The BMW R1100GS was a dual-sports motorcycle produced by BMW in 1994 to replace the BMW R100GS and R80GS until 1999 when it was succeeded by the BMW R1150GS. It was presented in 1993 and was powered by a 1,085cc flat-twin boxer engine first seen in the R1100RS manufactured a year earlier.

In addition, the R1100RS was the first member of the GS family that featured an air/oil-cooled engine instead of the air-cooled ones, which had been used on BMW motorcycles since the 1923 BMW R32.

In 1995, the German motorcycle manufacturer released the BMW R1100GS, a dual-sports motorcycle in its second production year. It came with the same package as the previous model without significant changes.

Visually, the bike had standard features, such as a front mudguard close to the wheel, a long beak mounted underneath the headlight, a windscreen, a two-piece dual seat with a passenger grab handle, an engine plate, and wire-spoke wheels.

Power-wise, the 1995 BMW R1100GS had installed a 1,084cc four-stroke air/oil-cooled twin-cylinder boxer engine underneath its fuel tank, boasting 80 hp with a peak force at 6,750 rpm and 98 Nm (72 lb-ft) torque at 5,250 rpm.

A five-speed manual transmission with a dry single-plate clutch redirected the power produced by the engine to the rear end via a final shaft drive, launching the motorcycle to a top speed of 202 kph (125 mph).
