BMW R1200RS

I took over the machine for the first time on 24.4.1998 as a replacement for the stolen GS.The machine is 1 1/2 years old (first registration 2/97) and had 7790 km on the odometer. I was with it on the Nürburgring. Afterwards I gave it back to the dealer at mileage 10800 km, who did the necessary 10,000 km maintenance. On 18 May 1998 the machine came back to me for the second time. On 27 September 98 it has already 22,000 km on the odometer. And the counter keeps on turning.

And here are the technical data:

  • 1171 cc engine capacity
  • 98 HP (72 kW) at 7000 rpm
  • 118 Nm max. torque at 5500 rpm
  • 225 km/h top speed
  • 285 kg weight
