The BMW R 1250 RT

Powerful machine so you arrive relaxed at your destination

The R 1250 RT is the perfect companion for your tour: Its legendary BMW ShiftCam Boxer engine pulls just as powerfully over country roads as it does over winding mountain passes. Its new front end makes it look more dynamic and slimmer. On the other hand, there is a wide range of features such as the extra-large 10.25″ TFT display or available Active Cruise Control (ACC) – providing extra comfort on your journey. At the end of the day, you sit back relaxed knowing that the next tour is always the greatest.

Being on the road, eating up the miles, meeting people, new experiences, exchanging stories: Every tour has highlights. Just like the R 1250 RT. Its many features allow you to ride comfortably, you are always well prepared and can focus entirely on your trip.

Maximum vision

More space, more clarity, more visibility: The 10.25″ TFT screen is our largest ever and combines all the instruments and adds practical functions such as navigation and connectivity. The split screen function gives you an overview of several functions at the same time, such as displaying the on-board computer in addition to the current speed. The color display has an extra-sharp appearance and contrast by the robust, tempered and non-reflective glass cover. The screen is easy to read even in the midday sun and, thanks to the anti-fingerprint coating, it stays that way.

Going places more comfortably

Carefree riding pleasure: The newly-available Active Cruise Control (ACC) driving assistance system lets you set the desired speed and the distance to the vehicle in front conveniently by pressing a button on the handlebars. A radar sensor at the front determines the vehicle speed and the distance to the vehicle ahead. If this distance is reduced, the system automatically reduces the speed and re-establishes the selected distance. If the distance is increased, the vehicle will increase speed and resume the speed setting. This way, you can enjoy a relaxed journey over every mile.

Comfort in every dimension

You’ve chosen your style and color: Now it’s time to prepare the R 1250 RT even better for your tours. In addition to adaptive headlights and ACC, other comfort-enhancing features such as Ride Modes Pro, heated seats and Keyless Ride. In addition, there is a range of optional equipment and optional accessories. Design the R 1250 RT just the way you like it. Your tour, your experience, your machine.

Dynamics written across the face

Compact and slim: The front of the R 1250 RT is sleek and encloses LED headlights. Together with a more compact body, this creates a dynamic unit with one clear advantage: an even larger field of view. The new windscreen boasts an impressive patented air duct: Forward suction and air movement on the upper body are reduced – so you continue to ride in comfort even after many hours on the bike. The two-part front-wheel cover also underlines the compactness, supports the aerodynamics and reduces dirt on you and your bike – especially in the rain.
