BMW showed their new big touring bikes, The R 1250 GS and the R 1250 RT with variable valve timing and lift to the public for the first time at the Intermot.
BMW have updated their big boxer with a larger capacity (now 1254cc) and variable cam timing and lift, which is said to offer improved performance throughout the rev range. Also the engine is said to run smoother and more efficiently.
Already familiar with the GS, the ”Next Generation” BMW ESA is offered to the RT as a new option. The system adapts to riding conditions and load automatically.
Both models are available with several equipment packages, which can help to transform the bike according to rider’s wishes.
