BMW Roadsters are powerful, smooth, great handling, and comfortable. Best of all, because they come “naked,” they’re almost infinitely adaptable. Each owner can make it into the bike they WANT it to be. This pre-owned R1200R has already been amended to include some excellent touring gear and several custom gizmos to make it even more special. You could certainly take it as it’s equipped right now and confidently ride to the other coast and back, or use it simply as a starting point to create a motorcycle to suit your very own specific desires. Either way, you’d be getting a super VALUE in a bike that’s got moderately low miles, looks great and runs like a top.
The 1170cc air/oil-cooled boxer twin is a rock solid motor onto which a strong, easy handling, and comfortable chassis has been built. It’s a proven formula, as evidenced by the fact that BMW still uses an only slightly altered version of it in their current and very popular R nineT series bikes. This one’s got BMW’s famous Telelever front & Paralever rear suspension components to further enhance its precise, predictably stable, and safe handling characteristics. In addition to everyone’s favorite feature – Heated Grips — this one was also built with an On Board Computer, ASC (Automatic Stability Control), and TPM (Tire Pressure Monitoring), all excellent factory options for comfort and confidence. A previous owner (there have been two) added BMW Metal Valve Cover Guards, and the spacious, easily removable BMW Touring Side Cases & 28 Liter Top Case so you will NOT need to worry about having enough luggage space for your travels.
But it’s the style and taste exemplified by the following aftermarket options that make this bike really interesting: 1.) full REMUS Exhaust System, 2.) PIAA LED Driving lights with handlebar switch, 3.) Rizoma Mirrors, 4.) Rizoma Clutch & Brake Reservoir Caps – blue anodized, 5.) Clutch & Brake Levers – blue anodized, 6.) Rizoma Rider Foot Pegs and Passenger Pegs – blue anodized, 7.) Rizoma Oil Filler Cap, dark tinted Sport Windshield, 8.) LST Low Rear Fender – painted blue. Oh, and there’s also a set of Techspec tank pads for knees and belt, and a sidestand foot to give you greater confidence on uncertain parking surfaces.
We’ve got to admit that all those little those blue anodized accessories work so well with the glossy Montego Blue Metallic paint, giving it a glimmer that really sets it apart from the crowd. The machine had the full treatment from our professional in-house detailer to assure that cleanliness and finish are almost as good as when the bike was brand new. But we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that there are a few minor scratches – on the mirror edges, side cases, valve cover, tank, and elsewhere. Tip-over damage most likely (it’s perhaps what inspired the owner to install the sidestand foot!), but we mention these things because, except for the side cases and one place on the tank – which you can see in the pictures – you might not notice any of the other blemishes yourself unless you get in real close. The bike is, overall, in very good cosmetic condition, and there’s nothing at all here that would diminish your pride in ownership.
This motorcycle was originally sold at Bob’s and it was serviced here most of the time as well. In preparation for putting it up for sale our service techs thoroughly checked it millimeter by millimeter for any defects or wear that would affect performance and safety. It got all its fluids and filters changed, including a full brake fluid service, throttle body sync, and valve clearance adjustment. We installed a new battery as the original one was showing signs of aging out. The tires on the bike were recently replaced and still have plenty of safe miles left in them. Then we took it for an extended critical test ride to be sure every aspect of its performance was at or above factory spec. Finally, we ran it through Maryland State Inspection. Passed. A1 condition. Good to go. Mechanically fit for a long and happy life ahead. Take it and ride!
