Here’s How The Upcoming BMW R 1300 GS Sounds Like

Several spy shots of two BMW R 1300 GS motorcycles cruising on public roads already made it’s way online. 

  • These bikes boasted numerous similar features, with one flaunting additional accessories like a robust engine guard.
  • Notably, the presence of adaptive radar, which had been speculated, was finally confirmed through these compelling photographs.

While a picture can convey a lot, it fails to capture the true essence of sound. Just as you can’t imagine the call of a bird by looking at its picture, motorcycles also need to be heard to be fully experienced.

Naturally, prospective riders are curious about the auditory character of a bike. Does it emit a resonant and satisfying rumble? Or perhaps a peculiar high-pitched burble? Does it exhibit valve chatter, indicating potential engine troubles? Although the latter concern usually applies to used bikes, the significance of sound in shaping one’s perception of a motorcycle cannot be underestimated.

To cater to the curiosity of the global motorcycling community, the esteemed team at 1000ps, an Austrian moto publication, has shared an enticing video showcasing the upcoming BMW R 1300 GS.

This video provides an immersive audio experience, allowing you to hear the distinctive sound of the motorcycle. We recommend using high-quality headphones to truly appreciate it.

With each passing day, the puzzle pieces are falling into place, giving us a clearer picture of what to anticipate from the forthcoming BMW R 1300 GS when it finally hits the global stage. 

In a separate development, BMW recently celebrated a significant milestone, as the one millionth GS motorcycle equipped with a boxer engine rolled off the assembly line in Munich in late June 2023. Coinciding with this celebration, the OEM proudly announced that the worldwide premiere of the highly anticipated R 1300 GS is scheduled for September 28, 2023.
