BMW R 1200 RT Overview

BMW are globally well known for their prowess in building rugged, reliable and contemporary motorcycles as they are for building quality for wheelers. 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. We can't forget that it was BMW indeed who put the first ABS system on a motorcycle and since then it has been emulated by other manufacturers throughout the world. BMW has also played an active role in developing touring machines and the BMW R1200 RT is one such machine that enjoys place of pride in the BMW range. When we talk about touring, we imagine a motorcycle adept at chewing up long distances without straining the rider or the engine too much. The BMW R1200 RT does that and much more and it does that the BMW way, in typical understated style and performance.

BMW R 1200 RT Engine & Transmission

Touring bikes require torquey engines that carry the bike along on the torque wave thus ensuring that the engine is unstressed but at the same time ensuring that there is enough power available on tap should the rider choose to hustle the bike. 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@ 7,750 rpm and 120 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 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 R1200 RT 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 and 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 RT 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.
