Dissapointed as I thought I was buying a top marque motorcycle. BMW dealer was not able to rectify the poor idleing at slow speeds. Would't buy another one and has put me off of thinking about buying the new R1200 RT which is a pity as I like the look of this new model.
Comfortable seating position and handling on corners
Too many quality issues, front forks corroding after a year, new gearbox @ 12,000 miles, condensation in headlamp and other clocks, inacurate fuel gauge, poor running at slow speed (twin spark model) difficult to fill up to the top with fuel, leaking pannier.
Questions & Answers
What does the motronics fuse regulate? It kept blowing. Especially when revs are high and dropped suddenly. I reset the electronics, like when you change the battery, and hasnt had the problem again, but am not sure whether this was the issue to deal with?
How many years BMW produced R1150RT!???!
2002 BMW R1150RT with 117,000 kms.
An otherwise excellent bike, however occasionally experiences a Total Electronic Power Loss when changing Gears.
No rhyme or reason (Shifting Up - Shifting Down) just out of the blue all power cuts, and I have to Press the Start Button to wind her up again.
As mentioned above, an otherwise excellent, problem free Dream Bike?
