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 15 to 20 September 2024, they will be able to rely on a superior workhorse as they cross Namibia: the BMW R 1300 GS Trophy Competition Bike.

The R 1300 GS Trophy Competition Bike has been developed exclusively for this competition, which has been held on the basis of the R 1300 GS since 2008 and is equipped for all eventualities thanks to special accessories. The large GS with its powerful boxer engine is fitted with a handlebar riser, engine protection bar, underride and frame guard, adjustable gear and brake levers, GS Vario rider footrests, enduro hand levers, headlight protection guard and white handguard extensions. The coarse-tread off-road tyres on the black cross-spoke wheels and the single seat bench are designed to cope with the sometimes difficult terrain of the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy 2024 Namibia in East Africa.

With the exception of a few details, the R 1300 GS Trophy Competition Bike can be configured on the basis of the R 1300 GS Trophy.
Although the BMW Motorrad Competition Bike is not available for sale in exactly this form, it is based on the R 1300 GS Trophy model variant, with the exception of a few details such as the stickers, the large underride guard and the gearshift lever. The basic Racing Blue metallic colour says it all: with its red and white stripes and lettering, combined with the matt white metallic painted rear frame, the R 1300 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 expertise, the Trophy is equipped ex works with radiator guards to protect against damage, for example from stone chipping. The robust cross-spoke wheels are also part of the off-road equipment. They come with black rims as standard and are also available in gold as an ex-works option.

The BMW F 900 GS Trophy Marshal Bike - the sporty, off-road BMW GS for the middle range as the vehicle for the GS Trophy Marshal Team.
The GS Trophy Marshals, who will guide the participants safely through Namibia’s challenging terrain, can also rely on a high level of off-road expertise. Based on the
F 900 GS, the F 900 GS Trophy Marshal Bike is BMW Motorrad’s premium offering in the mid-range touring enduro segment.

With a full 77 kW (105 hp) of power and a significantly wider range of uses thanks to greatly enhanced off-road qualities and a drastic weight reduction of 14 kg compared to its predecessor, the sporty representative of the GS models in the F Series - like the
R 1300 GS Trophy Competition Bike - also feels at home in Namibia.
