Limited Edition BMW GS Range

BMW Motorrad celebrates 30 years of the GS with a limited edition GS range


BMW Motorrad is celebrating 30 years of the iconic ‘Gelande-Strasse’ (on/off-
road) range in 2010. Launching the “30 Years GS” limited edition versions of
the BMW R 1200 GS, the R 1200 GS Adventure, the F 800 GS and the F 650
GS, BMW Motorrad is paying tribute to the outstanding success and popularity
of the GS concept.

Back in the autumn of 1980, BMW Motorrad unveiled the R 80 G/S, a unique
motorcycle that pioneered the Adventure Motorcycling genre. Offering the
unique combination of on-road, touring and off-road qualities, without the
slightest compromise in everyday use, the R 80 G/S paved the way as a brand-
new concept, the first true Adventure Sport motorcycle.

The special edition “30 Years GS” models feature the celebrated BMW
Motorsports colours of the legendary eighties’ R 80 G/S Rally Raiders that
propelled the likes of Hubert Auriol to victories in gruelling Paris-Dakar races,
almost three decades ago.

As well as the glorious retro colour scheme, each “30 Years GS” model has a
range of additional features and equipment.

Highlights of the BMW R 1200 GS “30 Years GS”:

• Paintwork in Alpine White. 
• Three-coloured decals in the livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport. 
• “30 Years GS” model designation on the tank. 
• Cross-spoke wheels with black hubs. 
• Hand protectors. 
• Tinted windshield. 
• Red seat with “GS” stamp.

Highlights of the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure “30 Years GS”:

Highlights of the BMW F 800 GS “30 Years GS”:
• Paintwork in Alpine White. 
• Three-coloured decals in the livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport. 
• “30 Years GS” model designation on the airbox cover. 
• Hand protectors.

Highlights of the BMW F 650 GS “30 Years GS”:

• Seat in red with “GS” stamp at the front. Tony Jakeman, Marketing Manager for BMW Motorrad UK, said: “The popularity, and
high volume of sales, over the past 30 years underline the unique and universal appeal
of the GS ‘Gelande Strasse’ concept.

“Until fairly recently, BMW’s GS range of motorcycles was considered a rather niche
proposition, used mainly by globetrotters and desert racers. However, the legendary
GS has now firmly entered the mainstream, buoyed by a realisation that the unique
blend of on and off-road capabilities, combined with the GS range’s touring credentials,
make for the perfect all-round motorcycle.”

The “30 Year GS” range will be launched at Vines BMW Motorrad Dealers on 19th June
when prices will be announced.
