BMW R 1200 R design details and exhaust sound
2013 BMW R 1200 R - very powerful naked with an 1170 cc twin boxer engine
that now produces 110 HP and even more impressive 119 Nm (88 lb-ft of
torque). The engine now likes to be revved high - unlike previous
generations of the BMW's big boxer. Over 5000-6000 rpm it really delivers.
I was honestly surprised by how agile it really was above that range. This
boxer is quieter, smoother and more powerful. It's not difficult to find
the right position sitting on it. Wide seat and adequately wide handlebars
make it pleasant to ride for a long time. However, I found the seat's edges
to be quite hard and sharp, what can make your thighs hurt while standing
and waiting for the green light. It's not the case when you sit on the bike
with your feet on the foot pegs. Other than that and ignoring the fact that
the bike is not very tall so your legs won't be straighten up, the position
is absolutely OK.
Brakes are great - just like in other top-of-the-line BMW motorcycles. ABS
works great, comfort mode in ESA makes the bike really comfortable on
moderately rough roads (strongly limited because of short travel of the
wheels). Front Telelever suspension and rear Parelever with drive shaft
make the rider feel even more confident. Traction control (ASC) is crap...
It's not BMW's fault though - so far motorcycle industry is just unable of
providing perfectly working TC. Don't get me wrong - it works but sometimes
makes the bike so unpredictable that it becomes the danger itself. You can
see it at the end of the video when I start off with full throttle, the
bike makes a short wheelie, slows down, accelerates again and I am
struggling not to fall off. Nice system but it's better to turn it off if
you want to ride aggressively and start off fast. Thanks to BMW for letting
us turn it off with a hold of a button. Works great on slippery surfaces
Optional sport screen does the job of cutting turbulence but above 130 kph
(80 mph) airflow successfully makes you slow down. I'd recommend getting a
touring windshield for longer trips. Another great upgrade would be an
aftermarket Exhaust that would make R
1200 R sound as it should from the beginning. The thing is just too damn
quiet. Doesn't sound bad for a boxer though, just needs a little bit of
extra deep tones. Akrapović Exhaust
is available right from the dealership.
Overall a very nice and unique motorcycle with an interesting engine,
nicely equipped, with bells and whistles and fantastic brakes. Probably the
best classic naked on the market.

Podsumowując: R 1200 R to oryginalny motocykl z ciekawym silnikiem i
kanapą, która nie pozwala długo stać na światłach. Bardzo dynamiczny,
bardzo oszczędny i elastyczny, z doskonałymi hamulcami i maksymalnym
możliwym w dzisiejszych czasach wyposażeniem z zakresu bezpieczeństwa.
Nie jest to najlżej prowadzący się motocykl, ani specjalnie wygodny
turystyk, ale rekompensuje to bardzo dobrą stabilnością przy
prędkościach wyższych niż manewrowe i nietuzinkowym wyglądem. Tłumik

The all-new BMW i8 Full Review
Subscribe : http://www.youtube.com/user/Auto1News?sub_confirmation=1
With its fascinating holistic concept, the BMW i8 brings the vision of a
modern and sustainable sports car to life. The highly-emotional design
immediately makes it clear what qualities the BMW i8 has to offer. Dynamic
proportions show off its acceleration potential even when it's standing
still; and yet it doesn't rely on being a pure-blooded sports car. Its
aesthetics always follow a functional goal: for example, more aerodynamics
for maximum efficiency and absolute performance.
