2020 BMW R 1250 R

2020 BMW R1250 R

The 2020 BMW R 1250 R is a naked standard motorcycle that brings together sophisticated styling, sporty riding characteristics. It’s a different animal than the R 1250 RT from BMW, but that’s a good thing if the R 1250 RT is a little too touring focused.

The model features a 1,254cc twin-cylinder boxer engine that makes 136 hp and 105 lb-ft of torque. It’s an engine design that BMW uses in several motorcycles in its lineup. This engine has enough power around town, country road, and highway duties, and its boxer design gives you the true BMW experience.

The R 1250 R is at home on the open road, but it’s also a fantastic urban machine. The motorcycle is sporty looking and comfortable, and it offers a unique naked roadster riding experience. This makes the $14,995 price tag reasonable.

The motorcycle is available in Black Strom Metallic, Style HP, Style Exclusive, Option 719 Sparkling Bronze Metallic.
