We’re about to witness some great new upgrades to the powertrain of the BMW R1200 series. The bestselling sport touring bike lineup has some performance innovations coming at it and they are quite thrilling. As of right the 2018 model year, the GS and RT models have a 1170cc flat-twin boxer engine, but 2019 will bring upgrades not only in engine size but features as well.
For obvious reasons, the upgrade is prompting a name change. The R1200 line is now known as the R1250 line, which includes the R1250GS and R1250RT. The newest R1250 engine adheres to Euro V efficiency standards so while the bike has additional power, its fuel efficiency and emissions have improved. This added performance and efficiency is due to the new variable valve timing system BMW Motorrad is calling BMW ShiftCam Technology. BMW ShiftCam allows the new 1254cc engine to translate that power to your tires smoothly and efficiently. Expect a power boost from 125 horsepower to 134 horsepower.
