MCN, 29 September 2014 17:07

• 1170cc water-cooled boxer twin• 125bhp / 92lbft • Conventional fork The R1200R has never really been a big hit in the UK market; it lacks the cool of the R1200GS, the touring talents of the R1200RT and despite its talent of just being a no-nonsense boxer-powered roadster it’s been hard to get excited by. BMW is hoping the new 125bhp water-cooled motor ...
