Striking at the models from 2003-2007 is that the GS has a double fender. Namely, a small, barely visible plastic fender, and above that, a large beaked copy in the same way as the rest of the motor. The R 1200 GS was thirty kilograms lighter than its predecessor. Weight is saved by the exhaust system, power train, frame, tank and battery. The R 1200 GS is like his predecessors an excellent tourer.
