BMW Motorrad will be replacing their best-selling, world-dominating R 1250 GS for model year 2024 with an all-new R 1300 GS. BMW released a lot of information on the new GS in late September 2023 and we anticipate the first versions of the R 1300 GS making their way to the U.S. early in calendar year 2024.

Given the incredible popularity of the boxer-powered GS platform, we anticipate demand outpacing supply for these bikes well into spring of 2024.

If you've thinking about getting a new R 1300 GS, now is the time to put a fully-refundable $250 deposit down to secure one of our first R 1300 GS's.

With three BMW Motorrad dealerships on the West Coast, SoSo Cycles has multiple options for you to pick up your new 1300 GS. Please identify the location you would like to work with and we'll have one of our sales professionals reach out to confirm the deposit and answer any questions you may have.

Below is a list of colorways, equipment packages and options that BMW will eventually be available on the R 1300 GS. Please select your preferred colorway when confirming your pre-order.

We are logging color preferences but not offering full build customization at this time because BMW builds and ships 'Dealer First Supply' units without getting our input on how to spec the bikes so we can't guarantee that we will be able to get you a bike in the color you want and the equipment you want right off the bat. But we will do our best to match your requests with what we get from BMW.

If you're really wanting your R 1300 GS built a certain way, we can modify a bike once BMW gives us access their 'Order Bank'. Bikes that require pre-production modifications will arrive 2-3 months later than 'Dealer First Supply'. If you're wondering what the heck we're talking about just give us a buzz and we'll help clarify things.
