BMW has revealed updates to its R 1250 RS, the brand’s most aggressive sports touring option that sits below the S 1000 RR in its ‘Sports’ line-up.

Pricing for the 2023 R 1250 RS has yet to be confirmed, although it is expected to launch locally in three variants including the middling RS Sport and range-topping Triple Black. For reference, the outgoing model is available from $25,240 rideaway.

This platform is also seen on the naked R 1250 R, and the long-haul-touring R 1250 RT, with all three models drawing power from a 100kW/143Nm 1254cc boxer engine. The quickest of the trio, the R 1250 RS, is capable of accelerating from zero-to-100km/h in 3.3 seconds.

For 2023, the BMW R 1250 RS adopts a number of changes including more advanced traction control and ABS, as part of a revised rider mode package.

The update also sees tweaks to the bike’s TFT dash software, a new USB socket and BMW’s Intelligent Emergency Call function fitted as standard.

As with all new BMW motorcycles in Australia, the 2023 R 1250 RS will come with a five-year warranty as standard.
