Fans of naked BMW roadsters now have two choices among the pre-owned offerings at Bob’s; and both are 2004 R1150Rs! Take your time to compare the two, each with a different set of attributes, mileage, and price point, and pick the one that’s right for you. It’s hard to go wrong either way. This beauty, in deep Piedmont Red Metallic, just became available and offers plenty of features that make it a great value. To look at this bike, you would not guess it has had three owners! It was originally sold new at Bob’s and each of its owners apparently took pride in its care — even having most of its service handled at Bob’s as well. Even now, some fifteen years after its initial delivery, the bike runs great and shines in like-new condition.
Here’s a quick list of the desirable extra features included with this R1150R:
• BMW System Detachable Side Cases with added Reflective Strips at rear
• BMW Factory Option LOW Seat
• Handlebar-mounted MondoMoto Auxiliary Lights
• Heated Grips
• BMW Handguards
• BMW Valve Cover Protectors
• BMW Accessory Outlet
• Battery Tender Charging Lead
Go ahead and take another long look at this bike. You’ll see that, overall, it’s in amazingly good condition with only a few signs of the years and miles under its belt. There is evidence of a left-side tip-over which resulted in small scratches on the handguard and the lower edge of the valve cover protector. You’ll notice the signs of normal wear on the saddlebags consisting of a few light scratches and boot scuffs. And there is surface discoloration (“patina”) on the exhaust header pipes which, again, is typical. The bike arrived at Bob’s in very good condition to begin with, and then our in-house pro detailer really brought it up to the remarkable state of clean and shine you see here.
The BMW Certified Master Techs in our Service Department gave this bike the usual Bob’s workout: a complete 38-Point Performance and Safety inspection, Bi-Annual Maintenance Service with all engine/drive fluids and filters changed, brake fluid service, and all settings checked and adjusted as necessary. We replaced a few small parts that were worn or damaged, and importantly, installed NEW TIRES and filled them with nitrogen for enhanced performance and longevity. Everything about this bike’s maintenance history indicates regular and responsible care — for instance, its alternator belt was recently replaced on schedule, and the previous owner brought it to Bob’s for its last regular maintenance only 10 months/1,000 miles ago. There is no reason not to have full confidence in the future mechanical performance of this versatile motorcycle. Of course, we finished our service treatment by putting the bike through the Maryland State Inspection process, and it passed without a hiccup.
This BMW roadster comes with two keys, the owner’s books and its original factory tool kit. It’s unmistakably a great value. Riding it will certainly be as satisfying as looking at it, and you’ll have thousands of miles of happy riding ahead! To learn more, contact one of our BMW certified Sales Advisors today!
