Awaiting a new R1250R Sports

Postby Mac47 » Wed Mar 06, 2019 11:46 am

Cannot get my new bike until 6th April after the official launch :( The most modern incarnation of the boxer engine ever. Wonder if it is as soulful as my old BoxerCup, loved that bike.

Chalk and cheese. I have the 1200 r lc with all toys. It makes my old bcr feel like well an old Bcr! Have you bought the sports handlebar option?

Not ready to take the plunge on a new 1250. The 1200 lc with the toys is a bloody fantastic bike so I am looking forward to your comments.

Hi Chris,

Not got the sports handle bars as being a bit of a large lad I don't want to be more uncomfortable than necessary :D

I test rode the R1200R for a whole day and found it to be first class, I then stupidly bought the GS :drunken: Its a good bike but a bit on the heavy sight if you have short legs. Having decided to bin that I have gone back to the R1250R in place of the R1200R. I'll drop a line on here once I take collection and get her out for a spin. The dealer tells me that from his demo day you can certainly tell the difference and the new digital dash and other goodies make a real difference. I know he would say that, but since you cannot order R1200 any more there was little choice.

The BCR is no doubt some way behind the R1250, but nostalgia can be a great draw in later life.

Cheers

Mac

Nice.
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Hi Paul,

Its the same as mine with the dynamic package, you can tell by the gold forks and chrome exhaust.

Its got the pannier fittings, which looks like the only difference.

Certainly looks the dogs, just wandering why my dealer says he does not have his in stock!!!

Thanks for the heads up.

Mac
