Style Sport

The Austin Yellow Metallic Matte color scheme in Style Sport is a real eye-catcher. In addition, the bike boasts high-quality materials and surfaces. The Sport inscription, large colored graphics and high-quality stainless-steel components complement the extravagant sport tourer's look, which is characterized by visual lightness. 

Select Package

The Select Package hones the sporty qualities of the machine while at the same time offering control benefits. The equipment features includes Ride Modes Pro with ABS Pro, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Dynamic Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA) and Cruise Control, Gear Shift Assist Pro as well as cruise control and keyless ride.

Ride Modes Pro

The Pro riding mode options now also include the Core Screen Sport, HSC Pro with automatic brake activation, Engine Braking Control EBC, and Dynamic Braking Assist DBA.

Shift Assist Pro

The Shift Assist Pro allows shifting up and down in almost all load ranges and engine speed ranges without clutch control. The assistant thus ensures noticeably reduced shifting times, a relief of the clutch hand and thus more comfort, dynamics and riding pleasure.

ABS Pro

With the innovative ABS Pro, the motorcycle remains more controllable for the rider even when braking in an inclined position. Since the sensor system measures also the lean angle, the brake pressure can be controlled, even when cornering. This reduces the motorcycle's tendency to straighten up, meaning that the rider can keep it more precisely on course.

Dynamic ESA

With Dynamic ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment), a more stable and thus improved handling is achieved. The system automatically regulates the damping action and spring preload of the telescopic forks and spring struts to match the riding conditions and load thus offering maximum comfort and helping provide optimal traction even when leaning into corners. 

Sport seat

The Sport seat with its 3/4" higher and narrower rider's seat supports a sporty riding style thanks to its active seat position. It particularly suits tall riders. The comfortable knee angle offers the biker noticeable improvements in seating comfort and thus even more carefree miles even on long journeys. 

Keyless Ride

Thanks to Keyless Ride, the ignition key can now remain in the pocket. The system is extremely convenient and allows the rider to start their machine simply at the push of a button. The steering lock and fuel filler cap can also be unlocked in this way. The motto is: just get on and ride off! 

More touring comfort for two.

The R 1250 RS is perfect for a trip for two. With possibilities to increase the storage space and other individualization options, you and your companion can stow everything for your trip. You can ride faster, but you'll never lose your bearings with the right additional equipment such as the Navigator VI. Advanced riding modes and other options let you arrive at your destination carefree and comfortably.
