2013 BMW R1200GS will cost £11,395

BMW's R1200GS will cost £11,395 for the standard bike
BMW’s new 2013 R1200GS will cost £11,395 when it goes on sale in March 2013.

The new liquid-cooled bikes will start at £11,395 and go up to £13,815 for the R1200GS TE (Touring Edition) which comes with electronically adjustable suspension and adjustable power modes.

That compares to the new KTM Adventure which costs £12,595 for the standard bike and £13,095 for the electronically-equipped Adventure.

Adrian Roderick, General Manager for BMW Motorrad said: “It is with great pleasure that we are able to announce the prices and launch date for the highly-anticipated new R 1200 GS. This stunning motorcycle is more innovative, more powerful and more affordable than ever before. Not only does it pack more in than the much-loved 2012 model, it is also even better value; offering a saving of £200 compared to the 2012 motorcycle with ABS.”

A wire-wheel version with settings for off-road to adjust the ABS and traction control for riding in the dirt called the R1200GS E will cost £12,435.
