NEW 2014 BMW R1200RT

The 2014 BMW R1200RT features a completely new engine. The new boxer engine is the most significant change. It’s the same air- and liquid-cooled 1170cc unit found in the R1200GS, but now fitted with a heavier crankshaft and alternator to add powertrain smoothness while also making the bike harder to stall.

New bodywork with the power-adjustable windscreen is said to offer much better weather protection.

The main frame is stronger, for greater directional stability, and the rider triangle formed by the handlebars, seat and footpegs has been lowered nearly an inch (20mm) to make it much easier for a short rider’s boots to reach the ground.

Peak power is listed as 125 hp at 7,750 rpm, complemented by 92 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. This compares favorably to the air- and oil-cooled boxer in the 2013 BMW R1200RT, which produced a claimed 110 hp at 7,750 rpm and 89 pound-feet of torque at 6,000.
