Video: BMW HP4 vs. BMW R 1200 GS

There\'s an old adage in performance: it\'s not how much power you have, it\'s how much power you can use.

In the right hands, the big GS can be ridden to extraordinary limits. Take for example this video, pitting the 125 hp BMW R 1200 GS against what ought to be no contest: the track-bred, fire-breathing, 194 hp HP4 variant of the BMW S 1000 RR.

2012 BMW Motorrad GS Trophy Day 1 Recap

I have to admit, when I learned that this year\'s BMW Motorrad GS Trophy was traveling through Patagonia <em>and</em> that 15 of the event\'s participants were journalists, I was more than a little envious.
