Integrated into the stretched flyline are a comfort seat with low seat height and an ergonomically designed touring tank with distinctive knee grip area – for even more comfort.

    More equipment. More comfort.

    More equipment. More comfort.

    The special equipment of the R 1200 RT enables even simpler handling while at the same time providing a higher level of comfort. For example, the electronic suspension, Dynamic ESA, adapts the damping characteristics to changing surface conditions. The shift assist Pro enables the rider to shift up and down without using the clutch. The Pro riding mode includes the "Dynamic" option and guarantees maximum riding fun for sporty, dynamic riders. You also get ABS Pro and Hill start control here. Thanks to this, starting on hills is child's play.

    Keyless ride offers even more comfort. The system makes the mechanical key superfluous. It enables you to start the engine at the press of a button, if the key is in the vicinity of the vehicle – e.g. in your jacket pocket. Also optionally available: a central locking system which locks both cases by remote control, a cruise control function and much more besides.

    Optional Equipment
    • The special equipment "Pro riding more" also includes the "Dynamic" riding mode and the Hill Start Control function. The "Dynamic" mode allows you to discover the sporty side of the R 1200 RT. The Hill Start Control system aids confident starting on a hill.

    • On the R 1200 RT, Pro the shift assist has been specially attuned for the requirements of touring. As an aid to shifting, it enables shifting without operating the clutch both for shifting up and shifting down. It therefore offers riders significantly increased comfort as well as dynamic.

    • The semi-active BMW Motorrad Dynamic ESA chassis provides optimal riding dynamics in all situations: for the highest level of riding safety, performance and comfort. The suspension is automatically adjusted to the detected conditions depending on the riding condition and the rider's riding manoeuvres. A significant additional gain in safety of the Dynamic ESA is that when braking and accelerating, the riding position remains virtually unchanged: for even more directional stability.
