You don't have to dream of California. This cruiser brings this unique vibe right to your doorstep. Its low seat height invites you to hop on immediately. As a road surfer, you might want to give your ears some fitting music to listen to. And then: riding towards an endless horizon. Alternatively, you may simply want to listen to the sound of the boxer engine and let its drive system roll you through cities or rock around winding country roads. Enjoy this unique #Soulfuel feeling – life is easy on the R 12.

Laid back instead of fast forward

The R 12 epitomizes a casual lifestyle. Dress code: smart casual. Style: classic. Iconic design features, like the round instrument, make it unmistakeable. The memorable design is primarily defined by the tank, seat, airbox cover and the front and rear mudguards.

What you see is what you feel

Just look at it standing there; like a promise. Every journey on it will feel like this: simple, beautiful, relaxed. The classic cruiser flyline, which slopes down towards the rear, is formed by the solo seat in conjunction with the large rear-wheel cover. The teardrop-shaped steel tank, modeled on the former toaster tanks, blends in harmoniously. The rear section looks compact and coordinated thanks to the function-integrated indicator lamps with integrated rear light. 19" front wheel and 16" rear wheel round off the flat, laid-back appearance.

"The R 12 cruiser from BMW Motorrad is inviting you out on a ride."

Customize it!

The basis for individual ideas is the backbone concept. The classic tubular spaceframe, the flat suspension strut and the new airbox give maximum freedom in the design of the tank seat area. With customizing parts such as the drag bar handlebars or the custom rear end trim, for example, you can give your R 12 a striking bobber style in no time at all.

Rock ’n’ roll on the road

With the legendary drive and the ROLL and ROCK riding modes, you can switch from seriously laid-back to dynamic whenever you feel like it. This boxer engine optimized for the custom cruiser delivers a rich torque and fine acceleration on the road at low revs. The ROLL riding mode is optimized for a balanced cruiser feeling. The ROCK riding mode makes you want to chase bends dynamically with optimum stability. As a special highlight, the R 12 moves a little rockier when idling.

Hang Loose

How relaxed can you be when riding? The special handlebar and footrest ergonomics ensure an outstanding cruiser feeling with a relaxed sitting position. The low seat height is inviting and as perfect for first-time riders as it is for born-again bikers. More reasons to stay relaxed: ABS Pro regulates the braking effect depending on the lean angle and DTC also manages traction. Lean back and enjoy your ride.

The spirit of easy

Just get on. The R 12 will take you anywhere in comfort. Start without a key thanks to Keyless Ride. Use your smartphone for sat nav with the optional ConnectedRide Control, including mobile phone holder. Have everything displayed even more clearly on the optional Digital Display. Shift between gears without actuating the clutch with the shift assistant of the optional comfort package.

Ride on & on & on.
