German bike maker, BMW Motorrad in collaboration with the native suspension specialist Touratech has uncovered the more off-road focused version of the standard R1200GS. This 50kgs lighter adventure motorcycle than the stocked BMW R1200GS model, is known as the BMW R1200GS Rambler.

The Rambler that is being considered as a successor of the BMW HP2 Enduro, has been improved to perform hard on to the off-road scenario by the addition of more bells and whistles. The indulged 1170cc boxer powertrain is tuned to produce more power than the stock version. Now the limp produces 126.7PS at 7,750 rpm and breathes out the delivered power output of 125Nm at 6,500rpm through a titanium exhaust system. This promising engine is in association with a six-speed gearbox with shaft drive that helps to offer a more responsive and fun ride on this adventure vehicle.

Other prominent mechanical bits includes an orthodox inverted fork setup in place of telelever front forks and a single-disc brake setup at the front incorporated with the advanced ABS system retained from the ongoing BMW R1200GS.

Touratech has boosted the standard bike’s off-roading capabilities with the assembling of the following parts: breathable seat, exhaust flap control guard, engine crash bars, LED headlight bulbs, anti-glare cockpit shield, exhaust flap guard, K&N oil filter, pannier system, rear fender tabs cover, suspension steering damper, splash guards, rear suspension unit, skid plate, adjustable folding mirror, lightweight single disc brake, passenger seat luggage rack, aluminium cylinder guards, etc.

Touratech assured besides being lighter, that has been achieved by stripping the bike down and employment of lightweight aluminum tube and the carbon fibre. The bike is extremely stable even at the high speeds. For now, the motorcycle is being offered in two colour options of Touratech’s trademark black, grey and yellow and in BMW’original red, white and blue Motorsport livery.
