TripleBlack – the name says it all with this BMW R 1200 GS special model. BMW Motorrad is responding to a wish expressed by many customers by bringing out the world’s top-selling motorcycle in a virtually all-black finish.

The central fuel tank cover, fuel tank side panels and front mudguard in Black storm metallic together with black anodised fork slider tubes give the legendary travel enduro a strikingly masculine touch. Powerful technical accentuations are provided by the front and rear frame in Agate Grey in combination with the engine, gearbox and swinging arm.

The special model is fitted with the cross-spoke wheels with black gloss rim base familiar from the R 1200 GS Adventure, previously available as a special equipment feature.

A new black-grey seat with striking “GS” application on passenger seat rounds off the strong appearance of the new R 1200 GS TripleBlack.
