BMW R1250RS 2018-2022

The BMW R1250RS was a faired motorcycle part of the R series in BMW's range, presented at the 2018 EICMA Show. Like other R version machines in the series, the R1250RS was powered by a boxer engine.

In 2018, the German motorcycle manufacturer launched the BMW R1250RS, a faired motorcycle that provided long-distance comfort. Unlike the R1250R, which offered minimal body coverage, the RS model had its body covered.

In the aesthetic department, the RS model had standard features, such as two LED headlights, a medium-sized windscreen, a two-piece dual seat with pillion grab rails, a two-into-one exhaust system, a single-sided swingarm, and 10-spoke lightweight wheels.

The bike was built on a two-section frame comprised of a main structure with a bolt-on rear frame, packing a 45 mm upside-down fork on the front and a single-sided aluminum swingarm with a BMW Motorrad Paralever unit on the rear, offering excellent handling capabilities.

In the braking performance, the machine packed two 320 mm floating brake discs with four-piston calipers on the front wheel and a 276 mm disc with a dual-piston caliper on the rear wheel, providing excellent stopping power.

As for the power figures, the 2018 BMW R1250RS had installed a 1,254cc four-stroke tow-cylinder air/liquid-cooled boxer engine that delivered an output power of 136 hp at 7,750 rpm and 142 Nm (105 lb-ft) torque at 6,250 rpm.
