The BMW R1150GS was a dual-sports machine made by BMW in 1999 to replace 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.

The German maker introduced a more adventurous model under the BMW R1150GS Adventure designation, which packed additional features and accessories that made it tackle the roughest terrains.

In 2005, the German motorcycle manufacturer introduced the BMW R1150GS Adventure Special Edition, a special edition version of the Adventure model that came with a white and blue color scheme, a blue anodized finish on the rims, a one-piece dual seat finished in blue, and stripped-down for a cleaner appearance.

In other departments, the special edition version was identical to the base model, featuring the same technical and performance specifications.

The bike's appearance was characterized by standard fittings, like a mudguard mounted close to the front wheel, a large beak, dual round headlights, a small windscreen, a one-piece dual seat with a passenger grab handle, a two-into-one exhaust system, an engine skid plate, and wire-spoke wheels with off-road tires.

As for power, the 2005 BMW R1150GS Adventure Special Edition had installed a 1,130cc four-stroke air/oil-cooled twin-cylinder boxer engine underneath its fuel tank. As for the power figures, the engine boasted 85 hp at 6,750 rpm and 98 Nm (72 lb-ft) torque at 5,250 rpm.
