Wunderlich has stated that the new developments will be unveiled to trade visitors and GS enthusiasts for the first time at EICMA, the international motorcycle show which is held in Milan and just around the corner. 

The centrepiece of the 1250 GS is its engine, which promises two things: even more riding pleasure due to a higher torque and greater performance (143 Nm, 136 hp, 1254 ccm), at the same time as enhanced efficiency! These two goals, which appear to be somewhat contradictory, are achieved thanks to an adjustable “ShiftCam” inlet camshaft. Depending on the riding mode, it switches back and forth between the partial load or full load cam. The cams differ in terms of the engine valve timing and stroke. The partial load cam provides low consumption levels, torque and smoothness, while the full load cam guarantees optimised performance. The concept is supported by the new digital engine control and an electronic fuel injector with an opening width of 52 mm and what are known as “two-jet injection valves”. The engine lubrication system was also optimised, and has an oil supply which is adapted to the riding condition and style and piston crown cooling with injection oil.

The R 1250 GS is equipped with a TFT colour display and connectivity, full LED headlamps, traction control (ASC), 2 riding modes (Rain, Road) and hill start control (HSC) as standard. Available in Metallic Black Storm, Metallic Cosmic Blue, Style HP and Exclusive.

The BMW R 1250 RT has already arrived at Wunderlich’s Development Department too! Information will be provided shortly!
