The new BMW R 1200 S

1. Concept and Features.

the new R 1200 S, BMW Motorrad is proudly the most powerful production the world has ever seen a machine standing out clearly all other models in the range. new addition to the Boxer series is in the footsteps of the successful R 1100 S, the focus clearly on sporting and dynamic riding characteristics.

expression of superior performance and power is borne out from the by the athletic looks of the R 1200 S: the front fairing with the grille so typical of BMW and the asymmetric headlights all the way to the unmistakable silencer at the and the LED tail lights, each and line and feature of this new simply exudes power and all the way.

BMW Motorrad quite chose the former model as the in creating the design of the new R 1200 S. And with this distinctive the responsible designers were to successfully bring out a particular of lightness and dynamism in the looks of the new — not least thanks to its slender and perhaps even athletic silhouette bearing testimony to the outstanding lightweight of the

R 1200 S: Overall weight of the new in road trim but without is a mere 190 kg or 430 lb, making it 13 kg or almost 29 lb than its 1,100-cc predecessor. And the tank full, overall of BMW’s new Sports Boxer is an impressive 213 kg or 470 lb.

Modified in numerous features, the 1,170-cc engine

enormous power reserves a peak of 90 kW/122 hp at 8,250 These figures alone the sporting standard of the new model, nevertheless does not seek to be a Rather, one of the most important in developing the new R 1200 S was to achieve a synthesis of sportiness and everyday qualities enabling the rider to on a relaxed seating position for riding enjoyment even on distances.

And thanks to its slender — a result of the seat optimised around the rider’s — the R 1200 S also safe and secure ground when at a standstill.

It almost without saying that new Boxer comes with all the

so typical of the brand, such as a controlled catalytic converter, the system for the on-board network with an electronic immobiliser, a and easy-shifting six-speed gearbox, shaft drive with a swinging arm, as well as front wheel suspension. The set-up of the suspension and running ensures extremely precise and handling at all times further by

the high-performance brake system: BMW Motorrad ABS anti-lock brakes low weight and fast response perfect for the sports rider in this case without the function but with on-demand allowing the rider to deactivate ABS on the track.

The wide range of BMW and accessories also reflects the wishes and special requests. The seeking to highlight the looks

of his as a sporting performer, for example, at the same time enjoying and every bend in the road, has to mention just two examples the choice of an extra-wide rear as well as the high-performance Öhlins suspension with spring variable in length.

The most sporting and dynamic of all times is ready to go!

Boxer engine with more power.

BMW’s new Boxer benefits from the already featured on the R 1200 GS: 1,170 cc, the two-cylinder features valves and two spark plugs per thus following the basic of the flat-twin power unit of the GS But at the same time far-reaching ensure much higher output than on the RT and ST models.

the modified cylinder heads the R 1200 S to develop an impressive 90 hp smoothly delivered to the crankshaft in anti-friction bearings. Power is via new, high load-resistant rods made of extra-strong alloy. The camshafts with control timing and larger lift rotate no longer in but rather in three bearings to further enhance the stiffness and of the entire valve drive

Harder valve springs and rocker arms take the speed of the engine of up to 8,800 rpm account, a speed level never seen before on a BMW

New pistons are also one of the significant made on the S power unit, the geometric compression ratio to 1 and thus marking a new record for an and oil-cooled power unit. enormous compression ratio in particular to boost torque at low and engine speeds, the flat-twin maximum torque of 112 Newton-metres or 83 lb-ft at 6,800 rpm, the emphasis on supreme peak

On the road, this means engine response and muscle at all the flat-twin developing its maximum on premium plus (RON 98) And at the same time the engine is able to run smoothly on 95-octane thanks to its anti-knock sensors, only a minor reduction of

Throttle butterflies and intake enlarged in diameter by 5 millimetres or to 52 millimetres or 2.05´´ and interacting the modified intake funnel to the cylinder charge also to increase engine output. Due to the intake cross-sections, the throttle housings feature special, kinematic control, the rider’s in calling up engine power delivered to the throttle butterflies not on a curve, but rather with a transmission ratio.

This sophisticated and well-conceived ensures a harmonious flow of together with superior and pulling force immediately the rider turns the gas handle to load at low engine speeds.

It without saying that the electronic intake manifold together with the engine and exhaust manifolds, is specially to these modified flow the interior diameter of the exhaust gas being increased by 5 millimetres or 0.20´´ to 50 millimetres or 1.97´´ on the new R S.

Despite its sporting character, the flat-twin power unit the same running smoothness as the models in the R 1200 Series

a particular feature attributable, not to the balance shaft. The dog-shift gearbox weighing just 13 or not quite 29 lb as well as lightweight drive have already their qualities on the new Boxer and are now being carried over requiring any modifications to the R 1200 S.


Another proven is the multi-dimensional frame structure on the R integrating the engine into the and suspension as a load-bearing element: The R S features a three-piece frame geared to the qualities and characteristics of sports motorcycle.

The central and sections of the tubular frame are made of steel, while the frame bolted in place is up of extra-light square aluminium The advantages of this structure are not low weight, but also simple and repair of accident damage at the

precision is a particularly important on a sports

motorcycle. But apart an absolutely precise response to his commands, the rider also clear feedback from the wheel.

This is precisely why the front wheel suspension on the R S comes with fixed measuring 41 millimetres or 1.61´´ in and wheel travel of 110 millimetres or Featuring longitudinal arms on a specially matched spring the Telelever does not require any and reduces brake dive to a

The geometry of the suspension is new and has been tailored to the R 1200 S, even the data and configuration figures highlighting the agility and superior offered by this Sports on winding roads, naturally in with low weight in road with a full tank of 213 kg or 470 lb: Measuring 66, the steering head is 1 steeper than on the former while front wheel is now just 87 millimetres or 3.43´´, of the former 100 millimetres or 3.94´´. As a the rider will hardly notice that wheelbase is up 1,478 to 1,487 millimetres to 58.54´´).

Spring with travel-dependent damping in of the EVO Paralever.

The big advantages of the BMW Motorrad are well known and widely Benefiting from its lifetime oil in the axle drive, the lightweight with single-arm wheel requires absolutely no maintenance and is any heavier than a conventional arm with chain drive.

Made of cast aluminium, the structure rests on the frame of the via a modern gas-pressure spring with travel-dependent damping and offers 120 millimetres or 4.72´´ travel.

wheels in dynamic design radial sports tyres.

The dynamic design of the aluminium has already attracted attention on BMW sporting and dynamic K-models and is now to be for the first time on the Boxer Particularly the stylish rear is a genuine eye-catcher, the high-rising allowing a free, unobstructed of the wheel.

The R 1200 S is also a sportsman when it comes to dimensions: The 3.50 x 17-inch at the front runs on a 120/70 ZR 17 sports tyre with good grip, while the x 17-inch wheel at the rear a high-grip radial sports measuring 180/55 ZR 17. And as an option, the R S is available straight from the with a six-inch rear running on a 190-format tyre.

brake system with ABS as an

The new BMW R 1200 S is an uncompromising performer in its brake technology: The front comes with two brake measuring 320 millimetres/12.60´´ in diameter and 4.5 in thickness, and held in position required by two four-piston swing This brake system the brakes even the R 1100 S, already were quite with its brake discs 305 millimetres or 12.01´´ in diameter and 5.0 0.20´´ across. The rear in turn, comes with a floating calliper acting on a disc measuring 265 millimetres or in diameter.

Benefiting from of this standard, even the rider out on a race track can on smooth and consistent, precise response with operating reduced to a minimum. Hydraulic and superior operation of the brake is ensured by high-quality, steel-reinforced hoses.

Choosing an appropriate ABS brake system, the engineers at BMW focused from the start on the rider: The system used on the R S is an upgraded two-channel ABS configuration an integral function or brake excelling through low weight and dimensions and thus adding 1.5 kilos or 3.3 lb to the overall weight of the

This low weight is made by a newly designed, extremely pressure modulator featuring intake valves for optimum pressure at all times in the usual ABS range, that is when the brakes with the risk of the locking. This superiority is by very fast and precise intervals, the new control valves their infinitely variable also enhancing the feeling of for the rider, who will feel a minor pulse effect in the levers.

A further advantage for the is the option to deactivate ABS when on a race track.

BMW Motorrad’s new ABS brakes again come an even wider range of functions, the wheel speed for example, automatically supervising distance from the sensor and thus contributing to the supreme of all-round safety offered by the CAN-bus on-board network, with a wide range of information, and electronic immobiliser as standard.

It almost goes without that BMW’s new Sports comes with the single-wire (SWS) on-board electronics featured on the R 1200 GS. Having proven its merits a million over in the automobile, this technology offers a wide of benefits: It reduces the number and of cables required, uses technology to connect all control and in this way facilitates the process of all kinds of running conditions. A advantage is that the system the need for conventional melt-down by automatically switching off the component in the case of malfunction.

Using provided by the single-wire system, the is able to retrieve and call up of information via the Info-Flatscreen. As an example, the display presents the gear in mesh, the amount of fuel in the tank, current oil temperature, the of day, and the range remaining on the still in the tank. And in presenting all information with optimum a photo-cell control unit takes ambient light into account, automatically instrument light intensity to requirements.

Even the aficionado of instruments will be thrilled at sight by

design — slender and all in one.

Even at very sight, BMW Motorrad’s new Sports boasts an even more and dynamic figure than its while nevertheless taking up the design language of the R 1100 S. The end of the new machine is dominated by an asymmetric headlight featuring reflectors geometrically optimised free-shaped carried over from the GS High-intensity H7 bulbs ensure illumination, and the cover lens of scratch-proof polycarbonate coating new in its and material qualities harmonises with the BMW kidney grille

A further is that the fastening points are no visible from outside, the entire front section and clean in design, with all and components fitting together And last but certainly not least, the indicators integrated in the rear-view also make an important to this superior style and looks.

Yet another striking is the fairing support made of pressure-cast magnesium. Finished in Grey metallic paintwork and in position by aluminium bolts, important component is an integral of the overall design concept and may be not only by the rider sitting on the but also by an outside observer.

Featuring a new silencer and exhaust outlets placed beneath one the rear end of the motorcycle is accentuated in its vertical look. The extra-large, muffler is positioned below the fairing smoothly and attractively the direction indicators into the design.

A further feature right at the top is the new tail light no less than 18 light-emitting comprising both the reversing and lights operating in two different of brightness. Compared with a tail light cluster, the diodes require only 10-20 per cent of the usual of energy, while at the same offering a much longer life and significant safety thanks to their even response time.

Focusing on features, the aerodynamic qualities of BMW Sports Boxer deserve mention, especially after perfected in the wind tunnel: sporting performance naturally one of the main considerations in the development greater significance has been in this case to the lowest drag coefficient as opposed to protection from wind and But this does not mean the carefully designed, low-slung on the R 1200 S does not give
