This bike is now in perfect running condition.  I am only selling because I now have a newer model. This is your chance to have the perfect off-road tourer.

The bike has just had a complete engine rebuild by BMW Donford Motorrad, and the engine is running sweetly.  It is tuned to perfection.

All major parts have been maintained or replaced, and the only damage currently is cosmetic (some scratches on the tank, rev-counter and normal wear and tear).


  • Mileage: 250 000km​
  • Model: 2001 BMW R1150GS
  • Price: R45 000 onco

    • ABS has been removed, as well as the catalytic converter (i.e. you are in charge of this bike, and you can use any petrol available when travelling up country).
    • Speedo was replaced and reads R75k under the actual mileage.
    • The left heated handgrip does not work.
