The BMW R 1250 RS

Sports touring in the fast lane

The BMW R 1250 RS is a powerful sports touring bike. Characterised by its two-cylinder boxer engine with BMW ShiftCam technology, it already visually embodies sporty dominance and unadulterated driving pleasure. Thanks to the wind and weather protection as well as the relaxed sitting position and assistance systems, you can enjoy every corner and every kilometre – whether alone or with a companion. Every punch of your boxer drives you forward  – every single time. On every journey and every dynamic intermediate sprint. You demand more with confidence and faith – and the bike delivers. Simply put: #NeverStopChallenging.

More power in every situation

The boxer engine with proven BMW ShiftCam technology has two different intake camshaft profiles. Thanks to its variable camshaft control, the drive impresses with superior running smoothness, high efficiency or impressive torque development depending on the requirements: for truly powerful acceleration. The increase up to the maximum torque of 143 Nm can be felt in every speed range: in sprints in the fast lane, as well as during powerful acceleration out of bends.

Expressive sports touring bike

More choices

One boxer, three faces. From classic, purist to sporty, dynamic to striking elegance: each of the three colour combinations perfectly expresses the incomparable dynamic sports touring character of the R 1250 RS.


The colours Light white/Racing blue metallic/Racing red are a clear homage to BMW Motorsport. The sporty look of the single seater is completed with a white frame and golden brake callipers.

Triple black

Attention design fans: Black storm metallic with Agate grey frame accentuates the lines perfectly. The golden brake callipers and the stainless steel engine spoiler set striking accents.

Sporty from front to rear

From the striking front end with the iconic daytime riding lights and the newly designed LED flashing turn indicators, to the high windscreen and full trim panel, right through to the short, sporty, slim single seater: The R 1250 RS is a pure sports touring bike. Confident and safe. Performance-oriented and dominant. Comfortable and hungry for curves. Just as the bike’s lines promise. Just the way you want it.

Dynamics package

Do you see every straight as a run-up to the next corner? Our dynamics package supports you in your desire for power.

  • With Dynamic and Dynamic Pro, the Pro riding modes offer you two purely performance-oriented programmes.
  • Engine drag torque control prevents your rear wheel from slipping or skidding, giving you greater stability and control.
  • The shift assistant Pro enables upshifting and downshifting without actuating the clutch.
  • The Dynamic ESA offers a wide range between comfort and pure sportiness. With its automatic control of damping and spring pre-load, it ensures the best traction even when leaning.
Comfort package

With the comfort package, you can tackle every tour with ease. All that matters here is making your ride easy and enjoyable, before you even hop on.

  • Thanks to Keyless Ride, you can start your bike with your key in your pocket - without spending ages searching for the key.
  • In addition, this package includes the tyre pressure control (RDC) as well as heated handles to keep your fingers nice and warm.
  • And if you want to make your bike really stand out, you can opt for the chrome exhaust system or the chrome manifold.
Tour package

If you really enjoy the journey and the time on your bike, you may want to keep going for few kilometres more, and the tour package ensures comfortable travel.

  • And, of course, this package includes a holder for a navigation device as well as cruise control.
  • And the centre stand keeps your bike steady and secure, even with heavy bags hanging on both case holders.
