At the ongoing 2016 EICMA, BMW has showcased their updated R 1200 GS range of adventure motorcycles. In addition to the styling changes, the 2017 R 1200 GS also gets a Euro-IV compliant motor. BMW has also laden more electronics to make it more functional than the previous iterations. The R 1200 GS is now offered in two versions - Exclusive and Rallye. Both the machines use a 1,170cc motor that churn out125PS of power at 7,750rpm and generates 125Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. We believe that updated R 1200 GS will be launched by the end of next year and compete with the Triumph Explorer and the Suzuki V-Strom 1000. Read all the details on the 2017 BMW R 1200 GS here
