The BMW R 1250 R

More versatile and expressive as ever.

The R 1250 R is designed for a dynamic appearance. Equipped with the Boxer engine – with a maximum torque of 105 lb-ft, the reworked engine delivers more power than ever before. The variable camshaft control BMW ShiftCam is innovative technology that offers optimum performance in every engine speed range. During a relaxed cruise or a sporty tour, experience the pure thrill of riding along with the typical punch of the Boxer engine.


Your roadster, your style.

The newly designed engine spoilers and radiator cover bring a fresh look. The basic color of the R 1250 R is as timeless as the roadster itself: Black Storm Metallic emphasizes the unadulterated look of the motorcycle. Whatever style you choose, you'll enjoy your roadster and enjoy every tour in your own way.

Black Storm Metallic

For a classic look, the basic version is painted in Black Storm Metallic – front-wheel cover, front spoiler, tank side trim and the rear side panels receive this subtle paintwork. Many details in black complement the overall look of the roadster: main and rear frame, brake calipers, radiator cover and the seat.

Light White / Racing Blue / Racing Red

This combination accentuates the sporty potential of the bike.

Style Exclusive

Your Roadster cuts a fine figure on every tour with the Style Exclusive. All trim parts are painted in the color Mineral Gray. The golden brake calipers, the agate gray main frame, radiator cowls and stainless steel tank cover emphasize its elegance – for a unique appearance.
