2021 BMW R1250RS Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Sportiness meets ergonomics.

The R 1250 RS combines sportiness with touring ability. The completely revised front, including engine spoiler, emphasizes the overall style of the Sport Tourer. The symmetrical layout of the twin headlights gives the R 1250 RS a balanced and modern look. The handlebar geometry ensures a sporty sitting position.

Full power ahead.

BMW ShiftCam is the name of the innovative technology that lets you accelerate faster from any speed. This is achieved by means of a variable camshaft control system. The increase to 136 hp gives you more power and, with the capacity expansion to 1254 cc, the possibility to make another sprint in the fast lane. The increase in torque (max 105 lb-ft) is noticeable in every rpm range, delivering the typical boxer punch an pure riding pleasure.

LED MAIN HEADLIGHT.

BMW Motorrad has been a pioneer when it comes to motorcycling safety for decades. Thanks to its innovative strength, the manufacturer quickly established itself as a trendsetter in this field, and will continue to achieve new benefits when it comes to motorcycling safety in the future. The latest example for BMW Motorrad’s innovative strength in this field is the full-LED headlight with integrated daytime riding light, which is available for the first time in series production motorcycle- the R 1200 GS. This LED main headlight illuminates the road with a hitherto unmatched light clarity as the only one of its kind in the world. The LED for the high-beam headlights is vastly different and has a strong light intensity with its two glass lenses. Furthermore, the optional accessory also has a tail lamp, which provides an even better rear view with its two bars.

The automatic transition between daytime riding light and low-beam headlight is done automatically depending on the setting in the instrument cluster menu.

With the daytime riding light switched on, the motorcyclist is significantly more visible and is therefore much safer. Added to this is the striking look of the horizontal “U”, which – as with the light rings on the K 1600 models – are an unmistakable identifying feature of the new GS.
The light unit has two LEDs each for low and high-beam, and four additional LEDs for the daytime riding light and the position light. These are fastened to a central heat sink made of die-cast aluminium. An axial fan is positioned behind the heat sink. Another air rectifier directs the warm air to the window glass and in so doing creates an air circulation in the headlight. This air circulation allows the headlight to de-thaw and also makes an active contribution towards de-icing the headlight lens in the winter.
