BMW R 1200 RT Overview

BMW R 1200 RT 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 and 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 RT Mileage
The BMW R 1200 RT has optimised combustion for better fuel economy and a 25 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 RT 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.
