The 2023 BMW R 1250 R combines a powerful 1,254 cc engine with a plethora of riding aids found in BMW’s top-of-the line motorcycles. These riding aids all have three letter acronyms and include Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS Pro), Hill Start Control (HSC) and Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) as standard! These features eclipse many of its European rivals. There are still a few optional add-ons that are worth checking into. For example the heated seats and adaptive headlight.
So how does it compare to the rest of BMW’s 2023 line-up? With top-of-the line engine and rider enhancements, it is a very capable scalpel for slicing up twisty roads or even the occasional track day. With the powerful twin front discs, there’s no shortage of stopping power for when speeds increase. Keeping things in control are the front upside-down telescopic fork and BMW’s single-sided swing arm with Paralever and WAD shock absorber. What if you need to add some touring, look no further than the accessories catalog to add some luggage for a weekend getaway.
