The BMW R 1250 R is a naked European bike that shares the iconic boxer-style engine BMW is famous for.
The 1254cc engine puts down 105 lb-ft of torque through the Cast aluminum single-sided swing arm. Dual 320mm Brembo front brakes with BMW Motorrad Integral ABS are on tap to reign things back in again. A nice-looking 6.5” TFT screen pairs easily to your phone with BMW Motorrad Connectivity, giving access to riding modes, navigation, and media.
The BMW R 1250 R joins other 2022 models with the Option 719 package. From exclusive paintwork and a host of milled parts to forged wheels, this is all about factory individualization.
