About R 1200 RS

BMW R 1200 RS is a commuter bike available in 2 variants in india. Its lowest version starts from a price of ₹15,54,985 (ex-showroom) and the top version from a price of ₹16,54,985 (ex-showroom). BMW R 1200 RS generates 121.6 bhp of power and 125 nm of torque from its 1170cc engine. With both rear and front disk brakes, the top variant of BMW R 1200 RS also has an anti-locking braking system. This 236 kg bike is available in 2 colours.

The R1200 RS is BMW Motorrad's sporty streetbike offering for those who prefer a faired motorcycle. It generates slightly less power than its streetfighter sister, the R1200 R, but it also weighs just 236kg, which helps its performance. It is powered by the same 1170cc boxer twin engine that powers a lot of BMW bikes. It sports conventional hardware like upside down front forks and plain-vanilla rear monoshock suspension. Of course, being a BMW, it has a ton of electronics to help the rider keep the rubber side down. There is no real competition from European manufacturers other than the Ducati Supersport. However, the land of the rising sun brings to the ring the Suzuki GSX-S1000F and the Kawasaki Ninja 1000.

BikeWale's Take

The BMW R 1200 RS is the fully-faired version of the R 1200 R. It sports top-quality components and loads of electronic equipment.

    Service Experience

  •  5Riding experience 2 years ago by Deepak Kushwaha, New Delhi

    Drive is through a six-speed gearbox with a wet, anti-hopping, magic clutch, hooked up to a maintenance-free cardan shaft positioned on the left-hand side, as per bmw’s long history.Unique to the r1200r’s structure is the engine serving as a stressed member, in concert

    In the world of sports touring, the BMW K 1600 GTL sits on the top of the hierarchy. But there’s something more affordable  and not as big as the K 1600 GTL – it’s the R 1200 RS. BMW likes to call it a very dynamic sports tourer which is coupled with a lot of technologies....
