Derived from the boxer unit on the BMW R 1200 GS, the new engine produces a peak output of 125 hp at 7,750 rpm and its maximum torque of 125 Nm (92 lb-ft) at 6,500 rpm. The new R 1200 RT features a new, continuous main frame to give it even greater directional stability. 

The semi-active suspension BMW Motorrad Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) is optional. The new R 1200 RT is equipped as standard with two riding modes “Rain” and “Road”, along with Automatic Stability Control (ASC). 

The optional extra Riding mode Pro, meanwhile, includes the additional riding mode “Dynamic” plus the Hill Start Control function. The sporty nature of the R 1200 RT can be experienced to the full in “Dynamic” mode, while Hill Start Control helps to make light work of stopping and starting on an uphill slope. 

A multifunctional instrument cluster with TFT colour display is featured, the BMW Motorrad Pro onboard computer and innovative audio controls.

Spy video of the 2014 Bmw R 1200 RT


These four camouflaged 2014 RT prototypes were seen in Southern France. The new liquid cooled Bmw boxer engine is evident once more, due to the pipes exiting from the bottom of the cylinders. 

Despite the camo pattern, some differences compared to the 2013 model can be spotted, regarding the fairing and the nose.
