It’s the ultimate in street bikes, the perfect illustration of BMW’s expertise in this sector. The Bavarian manufacturer has invested the full scope of its know-how into the design of the R1200 RT.
A real street bike, the R1200 RT was made for racking up the miles. Its entire design was conceived for the comfort of bikers and their passengers. The lowered seat lets you get on the motorcycle easily despite the size of its tank (6.6 gallons).
High-quality shock absorbers are adjustable, and thus perfect for every riding use and style. Wide handlebars let you ride for miles on end without feeling tired because of bad posture.
The dash features various configurations, allowing you to adapt to any number of situations: alone or with a passenger, loaded up or without bags. There’s no doubt about it, this street bike is also packed with technology and innovation.
The 1200 RT, with its Rain mode, adapts to bad weather in the blink of an eye, while its heated handles will make you want to devour miles of concrete even when it’s freezing outside.
Getting around town is child’s play, despite the 1200 RT’s 3-foot width. The 1170cc twin cylinder, inspired by the BMW 1200 GS, drains the machine perfectly. The motorcycle takes off with precision, and its engine demonstrates amazing resilience, which is admirable for a motorcycle of this caliber.
Despite its weight and the caliber of its engine, the 1200 RT is a master at gas consumption, and can go almost 200 miles on a full tank, which only reinforces its adventurous qualities.
The perfect tire for all street bikes. The Pilot Road 4 is a performance powerhouse, and one of the most successful tires produced by Michelin in recent years. Its unique tread provides it with extremely efficient braking, even on wet surfaces.
Thanks to a new silica-based rubber compound, it lasts longer and guarantees reliable grip no matter the conditions, from the hottest to the very coldest.
