BMW’S wholsesale sweep­ing away of the R1200 en­gine, re­plac­ing it with the new Shift­cam 1250 that made its de­but in the R1250GS, has also reached the R-model. In ad­di­tion to the valu­able en­gine boost, it also gets sus­pen­sion and elec­tron­ics up­dates and the lovely 6.5in Con­nec­tiv­ity TFT dash. In ad­di­tion, the R is also avail­able with new ‘sports’ han­dle­bars for a more dy­namic rid­ing po­si­tion, and if you’re into factory bling, there’s an ar­ray of ‘Op­tion 719’ af­ter­mar­ket ac­ces­sories and fin­ishes on of­fer.
