With a higher-capacity boxer engine, the bike's new 1,300cc twin-cylinder unit mated to a six-speed gearbox produces 145bhp of maximum power at 7,750rpm and 149Nm of peak torque at 6,500rpm. Despite its larger displacement, the new motor is more compact, thanks to the positioning of the transmission under the engine. Moreover, the bike weighs around 12 kg less than the previous generation model.

BMW R 1300 GS: Suspension

An aluminium die-cast subframe connects a new sheet metal frame to the R 1300 GS. The adventure tourer also makes use of its proprietary suspension system, which consists of a new EVO paralever unit at the back and an EVO telelever unit up front. Additionally, the company will provide an optional dynamic suspension that allows for real-time spring preload adjustment and damping. At slow speeds or while parked, the bike's seat can be easily adjusted.
