I've added nearly all of the BMW press photos for the new GS to SmugMug. 203 of them in all.

An additional coded plug enables the rider to access the “Enduro Pro” mode for more ambitious off-road riding. This setting provides significantly increased bottom-out reserves. In this mode - reserved solely for off-road use with studded tyres - experienced motorcyclists can deliberately make the rear wheel of the R 1200 GS break out due to ASC intervention adjusted to professional enduro use. The ABS characteristics are specially adapted to this type of sporty use since control is specifically geared towards riding on loose surfaces with studded tyres. What is more, ABS does not act on the rear wheel when the rear brake is applied. Deactivation of the part integral function means that the front and wheel brake operate entirely separately from one another, in keeping with the preferences of an experienced enduro rider, also allowing so-called initial brake drift before hairpin bends.

And when the coded plug is used, the individual Dynamic ESA setting is preserved over a change of riding mode. Without the coded plug all settings are set to default, e.g. when turning off the ignition. ABS and ASC can be manually disengaged by the rider in all modes. With the coded plug inserted, the systems remain deactivated when restarting the bike after having turned off the ignition before.

Instrument clusters with customizable functions and on-board computer PRO as ex works option.
Meanwhile, the so-called “on-board computer PRO” is available as an ex works option featuring significantly expanded functions geared specifically to the needs of enduro riders.
The set-up menu can be used to configure settings specific to both rider and vehicle. For example, different languages and automatic activation of the daytime running light are incorporated here.

The more I see this bike with the cast wheels, the more I prefer them to spoked. If I were to order one today, I'd set the cast wheels for sure.

So BMW shoves ABS & Linking down your throat ($$$) , then for a bit more ($) will allow the rider to make their own decision on how best to control their bike. Thanks so much!

Hmmm. You can turn off both. Just the way as on any other bike and just like the current GS. This thing is to have it stay turned off.

So, BMW is giving an option to keep this off. That's it. It's a feature addition but they are not making it easy because you are turning off safety features.

Agreed. And that's the colour I have on order as well. I need to make a final decision on colour/ wheels etc by the beginning of January, but keep changing my mind! I asked my wife if she preferred thunder grey or alpine white, and she prefers the red

They could have missed it out on bikes sold outside Europe I guess but shortly it will be EU requirement to have ABS. I suppose it's just easier/cheaper to make it as part of the base on every bike.

No, no new MS on the horizon. I wanted to make some more room in the garage and get down to one bike for a while. I got rid of the MS and the GS and picked up the Diavel AMG. Im sort of an AMG freak and have two AMG cars as well. When I saw the Diavel AMG at the dealer I had to to test it. One ride and I was sold on the bike.

I had one of the first MS1200s to hit the US and although I have gotten the fueling acceptable it was still not as good as I would like it. The fueling of the Diavel AMG is much better than the MS and its a blast to ride. I dont do any traveling, most rides are 1 hour or less so the Diavel gives me more than I need. I think Ducati has a handle on the MS fueling now with all the updates but back when I got my bike it was very frustrating and put a bad taste in my mouth regarding the MS. It was a great bike but I think the Diavel is just better suited to my needs.

Hey "Fixinbones", you latest Ducati AMG came with LED daylight running lights? I saw that on Ducati website, an array of LED lights between upper and lower lights, and I assume those were the DRL's.
