THE GS TROPHY 2020
“Discover the world. Explore the unknown. Make lasting friendships. And tackle any challenge on your GS. The International GS Trophy is a motorcycle adventure that puts the world at your feet. Teams from all around the world battle it out in intensive daily stages and numerous special challenges and experience the tour of their lives”
Just like in Mongolia, the tracks of the Int. GS Trophy 2020 in New Zealand are still a mystery. However, you should plan your outbound flight to Auckland. Further details as well as your return flight base will be shared with you after the completion of your booking process.
Be prepared to ride through jungle, snow, beaches and the diversity New Zealand has to offer. Challenge your limits and experience great teamwork, which will make this edition of the Follow The Trails an epic off-road journey. A life-changing adventure is waiting for us in Oceania!
New Zealand is a pure GS country. The trails vary between pure off-road riding on volcanic soil and windy roads leading us to the next off-road trails. New Zealand – a GS paradise with endless kilometres of legal off-road tracks – is the perfect location for the Int. GS Trophy 2020 and therefore a genuine Follow The Trails country. A mind-blowing country where rainforests meet glaciers, followed by high mountain peaks, as well as fjord landscapes and endless beaches – the best conditions for riding. Every meter is packed with pure enduro fun.
THE GS TROPHY BIKE!
“The F 850 GS is made to push the boundaries and discover the unknown. Thanks to the two-cylinder in-line engine with 70 kW (95 hp), Int. GS Trophy riders have a robust powerhouse that will win over any terrain. The high torque and lively nature of the F 850 GS turn obstacles into exciting challenges. What’s more: The special GS Trophy decal makes this bike a real eye-catcher in New Zealand.”
