Connectivity with colour display as standard.
The 6.5-inch TFT colour display shows information such as speed and rpm, navigation, telephony, media and additional vehicle information. When darkness sets in or when riding through tunnels, the lighting and colour intensity of the display are automatically adjusted. Even in strong sunlight, all of the information is very easy to read.

BMW Motorrad Spezial
BMW Motorrad Spezial offers particularly design-defining billed packs packages for the R 1250 GS. The HP billet packs underlines the sporty character of the machine with aluminium components. The Classic billet pack of the exclusive Option 719 sets stylish accents with high-quality components in a silver-coloured look. And the Option 719 Storm billet pack gives the machine a unique rough look in silver-grey.

Dynamic Brake Control.
DBC supports you in emergency braking by counteracting the often unwanted gas actuation in such an extreme situation. The intervention in the engine control reduces the engine torque. At the same time, the braking power is increased at the rear wheel. The result: more safety through the best possible use of the braking capacity to stabilize your bike and shorten the stopping distance.
