BMW S1000R and R1200RT unveiled

Published: 05 November 2013

BMW’s long-anticipated new S1000RR-based super naked has just been unveiled at the Milan Show and these are the first official pictures.

It features a retuned, 160bhp version of the S1000RR’s 999cc inline four engine, an electronics package including BMW’s Race ABS, ASC traction control and two power modes, kerb weight of just 207kg and is expected to be priced under £10,000.

The German firm also unveiled its all-new R1200RT.

The popular, 1170cc, boxer-powered machine, receives a full update for 2014 and is essentially based on the same all-new 125bhp engine and running gear which debuted on this year’s all-new R1200GS endure.
