BMW R 1200 R Overview

The naked roadster bike concept came about after people riding faired bikes that had had falls reverted to some good old fashioned ingenuity and replaced the cracked and broken fairings on their expensive bikes with minimalist lighting and turn indicators.

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

The flat twin air/liquid cooled boxer engine on the R1200 R is a DOHC, electronic fuel injected unit displacing 1170 cc with a bore X stroke ratio of 101X 73 mm and a compression ratio of 12:1. Featuring a central balancer shaft and 4 valves per cylinder this unit manages to churn out 110 hp peak power @ 7,500 rpm and 119 NM of peak torque @ 6,000 rpm.

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 Mileage

The BMW R 1200 R has optimised combustion for better fuel economy and an 18 ltr. Fuel tank that helps the bike to return approximately 19-21 kmpl in the city with highway use seeing economy go up to 25 kmpl.

BMW R 1200 R Performance and Handling

The R1200 R is a particular favourite amongst tourers since the bike is highly customisable for long distance highway touring. The engine coupled with the brilliantly rigid vibe free 2 piece front & rear frame (it uses the engine as a stressed member) ensure that the bike is very relaxed even at triple digit highway speeds. Another memorable BMW legacy is the Telelever and Paralever suspension setup. Featuring a central spring strut at the front and a cast aluminium single sided swingarm at the rear mated to a strut dynamically adjustable for preload rebound and damping the suspension gives the R1200 R much needed agility through tight curvy corners as well as long highway sweepers.

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.
