Here are the top 10 features of BMW’s 2024 R 1300 GS.

New for the 2024 model year is BMW’s R 1300 GS adventure bike, which we reported on during the 2024 BMW R 1300 GS Adventure Bike Preview article. Recently BMW Motorrad hosted its official press introduction and we were there. Here are the top 10 features of this ADV after spending a few hours on it, divided into off-road and road riding categories.

2024 BMW R 1300 GS Trophy Edition for Off-Road Riders

  1. You wouldn’t believe how agile and nimble this bike is on the trail.
  2. These sharp and serrated footpegs and rear brake pedal are awesome.
  3. We don’t know how BMW does it but its 19-inch front wheel and Telelever suspension and 17-inch back wheel paired with paralever suspension/drivetrain works marvelously off-road.
  4. The electronics on the R 1300 GS are world class—we love the amount of adjustability it has for off-road riders.
  5. The ergonomics on this bike are awesome. This thing feels like you’re riding a 450 dirt bike.

2024 BMW R 1300 GS for Road Riders

  1. This suspension—you wouldn’t believe how well this bike glides over rough pavement, plus it still has a good amount of road holding in the twisties.
  2. The 1,300cc boxer twin. Wow, this thing pumps out some power and it’s smoother and has less vibration than the predecessor.
  3. The ergonomics on the bike just plain work. This is a very comfortable motorcycle to log miles on.
  4. The R 1300 GS has all the bells and whistles: heated grips, heated seat, plus a really advanced electronics package that is really easy to use.
  5. This 1,300cc ADV is crazy agile; you wouldn’t believe how well this 523-pound bike dances on the road.
