2014 BMW R 1200 GS Adventure

You like extreme and long tours? On rough roads, over stony tracks out in the wild, too? Tarmac, offroad, stones and sand: These are the challenges the new BMW R 1200 GS Adventure is longing to master with its easy and agile handling. A machine for those who want to test their limits and go beyond them. Or to put it briefly: A motorcycle for riders who are seeking real adventure and don't want to miss out on a great deal of riding pleasure in the process.

Conquer any type of terrain on an enduro which meets all your practical needs. Two standard-fitted ride modes – "Rain" and "Road" – are available at the press of a button and offer two completely different, finely tuned riding experiences. It's like having two motorcycles in one. Further riding modes are also available as an option. 7.9 gallons in the fuel tank combined with the engine's optimized fuel efficiency really make you "unstoppable" on and off the road making unwanted stops a thing of the past. In addition the standard level of equipment was improved, e.g. to include an on-board computer. This enables perfect navigation and provides the rider with useful data such as fuel level, average speed and fuel consumption. This travel enduro is rounded off by a newly integrated compartment above the tank which allows you to keep small items within reach at all times.

The R 1200 GS Adventure responds dynamically in any situation thanks to the legendary 92 lb-ft of flat-twin torque and 125 bhp delivered by the new, air/liquid-cooled 2-cylinder 4-stroke engine.

The R 1200 GS is also characterized by its unmistakable design, further improved seating comfort, wind and weather protection and by its muscular presence. It is available in three color versions: Olive Matte, Racing Blue Metallic Matte and Alpine White.

Matt Markstaller, Bob Carpenter, and Jason DiSalvo have pulled together a team of people to restore Triumph Motorcycles' legacy in landspeed racing. Man's passion has always launched innovation, and these three men have set out to design, build and ride the world's most advanced streamliner, the Castrol Rocket.

Markstaller serves as aerodynamic engineer; Carpenter is the high-peformance engine builder; and Daytona 200 winner and Bonneville class record holder DiSalvo bravely pilots Triumph's latest entry. This cross-country team converges on the Bonneville Salt Flats, a 40 square mile salt pan in northwestern Utah, with the goal of a 400 mph plus record-breaking run.

Triumph held the title of "World's Fastest Motorcycle" from 1955 to 1970 with the exception of a brief 33-day period. The Triumph streamliners to carry world records were Devil's Arrow, Texas Cee-gar and Gyronaut X1, the last being at 245.60 mph (395.28 km/h). Today's bar now sits at 376.363 mph (605.697 km/h).

The 2013 edition Castrol Rocket features Carbon Kevlar monocoque construction with two turbocharged Triumph Rocket III engines producing a combined 1,000+ HP. It is 25.5' long, 2' wide and 3' tall, a true rocket on two wheels powered by methanol fuel and filled with Castrol 4T 10W40 full synthetic oil.

2014 BMW R1200GSW Wethead in Racing Red

One R 1200 GS. One Mission -- The best GS of all times.
The BMW R 1200 GS -- the icon of all travel enduros. For 32 years "the GS" has been defining its segment and has proven to be the trusty companion on any motorcycle adventure. BMW Motorrad is now embarking on a new chapter of its success story and is yet again perfecting the iconic R 1200 GS.

One R 1200 GS. One Feeling -- Power in every situation.
Powerful, refined, and high revving. The R 1200 GS is powered by a new opposed twin engine design delivering 125 hp. Based on a new concept of combined air and liquid cooling and vertical flows through the cylinders, the engine operates efficiently, reliably, and with high torques at all times. Further improvements like the new wet clutch with antihopping feature, the electromotive throttle actuator E-Gas, and the optional "riding modes" make the opposed twin engine the perfect drive solution at the heart of the new R 1200 GS.

One R 1200 GS. One Emotion -- Supreme control
The new R 1200 GS is ready for any terrain, thanks to the greater rigidity of its main frame and its enhanced Paralever and Telelever for even greater enduro steering accuracy. The optional Dynamic ESA configures the suspension automatically to the terrain and load conditions. The GS provides even more functions with the optional "riding modes", a set of four different configurations that can be selected at the push of a button.

One R 1200 GS. One Impression -- Strong individuality.
At first glance, the "new one" too is a genuine GS: robust, dynamic, and full of character. New body panels with a perfect finish underscore its high quality character. The new cooling concept was integrated seamlessly into the distinctive design, and the visual emphasis moved to the front. The new R 1200 GS now gives the impression of more balance and power. Thanks to its extensive range of options, the R 1200 GS is absolutely unique. With an innovative, unique LED headlamp, cross spoke wheels, and a wide choice of options and packages, everyone can convert this enduro into "his" or "her" GS.

One World. One R 1200 GS -- The tour of your life.
At the launch of the new R 1200 GS, BMW Motorrad will be setting a unique test ride in motion. In the "One World. One R 1200 GS." event, BMW Motorrad will be sending five enduro adventurers on the redefined icon R 1200 GS on five tours all around the world. The first of its kind in the world, this project will be putting "the new one" to a gruelling test -- and, with a little luck, give you too the opportunity for the tour of your life.

2014 BMW S1000RR in Granite Grey Matte and Alpine White.

When we build a superbike, we have no time for second best.
Presenting the very latest in racing power, the 2014 S 1000 RR.
With an aluminum bridge-type frame, radial brakes, a super sporty
tail-up nose-down design, hot colors and the ultimate combination
of electronic rider assistance.

The RR includes four riding modes that adjust power delivery,
throttle response, Race ABS action and even Dynamic Traction
Control (optional equipment).
Never before has it been so easy to keep so much power under control.

This is as true on public roads as it is on the racetrack. The RR is a
full-blooded racing bike, even though it can be ridden with a number
plate attached. A race proven sport bike for the road.
