BMW R1200 RT Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • 125bhp motor is loaded with torque
    • Excellent pillion comfort
    • Equipped with top-spec electronics

BikeWale's Take

The R1200 RT is a modern tourer from BMW for the modern world. The bike is very comfortable for long distance riding, even for the pillion. Plus, the 125bhp boxer engine churns out great amount of torque at the low and mid-range making it a highway king. But this bike is pricey and has limited service reach.
