Climb on the ultimate muscle bike and get a grip
as you accelerate in a mere 2.9 seconds from 0-100 km/h, and
from 60 to 140 km/h in 7.1 seconds. Boasting not only 163 bhp
and 127 Nm, but also one of the most state-of-the-art high
performance engines with 1200cc and 4 cylinders. Use the 6-speed
transmission to select the perfect engine speed – plenty of
punch at low revs or a full-on howl at 10,000 rpm: the in-line
4-cylinder engine is bursting with power. Even when stationary
this machine means business: where else have you seen such lines
and such muscles? From the tank and seat line to the rear and
the surface finish, from matt black to metallic silver. Then
there’s the chassis: BMW Motorrad Duolever front-wheel
suspension as standard, BMW Motorrad Paralever at the rear.
Electronic Suspension Adjustment (ESA) and BMW Motorrad ABS are
available – to ensure supreme performance when decelerating
