Advanced technology comes in many forms. In the 2020 BMW R 1250 RT, it reaches its peak in the suspension, ergonomics, and navigation/communication.

Rear and front suspension are extremely important for keeping you safe and in control on the highways and byways. With components such as a Duolever system, a single-sided swingarm, telelever, Dynamic ESA, WAD spring elements, and USD forks, the bumps and curves will feel like an afterthought.

The available comfort technology on the 2020 BMW R 1250 RT includes:

  • Automatic heated grips

The research team at BMW works tirelessly to improve the safety of each and every one of their motorcycles. With new technology like Dynamic Brake Control, Automatic Stability Control, and Dynamic Traction Control, you’ll be safer than ever no matter what the road throws at you.

Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) with optional Ride Modes Pro assists you in emergency braking by counteracting the involuntary throttle actuation in challenging riding situations. The system intervenes to reduce throttle and increase the braking force. The results are improved safety and optimal use of braking power to stabilize your bike and shorten the braking distance.

The available Automatic Stability Control (ASC) anti-slip system and available ABS Pro limits the amount of engine drive torque transmitted to the tires based on road surface conditions. When riding conditions change, you’ll be glad your 2020 BMW R 1250 RT is outfitted with Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) which reduces torque to the drive wheel when it begins to spin.
