BMW’s lineup of GS bikes has consistently featured corresponding GSA models, and the R 1300 GSA is the latest addition to this esteemed family. Based on the new R 1300 GS platform, this rugged adventurer undergoes significant enhancements.

Key Features and Specifications

The R 1300 GSA boasts several pioneering features. It is the first BMW motorcycle to incorporate an automatic clutch system as standard, offering riders the convenience of BMW’s Automated Shift Assistant (ASA). This system eliminates the need for manual clutch operation during gear shifts and stops, though riders can still manually control gear changes via the gear lever. Starting from 2025, BMW plans to offer the ASA system as an option on the R 1300 GS as well.

Powering the R 1300 GSA is the familiar liquid-cooled, horizontally opposed 1,300cc engine found in the GS model, delivering 145hp at 7,750rpm and 149Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Notably, the GSA variant features a sizable 30-litre fuel tank, providing an 11-litre increase over the standard GS, thereby extending its touring capabilities.
