Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
BMW's liquid-cooled boxer in a sport tourering chassis. While it has basically the same engine as the R1200GS, GS Adventure and RT, it makes more torque at low revs, likely due to re-designed intake and exhaust systems. Stock, the RS comes with Rain and Road riding modes, but others are available at extra cost, along with traction control, electronic suspension adjustment and other techno-wizardry.
