Built for touring.

Anticipation and excitement are the most beautiful companions on any tour. With the start of your R 1250 RT, you can feel the superior qualities of the Twin-cylinder Boxer engine. Its performance and enhancement in character of running fascinate in every engine speed range: the variable camshaft control BMW ShiftCam ensures a smooth unleashing of pow-er throughout the entire engine speed range and boosts your control. Thanks to more cubic capacity and more power with more efficiency, your riding pleasure intensifies mile upon mile. The high torque curve, the elasticity and the irresistible power with fewer gear changes quickly become indispensable companions.

BMW Motorrad Spezial.

You now have even more options to make your BMW R 1250 RT your bike: whether you go for one of the design-defining Option 719 billet packs parts Classic and Storm or the HP billet packs, all three are very exclusive and high-quality ex factory individualisation options. In addition, you can adapt your bike with the new Option 719 wheels Classic and Sport to even better suit your own personal taste – also ex factory.

Hill Start Assist HSC as standard.

The standard hill start assist HSC makes starting on slopes easier. Because with the help of the handbrake lever, the rear brake can be easily applied.

HP sports silencer.

The HP sports silencer gives your R 1250 RT a robust sound and a sporty look. The silencer is made entirely of titanium.

Dynamic Brake Control.

DBC assists you in emergency braking by counteracting the often unwanted gas opera-tion in such an exceptional situation: a control intervention reduces engine torque and at the same time the system increases the braking power at the rear wheel. This results in increased safety and optimal use of braking power to stabilise your bike and shorten the braking distance. For a feeling of supreme confidence when touring.
