2021 BMW R 1250 GS, R 1250 GS Adventure: upgraded equipment
For 2021, the bikes get Dynamic Traction Control and an Eco mode as standard. The latter adjusts torque and power delivery in order to maximise fuel economy. BMW has also said that the bikes come equipped with its combi-braking system called BMW Integral ABS Pro system. The tech works along with the six-axis IMU to adjust braking performance, depending on whether the motorcycle is being ridden on-road or off-road.
Optional extras include adaptive cornering lights with a provision to adjust the height of the headlight beam. The Hill Start Control Pro system has also been updated.
