The 2016 R 1200 RT-P
In 2015 BMW developed a completely new
version of the R 1200 RT-P. The new RT-P
gains the fabulous new boxer air / watercooled engine producing 125 bhp and 92 lb/ft
of torque. The easily accessible selfenergized multi-plate wet clutch has reduced
lever pull with a wide “grey” area. The new
clutch system can now be changed in about
an hour, accessible from the front of the
engine case, thereby minimizing periodic
maintenance costs. The new lowmaintenance engine utilizes a single spark
plug per cylinder, combined engine-gearbox
lubrication, keeping operational costs to a
minimum. New e-gas electronic throttle
control provides precise throttle
management, reduced throttle twist rotation
to 70 degrees with no wear or adjustment
needed due to electronic throttle actuator
The BMW emergency lighting system provides four times the forward intensity of the prior model, focused in the primary
zone where motorists are most likely to left turn / pull-out in your path (pattern shows most intense area). Enclosed takedown lights and alley lights provide exceptional illumination plus an alternating wig-wag function to maximize visibility.
Integration is further enhanced with the rear light module, which combines all of the lighting system components
previously mounted on the rear of the police motor together in an easily-accessible controller module.
 Rear and rear-side facing
emergency lights provide greater intensity
than the previous double-stacked units.
 New high-mount rear-facing
auxiliary brake & tail lights enhance
visibility for approaching vehicles.
 Side-facing auxiliary turn signals
add visibility when changing lanes while
passing vehicles.
 Fully-integrated rear ID lights in
blue or red keep license plate area
 Motion activated saddlebag lights
provide visibility in bags at night / low light

The 2016 R 1200 RT-P
The 2016 R 1200 RT-P provides the most
modern, integrated lighting system available on a
police motor. The auxiliary rear emergency light
unit provides high-intensity visibility in all
situations, plus provides additional benefit if the
radio box lid is opened during the violator stop.
The auxiliary rear emergency light unit is mounted
to the optimally grounded radio antenna mounting
bracket (standard equipment), which is suitable
for any radio frequency from 40 MHz to 800+
Numerous accessories are available for the RT-P
from a map light, flashlight / baton holders, to M4
combat assault rifle or shotgun mount. An
extensive assortment of mountings for common
equipment required on motors including moving
radar, radar / Lidar guns and video system
integration mounts are also available.
New Handlebar Switch Assemblies
 Emergency light & siren switch has
been relocated for optimal access. A touch of
the switch activates lighting and siren system.
 Emergency lights now offer two
program pattern switching modes.
 Siren has been programmed for quick
switch response for “chirp” activation as well as
wail, yelp, hyper-yelp and air horn.
 Radio speaker mute switch function
now standard.
Full-color TFT dashboard provides a wealth of information to rider via
the thumb-wheel control. Dashboard angle is adjustable to eliminate
glare for officers of any height.
Integrated radio head and map light mounting is standard equipment on
the new R 1200 RT-P, thereby facilitating quick yet secure installation
of the radio control head. Combined with the standard radio antenna
mounting at the rear, the RT-P is ready for any police radio installation
without purchasing extra mounts.
The mounting will also facilitate the tandem mounting of a police video
system display / control head while retaining easy access to the ignition

The 2016 R 1200 RT-P
The R 1200 RT-P sets the standard for electrical
power management while providing fast and
efficient connection of police equipment. The BCa
(Body Controller authority) controls all special
authority circuit outputs and charging of the
auxiliary battery. There is no need for fuses, the
BCa monitors and protects outputs, controlling
circuits for all police accessories:
Gun Lock (6A)
Radio (15A)
Auxiliary LED Emergency Lights
LED Flasher Connection (10A + 6A)
Helmet Headset Interface (2A)
Lighter Socket (6A)
Accessory I (2A)
Accessory II (2A)
Accessory III (2A)
Fairing Radio Speakers
Radar Connection (6A)
The radio box on the R 1200 RT-P features an electronic
release, eliminating the need for a key to open the box. The
Body Controller authority and auxiliary battery are located
under the radio box for optimal protection and interference
suppression (average police radio chassis illustrated in radio
box). The BCa controls all accessory outputs and limits the
time each output is powered after ignition-off. When each
output is switched off, no parasitic loads are possible. The
BCa also monitors battery condition and systematically shutsdown accessory outputs to ensure the auxiliary battery
cannot be flattened / damaged. At an average of $1.50 a
minute, installation labor for radios and accessories can be
greatly reduced which significantly lowers your overall police
motor preparation costs.
Saddlebag illumination is another feature for
the R 1200 RT-P. Two LEDs are precisely
focused to illuminate the inside of the police
saddlebag. Actuation is simple … wave your
hand by the light and a proximity sensor will
turn-on both saddlebag lights for 15 seconds,
then automatically turn them off! If you need
the light for a longer period, wave your hand
again and you get another 15 seconds of
illumination. A cool yet extremely practical
feature when loading / unloading at night, in
low light conditions, parking garages, etc.

Optional Value from BMW R 1200 RT-P Motors:
BMW provides the most comprehensive assortment of options specifically designed for BMW motors, from simple map
lights to electric locking assault rifle mounts. BMW designs these options to enable agencies to professionally mount the
specialized equipment that we know you need and use, enabling everything to work properly. Additionally, these specially
designed mounts greatly reduce the installation time over “universal” mounts (universal means it doesn’t fit anything
properly), making the final package more affordable. All options are warranted by BMW to fit and function properly! A
detailed listing of available options is in this information sheet.
Many recent entrants to the police motor arena have made claims of being much less expensive, but when the bidding is
over and the dust settles, those motors are usually similar in price or even more expensive than the BMW with far less
standard equipment and higher operating costs! Don’t be fooled by the newcomers!
New standard features on every R 1200 RT-P: (standard for stock units)
Heated seat and heated handlebar grips (new 5-level adjustment for heat settings)

How Important is Fuel
The fuel economy (or lack thereof)
is an increasingly important aspect
of the operational cost of police
motorcycles. What is illuminating is
the significant additional cost of
operation with specific motors.
Often, motor purchases are
decided with minimal differences in
price without consideration to the
effect of operational cost, yet these
costs can dwarf the variance
between competing bids. See at
right one more reason why BMW
Police Motors are the best longterm value for your agency.
* The R 1200 RT-P can be operated on
middle-grade 89 AKI fuel.
**All MPG data results from the LASD 2011
Vehicle Test Report, where fuel
consumption was monitored on fully
equipped police motorcycles, ridden on
specific routes to simulate typical police
riding style and real world situations,
including violator stops, etc.
Your actual mileage may vary from the results above.
BMW provides service maintenance training classes at our Ontario, CA BMW
Training Center free-of-charge to the agency.
This class is specifically tailored to agency technicians who wish to fully maintain the motor as well as perform
supplementary work such tire changes, clutch replacement, etc. BMW also offers training on the BMW ISPI diagnostic
tester system for agencies with larger fleets that can justify the acquisition of a diagnostic tester. The training enrollment
form can be found under the training tab on the BMW Police Motors website at .

Limited Warranty - BMW R 1200 RT-P
2016 Police Motorcycles
(Valid only in the U.S.A.)
BMW of North America, LLC (“BMW NA”) warrants to the first retail Public Authority (Purchaser) and each subsequent Purchaser of 2016 U.S.
specification R 1200 RT-P BMW Police motorcycles, imported by BMW NA, to be free of defects in materials or workmanship for a period of 36 months
or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first, commencing with the date the motorcycle is delivered to its first retail Purchaser, or, if the motorcycle is first
placed in service as a BMW Press motorcycle, BMW Employee Lease motorcycle, BMW Motorcycle demonstrator, BMW Display motorcycle, BMW
Fleet Motorcycle or BMW Motorcycle retailer demonstrator prior to sale at retail, on the date the motorcycle is first placed in such service.
To obtain service under this warranty, the motorcycle must be brought, upon discovery of the defect, to the workshop of any BMW Motorrad USA
authorized motorcycle retailer. This motorcycle dealer will, without charge for parts or labor, either repair or replace the defective part(s) using new or
authorized remanufactured parts. The decision whether to repair or replace said part(s) is solely the prerogative of BMW NA. Parts for which
replacements are made become the property of BMW NA.
BMW NA makes no other express warranty on this product except the warranty as to the emission control system. The duration of any implied
warranty of merchantability, is limited to the duration of the express warranty herein. BMW NA hereby excludes incidental and consequential
damages, including loss of time, inconvenience, or loss of use of the vehicle, for any breach of any express or implied warranty, including
any implied warranty of merchantability that may be applicable to this product. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied
warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you.
This warranty is not applicable to Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Motorcycles offered for sale under the BMW Certified Pre-Owned Motorcycle Program. A
separate Certified Pre-Owned protection Plan, described in applicable CPO literature, outlines the coverage provided to BMW CPO Motorcycles under
the CPO Protection Plan.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Any legal claim or action arising from
any express or implied warranty contained herein must be brought within 12 months of the date it arises.
Notwithstanding the above, the following items are warranted against defects in material and workmanship for the first 12 months:
Halogen headlight bulbs
LED bulbs as original equipment supplied by BMW (not Code 3, see below for Code 3 LED warning light warranty)
Paint, powder coat and chrome finishes
Notwithstanding the above, the following items are warranted against defects in material and workmanship for the first 24 months:
This warranty does not apply to the following, except as noted above:
a. Maintenance Services - This includes, but is not limited to, scheduled maintenance, such as oil changes, wheel balancing; mechanical adjustments
or repairs which become necessary through normal wear and tear such as throttle body synchronization, steering bearing adjustments; or periodic
maintenance such as input and Paralever drive shaft spline lubrications.
b. Service & Wear Items - This includes, but is not limited to, the replacement of brake pads, linings and rotor assemblies, clutch plates, rear drive
chain / belt and sprockets, spring strut dampers, steering head dampers, steering head, wheel and swing arm bearings and ball joints, incandescent
bulbs, fuses, control cables, exhaust pipes and mufflers for discoloration of finish and rubber items such as hand grips, heated hand grips, foot rests,
foot shift and control cable shields.
c. Batteries - Batteries that exhibit signs of neglect or overcharging.
d. Tires - Tires and tubes are warranted by their respective manufacturer for defects in materials and workmanship.
e. Code 3 Emergency Products - BMW NA has arranged with Code 3 Public Safety Equipment, Inc. (“Code 3”) to allow authorized BMW motorcycle
retailers to process valid Code 3 claims for warranty repair / replacement of Code 3 products; but only for Code 3 products supplied by BMW NA on new

g. Improper Fuel Usage - Only use fuels advertised to have adequate detergency and low alcohol (maximum 10% ethanol) content. Please refer to
your owner’s manual for important information on the fuel recommended for use in your vehicle. Use of fuels with insufficient detergent and/or excess
alcohol can cause drivability problems that necessitate cleaning intake valves and fuel injection valves, and, when applicable, adjusting the engine idle.
We suggest having this work performed by your authorized BMW dealer, perhaps while regular maintenance is performed. Your BMW dealer can also
recommend a gasoline additive that will provide sufficient detergency. While this recommended unscheduled maintenance is not required in order to
maintain the emissions warranty, cleaning of the intake valves or, when applicable, fuel injection valves, or adjustment of engine idle, necessitated by
use of inappropriate fuel, it is not covered by warranty because no defect in material or workmanship or component failure is involved.

accordance with the instructions in the Rider’s Manual and/or Service & Technical booklet. Proof must be provided either by a paid invoice copy or filling
in the appropriate boxes in the Service & Technical booklet.
i. Damage - This includes, but is not limited to, damage resulting from negligence, improper treatment, the installation and use of side cars, three wheel
conversions, trailer hitches, the towing of trailers of any description, accidents or improper accident damage repairs, corrosion from road salts, battery
acid, cleaning agents, environmental influences, or treatment contrary to the Rider’s Manual and/or Service and Technical booklet.
j. Non-BMW Parts - Damage to a component or assembly due to the installation of replacement parts with specifications that differ in any material
respect from Original BMW Parts.
k. Towing. Limited towing assistance is available through the BMW Motorcycle Roadside Assistance Plan.
