Born in heaven, raised in hell.” That was one of the slogans BMW used when they introduced the R1200S, an evolution of the R1100S that fell much more on the ‘sport’ side of the sport-touring equation. It was the sportiest boxer twin BMW had ever built, and they emphasized the point by initially omitting factory luggage (though they soon added the option).

BMW took the basic 1,170cc engine from the popular R12GS, but they were able to bump up power to 122 horsepower thanks to some internal modifications and the highest redline seen to date on a BMW boxer – 8,800 rpm. Dry weight was 430 pounds, a 29 pound reduction from the R1100S.

In a review for Motorcycle-USA, Kevin Duke said this “is the first Boxer-powered Beemer that will wheelie strictly with the throttle, with no clutch work required. I was duly impressed when the front end came up in a controllable wheelstand while exiting a tight first-gear corner, and I was able to hold it with the bars crossed up while I shifted to second – not typical BMW.

An unofficial source states that just 432 R1200S’ were sold in the US in 2006-2007. 105 of them were offered in Shine Yellow.

For riders who wanted to take it to the next level, BMW offered a Sport variant which featured Ohlins shocks front and rear and a 6″ wide rear wheel.

This example is VIN: WB10396097ZP30270. The seller is the third owner, he acquired it four month ago from a private party in upstate Massachusetts.

During his ownership, the seller has covered 400 miles. The odometer shows 7,117 miles.

Modifications:
Factory optional Akrapovic exhaust. The original exhaust is included.

Factory optional cylinder head covers.

MRA tinted windshield.

TechSpec tank grips.

The sale includes the pictured rear stand and OEM windscreen.

The sale includes two extra sets of bodywork: one in yellow and one in silver.


The passenger pegs and luggage racks have been removed but are included. Luggage cases are not included.

Maintenance:
It was very recently serviced. An oil change was completed by the previous owner. It was serviced by MAX BMW in Northampton, New Hampshire on 7/22/21. Work performed included: Factory Recall-rear wheel flange and also fuel pump replacement. The rear drive oil was changed as well as the transmission oil also changed. The driveshaft splines were cleaned and lubricated as well.” The seller states that there are no known mechanical issues. “It’s ready for 100k more miles.”

Cosmetic Blemishes:
It has a small blemish (pictured) on the clutch side fairing near the roundel. Touch up paint in both the yellow and silver are included.”
