Munich - On 27.07.07, the BMW R 1200 GS, together with the model variant Adventure, celebrated an impressive record: In Berlin, the 100,000th 1200 GS rolled off the conveyor belt. 84,373 units of these were allotted to the classical GS, and 15,627 units were allotted to the model Adventure. No other BMW motorcycle has ever been built so often within such as short space of time. Hence, the BMW R 1200 GS is the most successful BMW motorcycle of all times.
The predecessor has held first place of the registration statistics for years; the 1200 GS already managed to achieve this right from the start. It has continued extending its lead to this day. In 2006, 31,138 units were delivered to customers worldwide.
From 1999 until 2003, the predecessor model R 1150 GS was built a total of 58,023 times. In addition to this, 17,828 units of the model variant Adventure (until 2005) were produced. Since 1994 to this day, a total of 219,468 GS models of the boxer engine generation with four valves per cylinder have been built. A figure that proves the popularity, supremacy and unique universality of the GS concept.
