Details of a new special edition GS motorcycle model from BMW have just launched, revealing the Triple Black ahead of the bike’s official debut at the upcoming EICMA show in Milan this November.

Basically, there are no mechanical changes made to the bike, but it does come with several blackened elements and BMW’s premium parts package for the R1200GS. The latter includes Enduro Electronic Suspension Adjustment, heated grips, hand guards, anti-lock brakes, and pannier mounting points.

“As before, the stiff and torsionally-resistant suspension, front wheel guidance with the unique BMW Telelever, and the rear wheel incorporating the BMW Paralever contribute to first-class riding qualities, along with the increased performance of the new engine,” BMW says.

“In conjunction with optional BMW Motorrad Integral ABS, extremely powerful brakes serve additionally to contribute to maximum safety even in critical situations.”

Sporting a sapphire black metallic paint, along with murdered cross-spoke wheels, front forks, engine casings, the Triple Black is also boasting asphalt grey metallic paint on the swingarm, rear sub-frame, and valve covers.

This means the 2011 BMW R1200GS Triple Black uses the same newly revised 110 hp DOHC boxer twin-cylinder motor as the standard GS and GS Adventure models.

“Featuring an exhaust flap controlled by an electric motor as well as opening and closing cables, the new BMW R 1200 GS motorcycle family has a particularly throaty boxer sound naturally in full compliance with legal standards,”
a company statement reads.

The 2011 BMW R1200GS Triple Black SE will go on sale in the US in early 2011 with a MSRP of $18,385. This means some extra $3,935 if the MSRP stays the same as in 2010.
