Features

Features

  • LARGE STANDARD 10.25" TFT COLOR DISPLAY: The large and easy-to-read 10.25" TFT screen with full HD resolution is both an instrument cluster and on-board computer. On it, you’ll find full instrumentation as well as navigation and media.
  • FRONT WITH LED HEADLIGHTS: Great new look and better vision: The new front end with LED headlights, as standard, emphasize the dynamic lines of the R 1250 RT even more, while the lower body height increases your field of view.
  • FULL POWER IN EVERY SPEED RANGE WITH BMW SHIFTCAM: The BMW ShiftCam variable camshaft control system delivers outstanding performance and – especially in the lower engine speed range – harmonious running, control and power.
  • CONTINUOUS POWER THANKS TO WIRELESS CHARGING: Protected against splashing water, your smartphone charges by induction or USB in the handy storage compartment – and you can use the navigator, use the phone and listen to music at the same time.
  • SIMPLE OPERATION WITH FAVORITES BUTTON: Four programmable buttons give you quick access to functions such as navigation or seat heating. You can easily switch while driving – your attention stays on the road.
  • NAVIGATION ON THE 10.25" TFT SCREEN: Know where you want to go? So does the R 1250 RT. And without an additional navigation device. Thanks to the BMW Motorrad Connected App and the interactive map view on the 10.25" TFT display, you’ll be sure to reach the next leg of the tour unhindered.
  • SMOOTH TRAVELS WITH AVAILABLE ACTIVE CRUISE CONTROL: Three letters, a big boost to comfort: With the new ACC, your bike automatically maintains your desired speed and, via a radar sensor, to maintain distance from the vehicle in front.
  • AUDIO SYSTEM WITH A STRONG SOUND: The right sound accompaniment to your tour: The new and stronger amplifier provides rich sound. You can listen to radio or music from your smartphone and control it conveniently via the Multi-Controller.
