The bike that made the brand, the BMW R1200GS is about to get updated for the 2013 model year, and the Bavarians have been busy testing their new adventure bike. As such the ever questionable “spy photos” have made their way onto the interwebs, and we diligently give in to the new trend in motorcycle marketing to bring you some very clear photos of the 2013 BMW R1250GS. While the new BMW R1250GS looks ready for prime time, and is expected to be a liquid-cooled version of the now iconic GS, we imagine BMW is still surely stepping carefully with the R1250GS’s final design.

One of the best-selling motorcycles worldwide, the BMW GS has defined the now lucrative adventure-touring market segment. Accordingly, BMW must be keen on making sure the new 2013 BMW R1250GS doesn’t alienate its core constituency of GS riders. However, the German brand is surely also feeling the pressure to update its air-cooled line with water-cooled motors, as well as bringing other modern features to its motorcycles.

While the design of the BMW R1250GS looks to be more of a refreshing of the current R1200GS, immediately apparent is the LED running light and other modern features that have become standard in the class. The motor is obviously brand new, and the cylinder heads look to sit higher on the bike than previously on the older GS.

What will be interesting to see in 2013 is how BMW positions the new R1250GS against the Triumph Tiger Explorer, Ducati Multistrada 1200, and other adventure bikes. Will the 2013 BMW R1250GS be a reaction to these machines, or will BMW continue to define the marketplace? Only time will tell.

    motorcycles are like TV’s they keep changing them and making them better and more appealing to a point…but too bad motorcycles are not TV’s cause the pricing would go down as technology gets better…

    It certainly looks impressive its pretty hard to beat there current model but I guess they will, but we will have to wait a little longer to find out I guess.
