Sporty touring in the fast lane
Each tour is determined by two factors: the time and the distance. With the new BMW R 1250 RS you can get more track out of every tour. The rich 143 Nm torque and 100 kW (136 hp) of the new boxer engine accelerate you even faster to your cruising speed. The innovative BMW ShiftCam technology offers you more torque and impressive elasticity over the entire speed range. So you can rocket to an impressive sprint on the asphalt in every riding situation. The redesigned front gives the full-LED headlight a fresh, sporty look and turns aerodynamically into the wind. This way, you can ride fast and comfortably at any time. One thing is certain – no matter how much road you leave behind in a certain time: with the R 1250 RS your riding pleasure grows with every metre you ride.
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 100 kW (136 hp) gives you more power and, with the capacity expansion to 1254 ccm, the possibility to make another sprint in the fast lane. The increase in torque (max. 143 Nm) is noticeable in every rpm range, so that typical boxer punch and pure riding pleasure are guaranteed.
