- The 1170 cc Boxer is claimed to produce around 61 hp and 72 lb-ft at 3,000 rpm - we would agree that is in the ballpark.
- A new feature on all Cruisers is the EVO brake system as well as Integral ABS available as an option.
- Rear suspension comes with a single rear shock absorber that incorporates a new feature called Travel-Related Damping.
- The new R 1200 C Montauk comes from the factory equipped with full integral anti-lock brakes (ABS) and comes standard with both Digital Motor Electronics and a three-way catalytic converter.
- The front suspension features a caster setting designed for a relaxed riding position. The Telelever fork is carried over from the R 1200 CL, as is the wide 150mm tire.
- The stacked headlight, small windscreen and wide front fender give the Montauk a healthy, unique look from the front.
- The R 1200 C Montauk's instrument cluster includes an electronic speedometer, tachometer, and a new housing.
- This is the third model in the BMW Cruiser family since the original R 1200 C was introduced in 1997.
