The BMW R 1200 RT has undergone a profound transformation to its vintage 2014. Even better in all areas, the RT bluffed us throughout this week of trial. Reference the road category the BMW R 1200 RT in the city.
BMW R1200 RT template required
When notes its side stand one immediately feels thus weight 274 kg of the German. However the driving position is very natural and commands fall under the hands. The lateral sway of the flat twin is rather contained for more general atmosphere. The size of the machine calls for attention, including the width of the suitcases, but venturing into the throes of traffic is much easier than what we could fear.
The balance of the RT is simply stunning. Braking brings real security with a mixture between power and feeling. Once the big “klong” of the passage of the first speed past, the box turns soft and precise. Driving dynamics, Road or Rain modes allow choosing the better suspensions and motor behavior. The dynamic mode seduces us by its availability and its force without to be too violent, even in town.
BMW R1200RT On the Road
It is a level playing field that the new R 1200 RT loves. Thanks to its well-balanced, it spins one turn to another with great ease. Of course, the angle changes require a bit of attention because of the weight and the template, but its part-cycle remains exemplary. The Duolever and Paralever systems restrict transfers of mass for a constant driving pleasure. Adopt a sporting pace is not to displease him since new mechanics now cooled by water and air proves to be very efficient.
Reminders on interim reports place the RT at the top of the category. Protection is just perfect for the secondary network. We then enjoy the growl of mechanics or music distilled by excellent speakers.
BMW R1200RT at Highway
The highway is the field where the 1200RT displays all its qualities. If we talk about protection, adjustable bubble electrically allows adjusting the airflow desired by the driver. In high position, no turbulence just hit the helmet, and the phenomenon of boost in the back remains very measured.
Also, most of this test was conducted with bubble at maximum height. The saddle provides outstanding comfort on long distances and the autonomy of more than 300 km before switching to reserve can be considered for long journeys.
The speed controller brings also a plus in terms of approval. Rain we have fortunately spared during this test, we could not test the protection against moisture, but the legs look very properly protected. The mode of driving Rain does us indeed not essential since Road mode is gentle enough.
The BMW-RT signed almost a flawless with regard to the reception of the passenger. The seat is soft is ideally installed for trip. The handles are easy to hold and protection is as good as for the driver. As on all machines in this category, the downside comes from the side panniers that hinder the access on board. Electronic suspensions to ensure always serene behavior regardless of the loading of the machine.

The equipment is bloated: ABS, electronic suspensions, 3 modes mapping, cruise control, audio equipment, GPS, bubble, on-board computer, handles and heated stool. The quality is at the rendezvous, but saw the tariff in US$ 24658 without option, it is a least.
