RDC Tyre Pressure Control - provides the rider with reliable information on the current tyre pressure, which is displayed on the motorcycles’ on-board computer.
•Cruise Control – for the first time, cruise control is now available on the R 1200 GS, offering additional cruising comfort and convenience on longer adventures.
