Buyer's Guide > R1250RS
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
This sport-tourer leans to the more aggressive side of the field. With the new Shiftcam R1250 engine, the RS makes more power than ever, and also has better fuel efficiency. Hard luggage isn't standard, but is available as an accessory, along with sporty electronic suspension and leaning ABS . The charging system puts out 508 watts, so you can power whatever heated gear as you want, and bolt on plenty of accessory lights.
