BMW R 1300 GS spy shots arrive from Germany the new flagship of the House of Monaco that revolutionizes the family of Bavarian events. Colleagues of motorcycle they pinched two prototypes during a road test which Very interesting news appears.
Looking ahead (here is a picture) you immediately see the black “box” that contains the radar, a millimeter wave device that allows the R 1300 GS to have technological safety systems, such as adaptive cruise control. The headlight has been hidden so it doesn’t show its shape, but we can see the revised display with more rounded lines.
Considering two examples (picture), with a different configuration, you can see the direction indicators included in the guards, a sign that two different versions may arrive (at least aesthetically) of the R 1300 GS.
Looking back (picture), immediately catches the eye second radarplaced between the license plate and the tail: this second device will be used to warn the pilot, and the led connected to the rear view mirror (picture), that the car is coming and is close to an invisible point. Among the new things, along with the different triangulation of the seat, there is a windshield that will be changed electrically with a new display.
Technically, the GS is new, to begin with motor. “boxerone” correctly grows in volume, and it does so by increasing bearing, leaving the stroke unchanged. Our German colleagues are also considering the conversion of the engine into a semi-dry sump, with power and torque values of around 140/150 HP and 145 Nm of torque respectively.
In addition to the new look, the Paralever single-sided swingarm (here’s a picture) it is stronger and seems to be shorter than that of R 1250 GS. In terms of bike dimensions, we can therefore expect a shorter wheelbase, to make the new flagship more agile and prone to off-road driving. As far as the weight is concerned, it should be less, as the pictures show bigger models.
