As expected, BMW Motorrad has finally added its liquid-cooled boxer engine design to the R1200R roadster model, debuting the 2015 BMW R1200R at INTERMOT today.

Using the same 125hp engine that powers the BMW R1200GS and BMW R1200RT, the new BMW R1200R makes more power, more linearly, than its predecessor, though keeps the old R1200R’s basic roadster look and feel intact.

Updating an already iconic model in the BMW Motorrad lineup, there is not much to add to the 2015 BMW R1200R’s debut, as it is a pretty straight-forwad affair. It is notable however that anti-locking brakes (ABS), automatic stability control (ASC), and two riding modes as standard, while the Pro with Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) riding mode is an optional extra.

Additionally, when fitted with the optional “Pro” riding mode, the 2015 BMW R1200R also adds DTC with banking detection, as well as two extra riding modes – “Dynamic” and “User” – to its technical repertoire. Electronic suspension adjustment (ESA) is also fitted to the new BMW R1200R, and as an optional feature.
