BMW R 1200 RT History
The RT model (Reise-Tourer, or ‘Travel Tourer’) first appeared in the 1970s. The R 1200 RT is designed for comfortable, relaxed touring. For the rider who wants to experience the best that a modern touring motorcycle can offer, it is the ideal motorbike to hire. As a thoroughbred tourer, the RT is designed for passenger comfort as well. The RoadTrip R 1200 RT LEs are equipped with a redesigned, aerodynamic fairing which ensures complete comfort and effortless riding at all speeds.
BMW RT’s are renowned for light handling and excellent manoeuvrability. They make light of the 275 kg kerb weight. Our R 1200RT LE motorcycles are fully equipped for both comfort and performance and include dynamic electronic suspension, electronic riding modes, and full ABS braking.
The technical package also includes BMW’s new Gearshift Assist Pro. This provides optional, clutch-less, gear shifting both up and down the newly re-designed 6 speed transmission. This is great if you are coming off a slip road into fast moving traffic; and also very useful if you are looking to make swift, progressive use of engine braking as you approach a corner.
For touring comfort, heated grips and heated seats, tyre pressure monitoring, cruise control, integrated Satnav handlebar controls, running lights and BMW’s new hill start control are all fitted to the RoadTrip R 1200 RT LEs. We have also added engine protection bars for increased protection.
Our R 1200 RT hire motorcycles are finished in BMW’s Platinum Bronze and Carbon Black Metallic with colour matched panniers. A top box completes the full touring specification.
