The new R 1200 R: Inspiration for the future

The recently presented BMW Concept Roadster provides an initial foretaste of the motorcycle of the future - but the new R 1200 R is the ideal of a motorcycle for the present day. A powerful all-round roadster that really does enter new territory in terms of dynamic performance and design.

To reflect its visual revolution, the new R 1200 R is available in two style variants for the first time - in addition to the basic version, these are: exclusive and stylish Thunder grey metallic, classic and timeless Cordoba blue and athletic Light white. Fitted with a 125 hp boxer engine, the roadster has more than sufficient power reserves.
As a genuine all-rounder the new R 1200 R can also be adapted perfectly to every rider and every route with its variety of seat alternatives - for example individual seats for highly relaxed riding pleasure.

Another modification to the predecessor model is now an upside down telescopic fork based on the pattern of the supersports bike S 1000 RR. Progressive suspension setup combines precise handling and stability to form an unbeatable package of maximum safety and exceptional riding fun - even when fully loaded.

The new R 1200 R – an athletic powerhouse with a striking design. Experience it for yourself: To special of R 1200 R
