BMWs R1200S never gets as much time in the limelight as the GS model. Personally, I can’t wait to ride an HP2, but every flavor has their advantages. In 2007, new pistons brought the boxer engine to 122hp and 89hp, a 22hp increase over the R1200GS. Additionally, weight was reduced 29 lbs over the previous R1100S. Optional Ohlins suspension offered support to those who prefer to ride more aggressively. For everyone else, the Sachs dampers and heated grips will whisk you along in relative comfort while still looking the part. The front cowl is…typically BMW in the design department. You like it or you don’t. The profile however looks like a half fairing café racer, perhaps serving as inspiration to the R9t.
Finding your favorite flavor of boxer that hasn’t already lived up to its reputation can be difficult. This one-owner R1200S (VIN: WB10396037ZP30264) in Hobbs, New Mexico only has 8,000 miles. It is bone stock, including the factory undertail exhaust and rear fender. The polish on the pipes themselves even remains in good condition, suggesting that the bike was at least properly stored. The optional Ohlins suspension is also included for those who think riding a sporty boxer makes them Nate Kern (I would). Recent R1200S’ on Bike-Urious have reached the low $5,000 range, but have not all reached their reserve marks. What would you offer for this sport touring scalpel?
