THIS 2000 BMW R-SERIES R1200C IS A TRUE BLEND OF FUNCTION AND BEAUTY. AND WITH ONLY 4558 TOTAL CRUISERS BUILT IN 2000, THIS IS TRULY A LIMITED PRODUCTION MACHINE THAT COULD APPRECIATE IN VALUE.
This beautifully maintained BMW R SERIES-R1200C is almost perfect in both form and function. Check out the suspension on this amazing motorcycle. Doesn't the rear suspension remind you of a top notch motocross dirt bike? And doesn't it look great? The rear suspension specs are Die cast aluminium single sided swinging arm with BMW Motorrad Monolever; central strut, spring pre-load mechanically adjustable. What this means to you is a dialed in controllable ride that you can adjust to your own weight and can cater to your preference for a softer or firmer ride.
THIS GERMAN CRUISER IS SOMETIMES REFERRED TO AS THE "Bond Look-A-Like" AS THIS MODEL WAS USED IN THE JAMES BOND THRILLER "Tomorrow Never Dies".
EVEN THE FRONT SUSPENSION IS SPECIAL. SURE IT HAS FRONT FORKS LIKE MOST MOTORCYCLES, BUT CHECK OUT THE ADDITION. EVER SEE ANYTHING LIKE THAT? TOTALLY COOL.
BMW calls the front suspension: "BMW Motorrad Telelever; stanchion diameter 35 mm, central strut". I call it AWESOME. The feeling of control and stability in this 2000 BMW-R-Series confidence inspiring. And it's light in weight in comparison to a full dresser which makes it much easier to handle and maneuver.
THIS BMW CRUISER HAS ONLY 9066 ORIGINAL MILES. BMW MOTORCYCLES ARE LEGENDARY FOR LOGGING LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MILES. THEY ARE VIRTUALLY "BULLETPROOF". THIS BEAUTIFUL MACHINE IS BARELY BROKEN IN.
WITH COLOR MATCHED LUGGAGE AND SEAT...AND WITH THE LUGGAGE BEING REMOVABLE JUST LIKE A SUITCASE...THIS BMW CRUISER IS AT HOME IN TOWN OR ON THE OPEN ROAD. AND NOTE THE REAR SEAT THAT FLIPS UP AND SERVES AS A DRIVER BACKREST WHEN THERE IS NOT A PASSENGER. NIFTY...HUH?
THERE ARE FASTER BIKES. THERE ARE BIGGER BIKES. THERE ARE LOUDER BIKES. BUT I TRULY DOUBT THERE ARE BETTER BIKES.
THERE ARE NUMEROUS SAFETY FEATURES. HOW ABOUT A FLASHING REAR BRAKE LIGHT THAT WILL DEFINITELY GET THE ATTENTION OF THE DRIVER BEHIND YOU. I THINK THIS SHOULD BE MANDATORY EQUIPMENT ON ALL STREET MOTORCYCLES. AND WHEN YOU USE YOUR BRAKES..YOU WILL LOVE THEM. THIS BIKE HAS ABS BRAKES....AN AMAZING ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM THAT WILL HELP KEEP YOU OUT OF TROUBLE.
AND LET'S TALK ABOUT FUEL EFFICIENCY. THIS BIKE IS FUEL INJECTED. NO CARBORATORS. THIS IS A MOTORCYCLE CARB FREE DIET....LOL. AND SHE SIPS FUEL RATHER THAN DRINKS. SHE WILL AVERAGE ABOUT 50 MPG AT HIGHWAY CRUISING SPEEDS.
