The 2020 BMW R 1250 RT is a touring motorcycle that brings together sophisticated styling, sporty riding characteristics, and advanced features. It’s a different animal than the K 1600 touring bikes from BMW, but that’s a good thing if the K 1600’s aren’t your cup of tea.
The model features a 1,254cc twin-cylinder boxer engine that makes 136 hp and 105 lb-ft of torque. It’s a good, strong engine that BMW uses in a variety of motorcycles. This engine has enough power for touring duties and its boxer design gives you the true BMW experience.
The R 1250 RT is at home on the highway, but it can handle itself around town, too. The motorcycle is sporty looking and comfortable, and it offers a fantastic riding experience. This makes the $18,645 price tag reasonable.
The motorcycle is available in Manhattan Metallic, Mars Red Metallic / Dark Slate Metallic Matte, Alpine White, Blue Planet Metallic / Ivory, and Option 719 Sparkling Bronze Metallic.
