Thruxton Special, Hyde Harrier Jubilee and Royal Enfield Clubman on a
ton-up trip to the coast to find out what they're all about...

week's MCN, on sale Wednesday 19 May 2010.
Triumph Thunderbird vs. the best of the rest

2013 Perfection Of An Icon - The New BMW R 1200 GS
The new BMW R 1200 GS.
The new BMW R 1200 GS.
The world's most successful travel enduro is perfected.
The "BMW GS" concept has embodied riding pleasure and the desire for
adventure for over 30 years. This applies especially to the GS motorcycles
with the opposed-twin "boxer" engine. The "big GS" allows motorcyclists to
explore the most remote corners of the world - an idea that has already
inspired numerous globetrotters to set off on their travels.
But the GS was and still is much more than this. Whether sports-style
cornering on winding country roads, excellent travel times due to high
motorway speeds, relaxed tours with a passenger or daring rides over rough
terrain - every GS has offered supreme mastery of these skills in its
respective era and this won't change with the new version.
It is the unique integrated concept of the big travel enduro bike with
boxer engine, complete with authentic charm and a powerful, high-torque
engine, which is loved by legions of motorcycle fans all over the world to
this day. It is not for nothing that the "big BMW GS" with boxer engine has
been the undisputed frontrunner in its market segment for many years and is
the best-seller within the BMW Motorrad model range. BMW is now beginning a
whole new chapter in GS history: the most popular travel enduro in the
world has been brought to perfection.
The challenge: how to improve even more following nine years at the top.
Even in its ninth year of production, the current BMW R 1200 GS is still
setting the benchmark in its segment in comparative tests with its
outstanding overall concept and innovative technology. With over 170,000
units sold, it is the most successful and top-selling travel enduro in the
So the challenge facing the BMW Motorrad development department was
considerable: to further optimise the GS - an icon of three decades -
improve it in all areas and equip it with innovative technical solutions to
ensure it is in good shape for the future.
The development goals of the new BMW R 1200 GS:
• Further increase performance overall - without neglecting its
• Perfect its touring suitability.
• Increase off-road suitability.
• Achieve superior figures within the travel enduro segment and
beyond in terms of engine and riding performance.
• Ensure preparation for the future in terms of noise and Exhaust emissions.
• Suspension with top handling, optimum traction and increased
• Increase active and passive safety.
• Unmistakable BMW Motorrad design in typical GS style.
• Top quality as is characteristic of BMW Motorrad.
Newly designed air/water-cooled boxer engine with vertical through-flow,
integrated gearbox and left-hand cardan shaft drive.
Geared towards the above goals, the entire R 1200 GS was completely
redefined, particularly the drive concept.
The performance aspired to, as well as adherence to future anticipated
requirements in terms of noise and Exhaust emissions, is ensured among other things
by a change in the cooling system. The boxer engine in the new R 1200 GS
continues to use air/liquid cooling, however, the coolant oil has been
replaced by a glycol-water mixture. This ensures a high level of heat
absorption capacity of the cooling liquid for more efficient heat
So-called precision cooling (a principle similar to that used in Formula 1)
involves only those engine elements being cooled with coolant, which are
particularly exposed to thermal stress. The engine still continues to use
air cooling, thereby preserving the characteristic appearance of the
opposed twin boxer engine. The two radiators are small and inconspicuously
The through-flow is now vertical instead of horizontal for improved
filling, and the engine housing integrates the 6-speed gearbox as well as a
wet clutch with anti-hopping function instead of the dry clutch as was used
previously. What is more, the secondary drive now runs via the
well-established cardan shaft on the left-hand side. With an output of 92
kW (125 bhp) at 7700 rpm and 125 Nm at 6500 rpm, the new engine offers
superior power and performance in the travel enduro segment and beyond.
