R 1250 RT

Starting from £14,870



The BMW R 1250 RT gives you freedom, and more of it than ever before.

The variable camshaft control system BMW ShiftCam ensures superior running smoothness and comfort. For swift cornering and immense torque on the straights. The new Twin-cylinder Boxer engine and its 100 kW (136 HP) 1250 ccm engine let you effortlessly experience the countryside.

And your RT is unique thanks to new individualisation options: it's your tour, it's your bike. 


Built for touring.

Anticipation and excitement are the most beautiful companions on any tour. With the start of your R 1250 RT, you can feel the superior qualities of the Twin-cylinder Boxer engine. Its performance and enhancement in character of running fascinate in every engine speed range: the variable camshaft control BMW ShiftCam ensures a smooth unleashing of power throughout the entire engine speed range and boosts your control. Thanks to more cubic capacity and more power with more efficiency, your riding pleasure intensifies mile upon mile. The high torque curve, the elasticity and the irresistible power with fewer gear changes quickly become indispensable companions. 

Dynamic Brake Control.

DBC assists you in emergency braking by counteracting the often unwanted gas operation in such an exceptional situation: a control intervention reduces engine torque and at the same time the system increases the braking power at the rear wheel. This results in increased safety and optimal use of braking power to stabilise your bike and shorten the braking distance. For a feeling of supreme confidence when touring. 

For your needs.

You can upgrade your BMW R 1250 RT with exclusive, high-quality and design-oriented optional extras from BMW Motorrad Option 719 and turn it into your bike. BMW Motorrad accessories also will help you find the right luggage solution to meet your requirements and your needs – whether you are travelling in distant countries or on your home country road.
