2015 BMW R 1200 RS launched

After a long absence, BMW’s motorcycle range is once again going to include an RS model powered by a boxer-twin engine.

The 2015 R 1200 RS sports tourer, which has just been unveiled at the Intermot show in Cologne, basically takes the new R 1200 R and adds an aerodynamic half-fairing that incorporates twin headlights and an adjustable windscreen.

Mechanically, the RS and R are identical. They share the same tubular steel bridge frame, front upside-down fork / rear Paralever suspension set-up and 1,170 cc motor which produces 123 bhp (92 kW / 125 PS) with 125 Nm (92 lb/ft) of peak torque.

Included on the bike’s standard equipment list are anti-lock brakes, Automatic Stability Control and a choice of ‘Rain’ or ‘Road’ riding modes. It also comes with 10-spoke cast alloy wheels and a TFT display in the instrument cluster.

The R 1200 RS is being offered in a couple of two-tone colour schemes. BMW has still to confirm prices.
