BMW Motorrad is entering new territory with the BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control system. What does this mean for you? That means smoother running in the low speed range and high torque in each speed range. This results in a balanced engine running that gives you even more confidence when riding your R 1250 GS Adventure. The engine capacity is now 1254 ccm. This performance increase is clearly noticeable on any terrain with 100kW (136 hp) and 143 Nm max. torque at 6,250 rpm. The high torque curve, the elasticity with impressive sprint qualities and the sovereign acceleration let you experience your adventures with even more intensity. The revision of the engine with BMW Shiftcam ensures an optimal combustion process and thus an overall increase in energy efficiency.
