New R1200S

Postby omg1010 » Wed Mar 14, 2012 4:14 am

Good morning folks,

some of you will recall me having been active here about the R1100R model which I still own. However I had put my hands on a wonderful R1200S in Palermo/Italy which had lately arrived by truck. Obviously some modding was required :mrgreen: to bring the bike to my taste.

Basically I changed the valve heads to powder-coated black, mufflers from italian company HPE and exhaust from the italian company ZARD. Also a slightly elevated windscreen. Also I installed front turnsignals in black/smoke and mini-turnsignals rear.

Hope you like it.

Best regards from Germany.

Oliver-

That's a nice dyno chart for the S. Assuming the performance was measured after the modifications?

So how do you choose between two excellent motorcycles?!
Now: Rockster2, S1000R, K1300S
Then: R850R, R1100R, R1150R, Rockster1, R1200C, F800S, etc.

Mornin Mark,

the dyno chart shows before and after (the reprogramming of the ECU). Just by re-programming the gain was about 10 HP and 5 NM of torque. Bike runs fine and smooth as silk. Its a huge difference over the 1100R (which I still love though and I think I'll keep her ...). The choice is easy, once I am on my own (most of the time) = 1200S, once my financial controller decides to join = R1100R ... :lol:

Good looking bike. BMW have made some very stylish boxers in the past that somehow seem to be lacking from their current production.
