Sports Touring at Its Very Finest.

The BMW R 1200 RS has a perfect blend of riding dynamics coupled with touring performance - at the very highest level. With its potent engine and stable suspension, this sports touring bike offers more than just a huge amount of riding pleasure. Thanks to its relaxed, sporty seating position and its perfect wind/weather protection, the bike offers an entirely new ride feel when travelling fast or along country roads.     

Performance Meets Design.  

A dynamic blend of sports and touring motorcycle by means of its half fairing featuring symmetrical headlamps derived from two generations of the RR. The elegantly shaped handlebar unit with attached forged aluminium section perfectly combines function and ergonomics.
