When the R1200 version of BMW’s GS on/off-road bike appeared in 2004 it wasn’t just an upgrade of the old 1150, it was a new generation of the company’s fabled Boxer twins. Thirty kilograms of weight was shed despite the engine gaining a balance shaft and the chassis was completely revised. A year after the first 1200GS was launched the range was extended with the R1200 ST and RT. These models carried on BMW’s tradition of cleverly differentiated sports tourer and full-house tourer, two motorcycles that look similar on paper but exhibit very different characters on the road. At Haynes, our BMW R1200 repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your bike.
