When Bob was first contacted by the owner of this beautiful machine they stated they had a 2002 R850R, but his response was along the lines of “sorry, that’s not too likely as BMW only imported that bike into the US in 1996 and 1997 and in very limited numbers.” But he was soon corrected because this bike is not a US version which makes it all the more unique and special. It was purchased in the UK in March of 2011 when it was relatively young and had just 5,794 miles on it from a large Authorized BMW car and motorbike dealership.
When Bob’s took the bike in as the prior owner was just not getting enough time to be in the saddle we performed a complete Maryland State Inspection which it passed except for a missing side reflector which we’ve since installed and given it a very through going over, inspection as if it were to qualify for the ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED Program (it does not but only due to being older than 10 years) and added Nitrogen to the excellent tires (4,800 miles and 3 years old and they appear to have about 70% of their useable tread remaining) changed the oil and filter, changed and bleed the brake system, renewed the rear brake disc and pads (BMW parts), replaced a very few bits of slightly rusty hardware and as mentioned above installed new reflectors all around.
Cosmetically Bob gave it very high marks upon arrival as it was apparent the bike had been very well cared for everyday of its life. He found just one tiny scratch on the fuel tank and 2 others, even smaller on the front fender. There is a very small scrape or mark along the very lower edge of both bags but you really need to be on your knees to see them. Now after a little attention to minute details it shines even more and it really does run like a new bike so you will not be disappointed in this machine. It’s a great mid-sized do everything and do it all is amazing style machine. Grab it before someone else does because it is in amazingly great condition and a comparable bike is simply not to be found – even if you compared it to an R1100R!Color:
