BMW Motorrad announces the return of the BMW R 1250 RT to Brazil. The model, manufactured in Germany, will be sold again in Brazil after five years of absence with a price starting at R $ 165,750 in alpine white and R $ 178,750 in the planet blue version, which brings some personalized details. The model arrives at the brand’s stores on October 19.
A reference in the touring segment, the BMW R 1250 RT stands out for its boxer engine with two opposite cylinders and 1250 cc, which also equips the bigtrail R 1250 GS. In the new RT, the propellant delivers 136 hp of maximum power at 7,750 rpm and has a variable valve system Shift Cam. The multi-disc oil-bath gearbox has six speeds and the final transmission is also done by cardan shaft.
Pfor long trips
2.2 meters long, 1.5 meters high and 985 mm wide, the new BMW R 1250 RT weighs 279 kilos without load. The wheels are rim 17, fitted with tubeless tires in measures 120/70 (front) and 180/55 (rear).
At the front, the suspension Telelever has only one shock absorber center, while the forks serve as a guide. The great advantage is that the system reduces the sinking of the front train in sudden braking.
At the rear, the oscillating cast aluminum monoblock has only one damper and less weight compared to traditional scales. For those who make long trips, this type of suspension facilitates the removal of the rear wheel, in case of need for tire repair. The model also has the electronic semi-active suspension system Dynamic-ESA, which performs an automatic damping adjustment according to the terrain conditions.
In addition to the semi-active suspension, the BMW R 1250 RT features other auxiliary driving systems. Highlight for the Shift Assitant Pro, which allows gear changes without the need to engage the clutch.
There is also a complete package of safety systems, like other BMW motorcycles. ABS brakes optimized for curve and Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) use parameters of a tilt sensor to provide the driver with more accurate responses.
There are also three Driving modes “Rain“, “Road” e “Dynamic“that can be easily activated by means of a button. In each mode the parameters of the suspension, brakes and traction control are changed. And as it could not be missing there is still the Cruise Control, a system responsible for electronic speed control and keeping it constant.
Heated seat and handles, system keyless, GPS preparation; Bluetooth audio system; tire pressure monitoring and LED headlights complete the package of this luxurious German touring.
“Bringing a model like the BMW R 1250 RT to Brazil attests to the commitment we have made to the brand’s customers in offering options with the most different skills. In this case, a motorcycle developed for long trips, versatile, modern, attractive and extremely reliable” , says Julian Mallea, Director of BMW Motorrad do Brasil.
All this embedded technology comes in two color options: alpine white or planet blue, an exclusive option of the optional 719 package. In this case, in addition to the blue color, the package includes differentials such as the head cover and the engine cover in anodized aluminum. and brown leather bench.
