BMW R1200GS production hits 100,000 units mark


Between 2004 and now, BMW have made 100,000 units of the R1200GS!

More motorcyclists than ever before, it seems, are saddling up and riding off into the unknown. And most of them are apparently choosing the BMW R1200GS for their epic journeys across the world. We say this because BMW report that between February 2004 and the 27th of July this year, they've made a total of 100,000 units of the R1200GS and GS Adventure machines. This compares well with the older R1150GS – BMW only made about 58,000 units of that bike between 1999 and 2003...

In the meanwhile, go here to see what Cycle World have to say about our favourite BMW, the HP2 Megamoto!
