The BMW R1150GS was a dual-sports bike produced by BMW in 1999 as a successor to the BMW R1100GS. It was manufactured until 2004 when it was replaced by the R1200GS. In addition, a limited run of the R1150GSA was available from 2005 to 2006.

In 2001, the maker introduced the BMW R1150GS Adventure, an adventure motorcycle created by the House of Munich to tackle the roughest terrains possible, allowing riders to spend as much time as possible behind the bars.

In 2003, the German motorcycle maker introduced a new version of the Adventure model under the BMW R1150GS Adventure Bumble Bee, a special edition motorcycle with a black and yellow paint job. It was stripped down for a more clean look.

In other departments, the special edition motorcycle was identical to the base model, featuring the same technical, visual, and performance specifications without any significant changes whatsoever.

A BMW Motorrad Telelever system handled the front suspension, and two 304 mm brake discs with four-piston calipers dealt with the stopping power. In contrast, the rear end was controlled by a BMW Motorrad Paralever system and a 276 mm brake disc with a dual-piston caliper.

As for power, the 2003 BMW R1150GS Adventure Bumble Bee took its muscles from a 1,130cc four-stroke air/oil-cooled twin-cylinder boxer engine, boasting 85 hp at 6,750 rpm and 98 Nm (72 lb-ft) torque at 5,250 rpm.
