BMW R 1200 R Overview
Auto manufacturers were quick to latch on to this idea and thus was born the naked roadster category of motorcycle. BMW is one such manufacturer & they are globally well known for their prowess in building rugged, reliable and contemporary motorcycles. For years the marque has been establishing several noteworthy benchmarks and has come to be known as one of the most advanced bike manufacturers in the world. BMW have a lot of products in their range but since we are talking nakeds, we will focus on the R 1200 R
BMW R 1200 R Engine & Transmission
Mighty impressive figures indeed but wait we are forgetting about the equally capable electronics as well alongwith the digital engine management with twinspark ignition & overrun fuel cut off. This engine unit is further given potency by the 6 speed constant mesh transmission and the single plate hydraulic dry clutch unit which helps get the power to the wheels via shaft drive instead of chain drive.

BMW R 1200 R Performance and Handling
The bike is ably supported by its lightweight cast aluminium wheels that have 120/70 tyres up front on a 3.50 X 17" rim and 180/55 tyres at the rear on a 5.50 X17" rim. The bike does provide ABS as standard and the good part is that it can be switched off as and when wanted. Braking duties up front are taken care of by 320 mm floating twin discs with fixed four piston callipers. The rear brake features a 265 mm floating single rotor twin piston calliper setup. The brakes do an excellent job of throwing the anchors as and when required.
