OC Motorcycle has diverse rental bike offerings and the BMW GS1200R, a powerful yet nimble sport bike that can handle the diverse riding we have here in Southern California, is no exception.
The GS has been in BMW’s line-up since 1980 and only a few changes have been made over the past two years for the 2015 version. The crank shaft is a bit heavier allowing for improved throttle control and the bike features aluminum wheels instead of spoked rims giving it a more rigid feel. An excellent urban bike, the GS can easily handle highways and freeways, but is adaptable to even fairly rigorous road conditions. The 2015 model has a slightly smaller windscreen as well as a narrower profile, but can accommodate both passengers and luggage with ease making it a perfect choice as a touring bike as well. Seat height is 33.5” which is somewhat high.
The GS has an air and liquid-cooled twin boxer engine and Telelever (front) and Paralever (rear) wheel suspension for efficient brake control. BMW has manufactured this bike with a very informative dashboard with many features that may or may not be employed depending on your riding preferences as well as an onboard computer. The GS offers two riding modes-Rain or Road-and can be changed while riding if conditions change quickly.
• Air/liquid cooled twin engine, 4 stroke
• 1170 cc
• 5.3 gallon fuel capacity with 1 gallon reserve
• 525 lb. wet weight
• Tires: front 120/70-R19; rear 170/60-R17
• ABS brake system
The BMW GS1200R will easily impress most riders with its accessible power and intuitive handling. Call OC Motorcycle to reserve this bike for a great weekend ride in Southern California.
