The New BMW R 1250 RT

The Renewed BMW R 1250 RT Brings Innovation to the BMW Motorrad Lineup

The flat-twin boxer engine has been a staple of BMW Motorrad RT models for decades and riders appreciate the smooth, reliable power it provides. It’s always been an excellent engine for long road trips and quick jaunts alike. Now, with the new 2019 BMW R 1250 RT, the boxer engine gets even better. This improvement is thanks to the introduction of BMW ShiftCam Technology that adds a variable valve timing system to BMW’s tried and true boxer system. Come to BMW Motorcycles of Riverside to see the new 2019 BMW R 1250 RT for yourself and experience BMW ShiftCam Technology.

BMW ShiftCam Technology improves BMW’s boxer engine across the board including speed, emissions, efficiency, ride comfort and throttle control  

The new heart of the 2019 BMW R 1250 RT is something to be excited about. More displacement is just one factor; the R 1250 RT has been boosted to 1,254cc over the 1,170cc of the bike it replaces. Additionally, BMW ShiftCam variable valve timing is rolling out for the first time ever to bring revolutionary control, comfort and speed to this refreshed bike. Believe it or not, it even makes the bike sound better. BMW ShiftCam Technology introduces variable valve timing and valve stroke on intake that allows for asynchronous opening of the two intake valves depending to improve combustion and make throttle inputs smoother and more responsive. In addition to new ShiftCam technology, improvements have been made to the camshaft drive that now uses a toothed chain instead of a roller chain. Oil supply, injection valves and the bike’s exhaust system have all been improved as well.

Two standard riding modes put you in control

The BMW R 1250 RT includes two riding modes as standard to give you a higher level of control over your bike depending on the situation. Use Automatic Stability Control to make sure your bike is getting good traction in slippery scenarios. Hill Start Control makes it easier to set-off on a steep slope. Try out these rider control features when you test ride the BMW R 1250 RT in Riverside.

Additional riding modes available as ex works option with Riding Modes Pro: Dynamic Traction Control, ABS Pro, Hill Start Control Pro and Dynamic Brake Assistant

“Riding Modes Pro” is available as an option to even further increase the level of control you have over the 2019 BMW R 1250 RT. Dynamic Traction Control provides improved acceleration in a banking position. ABS Pro (standard in the BMW R 1250 RT) offers better braking control, especially in a banking position. Dynamic Brake Control helps eliminates unintentional accelerator activation during difficult braking. Dynamic Brake Control additionally interrupts engine control and reduces drive torque in the rear wheel to fully take advantage of the bike’s braking power to keep the bike stable and shorten stopping distance.

Fully automatic load compensation with electronic suspension Dynamic ESA “Next Generation” adapts to your needs

Add the optional Dynamic ESA “Next Generation” automatic damping to make sure your bike’s suspension is always suited for your riding state and the maneuvers you’re making. Dynamic ESA lets you easily dial in your motorcycle’s damping to maximize ride response and stability. Learn more about this feature when you visit a BMW Motorcycles of Riverside where our expert staff can show you the ropes of these excellent new driving modes.
