Beyond these packages, BMW also adds supplementary LED lighting, side protection bars for the engine, a titanium Akrapovič exhaust terminal with a carbon end cap, and special Ultimate Edition badges.
Alessandro Salimbreni, BMW Motorrad Italy’s general manager, said: “Ultimate means Definitive and that’s what inspired the design of this bike. The Triple Black style brings out the strong character and sporting qualities of the BMW R 1250 GS. The Shadow I and Shadow II aesthetic packages make the combination of the bike and accessories even more precious. The hand-crafted components in anodized aluminum reveal a passion for detail and create exclusive value. The Option 719 branding underlines the appeal and quality of the bike. The Ultimate Edition is the bike for everyone who wants to own an exclusive piece of BMW Motorrad history.”
The recommended retail price is 26,900 euros, or approximately £23,807. This includes costs of registration, pre-delivery, first service, 4-year BMW Motorad BEST4 warranty, and 5 years roadside assistance.
