For the 2007 model year, BMW updated the R1150R with a significant improvement in the R1200R. The new motor featured four valves per cylinder and (obviously) a displacement bump to 1,170cc. That increased power to 109, but BMW claimed that the new bike saved 44 pounds over its predecessor – resulting in a 40% increase in power-to-weight!
For more on the R-R, check out this First Ride Review on Motorcyclist: “In a way it’s ironic such complex new electronic systems would be introduced on the R1200R. One characteristic many of the best naked twin-cylinder roadsters share is their simplicity: a responsive engine in a basic, unfaired chassis. An absence of complex gizmos is elemental to that appeal. But that’s the great thing about the R1200R: Unlike some previous BMWs, the electronics never get in the way.”
This example has just under 40,000 miles and it’s equipped with the factory luggage, bag liners, Adventure Monster auxiliary lights, Kaoko throttle lock, Corbin seat (original included), Wunderlich wind deflector, and a battery tender.
