2006 BMW K1200R Naked

The secret was out on September 20th, 2004:


A well kept secret! German motorcycle manufacturer, BMW Motorrad, briefly displayed their latest naked motorcycle, the BMW K1200R ! Based on the new K1200S, this replacement of the popular R1150R will be available mid next year. The K1200R was only shown for 30 minutes and then withdrawn from the show. It will not be shown to the public.

BMW has shown the new K1200R to the motorcycle press assembled in Munich at Intermot. A naked version utilizing the same engine, frame and suspension technology as the recently introduced K1200S

the new roadster is expected to have more than 160 horsepower and weigh less than 500 pounds dry. Don’t expect to see the K1200R available as a production machine in the U.S. until the latter part of 2005, as a 2006 model.
