Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > R1200RT
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
This luxury touring bike is built around the same basic platform as the R1200GS, but without the off-road capability. There are several optional add-ons like electronic suspension adjustment, shift assist and others that transform this into a high-end tourer. It also has the best fairing in the business for covering long distances in inclement weather. ABS Pro (leaning ABS) is now an option, and there are a few other tweaks, but it's mostly the same as it's been for the past few years.
