BMWR 1200 GS xDrive Hybrid

BMW's R 1200 GS xDrive Hybrid is the first all-wheel drive travel enduro with hybrid all-wheel-drive, a bike that can literally go anywhere and do anything. It's the first bike of its kind to hit series production and features a air/liquid cooled flat twin that produces a total of 170 hp.

The xDrive all-wheel-drive system can be operated in both two-wheel and all-wheel-drive modes with just the flip of a switch. The bike uses technology from their BMW i cars, allowing the bike to store energy during braking and can then be utilized to complement the gas engine and the all-wheel-drive system.
