140 of these magnificent motorcycles are being stored in Germany awaiting their departure to meet up with some of the most talented riders across the world in New Zealand to compete in the 2020 BMW GS Trophy.
The GS trophy started back in the early 2000s when South Africa started doing a GS Safari challenge to their adventure riders who purchased a GS. Word was spread quickly and in 2005 BMW decided with the launch of the HP2 enduro, to offer a challenge course as well. It grew from there to what we know now and love as the BMW GS trophy.
In 2020, our qualifiers will head to New Zealand where the scenery will leave little to disappoint. New Zealand offers beautiful single track, gravel and mountain peaks. So far, participants have ridden through Tunisia, South Africa, Patagonia, Canada, Thailand, and Mongolia. Five teams started at the first GS Trophy in 2008 and now a total of 18 teams take part.
Now lets talk about the bike. The BMW F850GS Trophy bike has some added extras just for our qualifiers that you won’t be able to purchase standard on the motorcycle.
