BMW Releases Pricing for New R 1200 GSWell, the suspense is over, we can now tell you just how many of your hard earned Washingtons it’s going to take to place a shiny new water-cooled BMW R 1200 GS in your garage. If you can exercise almost super-human self-control when it comes to checking off option boxes, you can ride off into the sunset on BMW’s latest and greatest for $15,800. Thankfully this base model comes well equipped with ABS, center stand, engine guard, height adjustable seat and windscreen, power socket, LED rear light, and more. Moving up the spec sheet, the Standard Package ($16,600) adds heated grips, cruise control, and saddlebag mounts. Next up is the Premium Package ($17,990), which includes the Touring Package ($1,450) and the Active Package ($740). The Touring Package adds Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment), upgraded onboard computer, GPS preparation, chrome exhaust, heated grips, hand protection, and saddlebag mounts, while the Active Package tacks on Enduro ASC (Automatic Stability Control) with riding modes and cruise control. If you’re not too confused yet, the Premium Plus Package ($18,870) is a combination of the Comfort Package ($620), the Dynamic Package ($2,100), and cruise control ($350). To keep things simple we’ll just say that the Premium Plus Package includes everything in the previous packages plus a tire pressure monitor and LED headlight. The new GS will be available in Fire Blue, Racing Red, Thunder Gray Metallic, and Alpine White.
