Maximum vision

Maximum vision

More space, more clarity, more visibility: The new, large 10.25" TFT screen combines all the instruments of the R 1250 RT, plus practical functions such as the navigator and connectivity. The split screen gives you an overview of several functions at the same time, such as displaying the on-board computer in addition to the current speed. The colour display is given extra sharpness and contrast by the robust, tempered and non-reflective glass cover. Your screen is therefore easy to read even in the midday sun and, thanks to the anti-fingerprint coating, it stays that way.

Getting places safely

Getting places safely

Carefree riding pleasure: The new Active Cruise Control (ACC) driving assistance system lets you set the desired speed and the distance to the vehicle in front conveniently by pressing a button on the handlebars. A radar sensor at the front determines the vehicle speed and the distance to the vehicle ahead. If this distance is reduced, the system automatically reduces the speed and re-establishes the selected distance. If the distance is increased, the vehicle will also increase the speed. This way, you can enjoy a relaxed journey over every mile.

Dynamics written across the face

Dynamics written across the face

Compact and slim: The front of the R 1250 RT is sleek and encloses the LED headlights. Together with the more compact body, this creates a dynamic unit with one clear advantage: an even larger field of view. The new windscreen boasts an impressive patented air duct: Forward suction and air movement on the upper body are reduced - so you continue to ride in complete relaxation even after many hours on the bike. The two-part front-wheel cover also underlines the compactness, supports the aerodynamics and reduces dirt on you and your bike - especially in the rain.
