2018 BMW R 1200 RS Review

Sport Touring

Riding dynamics coupled with vacationing suitability - in the very highest level: that is the R 1200 RS. With its powerful engine and steady suspension, the sport travel bike offers more than only a massive quantity of riding enjoyment. As a result of its relaxed, sporty seats position and its ideal weather and wind protection, the bicycle provides an amazing ride sense when traveling quickly and riding across country roads in sporty style.

Performance meets design

The contemporary notion of a lively blend of sport and touring bike is demonstrated visually also, by way of a half fairing comprising symmetrical headlamps derived from two generations of this RR. The elegantly shaped barbell unit with connected forged aluminum segment perfectly combines function and durability.

The elegant and fast travel companion.

The sport travel bike derives its energy from a result signal of 125 bhp delivered through an air/liquid-cooled 2-cylinder 4-stroke fighter motor with 2 overhead spur gear driven camshafts and a counterbalance shaft. To be able to guarantee stability on each state road, ASC (Automatic Stability Control) is featured as standard. Engine manners "Rain" and "Road" - also standard - supply a perfect riding experience.

Equipment and accessories add the perfect finishing touch.

The wide array of optional gear goes from saddle bag mounts and bag rack to rail control along with the handy "Keyless Ride". The machine saddle bags along with the practical best case around off the sport touring bicycle: perfectly harmonized with the ergonomics and incorporated at the motorcycle total look as always, they offer you a degree of travel comfort you wouldn't typically expect of a sports tourer.
