BMW Motorrad has officially revealed the 2021 R 1250 GS and R 1250 GS Adventure. BMW has updated its flagship adventure motorcycle for 2021 and the changes are limited to a set of new colours and updated list of standard features, across variants. The 2021 BMW R 1250 GS range is available with new colour options. The standard R 1250 GS is available in Triple Black and Solid White paint schemes. The R 1250 GS Adventure, on the other hand, is also available in Triple Black and a new ice grey colour. The BMW white, red and blue Rallye colours are also available.

If the new colour options don't float your boat, the BMW R 1250 GS and R 1250 GS Adventure are also available with the special 40th Anniversary paint scheme. This 'Edition 40 Years GS' black and yellow paint work commemorates 40 years of the iconic BMW GS motorcycles, and takes inspiration from the BMW R 100 GS. The 2021 BMW R 1250 GS range gets a wide array of features as standard equipment across the range. The list includes Dynamic Traction Control for better control, especially in tricky situations. The company has also added an Eco mode as standard, which moderately adjusts torque and power delivery in order to maximise fuel efficiency.

Another handy feature that comes with the BMW R 1250 GS series is the BMW Integral ABS Pro system. In essence, it is a type of combi-braking system that engages both the front and rear brakes simultaneously, when the front brake lever is pulled in. The system works in conjunction with the six-axis IMU to adjust braking performance, based on whether the motorcycle is being ridden on-road or off-road. Other notable features include optional adaptive cornering lights, with a headlight reflector that's able to swivel by 30 degree and light up the corner. The height of the headlamp beam can also be adjusted in case there is a pillion or luggage onboard.

For 2021, the updated BMW R 1250 GS range is powered by a Euro 5 compliant, 1254cc and boxer engine. The twin-cylinder engine develops 136hp at 7,750rpm and 143Nm at 6,250rpm. The engine uses BMW's ShiftCam technology, the company's version or variable valve timing. It improves combustion and refinement, while delivering more power across the rev band. Speaking of which, BMW is yet to confirm the launch dates of the 2021 R 1250 GS range in Nepal. Our estimate is that the company may launch the motorcycle early next year.
