Compared to the outgoing 2006-2014 model the suspension now uses a conventional upside down fork rather than a Telelever system like R1200GS and the Boxer engine is now liquid cooled. The 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre up front and 180/55 at the rear.
Various trim levels are available and the mid-range £11,600 R1200R Sport gets you white paint, matching belly pan, red frame, mini sport screen, Riding Modes Pro, DTC and the quickshifter.
The top of the line £11,800 R1200R Exclusive gets you a dark grey colour scheme with gold fork, ESA, cruise control, additional ride modes, centre stand, luggage prep and LED indicators but it loses the mini screen from the Sport.
Accessories include the Akrapovic exhaust, quickshifter (Gear Assist Pro), Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), electronic suspension (ESA), cruise control, low 760 mm seat, high 820 mm seat, keyless start, sports screen, Ride Modes Pro (Dynamic, Custom), LED indicators, centre stand, heated grips, Chrome exhaust, TPMS and luggage options.

- Quite a following
- Plenty of power
- Satnav is good but overly expensive
- Heavy steering at slow speeds
2017: A few small changes to meet Euro 4 requirements, sidelights and judder damper on transmission output shaft. Cornering ABS Pro and dynamic brake light are now options.
