The best ones are always just around the corner and after having two really sweet R1200ST’s over the last 12 months this one appears just a month ago on our door step and it is most assuredly the nicest of the three, and those last two were pretty darn nice. And even though this one does not have any accessories included the upside to that is the new owner, possibly you, gets to equip it exactly as you wish and there’s a knowledgeable team here at Bob’s ready to help with those decisions.
This one was built in January of 2005 and had been sold to a new owner by late July of the same year – pretty much a build it, ship it and sell it process as it takes several months to go through the entire export/import process and end up on a dealerships showroom floor. While we cannot fully verify this our information tells us it had just one owner since new. All the services were also performed by that same BMW dealership until it was brought to Bob’s to be inspected and purchased.
The initial inspection turned up only that it qualified for the recent fuel pump recall, needed new tires and was due for the 18,000 mile service which pretty much covers it all and as is standard we have addressed all of those issues plus run it through our exacting MSI/PPI and ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED Program inspection so we can offer additional benefits and coverage with this beautiful machine. So simply put it’s now a turnkey bike with new tires and all services up to date.
Cosmetically it is in near new shape from every conceivable perspective. The frame is spotless, the wheels don’t have any marks on them, the exhaust system shines beautifully, there is not any pre-mature corrosion or discoloration on the hardware, the seats are still unmarked and supple yet firm and all bodywork is really a 9.9 to 10 on a critical 10 scale and we cannot see any evidence of fading let alone prior damage that was repaired. It appears to simply be an exceptionally well cared for low mileage example of one of BMW’s finest sport touring machines. Even the stock tool kit has never been unrolled.
Back when these were newly available Bob himself rode one that was even this same color. We’re pretty sure he’d be happy to meet with a prospective new owner to discuss the array of extras we added to his machine. He did say that he recalls having the current BMW GPS, BMW saddlebags, Multivario tankbag. Kathy’s bag liners, side stand foot, a set of Moto-lights (he generally uses PIAA’s these days) and a totally black windscreen which he created himself and might do for you.
Like his bike this one is equipped with BMW’s fabulous ABS system (these models were available without ABS at the dealers discretion) plus boasts the tele-lever and para-lever suspension components that make it such a joy to ride. It also has the stock center stand, factory luggage rack or grid, heated grips, adjustable height clear screen, adjustable rider seat, clear turn signal lenses and the chrome exhaust pipe.
Like almost every used bike we offer it has the tool kit, two keys (one we added) and we’ve just ordered a fresh owner’s manual as it arrived without one so a new owner will have it all. These bikes will be very collectible one day according to Bob, but for now it’s simply one of the best all-around BMW’s one could ever own and enjoy!Color:
