The redesigned front gives the full-LED headlight a fresh, sporty look and turns aerodynamically into the wind. This way, you can ride fast and comfortably at any time. One thing is certain - no matter how much road you leave behind: with the R 1250 RS your riding pleasure grows with every metre you ride.
