The next R 1250 shift cam boxer is up: the BMW R 1250 RS
RS doesn't stand for 'racing sport'? No, that's not what it stands for. Ever since the introduction of the original RS in 1976 it has stood more for 'ReiseSport' (travel sport) or sport touring. This is the domain of the new RS. If it were a car you'd call it GT - Gran Turismo - in which you can swiftly and comfortably put long distances behind you. Enough of the shortcuts. On the engine side, the R 1250 RS has all the fine ingredients of the shift cam Boxer models, which means the intake camshaft can add two cam profiles: One for torque-defined riding at low, moderate revolutions and a cam profile when you need power. This makes it exceptionally powerful, superior, elastic and efficient.
Why do this? Because the fantastic engine simply brings joy and increases efficiency at the same time. You don't feel a thing when you switch the cam profile while riding. This is technology that pleases: in the city, on country roads and on long trips, fast journeys, as well as during relaxed rides across the country.
Similar to its 'naked' sister R 1250 R, the design here has been moderately advanced. This is most noticeable on the front with the new full LED headlight.
Wunderlich has already presented a comprehensive and diverse range for the BMW R 1250 GS, GS Adventure, RT and R. The Sinzig-based BMW accessory specialists' development department has already done great work on the 2019 BMW R 1250 RS to make the BMW R 1250 RS even more perfect.
Further information is coming soon. Stay tuned!
The Wunderlich core competencies
The new »RS-MARATHON« windshield developed by Wunderlich exclusively for the R 1250 RS offers wind and weather protection with zero turbulence thanks to the well-known perfect aerodynamic design. It has been developed especially for the R 1250 RS and integrates harmoniously into the design of the roadster, protecting and relieving the entire upper body. There's nothing else standing in the way of relaxed riding.
The »AKTIVKOMFORT« rider seat is already a classic in the Sinzig team's product range. It provides optimised weight distribution thanks to the contoured layer composition of the cushion developed by Wunderlich, which comes with integrated coccyx relief. It demonstrates perfect comfort and unrestrained suitability for long journeys. Wunderlich offers the rider and passenger seat as "Standard" in the original height and the rider seat also comes as a "high" version with a height increase of +30 mm. It is especially suitable for large individuals and also provides a relaxed knee angle.
The handlebar risers from Wunderlich are known for their relaxed ergonomics - and not just on long journeys - without losing any of the dynamics. They also give you an improved overview of the traffic situation.
The latest engine protection bar creation from Wunderlich is available in white or black: The »SPORT« engine protection bar, which follows the same design and construction criteria as all engine protection bars from Wunderlich and thus incorporates especially well into the design of the new R 1250 RS. In order to live up to its sporty use, it is made out of powder-coated 16 mm precision steel tubing and optimised for weight distribution.
Innovative luggage solutions.
