Description

Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2008 BMW R1200GS. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Upon its introduction in 1999, BMW’s R1150GS redefined the adventure bike category. By 2004, however, the model was beginning to show its age. In order to stay competitive, BMW had to give it an overhaul.

What resulted was the R1200GS, a platform that weighed some 66lbs lighter than its predecessor with the added benefit of a further 19hp.

Of course, BMW’s refinements didn’t end with the bike’s launch; over the years, the German motorcycle manufacturer continued to update the R1200GS. For 2007, the engine got an additional 5hp, while the brakes benefitted from a new Integral ABS II antilock system (without the noisy servo assistance). Assuming you wanted the absolute pinnacle of performance, BMW would also sell you optional add-ons such as electronic suspension adjustment and Automatic Stability Control.

As Cycle World said in its first-ride review: “The GS looks as neat and sharp as ever, but on the road it feels a million bucks stronger and much more fun.”

This example is VIN: WB10313068ZU44531. The seller inherited the bike from his father.

The odometer shows 9,063 miles.
