I had a RR and I thought it was a superb bike. Mine is the non ABS model so normal brakes which are great and low maintenance. It’s just that it does everything in a dull-but-competent German kind of way, so its positive attributes tend to go unnoticed. I am short but once on the move have complete confidence in the bike. Pretty much all maintenance can be performed by an owner with basic mechanic skills. I would still have it if it weren’t for this disease that I have every years I get the itch for a new bike. It can still cope with pillion and luggage though.

What do you think?
The servo assist ABS brakes are the best of any bike I have ever ridden. Personally, I love them. Bleeding the brake system is more involved than normal, and the ABS unit requires fresh fluid at two year intervals. Like others have said, ride it and see what you think. Some folks love the boxers, some hate ’em. I think I’ll hang onto mine for another 50, miles before I make a final decision on keeping it.
BMW R1150R (2001-2006) Review
The BMW RR is comfortable for shorter journeys, but without a screen available as an official aftermarket item speeds over 85mph are a chore. I think 48mpg is more appropriate for an engine of this displacement and in this state of tune.
If you just want a hooligan-ish bike though, it might be for you. I agree with the guys as well. May 24, Oddometer: Fit and finish are superb.

If I can get ahold of the guy I would buy it back. At nearly lbs fully fueled, you feel r11550r weight when pushing it hard r11500r a twisty road. Avoid anything without a full dealer service history as this hammers re-sale worth.
Fun to ride and practical. Alot of the irritating aspects of the fixed. Rr1150r doesn’t corrode, unlike Ducatisit doesn’t give up the ghost at a whiff of moisture, unlike Ducatis it’s good for touring, and I can scratch on it because it actually lasts longer than 50 miles before breaking down, unlike Ducatis!
Can ride for hours without a break. Anyway, I kinda know where my old R is. BMW RR long term test: Mine is the non ABS model so normal brakes which are great and low maintenance. Pillion is way happy too and this from a girl who had to perch on the pillion of a ZX-7R. I’ve never used it on a track, I doubt it would be well suited to that.
I have logged miles in 3 months of ownership after decades on Hondas mostly VFR ; it has been a joy to ride and easy to work on. This bike grows on you!
No burst at the top end like a 4 cylinder bike, but a good, tractable, linear powerband. Just a floppy bag.
