This new BMW bike gets power from a larger 1300 cc boxer twin engine.
It boasts a new steel frame with an aluminum subframe.
It enjoys 4 standard riding modes coupled with 3 optional pro package riding modes.
With the official debut of the much-awaited new BMW R 1300 GS, BMW Motorrad, the well-known German motorcycle maker, has once again lifted the standard in the adventurous touring category. For adventure enthusiasts throughout the world, this new model claims to give a riding experience that is even more exhilarating and cutting-edge. The R 1300 GS builds on the tradition of the R 80 G/S, which pioneered the touring enduro niche more than 40 years ago and is packed with ground-breaking features, gear, technology, and comfort that elevate expedition motorcycling to a whole new level.
Beginning with the base, the new G 1300 GS has an entirely novel steel sheet-metal structure that, in the company's opinion, enables enhanced stiffness while being more compact. The bolt-on subframe, however, has been replaced by a rigid, shorter, and slimmer die-cast aluminum section.
New BMW R 1300 GS Engine and Power Details
The larger boxer twin, which now has a displacement of 1300cc and is smaller overall in dimension than the previous mill, is bolted to that chassis. The engine is the most potent boxer engine produced by BMW to date and is rated to produce 143.5 bhp at 7,750 rpm and 149 Nm at 6500 rpm. The motor is more fuel-efficient, has greater torque under heavy load, and is smoother when cruising thanks to its larger bore and longer stroke, bigger valves, and redesigned cams that include BMW's ShiftCam technology. The 6-speed gearbox's new location beneath the crankshaft also helps the bike's weight be reduced, the transmission shaft is shorter, and the bulk is situated nearer the center of gravity. Currently, the motorcycle weighs 12 pounds less than the previous available generation.
New BMW R 1300 GS Specs
In terms of the extensive utility list, the new BMW R 1300 GS has the newest technologies to improve convenience and safety. Adaptive cruise control, an enhanced version of BMW's Dynamic ESA, ride height adjustment, a 6.5-inch full-color TFT display jam-packed with keyless ignition, integrated functions and information, four standard riding modes - Rain, Road, Eco, and Enduro - as well as three optional Pro customizable riding modes - Dynamic, Dynamic Pro, and
Enduro Pro - are now included with the motorcycle.
The exterior layout of the new BMW R 1300 GS combines contemporary elegance with the raw allure of an adventure tourer before getting into the technical details. It now has a flatter fuel tank made of aluminum, a split-seat structure that can be customized, and a redesigned headlight with an X-shaped matrix LED and four LED DRLs. Overall, the motorbike's design has improved to make riding an adventure motorcycle even more enjoyable. A sporty yet comfortable riding position is made possible by optimizing the riding triangle.
In terms of bicycle components, the new BMW R 1300 GS has an upgraded version of the stock suspension package. A new EVO Telelever arrangement is now installed at the front of the motorcycle, and a new EVO Paralever setup is now installed at the back. With the new, upgraded design, the setup offers superior steering precision, increased rigidity, and stability. With the optional Dynamic Suspension Adjustment, the damping and spring preload can be dynamically adjusted in place of the Dynamic ESA. The technology will change the front and rear damping for a better ride depending on the riding mode, road conditions, and riding style. Additionally, the optional DSA has an adjustable seat height that changes the saddle height constantly when riding slowly & at a standstill and at a fast speed.
The brand-new R 1300 GS, which will be shortly accessible in markets worldwide, will soon get a price announcement from BMW Motorrad. Expect the Indian launch to occur shortly after the global debut. The new R 1300 GS will face off against motorcycles like the Triumph Tiger 1200 and Honda Africa Twin in India.
