Maximum vision

Maximum vision

More space, more clarity, more visibility: The 10.25" TFT screen is our largest ever and combines all the instruments and adds practical functions such as navigation and connectivity. The split screen function gives you an overview of several functions at the same time, such as displaying the on-board computer in addition to the current speed. The color display has an extra-sharp appearance and contrast by the robust, tempered and non-reflective glass cover. The screen is easy to read even in the midday sun and, thanks to the anti-fingerprint coating, it stays that way.

Going places more comfortably

Going places more comfortably

Carefree riding pleasure: The newly-available Active Cruise Control (ACC) driving assistance system lets you set the desired speed and the distance to the vehicle in front conveniently by pressing a button on the handlebars. A radar sensor at the front determines the vehicle speed and the distance to the vehicle ahead. If this distance is reduced, the system automatically reduces the speed and re-establishes the selected distance. If the distance is increased, the vehicle will increase speed and resume the speed setting. This way, you can enjoy a relaxed journey over every mile.

Dynamics written across the face

Dynamics written across the face

Compact and slim: The front of the R 1250 RT is sleek and encloses LED headlights. Together with a more compact body, this creates a dynamic unit with one clear advantage: an even larger field of view. The new windscreen boasts an impressive patented air duct: Forward suction and air movement on the upper body are reduced - so you continue to ride in comfort even after many hours on the bike. The two-part front-wheel cover also underlines the compactness, supports the aerodynamics and reduces dirt on you and your bike - especially in the rain.
