We are pleased to present the ultimate blend of a sports and touring motorcycle: the R 1200 RS. Thanks to its air/liquid-cooled 2-cylinder 4-stroke boxer engine with two overhead, spur gear driven camshafts and a counterbalance shaft, the sports touring bike delivers an impressive 125 bhp and 125 Nm at 6,500 rpm.
And there's plenty to get excited about in terms of its visual appearance: the half fairing featuring symmetrical headlamps derived from two generations of the S 1000 RR strikingly demonstrates the sporty flair of the R 1200 RS. Wind and weather protection is at the very highest level of course, with a windshield that can be simply height-adjusted by hand. Available in the characteristic paint finishes Cordoba Blue non-metallic and Light White non-metallic, the optional LED daytime riding light finally perfects the bike's instant recognition from a distance: here comes the new BMW sports touring motorcycle. But the best thing of course is to experience the R 1200 RS for yourself.
Demo bike available from the 21st of May , why not take one for a try.
XR: a cross between an enduro and a sports bike.
Here's the perfect BMW motorcycle for all those who want the dynamic performance of a sports motorcycle, the versatility of an enduro and the comfort of a touring bike. The new S 1000 XR combines the very best of these worlds to create something completely new: the first ever adventure sports bike made by BMW Motorrad; perfect for everyone in search of sporty flair that knows no bounds.
The GS helmet has just been put through the ultimate test, being worn by BMW Off Road Skills Chief Instructor Simon Pavey and his son Llewellyn during the 2015 Dakar race.
Simon Pavey, Dakar racer and BMW Off Road Skills Chief Instructor, said: “Both my son Llewellyn and I wore the new GS helmet for this year’s Dakar. It was a bit of a gamble trying an untested product, but comfort and fit was really good for both of us. The liner and padding material is quite different to other off road helmets but it really works. Ventilation throughout the helmet and breathability around the mouth piece are really good, while the vent closures are both aesthetically pleasing and easy to use."
In the beautiful Bavarian mountains, the biggest BMW party on the planet is underway: Motorrad Days.
