The current GS series which is considered to be particularly sporty and fit for travelling has been extended with the new BMW R1200RS. The new RS is a sports tourer with two-cylinder boxer engine and perfectly suited for the winding country road as well as for comfortable and extensive journeys.As already on the R 1200GS, R 1200GS Adventure, R 1200RT and the new R 1200R now the current R1200RS comes up with the DOHC engine, too. The new BMW Motorcycle sports tourer has an output of 92 kW (125 hp) at 7,750 rpm and develops its peak torque of 125 Nm at 6,500 rpm.The exhaust gases are guided through a 2-in-1-exhaust system with a sporty, steeply angled rear silencer. The combination of a new modified airbox, newly shaped air intake snorkels and a centrally positioned radiator give the bike a delicate appearance.The standard equipment range includes the two riding modes “Rain” and “Road”. Another item of standard equipment is the Automatic Stability Control (ASC). With special equipment riding mode - Pro - you get additionally the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) as well as the riding modes Dynamic and User.Especially for the new BMW R1200RS a tubular steel bridge frame has been developed that involves the two-cylinder boxer engine perfectly. By the upside-down fork at the front and the EVO Paralever at the rear the R1200RS resembles a dynamic sports tourer. The speed is controlled via an analog speedometer. In addition, a TFT display provides a variety of information.The electronic suspension Dynamic ESA which contributes to an even more dynamic driving can be selected as an optional extra. On the one hand the two damping properties "Road" and "Dynamic” increase the safety and on the other hand the comfort is improved enormously.The aerodynamically designed semi-fairing with dual headlights contributes to a new look.
