BMW Motorrad launches R 1200 GS xDrive Hybrid

  • By cannonball

Leaping ahead in motorcycle technology is the BMW Motorrad R 1200 GS xDrive Hybrid, the world’s first series-production all-wheel drive travel enduro with hybrid drive. Designed to conquer any sort of terrain, anywhere in the world, the R1200 GS xDrive Hybrid is based on the legendary R 1200 GS Adventure.

What sets this particular GS apart is the air/liquid-cooled flat-twin that generates 125 hp at 7,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 125 Nm at 6,500 rpm with a unique all-wheel drive system that provides better traction on slippery road conditions, deep sand or mud. Derived from the system developed by BMW Automobiles, the XDrive Hybrid is also powered by a wheel-hub e-Drive system which functions both as an electric motor and generator, with the system activated by a switch on the left handlebar pod.
