In 1995, after the RS, GS, and Roadster models, BMW fulfilled the RT community for new technology with the launch of the R 1100 RT tourer motorcycle.

The 1995 BMW R 1100 RT, powered by the same engine as the RS, featured a modular system for the chassis with the Telelever and Paralever suspension package.

The fairing design featured the BMW Motorrad aerodynamic experience combined with practical functionality and excellent long-distance comfort. The three-way height-adjustable seat, the adjustable windscreen, and the wind and weather protection of the fairing significantly increased driving comfort.

To top it off, the model had a special duct in the fairing that redirected warm exhaust air from the engine to the hand which increased, even more, the riding comfort on cold days. With a relatively low curb weight of 282 kg (622 lbs) and a top speed of 196 kph (120 mph), the RT tourer was raised to a new level in the touring segment with good driving characteristics and performance.

In terms of power, the RT’s heartbeat was set by a 1085cc flat-twin engine with a power output of 90 hp with a peak at 7,250 rpm and 95 Nm (70 lb-ft) of torque available at 5,500 rpm.

The bike came with standard features such as dual 305 mm front disc brakes coupled to a single 276 mm disc on the rear, a steel frame, a full fairing, an adjustable windshield, side panniers, a rear luggage rack, a dual seat, die-cast aluminum wheels, and an analog and digital instrument cluster.
