The R 1250 RT is the perfect companion for your tour: Its legendary BMW ShiftCam Boxer engine pulls just as powerfully over country roads as it does over winding mountain passes. Its new front end makes it look more dynamic and slimmer. On the other hand, there is a wide range of features such as the extra-large 10.25" TFT display and Active Cruise Control (ACC) - providing extra comfort on your journey. At the end of the day, you sit back relaxed knowing that the next tour is always the greatest.
TOURS WITH BUILT-IN HIGHLIGHTS
Being on the road, eating up the miles, meeting people, new experiences, exchanging stories: Every tour has highlights. Just like the R 1250 RT. Its many features allow you to ride comfortably, you are always well prepared and can focus entirely on your trip.
Large standard 10.25" TFT colour display
The large and easy-to-read 10.25" TFT screen with full HD resolution is both an instrument cluster and on-board computer. On it, you’ll find the speedometer and rotational-speed sensor as well as map navigation and media.
New front with LED headlights
Looks good and gives you better vision: The new front end with LED headlights as standard emphasises the dynamic lines of the R 1250 RT even more, while the lower body height increases your field of view.
Full power in every speed range with BMW ShiftCam
The BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control system delivers superior performance and – especially in the lower engine speed range – harmonious running, more control and power.
Endless power thanks to wireless charging
Protected against splashing water, your smartphone charges by induction or USB in the handy storage compartment – and you can use the navigator, use the phone and listen to music at the same time.
Simple operation with favourites button
Four buttons give you quick access to functions such as navigation or seat heating. You can easily switch while driving – your attention stays on the road.
Navigation on the 10.25" TFT screen
Know where you want to go? So does the R 1250 RT. And without an additional navigation device. Thanks to the BMW Motorrad Connected App and the interactive map view on the 10.25" TFT display, you’ll be sure to reach the next leg of the tour unhindered.
Smooth travels with Active Cruise Control
Three letters, a big boost to safety: With the new ACC, your bike automatically maintains your desired speed and, via a radar sensor, a safe distance from the vehicle in front.
New audio system with a strong sound
The right sound accompaniment to your tour: The new and stronger amplifier provides rich sound. You can listen to DAB+ radio or music from your smartphone and control it conveniently via the Multi-Controller.
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
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.
Comfort in every dimesion
You’ve chosen your style and colour: Now it’s time to prepare the R 1250 RT even better for your tours. In addition to adaptive headlights and ACC, the Comfort package provides you with comfort enhancing features such as central locking, seat heating and Keyless Ride. In addition, there is a range of optional equipment and optional accessories. Design the R 1250 RT just the way you like it. Your tour, your experience, your machine.
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.
