Let’s talk about the third new motorcycle from BMW R1200RS! The flat-twin boxer engine on the new R 1200 RS is the same DOHC drive unit that
already powers the R 1200 GS, R 1200 GS Adventure as well as the R 1200 RT and the new R 1200 R, but Compared to the engines on the GS, GS Adventure and RT, torque has actually been increased slightly at low revs.
