Ride with even more authority.

The R 1200 RT-P sets the benchmark for authority motorcycles not only in the United States but around the world. Boasting a generous 110 hp Boxer engine with a low center of gravity, a dynamic Telelever front suspension and full fairing weather protection, the R 1200 RT-P offers amazingly precise handling. BMW EVO brakes with partially Integral ABS II mean quick stops on gravel, concrete, and even wet road surfaces. The new R 1200 RT-P also features completely new LED emergency lighting, with programmable flashing and sirens. Twenty-three liter saddlebags provide ample storage space for officers, and with a sturdy stainless steel front protection bars, the R 1200 RT-P also offers maximum protection. Handlebar and cockpit areas offer mountings for many accessories, such as moving radar, video systems, map lights, notepad holders and electrical outlets. With an electrically- adjustable windshield for weather protection, a maintenance-free gel battery, a 39 months, 60,000 mile limited warranty, and the R 1200 RT-P is the premiere option for law enforcement agencies. Now those bad guys don’t stand a chance.

Features and Benefits

New Emergency Light Concept
The new R 1200 RT-P features a completely new LED emergency lightingconcept developed by BMW and Code 3 PSE. The new system combinesall currently desired emergency lighting into optimally focused compactLED light modules. These modules accommodate an additional 45 degreefront LED module that blankets the front quadrants in emergency light.

Together with an integrated wiring harness and programmable flash controlmodule, the new system can provide any current flashing sequence /switching combination through settings on the programmable flasher. Example: If the motor will be used in California, program the flasher forsteady-burn left front LED light, with no change in the LED light or the wiring. If the motor is sold or operated in a different venue later, change the program flasher for 49 state operation.

The rear light module combines rear and side facing LED emergency lights, together with rear-facing brake/tail LED and side turn signal LED lights. Additional rear facing LED emergency lights can be installed and powered in conjunction with the rear facing lights, or controlled by photo-eye to disable the lights during the dark to reduce glare at night / low light
The programmable flasher can provide 12 flash patterns, with wiring splitting the motor between left and right side for alternating flash patterns. Light sequencing begins with rear, programmable rear and front side lights, as well as front and 45 degree front lights. A rear cancel switch allows riders to disable the rear lights while retaining the side and front lights –
usually used for protective service details. The programmable flasher also provides for a primary and secondary flash pattern, so during code 3 operation, the emergency lights will display the primary pattern until the siren is activated, at which time the flasher changes to the alternative pattern for 7 seconds after each siren tone change. This feature known as InterClear provides a visual and audible alert to those nearby.

Note: the lights pictured are prototype units that are not fully optimized for visual or structural quality. Production units will provide precise accurate light location.

New BMW Police Saddlebags

BMW heard the requests of motor officers and developed a completely new saddlebag for police motors. The new 23 liter saddlebags are easily removable for service maintenance or cleaning (removes with two bolts). The lid is hinged at the front with an easy-to-operate rear latch (while seated on the motor) that is glovefriendly and can be locked with the ignition key.

Optional saddlebag liners will also be available along with an optional luggage net in
the lid for small item / rain gear storage. Replaceable color painted side panels can be repaired / replaced without having to replace the entire saddlebag, reducing the cost of accident damage repairs.

Special front protection bars made of stainless steel have integrated BMW / Code 3 siren speaker mounting, providing maximum protection during accidents. Integrated speaker mounting reduces weight, yielding a clean professional appearance.

New Police Speedometer
The new highly accurate easy-to-read police speedometer displays has a large numerical
display in the center of the information display, and through a locking button on the
right handlebar, can display that “locked” speed (33 mls/h), retaining that reading until
the next time a speed is locked in the display.

The new R 1200 RT-P cockpit surrounds the rider with useful information to perform their job with precision. All switch functions at your finger tips, proven handlebar controls and easy-to-ready information displays keep riders informed and in control. All switches and primary electrical connections now are completely waterproof to ensure long, trouble-free life.

BMW provides mountings / adaptations for commonly requested components such as moving
radar, video systems, map lights, notepad holders, electrical outlets, etc. Indicators lights integrated into the back of the right hand front emergency light module place information within the rider’s field ofvision.

New electrically-adjustable windshield has been optimized to provide a wider range of coverage & protection for all riders, with particular attention paid to coverage with open-face helmets.

Maintenance has never been easier. Basic engine maintenance intervals are 6,000 miles for oil service and adjustments, gearbox oil changes are at 24,000 mile, rear drive and fork oil are lifetime. Fuel filter is also now lifetime, again reducing maintenance even further.

Batteries are BMW gel maintenance-free 19 Ah batteries that recover well from deep-cycle
discharges. Service has been improved by a new protection bar system that provides full access to the front engine cover, as well as easier seat and fuel tank removal, easier access to batteries as well as protection bar removal.

The R 1200 RT-P is now covered by a 39 months, 60,000 mile limited warranty.

Engine Summary: The two cylinder flat twin Boxer engine is BMW’s famous, time-tested, signature design.

The result is a supremely reliable, flexible engine with a low center of gravity and like all twins, excellent torque characteristics. The exposed cylinders offer excellent air cooling and if it’s durability, performance, and bulletproof all-around handling you want, this is your powerplant.
