The all new R1250GS is here! Today I put it through its paces on the iconic yet brutal roads of the snowy mountains.

There are a few key differences between the old R1200 and the new machine. The biggest standout being the step cam engine and obviously a slight increase in capacity.

The step cam effectively changes the cam timing allowing for an incredible top end increase in torque and power over the 1200 and adds a whole new dimension to the on road section of adventure riding for the new GS.

Look out for the full review in an upcoming issue of AMCN magazine and at
