2013 BMW R1200R Review

2013 BMW R1200R

The all-round model R 1200 R is a truly multi-talented machine. The distinguished design, the well-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. Circular instruments, a high-quality fork, the double-butted aluminum handlebars, beautiful cast wheels, a chrome muffler 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 finish in black and white.

The air-cooled 2-cylinder twin engine offers a sonorous, throaty sound. After their appearance in the GS and R models, the two overhead camshafts and four radially arranged valves now see their debut here. 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 machine accelerates with even greater ease from low engine speeds, performing impressively in all situations on the road and delivers even greater pulling power.

The special equipment include safety features such as part integral ABS, ASC and tire pressure control, comfort and tour-oriented features such as ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment), case holders and windshield. There are some impressive motorcycle accessories available for the R 1200 R, too, with an extremely light Akrapovic exhaust made of titanium, practical system cases and eye-catching chrome cylinder head covers.

The R 1200 R is an example of perfect synergy between the retro and the ultra modern. The unique level of everyday touring practicality combined with the typical compact roadster design will place the R 1200 R back in the limelight. With the aid of technology used in the BMW’s sport motorcycles working in harmony with a legendary tradition of outstanding roadsters and tourers, the R 1200 R boasts a luxurious 110 hp which is delivered with comfort and prestige.

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