The major upgrade over the previous model is the new larger capacity motor(up from 1170cc to 1254cc) which sees a healthy rise in power and torque. Now at 136HP from 125HP. The other significant update is the new shift cam variable valve timing which instead of being activated by a specific RPM it switches over depending on the load or required power.

The electronic package has also been updated with the inclusion of ASC (automatic stability control) and Hill start assist. The 6.5″ colour TFT display is standard and includes the connectivity package allowing app and smartphone integration

The R1250 Adventure has never been known as a light bike especially with a full tank and panniers it has some serious heft to it. despite this the bike does an extremely good job of hiding its weight especially once on the move, this is mostly due to the fact that the boxer twin sits so low in the frame which lowers the overall centre of gravity.
