    The R1200GS range gets two new additions for 2017 – the Exclusive and the Rallye.

    The Exclusive is the road-focused version of the pair, aimed squarely at riders who want their GS for mile-munching duties. Essentially a well-specified but subtle GS, this bike features cast wheels and an ‘Iced Chocolate metallic’ paintjob.

    This is basically an entry-level bike, meaning that no other special parts come with it, leaving owners to spec it up as they see fit.

    The Rallye is the bike for riders who wish to have a more off-road focused GS without having to go for the full bore GSA.

    The GS Rallye comes on cross-spoked laced rims for enhanced off-road ability, and owners can even specify it comes on knobblies if they desire.

    Other features include a Rallye seat, sports screen, radiator and frame guard, and wider endure footrests. Tougher, longer-travel suspension is also an option.
