The 2010 edition of the EICMA is now at full throttle, with visitors receiving an overdose of two-wheeled creations that are ready to take riding pleasures to a whole new level.

We couldn’t miss the occasion, so we sent out team on-site, in order to offer you a full coverage of the event. Now, we’ll pause the rush for a little, in order to present the BMW R 1200 GS.

The bike is powered by a 1,170 cc Boxer engine that lets the rider play with 110 hp (coming at 7,750 rpm), all the way up to 8,500. The unit delivers a maximum torque of 120 Nm ( 88 lb-ft) at 6,000 rpm. The powerplant uses two overhead camshafts per cylinder and valves in radial arrangement, as well as an electronically controlled exhaust flap that offers it a strong sound.

The ride can come dressed in a range of colors that includes Alpine White non-metallic, Magma Red non-metallic, Ostra Grey matt metallic, Sapphire Black metallic.

One optional goodie that is definitely worth choosing is the Enduro ESA Electronic Suspension Adjustment, which allows the driver to adjust the running gear using a special button.

The bike uses a special handlebar that is made of heat-treated aluminum and interacts with two asymmetrically mounted clamps turning by up to 180 degrees. The handlebar can be fitted in two positions: a rear one for riding onroad which is also more suitable for short riders and a front one that should be used for riding upright on rough terrain.
