2014 BMW R 1200 R

The all-round model revision of the R 1200 R has produced a truly multi-talented machine. The distinguished design, the newly developed DOHC flat-twin engine and the ingenious chassis with Telelever and Paralever make the R 1200 R a genuine Rock’n’Roll Roadster which will get the most out of every road in terms of riding pleasure.

Visually speaking, the revision of the R 1200 R is once again a real eye-catcher. The purist lines and the even more refined finish demonstrate the powerful character of the machine. New circular instruments, a new higher-quality fork, the new double-butted aluminium handlebars, beautiful new cast wheels, a chrome manifold as standard and much more besides - all this reflects an attention to detail as far as the eye can see. Especially in the Classic version, with is absolute Rock'n'Roll for the eyes with a wide range of visual highlights such as spoke wheels, chrome features and an attractive paint.

The air-cooled 2-cylinder twin engine offers not only a new sonorous, throaty sound at a whole new level but also a genuine innovation: after their appearance in the GS and R models, the two overhead camshafts and four radially arranged valves now see their debut here. What is more, output has been increased to 81 kW (110 bhp), with a maximum torque which has also been raised to 119 Nm at 6,000 rpm. This means that the power unit now accelerates with even greater ease from low engine speeds, performing impressively in all situations on the road and delivery even greater pulling power.

The special equipment features available ex works for this all-rounder range from safety features such as part integral ABS, ASC and tyre pressure control through to comfort and tour-oriented features such as ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment), case holders and windshield. And there are some impressive motorcycle accessories available for the R 1200 R, too, with an extremely light Akrapovic silencer made of titanium, practical system cases and eye-catching chrome cylinder head covers.

The new R 1200 R – a true Rock’n’Roll Roadster.
