2014 BMW R 1200 GS Adventure

Although the American nation likes trucks, muscle cars, big houses they also keep a special place in their hearts for motorcycles. All kinds of motorcycles like sports, dirt, large, small no matter the look they respect the power. One of their favorite is the BMW with a great reputation especially the R1200GS. It is a great motorbike with all the accessories and the big fuel load.
It was produced in Canada, Mexico but also arrived in Arizona. One of the most prolific models produced in Germany is this model. And it is very possible that is the most selling model around the world. The GSA is a big deal in USA maybe because they respect bigger motorbikes. Actually this model is kind of upgrade for the GS. There are 15 more hp added and also they upgraded the frame and the shaft drive from the left side and also the electronic suspension as well as the brakes. Also they added extra touring accessories.
Maybe the biggest difference are the bars between the engine and the fairing. The footpegs have endure-style that is wider and also the brake lever is adjustable. The windscreen is bigger which allows bigger comfort.

The changes of the engine can be seen in first look. The crankshaft is heavier and the flywheel effect is increased too. Also very important thing is that it has electronic damping also it has hydraulic damper. Make no mistake this is a really big motorcycle. People are able to say the difference and all the changes that make this motorcycle better. Also it was tested in a 100 mile ride in Arizona and everything was great. It can provide a ride without vibration. You like adventure this is pure adventure. People anxiously expected it to come out and many people spent their years savings in order to afford it. The price is parallel with all its features. Although, they made few changes. The base model costs 18 200$ but the price was dropped by few dollars. It is a luxurious model so the price is on point. People who love motorcycles and love BMW will be satisfied and enjoy it!!!
