2008 BMW R1200RT - SOLD!

We are very pleased to offer up this very clean, one owner touring BMW in one of the classiest, dirt and road grime hiding, generally good looking colors you could ask for. Yes, purists might say it’s not Avus Black but it’s still a Beemer. BMW has gotten plenty creative with paint since the 1960’s when almost every bike was still offered in Avus black with white pinstripes. There are countless shades along with the inclusion of metallic that come from the automotive side where color trends typically start and  people want them! But this examples beauty goes well beyond the exterior color, this one shines inside and everywhere else where it possibly counts the most.
Just approaching it’s ten year anniversary it still looks just as impressive as when it was new, and many who see the next owner on it may not even know that it’s not a brand new offering from BMW. It will surely please anyone looking for a great value that’s ready to ride anywhere in the under $10,000 range. Sold new here at Bob’s BMW it was delivered in July 0f 2008 and has been serviced at Bob’s BMW every single time scheduled maintenance, tires, a battery or anything else was due or required. 
We last provided a full service to the only owner it’s ever had in September of 2015 when it had 17,863 miles so you can see that in the last few years it was not being used often enough which is why it came back to Bob’s. At that time all current factory upgrades or recalls were also addressed and included the rear wheel drive flange and replacing the fuel pump and sender unit gasket. We replaced both low beam bulbs (we do these as pairs so they match but only one was out) as well. Having recently taken it back in and wanting it to go out perfecta again, as well as fully qualified for the exclusive ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED Program at Bob’s we’ve serviced it again.
Our high standards require this and while it did not need that much we do like to share what we’ve done so a new owner understands the baseline they will be acquiring. We followed our standard intake process and completed a thorough evaluation before handing it over to a Master BMW tech who did the complete test ride portion as well as measuring assorted items (brake discs and pads would be just one example) on the list that the sales team, GM (Joe Southard) or even Bob would only visually check, evaluate, inspect and note. We have a fresh MSI or Maryland Safety Inspection (pass) certificate on file and it meets all of our very critical ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED criteria.
We just changed the oil and filter and a lot more as part of a complete Inspection 1 plus annual service which includes brake fluids, final drive and transmission fluids, checking valves clearances, synchronizing the throttle bodies and an all-around safety inspection which might be redundant to the MSI but we are thorough to a fault. We also replaced the oil sight glass as it was starting to cloud up as some do over time. As we had previously installed the tires which date to 2011 and 2012 and show a solid 80-90% of clean ,even sticky tread remaining we just topped off the Nitrogen fill inside.  The battery tested strong as did all other electrical and mechanical systems and functions.
We strive to deliver the finest, most fully serviced and dependable pre-loved BMW’s anywhere in the greater Washington DC, Northern Virginia, Suburban Maryland or Greater Baltimore region every single. And we know that even into nearby Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia we have a reputation for excellence to maintain.
This machine was a very nicely equipped Premium example when BMW built it back in April of 2008 and included ABS, heated seats, heated grips, electronic cruise control, the on board computer, ESA II which is the electronically adjustable (on-the-fly suspension system, chrome exhaust pipe or muffler, BMW’s factory white turn signal lenses and more. The electrically adjustable windscreen is also attached as is the comfort seat and standard fare includes the spectacular tele-lever and para-lever suspension components, adjustable riders seat and quickly detachable factory paint matched saddlebags.
This beautiful example also boasts a set of PIAA 1100 driving lamps (installed at Bob’s), a sweet Garmin ZUMO GPS unit, a very desirable set of flip out J-Peg highway pegs, rear P3 lights, satellite radio antenna, Pirate’s lair riders back rest, BMW multi-vario tank bag, convex blind spot mirrors and if all that were not enough it has a factory large top case with passenger backrest pad key matched to the bike; this item alone is a valuable extra.
The additional beauty and value of BMW’s luggage system is that all the components (bags, top case and tank bag) to carry your stuff on your longer adventures and travels can be removed in less than 90 seconds leaving the bike looking like it never had luggage attached at all, making it a very sporty machine for shorter, sportier rides even though all that gear will not slow you down or limit your fun in the tight twisties no matter how good a rider you are. Even the riders backrest comes off with just 4 torx head bolts.
It is really superb looking, superbly running, expertly cared for motorcycle that will hold up to any close inspection and deliver an enjoyable test ride before you select to make it yours and then years and years and tens of thousands of miles of fun lay ahead. During our initial review and critical mechanical and cosmetic rating this machine got a 9.14 on cosmetics and a 9.5 on mechanicals. Now that we’ve serviced it and our detailer has had time to bring just a little more shine to it we feel that it’s really close to a solid 10 all around and we think anyone who comes to inspect it will agree.  
There are no blemishes to inform you of and no operational issues you should be made aware of.  As always it comes with 2 BMW keys, the factory tool kit and original BMW owner’s manual.
