AltRider Reviews: BMW 2010 R1200GS

The 2010 R1200GS is BMW's latest version of the GS models, which have literally defined the Adventure Touring category of motorcycles. BMW understands the multiple roles that and Adventure bike must perform, and they continue to refine their proven platform.

The basic layout of the GS remains unchanged; a tall bike with an upright seating position, plenty of ground clearance, wide bars, and lots of places to mount luggage and accessories. The big change for the 2010 GS is the performance-tuned boxer twin, taken right from the HP2 Sport and specifically tuned for adventure duty.
