BMW Motorrad has previously made all-black, direct from the factory, style packages for the R1200GS — for example the 2016 BMW R1200GS Triple Black — but that kind of package has been missing from the most recent generation R12GS. Today, BMW Motorrad has announced specially matched ‘Edition Black’ Original BMW Motorrad Accessories for the R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure. While not as simple as ordering a “Triple Black” R1200GS from your dealer, it does offer owners a choice of combinations to customize their motorcycles as they would like.
In addition to the usual range of BMW Motorrad accessories, these black anodized and black powder coated accessories are now available to individualize BMW’s big touring enduros:
- Aluminium luggage system, black.
- Holder, black, for aluminum topcase.
- Holder, black, for aluminum case.
- Enduro aluminum engine protector, black.
- Adjustable gear shift lever, black.
- Vario case holder, black.
- Footpeg mount, rear, black.
- Radiator covers “Style” black.
- Adjustable rider footpegs, black.
Details of the Edition Black accessory range.
Aluminum luggage system, black.
The aluminum luggage system consists of two side cases (36 l + 44 l) and one topcase (32 l) and is a practical solution for stowing luggage away safely. Each of the black anodized cases has two locks, and they are also fitted with lashing eyes for securing extra luggage. Additional accessories include inside bags for cases and topcase, a backrest pad for the topcase, and carry handles. A single-key locking system is also available.
Update (5/11/2018): USA pricing for the cases has been announced. The 32 liter top case MSRP is $800.28 while the side cases (36 liters, left, 44 liters, right) are $1,642.84. Installation requires luggage rack and case mounts sold separately.
Holder, black, for aluminium topcase.
This sturdy luggage bridge in an attractive black design enables safe securing of luggage. It is made of durable, rustproof stainless steel with black powder coating. It is also suitable for use with the Atacama soft luggage system.
Holder, black, for aluminum case.
This case holder is made of rustproof, powder-coated stainless steel and allows safe securing of Atacama side bags, even under off-road conditions. It is also suitable for use with aluminium cases.
Enduro aluminum engine protector, black.
This robust aluminum enduro engine protector is made of 2 mm thick sheet aluminum and is specially designed for use in off-road terrain. Significantly longer and wider than the standard engine protector, it guards effectively against impacts from rocks and stones, thus protecting the bottom section of the engine against damage. It has a black anodized finish and its holder is made of durable stainless steel.
Adjustable gear shift lever, black.
The gear shift lever is made of black anodized aluminum and is designed specifically for riding while standing in the footpegs. For this purpose, it is fitted with a kick unit that can be adjusted by means of a slot hole. By varying the distance between the kick unit and the footpeg in this way, it is possible to make adjustments for shoe size, and it also improves control when riding in a standing position.
Vario case holder, black.
This case holder is used for attaching vario cases and pillion footpegs to the motorcycle. Thanks to its matt-black anodized surface, its finish perfectly matches that of the vehicle.
Footpeg mount, rear, black.
The shape and dimensions of this footpeg mount correspond with those of the series model; it permits the attachment of pillion footpegs to the motorcycle, has an integrated heel guard and is matt-black anodized.
‘Style’ radiator covers, black.
These radiator covers are made of black powder coated solid stainless steel; they are attached to the trim and round off the design in a particularly athletic and masculine fashion. ‘Style’ radiator covers, black correspond with the serial parts of the Style models Rallye and Exclusive. For this reason, these parts only fit the corresponding models.
Adjustable rider footpegs, black.
These spring-loaded, black anodized rider footpegs offer maximum comfort when sitting. When riding in a standing position, particularly in off-road terrain, the kick plate compresses and uncovers a jagged external contour for additional hold and enhanced vehicle control. Moreover, the setting screw allows the height to be adjusted over three positions. These high-quality, forged-metal rider footpegs also feature a replaceable plastic wear protector and lasered a BMW Motorrad lettering.
