BMW Motorrad has started accepting pre-bookings for the R 1250 GS in India for a token amount of INR 3 lakh. The R 1250 GS is expected to carry a premium of INR 1.5-2 lakh over the outgoing model, the R 1200 GS. For reference, the BMW R 1200 GS was sold at INR 15.70 lakh for the Standard model and INR 17.10 lakh for the Adventure variant (both ex-showroom India). The upcoming BMW 1250 GS will be available in the same two options.
