BMW Triple Black GS Adventure

By Kevin Ash - 25/09/2012

BMW has unveiled an all black special edition of the top selling GS Adventure called the Triple Black (even though it has two shades of grey...).

The colours might not sound exciting but black sells on most bikes, and it does look good in a dark and menacing kind of way. Components usually left in silver or plain metal, such as the forks, sections of engine, rear subframe, swingarm and cylinder covers, are instead sapphire black, granite grey or asphalt grey.

A Triple Black version of the stock R1200GS went on sale in 2010, the Adventure adds its huge 7.3 gallon (33 litre, 8.7 gallon US) tank, taller and better screen, wire-spoked wheels, engine bars and longer travel suspension.

The bike is available now in UK dealerships at £11,730.
