2017 BMW R1200GS Adventure Triple Black Looks Sleek

It's difficult to say how much we enjoy seeing BMW's flagship R1200 GS Adventure enduro-travel machine playing it cool and being available in more than the official livery. Of course, it's that time of the year when we can show you a preview of the BMW R1200GS Adventure Triple Black version for the upcoming season.

We haven't been keeping count of how many Triple Black editions the R1200GS Adventure had, but we're thrilled to see that house Munich didn't ditch the idea.

For 2017, BMW still avoids delivering a true all-black GSA beast, but we can hope that the voices of those who dream of an entirely darkened machine will be heard. So far, BMW is still stubborn enough to install silvery crash guards on the R1200GS Adventure, while retaining the same look for the rear luggage rack. Also, the collectors are proudly breaking the harmony with their stainless steel mirror finish that matches that of the exhaust silencer's sleeve.

Several other parts have been left unanodized black, and the list includes the bash plate under the engine, the rear subframe superstructure, the handlebars, and the lower fork regions that accommodate the axle and the calipers. How hard is it co have them blackened out, too, especially as so many other aluminium parts got this treatment, such as the swingarm and both hubs?

As for the 2017 BMW R1200GS Adventure Triple Black, its middle tank covers, tank-top storage compartment, and front fender wear a Black Storm Metallic paint. For a match, the engine, rims and hubs are also black, while the rear subframe, valve covers, and the tank, plus several other accents are painted in Agathe Grey.

The 2017 BWM R1200GS Adventure Triple Black will be available in limited quantities, and in Germany, it can be bought for €16,830 as opposed to the standard version that retails for €16,500.
