The 2014 BMW R1200RT is powered by the same air/water-cooled BMW boxer engine found in the R1200GS, but now comes equipped with a heavier crankshaft and alternator to help the engine running smoother while longer gear ratios keeping the revs lower than on the R1200GS.

The fairing of the R1200RT also has been redesigned with a new headlight that resembles to the one from the K1600GT, with ring-shaped LED daytime running lights available as an option. Furthermode, the new bodywork also comes with a 5.7-inch TFT color display and the power-adjustable windshield which is said provide much better weather protection.
