BMW Motorrad presents the R 1300 GS Trophy Competition and F 900 GS Trophy Marshal Bikes for the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy 2024 Namibia.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – June 20, 2024… When a total of 22 national teams - including six women's and 16 men's teams - with a total of 60 riders compete for the coveted trophy at the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy 2024 Namibia from September 15-20, 2024, they will rely on the new BMW R 1300 GS Trophy Competition Bike as they cross Namibia.

The R 1300 GS Trophy Competition Bike has been developed exclusively for this event and is equipped with accessories to excel in the competition. The large GS, with its powerful boxer engine, is fitted with handlebar risers, engine protection bar, skid plate and frame guard, adjustable gear shift and brake levers, GS Vario rider footrests, enduro hand levers, headlight protection guard and white handguard extensions. The aggressive off-road tires on black cross-spoke wheels and solo seat are designed to cope with the difficult terrain of the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy 2024 Namibia in East Africa.
The R 1300 GS Trophy Competition Bike is very close to the R 1300 Style GS Trophy available at your BMW Authorized dealer.
Although the BMW Motorrad Competition Bike is not available for sale in its exact form, it is very closely based on the R 1300 GS Style GS Trophy model with the optional Enduro Package Pro, with the exception of a few details such as the stickers. The Racing Blue metallic color says it all: with its red and white stripes and lettering, combined with the matte white metallic painted rear frame, the R 1300 GS Style GS Trophy literally whets the appetite for sporty off-road riding - just as the 22 teams will experience on their R 1300 GS Trophy Competition Bikes in September.
In the spirit of high off-road adventure, the Style GS Trophy models is equipped with standard radiator guards to protect against damage. The robust black cross-spoke wheels are part of the Style GS Trophy equipment package. They can be ordered in optional gold color as well.
The BMW F 900 GS Trophy Marshal Bike - the sporty, mid-size, off-road BMW GS for the GS Trophy Marshal Team.
The GS Trophy Marshals, who will guide the participants safely through Namibia's challenging terrain, will be able to rely on their own unique and very capable off-road motorcycles. Based on the new F 900 GS, the F 900 GS Trophy Marshal Bike is BMW Motorrad's premium offering in the mid-size Adventure segment. With 105 hp and a significantly wider range of abilities thanks to greatly enhanced off-road qualities and a drastic weight reduction of 22 lbs. compared to its predecessor, the sporty, F Series representative of the GS family - like the R 1300 GS Trophy Competition Bike – will feel at home in Namibia.
