When BMW introduced its all-new 'Boxer' twins in 1992, few people would have predicted that within a few years the range would include a 'cruiser' model, a type of motorcycle never previously offered by the German manufacturer. This was the R1200C, which combined the new fuel-injected 8-valve engine with BMW's Telelever front suspension and a traditional Monolever rear end rather than the new Paralever. Its styling was typically cruiser, featuring a low seat, forward-mounted footrests, 'ape hanger' handlebars and copious amounts of chrome. Unlikely as it may seem, the R1200C even featured in the 1997 James Bond movie 'Tomorrow Never Dies', being ridden in a chase scene by Pierce Brosnan playing the eponymous British secret agent. Delivered new to France and last insured for the road in 2004, this example has covered only 1,291 kilometres from new and is offered with sales brochure, owner's manual, service booklet (unstamped) and French Carte Grise normale.
