5 riding Modes

The new R 1200 GS Adventure offers five riding modes. Two come standard with the new Adventure--Road and Rain. The other three: Dynamic, Enduro and Enduro Pro, are optional.

The 5 Riding Modes of the Motorcycle

  • Rain
  • Road
  • Dynamic
  • Enduro
  • Enduro Pro

To ride in Enduro Pro mode, a coding plug must be inserted into the wiring harness (located under the rider seat, next to the DME).

Each mode varies settings for the ride-by- wire throttle response, ABS and ASC intervention, as well as how the Dynamic ESA varies compression and rebound damping during riding.



Rain Mode Rain Mode gives the rider soft and smooth engine response when riding on roads with difficult grip conditions, but lets the rider to make use of the full torque and power.

The ASC is tuned for early intervention to provide maximum safety when accelerating.

ABS is geared for on-road use.

If the bike is equipped with the optional Dynamic ESA, damping of the front and rear suspension struts is set to soft. NOTE: ABS and ASC may be manually deactivated by the rider in any of the modes. If the encoding jumper is in place, both systems will remain deactivated even after the ignition has been switched off.



Road Mode NOTE: ABS and ASC may be manually deactivated by the rider in any of the modes. If the encodcing jumper is in place, both systems will remain deactivated even after the ignition has been switched off.

In Road Mode, the ASC provides optimal traction on dry asphalt. The ABS is tuned for on-road use.



Dynamic Mode Dynamic Mode, ASC characteristics are sharper for this specific profile. It allows experienced riders to make minor drifts. The ABS is turned on for on- road use, and is combined with a more dynamic and direct engine throttle response.

If the Dynamic ESA is part of the motorcycle, the damping will be more taut. NOTE: ABS and ASC may be manually deactivated by the rider in any of the modes. If the encoding jumper is in place, both systems will remain deactivated even after the ignition has been switched off.



Enduro Mode In the Enduro Mode, the ASC will allow for increased slip at the rear wheel to make minor off-road drifts possible.

The ABS tuning is geared here for riding on loose surfaces such as gravel roads using on- road tires and accordingly higher levels of slip.

The optional Dynamic ESA is tuned for high traction. NOTE: Enduro Mode was designed for off-road riding only. Enduro Mode NOTE: ABS and ASC may be manually deactivated by the rider in any of the modes. If the encoding jumper is in place, both systems will remain deactivated even after the ignition has been switched off.



Enduro Pro Mode NOTE: Enduro Pro Mode was designed for off-road riding only. ABS and ASC may be manually deactivated by the rider in any of the modes. If the coding plug is in place, both systems will remain deactivated even after the ignition has been switched off. For ambitious Enduro riders, the Enduro Pro mode is offered in conjunction with an additional coding plug. This mode offers both a spontaneous engine response and is at the same time tuned to cater to the use of knobbies.

The ABS function for the rear wheel is deactivated in this mode whenever the rider steps on the foot brake lever.

Dynamic ESA is tuned for maximum traction.

ASC is geared for professional Enduro operation and allows for a distinctly higher slip.
