BMW International is recognising New Zealand as a premium motorbike destination by staging their next GS Trophy in Gods own little slice of heaven. Not only being used as the backdrop of many movies and TV Series, the latest being the Amazon’s Lord of the Rings, but the testing ground for new vehicles and Commercials.  And February 2020 BMW will have teams from all over the world tackle New Zealand’s terrain and landscape.

While the exact routing has not been announced yet, we know for sure it will be a great one.

The New Zealand 2020 event is the seventh edition of the International GS Trophy, held bi-annually with previous editions having taken place in Central Asia (Mongolia/2018), South East Asia (Thailand/2016), North America (Canada/2014), South America (Chile/2012), South Africa (SA, Swaziland, and Mozambique/2010), and North America (Tunisia/2008).
