GS Joins The Infotainment Generation

If you found yourself bored while riding your GS – if that is even possible – BMW may have a solution to some of your difficulties. Beginning with the 2018 models, a TFT display will be an option to replace the standard instrument cluster on the R1200GS and GSA models. The 6.5 inch screen will offer navigation, cell phone connectivity, music  and other info you may need (speed, tach, temperature – you know, the actual motorcycle riding stuff). However, should you really want to tackle touring at a higher level, BMW still recommends that you install the Motorrad Navigator GPS unit which comes with the enviable new features of “Avoid Main Roads” and “Winding Roads”. The downside is your cockpit will look a little Star Trek-ish with a combined 11.5 inches of computer display space.
