The BMW R 1250R is an unadulterated roadster, featuring a powerful Boxer engine, dynamic drive and a distinctive sound. The bike’s styling and features have earned it a reputation for being a looker. But it’s not just its looks that make it stand out. If you’re looking for the ultimate performance motorcycle, the R1250R is right for you. Whether you’re a newbie or an experienced rider, the BMW i8 is a fun and versatile motorcycle that will get your heart pumping.
The bike’s handling is excellent for a sport bike, and its quick shifts make it easy to change gears. We experienced a false neutral mid-corner while selecting a gear and felt a little roll on power after the engine braking. The R1250R comes standard with traction control, which was unobtrusive and only visible when the dash light was illuminated. The bike was not easy to wheelie, but it remained a smooth ride throughout our test rides.
The BMW Motored R 1250R also boasts a large, 6.5-inch TFT display. With an optional GPS unit and BMW Motored Connected navigation app, it has a high-tech dashboard that offers advanced vehicle monitoring and navigation capabilities. The instrument panel is easy to read and bright, making it perfect for anyone with little or no experience in motorcycling. A great ride starts with a comfortable seat, and the BMW R1250R is no exception.
