Rugged cliffs, deep valleys, raging rivers and the breathtaking Mediterranean coastline are the challenging terrain of the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy from 4 to 10 September 2022 in Albania. The country is still considered a real insider's tip for off-road adventures, and this year 126 models of the R 1250 GS Trophy Competition, specially built for this event, will be available to the participating enduro riders from all over the world.
Superior thrust and power as well as customised equipment for challenging adventures in the most difficult terrain.
While the BMW F 850 GS was used as the competition bike at the last International GS Trophy in 2020, BMW Motorrad is returning to the competition with the R 1250 GS Trophy Competition featuring the flat-twin boxer engine. This offers the original, superior power delivery, beefy torque and maximum traction for the sometimes very demanding off-road passages, which often require riding in low gear. In addition to boasting an exclusive two-tone paint finish in Lightwhite uni / Gravityblue metallic matt in combination with specially designed GS Trophy stickers, the R 1250 GS Trophy Competition heads into the seven-day adventure featuring a whole series of changes made especially for this competition. For the model year 2023 the R 1250 GS will also be offered in this two-tone paint finish.
For example, this year's BMW International GS Trophy Competition Bike features, among other things, a robust enduro engine guard made of aluminium, a headlight protection guard, cylinder head covers that are particularly well protected against damage and a TFT display that is secured against damage in a fall and from falling rocks. The particularly robust enduro footrests from the R 1250 GS Adventure and adjustable gearshift and footbrake levers are just as much in keeping with the tough off-road use ahead of the bikes. Metzeler Karoo 4 tyres are mounted on the cross-spoke wheels, replacing the standard Karoo 3 tyres to ensure the best possible grip on difficult terrain. Sports windshield, rally seat and Akrapovic rear silencer round off the equipment of the competition vehicle.
Small Tank Bag Adventure Collection as a practical companion during long exhausting riding days.
With its 5 litre capacity, the small tank bag from the new Adventure Bag Collection offers the International GS Trophy participants another practical storage option for all kinds of utensils and some food and drink for the road. Thanks to its fasteners, it can be used as a rear bag on the R 1250 GS Trophy Competition. A waterproof inner bag, water-repellent and lockable two-way zips on the main compartment, a zipped lid pocket and a cable opening for a charging cable to the inside are further useful details of the Small Adventure Collection Tank Bag.
