The BMW R1200RT is a touring model that is destined for longer rides with the radial DOHC valve operating system from the HP2 Sport. It has an increase in thrust from the lower engine speed range through to above the medium range. The new valve control in the exhaust system ensures an understated but more forceful sound. It has a new audio system available as an optional extra, with the advanced operating concept Multi-Controller carrying out virtually all commands from a single unit
