BMW launches new R 1300 GS Adventure with 30-liter tank and semi-automatic transmission


BMW launched the new R 1300 GS Adventure in Europe, its top-of-the-line adventurous model, which comes with much more technology and practicality, to continue dominating the Big Trail segment.

The main highlights of the R 1300 GS Adventure are the 30-liter tank, the semi-automatic gearbox, the suspension with adaptive height control, and the unprecedented ‘Enduro’ riding mode.

The aluminum fuel tank is the main visible part that differentiates the model from the ‘normal’ R 1300 GS versions. It has its own shape and has points for attaching various accessories.

The semi-automatic transmission, offered as an option, is called Automated Shift Assistant (ASA) by the brand. It automates the clutch and gear changes for those who want to simplify this process, but maintains the system for those who prefer manual gear changes.

As mentioned, another highlight of the model is its additional technology. The R 1300 GS Adventure arrives with the ‘Enduro’ riding mode for off-road riding, in addition to the already known ‘Eco’, ‘Rain’ and ‘Road’. In addition, it has Dynamic Cruise Control (DCC) with braking function as standard, Active Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Change Warning, and the new Rear End Collision Warning (RECW) system.

Furthermore, it has the same base as the R 1300 GS. The centerpiece is its two-cylinder boxer engine, capable of delivering up to 145 HP of maximum power and 149 Nm of torque.

Just like its simpler ‘sister’, the new R 1300 GS Adventure comes in four versions: ‘basic’, Triple Black, GS Trophy, and Option 719 Karakorum.

For now, there is still no forecast for the arrival of this model in other markets.
