Motorcycle Overview

1998 BMW R1200C Motorcycle Because it is so different than other cruiser motorcycles, some people dont believe that the 1200C actually fits into the cruiser phylum. Thats only true if you believe that a cruiser must have a V-twin engine and traditional American styling. However, if you believe a cruiser simply requires a certain attitude, riding position and nostalgic styling, then the BMW fits the bill perfectly. This 1 owner garage kept cruiser has never been wrecked or toppled. A few minor scratches are seen throughout, but overall in very nice condition. The 1200cc electronic fuel injected engine, will take you smoothly down the road. A single clutch 5 speed transmission completes the package. Viewers with a limited scope may take issue with the Telelever front suspension, but BMWs use of telescopic forks is relatively new. The Earles fork, to which this has a vague resemblance, was a BMW tradition. The Telelever also permitted BMW to minimize the aluminum frame and make the engine a primary chassis component. The geometry of the design reduces dive under braking. At the rear, the single shock and one-sided swing arm impede the view of the wire-spoked rear wheel less than a hardtail. The wheels are the perfect example of BMWs ability to meld tradition (wire spokes) with modern technology (tubeless tires). Stopping comes from disc brakes. The tall handlebar and the small passenger pad (which hinges up to become a rider backrest and reveal a luggage platform) give the bike a chopperesque quality. The lines of the tank, the rear fenders shape and the black-with-white-pinstripes finish evoke BMW models from even further back in time than the 1948 model recalled by Harleys Heritage Springer. All in all, a piece of BMW technical history especially as it relates to the front suspension configuration. Technology mixed with nostalgia, give this bike a truly unique look, as well as utilizing the latest innovations.
