The BMW R 1250 GS and R 1250 GS Adventure have been a favourite amongst ADV buyers across the world, and the Indian market is no different. The German brand has now launched updated versions of both bikes. The R 1250 GS is priced at the same Rs 20.45 lakh as before, while the Adventure’s price has gone up by Rs 5,000 and it now costs Rs 22.40 lakh. These prices are introductory and expected to go up in the coming months.

2021 BMW R 1250 GS, R 1250 GS Adventure: updates

The changes are minor, both to the motorcycles as well as to their pricing. The pair of them get updated electronics –a new Integral ABS Pro mode, Eco riding mode, Hill Start Control Pro, and Dynamic Engine Brake Control. Buyers now also get the option of cornering lights.

There are also two new colour choices, namely Style Triple Black and Style Rallye. And for the first time in India, the 1250 GS models will get ’40 Years GS’ special editions, though their pricing is yet to be announced. These feature a unique yellow/black paint scheme, along with a yellow tinted visor, yellow seat, engine guard, and golden spoke wheels.

The rest remains unchanged, meaning that both models are still powered by a 1,254cc boxer engine producing 136hp and 143Nm. This engine features BMW’s ShiftCam variable valve timing technology. Differentiating the two models is the Adventure’s greater suspension travel, larger fuel tank, taller seat height and beefier crash protection.
