BMW Motorrad is gearing up to launch the new R 1250 GS motorcycle in the Indian market soon. The bike will be introduced in two trims - R 1250 GS and R 1250 GS Adventure. The company has informed of the arrival of the new bike on its social media handles. The new R 1250 GS is already sold in some of the international markets.
The India-bound model will be identical to the international version. It is a shaft-driven motorcycle featuring a large fuel tank, a tall-set exhaust, and split-style seats.
