In 1998, the German motorcycle maker released the BMW R1100GS. This dual-sports motorcycle came with a second-generation anti-lock brake system (ABS), available as an optional extra, with an off option included.

The BMW R1100GS was a dual-sports motorcycle manufactured by BMW in 1994 as a successor to the R110GS and R80GS. It continued production until 1999 when it was replaced by the R1150GS.

The bike had standard features in the visual department, such as a mudguard mounted close to the front wheel, wire-spoke wheels, an extended beak, a small windscreen, a two-piece dual seat with a passenger grab handle, a luggage rack, a two-into-one exhaust system, and a single-sided swingarm.

The bike's wheels were equipped with two 297 mm brake rotors coupled to three-piston calipers on the front and a 250 mm rotor squeezed by a three-piston caliper on the rear, complemented by the ABS.

As for the power figures, the 1998 BMW R1100GS took its thrust from a 1,085cc four-stroke air/oil-cooled twin-cylinder boxer engine that delivered an output power of 80 hp with a peak force at 6,750 rpm and 98 Nm (72 lb-ft) torque at 5,250 rpm.

The power generated by the boxer engine was sent to the rear wheel via a final shaft drive and a five-speed manual gearbox, launching the motorcycle to a top speed of 202 kph (125 mph).
