2020 BMW R 1250 R | Road Test Review

Photos by Kevin Wing.

With its competition hard on the gas and more stringent Euro 5 emissions, noise and durability regulations looming on the 2020 horizon, for the 2019 model year BMW revamped all five of its boxer motorcycle models powered by the liquid-cooled flat-opposed twin. Bumped from 1,170cc to 1,254cc with a larger bore and longer stroke, the DOHC, 4-valve-per-cylinder boxers also received a form of variable valve timing (VVT) that increases power, broadens the powerband, improves fuel economy and lowers emissions and the required fuel AKI from 89 to 87.

Though all five liquid-cooled boxers were revamped for 2019, the R 1250 R and R 1250 RS have only recently arrived as 2020 models.

Cost and limited space on motorcycles make VVT more common in the automotive world, and to date it?s only been used in a few Japanese and Italian motorcycle models to open additional intake valves or increase intake valve lift and duration at higher engine speeds. BMW?s Shift Cam VVT is unique in that it slides or ?shifts? the boxer engine?s intake cams left or right, engaging either a partial or full-load cam lobe under certain loads at low speeds, or at 5,000 rpm regardless. The shift happens in milliseconds so it?s undetectable, but the result is a noticeable improvement in smooth grunt at low rpm and more power on top. The last Shift Cam R 1250 we tested in 2019 ? which has an identical engine to the R 1250 R reviewed here ? made 121.5 horsepower at 7,800 rpm and 92.5 lb-ft of torque at 6,600 at the rear wheel, a significant improvement of about 14% on both counts over the last R 1200 engine we ran on the Jett Tuning dyno.
Relaxed seating with a moderate seat height make the R 1250 R a comfortable long-distance companion, though a windscreen would help at higher sustained speeds.

The R 1250 R is the lightest of the five R 1250 models (a claimed 527 pounds wet for the base model, or 545 pounds gussied up with $4,645 worth of optional equipment like our test bike), so the additional power and broader powerband of the Shift Cam engine make a noticeable difference in the bike?s fun factor. Acceleration is crisp right off idle, and power builds gradually and is easily modulated at low speeds in any gear or riding mode. Once the revs break about 5,250 rpm the urge comes on urgently, until the engine is ripping hard near its 9,000-rpm redline. Whether two-up touring or solo sport riding, solid, usable midrange or screaming top-end power is never more than a downshift away. There?s no detectable flat spot or surge from the Shift Cam doing its thing at 5,000 rpm or anywhere else, just loads of smooth drive and great sound from the single muffler that ranges from purring kitten to racing twin. Some vibration creeps into the grips at higher engine speeds, but it?s of the low-frequency, twin-cylinder variety that isn?t intrusive, especially since you?ll need to be shifting quite soon at that point.

Shift Cam VVT tech in the 1,254cc opposed twin...
