BMW Motorrad is launching a limited edition GS range to celebrate 30 years of the “Gelande-Strasse” models.

The range will cover the BMW R1200 GS, the R 200 GS Adventure, the F800 GS and the F650 GS.

The special edition “30 Years GS” models will come in BMW motorsports colours of the legendary eighties’ R 80 G/S Rally Raiders that propelled the likes of Hubert Auriol to victories in gruelling Paris-Dakar races, almost three decades ago.



It was back in the autumn of 1980 that BMW Motorrad unveiled the R 80 G/S. BMW claims it “pioneered the adventure Motorcycling genre of on-road, touring and off-road qualities, without the slightest compromise in everyday use.

“It was a brand new concept, the first true Adventure Sport motorcycle,” BMW said.

As well as retro colour scheme, each “30 Years GS” model has a range of additional features and equipment.

BMW R 1200 GS “30 Years GS”:

  • Paintwork in Alpine White.
  • Three-coloured decals in the livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport.
  • “30 Years GS” model designation on the tank.

  • Tinted windshield.
  • Red seat with “GS” stamp.

  • Aluminium engine protection guard.
  • Seat in red/black with “GS” stamp.
BMW F 800 GS “30 Years GS”:

  • Three-coloured decals in the livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport.
  • “30 Years GS” model designation on the airbox cover.
  • Hand protectors.
  • Aluminium sump guard.
  • Tinted windshield.
  • White direction indicators.
  • Seat in red with “GS” stamp.
BMW F 650 GS “30 Years GS”:

  • Paintwork in Alpine White.
  • Three-coloured decals in the livery of BMW Motorrad Motorsport.
  • “30 Years GS” model designation at the rear.
  • Magnesium-coloured cast wheels.
  • Hand protectors.
  • Engine protector.

The “30 Year GS” range will be launched at BMW Motorrad Dealers on 19 June when prices will be announced.
