BMW K 1200R Power Cup
BMW Motorrad hasn't wasted any time in getting its performance-oriented K1200R at the forefront of motorcycle competition, and is replacing the popular BMW BoxerCup that is run in conjunction with each European MotoGP round with a series based on K1200R racers. Powering the new one-make championship is a race honed version of the K 1200 R with some added carbon fibre aerodynamic enahncements and an even warmer version of the bike producing 175 bhp 129 kW.
In race trim the K 1200 R tips the scales at 230 kg thanks to the carbon fibre engine undertray, the high-grade lightweight material also adorns the lamp surround, hand protectors, intake panels, rear pillion seat cover and the lightweight LASER racing exhaust system which boosts performance and delivers a sporting exhaust note in keeping with its surroundings.
The semi-automatic racing gearbox is an innovation for the K 1200 R. Other race-bred changes to the machine include an adjustable footrest system, Metzeler Racetec racing tires, while a lap timer and gear shift indicator feature on the instrument panel.
