R 1250 R

The new BMW R 1250 R.

The new R 1250 R is designed for a more dynamic appearance. This is mainly due to the all-new Boxer engine – with a maximum torque of 143 Nm, the reworked engine delivers more power than ever before. Here, the variable camshaft control BMW ShiftCam is the innovative technology that offers you the optimum performance in every engine speed range. During relaxed cruising or a sporty tour, you experience the pure thrill of riding and the typical punch of the Boxer engine at all times.

More boxer punch.

Right from the word go, you can feel the superior qualities of the new Boxer engine: the variable camshaft control system BMW ShiftCam ensures a masterful and even power delivery in every engine speed range. With a capacity increase to 1254 ccm and a maxi-mum torque of 143 Nm, the new engine offers a performance boost that is available at any time and with which you seek to catapult yourself out of even the tightest of corners with even more pressure.

This is new.

Headlight Pro.

The LED daytime riding light is activated during the day as a substitute for the main headlight either automatically via a light sensor or manually by pressing the daytime riding light button. When darkness falls or when entering a tunnel, the system switches automatically to the main headlight.

BMW Motorrad Connected.

Connect your smartphone to your bike via Bluetooth. The 6.5-inch TFT display shows you everything about your motorcycle and offers you in conjunction with the smartphone app additional features such as navigation, music and telephony.

In addi-tion, you can adapt your bike with the new Option 719 wheels Classic and Sport to even better suit your own personal tastes or refine it with the Option 719 Star-dust metallic paint. The dark brown Option 719 seat and the HP Sports silencer also add another tasteful accent.

The aluminium riders footrests are adjustable in three posi-tions and offer not only ergonomic qualities, but also maxi-mum comfort. The high-quality billet packs of the exclusive Option 719 can be adapted to a sporty riding style or differ-ent rider heights, thus ensuring even better control, for ex-ample, in an inclined position.

Option 719 foot lever, adjustable

The exclusive Option 719 foot levers Classic are milled from anodised aluminium and are individually adjustable. With the right set up, the foot levers can also be operated better and more sensitively when riding while standing up during off-road use.

Rider’s seats

High rider’s seat in black:
The 30 mm higher rider’s seat in black is particularly suitable for tall riders. The comfortable knee angle provides the rider with a noticeable increase in seating comfort and thus even more carefree kilometres, especially on long-haul routes.

Rider’s seat low, black:
The rider’s seat in black, which is 30 mm lower, makes mounting your bike easier and improves accessibility to the ground. This makes it easier to manoeuvre and control the motorcycle.

Rider’s seat Sport, black:
The rider’s seat Sport in black is higher and narrower than the standard seat and supports a sporty riding style thanks to its active seat adjustment. With a seat height of 840 mm and a rider step length of 1,875 mm, it is particularly well suited for tall riders.

Comfort passenger seat

Thanks to a broader seat area and additional padding, the Comfort passenger seat provides noticeably greater seating comfort and even more carefree kilometres for the passen-ger. The particularly comfortable passenger seat can be combined with all rider’s seat variants.

Tinted Sport windscreen

The tinted Sport windscreen with scratch-resistant coating noticeably relieves the upper body of wind pressure and provides a sporty accent. The classic roadster look remains intact, but it can also be used to make fast motorway routes or longer tours even more relaxed.


BMW Navigator VI

The multifunctional Navigator VI makes route planning child’s play. The system with 16 GB flash memory and five-inch touch screen always points the right direction. Thanks to the circular polarisation filter (CPOL), the waterproof dis-play is easy to read even in direct sunlight. The high-resolution screen in a smartphone-like housing provides all essential information and thus the overview needed in every situation. Numerous additional functions make planning and tour an exciting experience. Routes can be created to reflect personal preferences in order to enjoy journeys along wind-ing and quiet side roads. In unknown terrain, the „round trip“ option is a good choice as it reliably guides the rider at the end of the tour back to the starting point. The Bluetooth connection to the BMW Motorrad communication system and the optional smartphone link app enable a pure multimedia experience on the go: navigation instructions, phone calls, streaming music and retrieving weather forecasts or traffic jam information are no problem. Navigation preparation adds further functions such as „My Motorcycle“, and the multi-controller on the handlebars offers an alternative control option. If the rider has opted for pre-installed map data, this is always up to date thanks to lifelong, free map updates.


Engine protection bars

The robust engine protection bars made of polished stain-less steel reliably protects the area around the cylinder against damage without restricting the tilt angle. The sturdy tubular construction can withstand even rough impacts and can prevent major falls on asphalt.
