Built for touring.
Anticipation and excitement are the most beautiful companions on any tour. With the start of your R 1250 RT, you can feel the superior qualities of the Twin-cylinder Boxer engine. Its performance and enhancement in character fascinate at every engine speed range: the variable camshaft control system, BMW ShiftCam, ensures a smooth unleashing of power throughout the entire engine speed range and boosts your control. Thanks to more cubic capacity and more power with more efficiency, your riding pleasure intensifies mile upon mile. The high torque curve, the elasticity and the irresistible power with fewer gear changes quickly become indispensable companions.
Dynamic Brake Control.
DBC assists you in emergency braking by counteracting the often unwanted gas operation in such an exceptional situation: a control intervention reduces engine torque and at the same time the system increases the braking power at the rear wheel. This results in increased safety and optimal use of braking power to stabilise your bike and shorten the braking distance. For a feeling of supreme confidence when touring.
