MCN (Motorcycle News) said of this boxer twin, 'The BMW R1150RT has all the comfort needed to blitz Europe – and it handles too. Proof that a motorcycle can take you, a pillion and plenty of luggage to those Alpine passes can be fun once you get there. The R1150RT is lighter than most full tourers of the time and superbly built too – but it's no rocket in a straight line.' Praise enough. BMW Motorrad has long been thought of as the manufacturer of long-distance bikes; cover-the-distance rather than touring, as such. In the late 1970s they switched to a different kind of bike, subtly at first. The first RT – Reise-Tourer, Reise for Travel – came in 1975. The first of these were the so-called 'air-heads' with the /7 series R100RT came in 1979. The formula was still 'standard BMW': 980 cc, 70 horsepower at 7,250 rpm, horizontally opposed twin with shaft drive. 1995 was the launch year for the 'oil-head' (although air was still a major cooling element), as in R1100RT. 4-valve heads, 5-speed gearbox, Telelever and Paralever front and rear suspension (respectively), ABS brakes, and an electrically adjusted windshield were standard. 'In 2002, BMW launched the R1150RT, providing the same basic platform with increased engine capacity and horsepower, fully linked, power-assisted ABS brakes, revised front lighting system, and a 6-speed gearbox.'
This low mileage example offered has been in long term storage. It starts and runs today having been recently serviced. It's ready to go. A new seat comes with the bike.
