Combining enhanced control with dynamic performance, never ending fun whilst riding is in store once you get on the BMW R 1200 RT. Evolving from a classic touring bike, the R 1200 RT utilises the latest cutting edge technology from BMW Motorrad, with a familiar design that accentuates the flowing lines of its fairings and chassis to create a truly symbiotic relationship between rider and machine. Comfort is key, providing an enjoyable riding experience over longer distances whilst still giving a sense of thrill and excitement, with a cleverly engineering engine and throttle response on top of innovative suspension. With a relaxed riding position, a tall wind visor is installed to reduce wind noise with extended handle bar fairings to reduce chill factor to your hands, the upright stance of the motorbike means that both rider and pillion are sat comfortably for every journey.
Technology is a key contributor to the versatility of the R 1200 RT. Different pre-set riding modes have been created to provide additional safety, such as Rain and Road, which can be operated by a simple press of a button which adjust the dynamics of the chassis and power delivery for optimum operation. The integrated computer system performs countless calculations every second to make sure suspension dampening, braking and throttle response are all matched to the current road surface and situation. The result is a highly enjoyable journey that ensures maximum traction and safety under braking. In addition, the electronic stability system built into the R 1200 RT works to maintain traction and balance when changing direction and riding position whilst adapting to changing surfaces. Shift Assistant Pro allows the rider to change gears without having to operate the clutch which is ideal for those longer journeys and there is even the option for a more spirited riding profile, delivered through the Dynamic mode which can also be operated by the touch of a button. Cruise control is also available.
All in all, the R 1200 RT provides a smooth journey, with comfortable seating and technology designed to make your ride fun and simple. 125 bhp is produced by the R 1200 RT's boxer engine with a maximum torque of 125 Nm at 6,500 RPM and is capable of over 200 km/h meaning you have all the power you need for however you want to reach your destination.
