Overview

Description

Sport Touring is given a new face.



Riding dynamics coupled with touring suitability - at the very highest level: that's the R1200RS. With its potent engine and stable suspension, the sports touring bike offers more than just a huge amount of riding pleasure. Thanks to its relaxed, sporty seating position and its perfect wind and weather protection, the bike offers an entirely new ride feel when travelling fast and riding along country roads in sporty style.



Performance meets design.



The modern concept of a dynamic blend of sports and touring motorcycle is demonstrated visually too, by means of half fairing featuring symmetrical headlamps derived from two generations of the RR. The elegantly shaped handlebar unit with attached forged aluminium section perfectly combines function and ergonomics.



The elegant and fast travel companion.



The new sports touring bike derives its supreme power from an output of 92 kW (125 bhp) delivered by an air/liquid-cooled 2-cylinder 4-stroke boxer engine with two overhead spur gear driven camshafts and a counterbalance shaft. In order to ensure stability on every country road, the highly active, electronically regulated suspension and ASC (Automatic Stability Control) is featured as standard. To provide an optimum riding experience, two ride modes, "Rain" and "Road" are also included as standard equipment.



Equipment and accessories add the perfect finishing touch.



The extensive range of optional equipment goes from case holders and luggage rack to cruise control and the convenient "Keyless Ride". The new system case and the practical topcase consummately round off the sports touring bike: perfectly harmonised with the ergonomics and integrated in the motorcycle's overall look as always, they offer a level of travel comfort you would not normally expect of a sports tourer. The optional equipment riding modes Pro contains ABS Pro and Dynamic Brake Light (homologation in progress).
