A true roadster.

The R 1200 R is a roadster the purest sense of the word – reduced down to the essentials: an engine, two wheels and a body consisting of the tank and seat. The R 1200 R has a rigid and muscular design, its lines run dynamically onto the low-set front and on towards the front wheel. The upside-down telescopic fork based on the pattern of the S 1000 RR not only gives this all-rounder a striking appearance but also ensures stability and precise handling. Just as striking: the modern interpretation of the classic round headlights. You can equip these with a daylight riding light with LED technology is desired.
With the sharply drawn lines along the fuel tank and the seamless transition from the seat to the protruding rear, this roadster has a look that perfectly matches the way it rides. The entire silhouette is toned and nevertheless slim: for a modern and contemporary comfortable riding experience. The luggage frame in grid tube look encircles the centre of the design: the classic boxer engine. It stands for the promise and the promise of pure riding pleasure.
