R1200GS Rallye: BMW’s Most Off-Road Capable Big-Bore ADV Bike?
2017 BMW R1200GS Review - Old vs. New - Off-Road Test in the Rain2017 the
Pavey runs 5-day off-road riding courses and riding holidays in the Algarve every year, and we were invited to get a taste of what the holidays are like with a one day experience, combined with the UK journalist press launch of the new RGS Rallye. Using the bhp liquid-cooled RGS as its base is a great place to start. A bike that you can happily cruise along at mph on Portuguese roads that appear to have been dropped from heaven, and then just turn left up a set of gnarly trails and pretend you are a Dakar riding God. We bumped into Husqvarna factory Dakar rider Ruben Faria out with his mate for a training ride on a full-factory Husqvarna rally bike, at the end of one of the trails we were riding. Anywhere and everywhere. It feels just at home doing both on or off-road, even on the optional off-road tyres.
Dirt-loving GS Riders are a special breed. They relish the challenge of riding a large ADV Bike through technical terrain better suited for small-displacement dual sports. Even so, with its rugged build and long-travel suspension, the GSA is capable of handling some of the toughest trails. The standard RGS is no slouch in the dirt either. Some would argue it has a slight advantage off-road. But what if you could get the best of both worlds?
