Thread: I am all in on a used 2020 r1250r...unless someone says donít do it :)

  1. #16
    Owner of a 2020 R1250R for 7 months with 7K miles. Love the bike and the new engine and transmission are phenomenal.

    TFT display is nice but the Navigation app is useless. I have Navigator 6 but in hindsight I have used my phone with Google Maps.

    5'11" with 32" inseam and seating position is all day comfortable with Sargent seat.

    Wind protection is decent with V-stream Sport/Touring shield.

    I came off a 2016 R1200GS; prior to that had 2010 R1200R and 2000 K1200RS BMW's.

    I can't speak to the shift cam, but going from the 2005 hex head to the 2016 wet head was like night and day IMO (in a good way).

    If you like the way the R rides, go for it. You can always fit a bigger wind screen or change the bars later if you find they aren't exactly what you want. I find that my RT is great in all but the hottest weather. When its mid 90s and over, I'd like to have a R (or other naked bike... R Nine T / S1000R / Ducati Monster) to jump on and get some air flowing at me. The R is going to weigh less than something like an RT and therefore be a bit more nimble.

    With a year and a half left on the warranty you're in a good position if any issues arise as well.
    Oops...my bad. Thanks now I can stop reading the Oilhead sub-form lol.

    Very nice setup, even storage behind the seat it seems. Someone just sold me a used MRA screen...maybe could be used on the used 2020 r1250r if I purchase it though did just see the HR Pan America reveal. That engine seems to use a VVT that works through the entire rev range (could be wrong). Will jump to the GS sub-forum to see what GS owners think of that ride lol.

    Ok, short jump there is no GS sub-form though did find a link to topic on the hd bike. Liked one comment, nice legs ugly face
