BMW’s R 1200 RS is an all-new machine for 2016, with the latest liquid-/oil-cooled boxer motor, along with a sophisticated electronics package (with optional upgrades), new tubular steel bridge frame, inverted forks, new instrument cluster, new fairing with adjustable windshield, and distinctively modern styling.ABS (with radially mounted Brembo calipers in the front), Automatic Stability Control, and two riding modes are standard. Aggressive riders can add the Pro feature set that adds Dynamic Traction Control and two additional riding modes.
Also optional is Dynamic Electronic Suspension Adjustment, as well as Gear Shift Assistant Pro. Add bags, and this is a potent sport-touring mount.Read our BMW R1200RS Review.Visit our Motorcycle Buyer’s Guide.
