The BMW R 1200 R emphasises the sporty all round character with new cast light alloy wheels, the R 1200 R Classic presents wire spoke wheels for a deliberate touch of refined nostalgia.This demarcation between the two new roadster models is also continued in the colour of the paintwork and other equipment details. For instance, the R 1200 R Classic pays homage to the classic roadsters with metallic sapphire black paintwork in conjunction with a centre stripe in plain alpine white extending over the tank and front wheel cover.The basic version of the R 1200 R is available in mat metallic smoky grey, metallic light grey, or metallic red apple: three colour schemes representing a dynamic, elegant, and modern interpretation of the roadster.These three colour variants when combined with wheels and drivetrain in Nürburg silver highlight the sporty, dynamic side of the roadster.

The R 1200 R Classic, on the other hand, deliberately goes for a refined contrast and emphasises components like the Telelever, drivetrain, cylinder head covers, frame, and fork with silver. Their classical, refined quality also finds expression in the completely chromium-plated exhaust system and the mirrors with a chromium look, whereas the basic version provides a sporty touch in the form of a rear silencer in brushed stainless steel and black rearview mirrors.

For instance, maximised rigidity and strength is provided by the tried and tested, two part main/rear frame, which has a  weight-saving structure of steel tubing is designed with the engine as a load-bearing element for maximum stiffness and rigidity. The front suspension of the new BMW R 1200 R trusts in the BMW Telelever in conjunction with a new fork structure. Its high quality, technical grace and the enlarged diameter of the standpipe (from 35 to 41 mm) contribute decisively to shaping the face of the new R 1200 R. The rear suspension takes the form of the tried and tested single arm with BMW Paralever.

This serves to vary the spring base and the suspension’s pressure and rebound stages at the rear wheel, and the suspension’s rebound stage at the front wheel – a system that has established itself as the solution for optimised road handling and comfort.The maximum safety standard is ensured by the established and proven brake system, which can be fitted in the factory with the optional BMW Motorrad integral ABS (in the partially integral version) and automatic stability control ASC.

In the R 1200 R “DarkWhite” special model, BMW Motorrad highlights its sporty side, something that has always typified BMW roadsters with boxer engines. 
The special model underlines dynamic aspirations in an exciting contrast between the bodywork with its light white paintwork and the jet black of the drivetrain and wheels. Frame in asphalt grey, swingarm, rear axle housing and triangular wishbone in matt black and black anodised fork tubes lend the roadster an exclusive high-tech feel. The sports windshield reduces the strain on the rider in the area of the helmet and upper body. The standard sports seat provides perfect contact with the motorcycle.
