That said, the R 1250 GS sits comfortably on top of the food chain despite numerous attempts by other manufacturer to try and have a piece of the throne.

Currently, the R 1250 GS is available in various trims and colours, but BMW up the ante with the latest rendition revealed at the Alpes Aventures Motofestival.

The Spirit of GS edition features grey and orange accents creating an eye-catching aesthetic. 

Also, the bike gets black and orange side scoops, wheel accents and an aluminium handguard as standard. BMW also stamped the serial number on the handlebar clamp to remind you of its rarity.

Other notable features include a smoked windscreen, engine spoiler and engine crash guard.

The 2022 BMW R 1250 GS Spirit of GS Edition is priced at EUR27,990 (RM127k).
