The new BMW R 1250 RT, the new BMW R 1250 R and the new BMW R 1250 RS – Touring, Roadster and Sports Touring in optimised form and in a new drive dimension.

For more than 35 years, the flat-twin boxer engine in the BMW Motorrad RT, R and RS models has stood for powerful and reliable propulsion when it comes to setting off on an extended tour or a long-distance journey. With the extensively further advanced boxer engine with BMW ShiftCam technology, the latest boxer models now also achieve a whole new level of performance, culture and efficiency.

 

For more than 25 years, BMW Motorrad has used four-valve technology, combined with electronic fuel injection and closed-loop catalytic converter technology in order to achieve the best possible power and torque delivery, efficiency and environmental compatibility.

 

Further advanced boxer engine with BMW ShiftCam Technology for an additional increase in power across the entire engine speed range, reduced emission and fuel consumption levels, optimised running smoothness and refinement.

With the extensively further advanced boxer engine, the new R 1250 RT, R 1250 R and R 1250 RS models not only achieve a whole new level of power and torque. It was also possible to significantly optimise refinement and running smoothness – especially within the lower engine speed range. What is more, the new engine offers improved emission and fuel consumption levels as well as a particularly satisfying sound. BMW ShiftCam Technology, previously seen for the first time in the serial production R 1250 GS and R 1250 GS Adventure models, enables variation of the valve timings and valve stroke on the intake side. In addition, the intake camshafts are designed for asynchronous opening of the two intake valves, resulting in enhanced swirl of the fresh, incoming mixture and therefore more effective combustion. Other technical changes to the engine relate to the camshaft drive – now taken care of by a toothed chain (previously a roller chain) – an optimised oil supply, twin-jet injection valves and a new exhaust system.

 

Two riding modes, ASC and Hill Start Control as standard.

There are two riding modes available as standard in order to be able to adapt the motorcycle to individual rider preferences. The standard Automatic Stability Control ASC ensures a high level of riding safety due to the best possible traction. The set-off assistant Hill Start Control is likewise a standard feature in all models, enabling convenient set-off on slopes.

 

Riding Modes Pro, featuring additional riding modes, Dynamic Traction Control DTC, ABS Pro, Hill Start Control Pro and Dynamic Brake Assistant DBC, available as an optional equipment item ex works.

"Riding Modes Pro" is now available as an optional equipment item, featuring the additional riding mode "Dynamic” and “Dynamic Pro” (configurable), and Dynamic Traction Control DTC. DTC enables even more efficient and safe acceleration, especially when banking. ABS Pro offers even greater safety when braking, even in banking position. The new Dynamic Brake Control DBC provides additional safety when braking, also in difficult situations, by avoiding unintentional accelerator activation. By means of intervention in the engine control, drive torque is reduced during braking so as to make full use of the braking power at the rear wheel. This keeps the motorcycle stable and shortens the braking distance.

 

Electronic suspension Dynamic ESA "Next Generation" with fully automatic load compensation, now also for the R 1250 RT.

With the optional equipment item BMW Motorrad Dynamic ESA “Next Generation”, damping automatically adapts to the situation according to riding state and manoeuvres, and there is also automatic compensation in all load states. This allows finely tuned adaptation of the motorcycle to riding states, achieving optimum damping comfort and a very stable ride response – this is now also available for the R 1250 RT.

 

LED headlamp for the R 1250 RS as standard. In addition to this, the LED daytime riding light is available as an optional equipment item for the R 1250 RS, as well as the R 1250 RT and the R 1250 R, which have halogen headlamps.

 

Connectivity: Multifunctional instrument cluster with 6.5 inch full-colour TFT display offering many features as standard.

The three new boxer models now have the equipment feature Connectivity as standard including a 6.5-inch full-colour TFT screen, on the R 1250 RS and R 1250 R models, and a 5.7-inch TFT colour screen on the R 1250 RT. In conjunction with the standard BMW Motorrad Multi-Controller, this means the rider can access vehicle and connectivity functions particularly swiftly and conveniently.

 

The R 1250 RT’s TFT colour screen is supplemented with an analog speedometer and rev counter.

 

BMW Motorrad Spezial – high-quality customisation features as optional equipment items ex works.

BMW Motorrad Spezial offers a range of iconic customisation features that enhance both performance and value, available as optional equipment items ex works. The focus is on harmonious integration in the vehicle as a whole, use of the very highest-quality materials, elaborate manual workmanship and characteristic attention to detail.

 

The new R 1250 RT can be additionally enhanced with Option 719 wheels Classic or Sport, an exclusive seat and one of two Spezial paint finishes. The new R 1250 R and R 1250 RS can also be equipped with the Option 719 Classic or Sport Wheels as well as the exclusive paintwork and the Option 719 seat. The new R 1250 R is a dynamic naked bike character in one basic colour, two style variants and Option 719 Spezial finishes. On the other hand, the new R 1250 RS has a sport and touring character in one basic colour, two style variants and Option 719 Spezial finishes.

 

An HP sports silencer is likewise available for the three new boxer models.
