The new RT has a new air/water-cooled BMW boxer engine with even more torque and 125 bhp for powerful propulsion. Thanks to the highly active electronically controlled suspension system ASC, the machine is still very easy to control and offers stability on every country road.

The standard modes "Rain" and "Road" can also be activated at the press of a button, adapting the motorcycle perfectly to the weather conditions and road surface as required. The Board Computer Pro and the familiar heated grips round off the range of basic equipment. The special equipment for the new RT enables even simpler handling of the machine while still offering an increased level of comfort.

For example, the electronic suspension BMW Dynamic ESA responds within a fraction of a second to changing surfaces. Shift Assistant Pro allows the rider to shift up and down without using the clutch or throttle valve. Another option available is "Dynamic" mode, which guarantees maximum riding fun for sporty, dynamic motorcyclists.

Also available as an optional extra: a central locking system which also locks both cases by remote control, a cruise control system and lots more besides.
