The BMW R1200GS, alongside the R1200GS Adventure (also known as the R1200GSA), was a motorcycle produced by BMW Motorrad in Berlin, Germany, from 2004 to 2012. The BMW R1200GS Adventure was manufactured from 2005 until 2013.

In 2012, the German motorcycle manufacturer released the BMW R1200GS Triple Black, a motorcycle in its second production year. The bike packed the same specifications as the previous model without modifications.

The engineers from the House of Munich took the base R1200GS model and made it mode dark. It came with the Sapphire Black Metallic body paint, wire-spoke wheels with blacked-out rims, a black front fork, black engine accents, an embossed seat with a GS logo, an Asphalt Grey Metallic swingarm, rear frame, and valve covers.

In the tech department, the bike was similar to the base model, except for the Premium Package Equipment, which included the Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA) system, heated grips, an on-board computer, hand guards, integral ABS, and saddle bag mounts.

As for power, the 2012 BMW R1200GS Triple Black had its soul brought to life by a 1,170cc four-stroke twin-cylinder air/oil-cooled boxer engine that delivered 110 hp at 7,750 rpm and 121 Nm (89 lb-ft) torque at 6,000 rpm.

Braking-wise, the motorcycle packed two 305 mm brake rotors with four-piston fixed calipers on the front and a 265 mm disc with a two-piston caliper on the rear.
