In 2000, the German motorcycle maker released the BMW R1100RT, a touring motorcycle best suited for those riders who wanted to spend as much time as possible behind the bars and benefit from the latest technology developed by BMW.

Regarding technology, the motorcycle packed the latest developments from the House of Munich, such as the second-generation ABS, Rider Information Display, and the acclaimed Telelever front and Paralever rear suspension system, making it safe, comfortable, and agile.

In addition, the motorcycle accommodated a wide variety of riders with its adjustable seat height and front brake lever. It also packed touring-oriented features, such as an electrically adjustable windscreen, a full fairing, adjustable warm air ducts, panniers, and a dual seat.

The 2000 R1100RT came with the same package as the previous one, offering the same visual, technical, and performance specifications without any significant modifications whatsoever.

In the power department, the 2000 BMW R1100RT had its soul brought to life by a 1,085cc four-stroke twin-cylinder air/oil-cooled boxer engine that delivered an output power of 90 hp with a peak force at 7,250 rpm and 94 Nm (69 lb-ft) torque at 5,500 rpm.

The power generated by the engine was redirected to the rear end via a five-speed manual transmission with a dry single-plate clutch as a final shaft drive, launching the motorcycle to 203 kph (126 mph).
