The new 2011 BMW R 1200 R Classic continues the legacy roadster tradition. The Classic motorcycle utilizes a new 1170cc boxer engine with DOHC valves that is derived from the BMW HP2 Sport.
BMW has raised the Maximum torque to 119 Nm at 6000 rpm and the power to 81 kW (110 hp) at 7750 rpm. Maximum engine rpm has increased from 8000 to 8500 rpm for an even wider utilizable speed range.
The R 1200 R Classic is presented with wire spoke wheels for a touch of nostalgia as it pays homage to the classic roadsters with metallic sapphire black paintwork in conjunction with a center stripe in plain alpine white extending over the tank and front wheel fender.
The BMW Classic motorcycle deliberately goes for a refined contrast and emphasizes components like the Telelever, drivetrain, cylinder head covers, frame, and fork with silver.
Their classical, refined quality also finds expression in the completely chromium-plated exhaust system and the mirrors with a chromium look.
The R 1200 R Classic can be fitted optionally with electronic suspension adjustment ESA. This serves to vary the spring base and the suspension’s pressure and rebound stages at the rear wheel, and the suspension’s rebound stage at the front wheel.
The maximum safety standard is ensured by the established and proven brake system, which can be fitted in the factory with the optional BMW Motorrad integral ABS (in the partially integral version) and Automatic Stability Control (ASC).
