The BMW R 1250 RS

Sporty touring in the fast lane

Each trip is determined by two factors: time and distance. Get more out of every tour with the BMW R 1250 RS. Simply put: #RideAndShare. The new boxer engine’s impressive 143 Nm of torque and an output of 100 kW (136 hp) accelerate you to your travelling speed faster than ever. Innovative BMW ShiftCam technology offers you more torque and impressive elasticity throughout the entire engine speed range. As a result, you will be able to accelerate in any riding position. The newly designed front with full LED headlight conveys a fresh, sporty and aerodynamic look. One thing is certain – no matter how far you have come and in what time: with the R 1250 RS, your riding pleasure increases with every metre travelled.  


Choose your style

Whether purist, dynamic or exclusive: your R 1250 RS also visually underlines your riding style. Choose the look that will help you reach new destinations as a team.

Black storm metallic

Turn the day into night with traditional Black storm metallic paintwork. Silver elements, such as footrests and handlebars set gleaming highlights.


In this design variant, the Light white paintwork creates a radiant appearance and emphasises the sporty side of the R 1250 RS.


With Imperial blue metallic, the message is exclusivity. Elegant appearances are guaranteed with its dark overall impression. Golden brake calipers, agate grey main frame, the Exclusive inscription and the tank cover in stainless steel bear witness to the highest quality.

Sportiness meets ergonomics

The R 1250 RS combines sportiness with touring ability. The completely revised front including new engine spoiler emphasizes the dynamic overall impression of the Sport Tourer. The symmetrical layout of the twin headlights gives the R 1250 RS a balanced and modern look. The handlebar geometry ensures a sporty sitting position.
