The basic version of the new 2011 BMW R 1200 R emphasizes the sporty all round character with new cast light alloy wheels.

The motorcycle is available in mat metallic smoky gray, metallic light grey, or metallic red apple: three color schemes representing a dynamic, elegant, and modern interpretation of the roadster.

The front suspension of the R1200R trusts in the BMW Telelever in conjunction with a new fork structure.

Its high quality, technical grace and the enlarged diameter of the standpipe (from 35 to 41 mm) contribute decisively to shaping the face of the new R 1200 R.

The rear suspension takes the form of the tried and tested single arm with BMW Paralever.

The motorcycle 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.

BMW Motorrad has also developed for the new R 1200 R an extensive ranges of optional equipment and tailored optional accessories for further individualization.
