Too bad the R1200C is no longer manufactured almost two years is the BMW R 1200 C on the market and already the Bavarian Cruiser can save themselves hardly praise and credit. Right in seven European countries readers of the respective motorcycle magazines chose the bike to the “Cruiser of the year” in 1999. And the flamboyant Boxer has won even a gold medal. The “industrial designers society of America” awarded the prize: “the best product designs of the year 1999”. Congratulations congratulations BMW! Nothing is actually to add more. The BMW R1200C Cruiser is a two-cylinder Boxer engine which was built by the Bavarian Motor works from 1997 to 2004. The little sister was built from 1999 to 2000″R850C. Identical, look absolutely identical, but with a smaller engine.
The design of the R 1200 C is independent and apart from the classic chopper. In contrast to other manufacturers, in the Cruiser / chopper segment focusing clearly on the models of Harley-Davidson, BMW has tried to incorporate your own history in this model. A novelty was the Use of the BMW typical two-cylinder Boxer engine instead of a V-twin. The front part of the frame, to which the Telelever suspension is attached, consists of die cast aluminium elements, while the rear part made of steel tubes is made. The engine is part of the load-bearing construction and enables a top speed of 168 mph with a capacity of 45 kW (61 HP). To enlarge the wheelbase, the single-sided swingarm at the rear to 90 mm was lengthened and sprung from a mono lever suspension. This extended the length of the Cruiser on 2415 mm.
The catalyst made of chrome-plated stainless steel belongs to the standard equipment. After setting the R 1200 C and the models in 2005, BMW has developed no successor of the cruisers. Meanwhile, there are only a few vehicles in the free sale and the price has now adopted a significant collector value. For me, the BMW R1200C has been always a dream bike. Visually very appealing and a powerful Boxer engine equipped with very comfortable to drive. Long I got on the Internet for a shop looking for the an R1200C rented to test this time intensive for a weekend. Unfortunately, this search was unsuccessful so far so I myself bought BMW R1200C. Because I can imagine that it goes another driver like me, I’ve decided to rent my R1200C. The machine can be obtained on the website. Of course, the BMW with a fully comprehensive insurance is rented.
