BMW Bike: Black on Black on Black
The BMW R 1200 GS, which was launched earlier this year with an upgrade in performance (thanks to such things as two overhead camshafts per cylinder; camshafts in a radial arrangement) so that the output from the 1,170-cc Boxer engine is up 5% to 110 hp and there is an increase in maximum engine speed from 8,000 to 8,500 rpm will soon become available in a special edition.
Come January 2011 there will be the R 1200 GS Triple Black.
Not only will the body be painted Sapphire Black Metallic, but BMW Motorrad has finished some additional components in keeping with this dark theme. Specifically:
- Black cross spoke wheels
- Asphalt grey metallic swing arm, rear frame, and valve covers
- Black front fork and engine
- Black seat
Sort of seems like the kind of bike the Dark Knight would ride.
