Brutal Beauty: The new K 1200 R combines a bold image with high technology

Woodcliff Lake, NJ - May 18, 2005 ... Just when you thought the growing "naked bike" segment - sportbikes shorn of their plastic wrappers, unveiled for all to see - was all about showing off and nothing about substance and style, here comes the 2006 BMW K 1200 R. Unlike the weightlifter who can barely scratch his own back, the K 1200 R is powerfully built yet agile, massively quick yet perfectly docile for those times you want to take it easy. It's the ideal combination of menace and class.

BMW has taken advantage of the incredible technology housed in the new K 1200 S - a straight-line speed machine that also accelerates, turns and stops like a truly modern superbike - to create the K 1200 R. In fact, except for revised bodywork and ergonomics, the two bikes are very much alike.

POWER, PRECISION, CONTROL, AND PRESTIGE: THE NEW K 1200 S IS A STUNNING ACHIEVEMENT NO MATTER HOW YOU DEFINE IT

Woodcliff Lake, NJ - May 18, 2005... In motorcycling as in boxing, the unexpected moves are sometimes the most effective. BMW, successful for more than eight decades with reliable, durable and, well... sensible motorcycles, has unleashed a most unexpected performance vehicle into the hands of sporting enthusiasts the world over.

The new 2005 K 1200 S is a synthesis of everything BMW has learned from decades of motorsport success and detailed motorcycle development. It is a sport model without precedent and devoid of compromise. The K 1200 S exists to define maximum performance with unprecedented sophistication and technology-enhanced safety measures. Yes, it accelerates aggressively enough to take your breath away-thanks to an all-new four-cylinder engine with 167 horsepower-but also embodies everything BMW has learned about rider comfort and safety.
