The new R 1200 RT-P features a completely new LED emergency lightingconcept developed by BMW and Code 3 PSE. The new system combinesall currently desired emergency lighting into optimally focused compactLED light modules. These modules accommodate an additional 45 degreefront LED module that blankets the front quadrants in emergency light.
The rear light module combines rear and side facing LED emergency lights, together with rear-facing brake/tail LED and side turn signal LED Light Additional rear facing LED emergency lights can be installed and powered in conjunction with the rear facing lights, or controlled by photo-eye to disable the lights during the dark to reduce glare at night / low light
The programmable flasher can provide 12 flash patterns, with wiring splitting the motor between left and right side for alternating flash patterns. Light sequencing begins with rear, programmable rear and front side lights, as well as front and 45 degree front lights. A rear cancel switch allows riders to disable the rear lights while retaining the side and front lights –
usually used for protective service details. The programmable flasher also provides for a primary and secondary flash pattern, so during code 3 operation, the emergency lights will display the primary pattern until the siren is activated, at which time the flasher changes to the alternative pattern for 7 seconds after each siren tone change. This feature known as InterClear provides a visual and audible alert to those nearby.
Note: the lights pictured are prototype units that are not fully optimized for visual or structural quality. Production units will provide precise accurate light location.
New BMW Police Saddlebags
BMW heard the requests of motor officers and developed a completely new saddlebag for police motors. The new 23 liter saddlebags are easily removable for service maintenance or cleaning (removes with two bolts). The lid is hinged at the front with an easy-to-operate rear latch (while seated on the motor) that is glovefriendly and can be locked with the ignition key.
Optional saddlebag liners will also be available along with an optional luggage net in
the lid for small item / rain gear storage. Replaceable color painted side panels can be repaired / replaced without having to replace the entire saddlebag, reducing the cost of accident damage repairs.
Special front protection bars made of stainless steel have integrated BMW / Code 3 siren speaker mounting, providing maximum protection during accidents. Integrated speaker mounting reduces weight, yielding a clean professional appearance.
The new highly accurate easy-to-read police speedometer displays has a large numerical
display in the center of the information display, and through a locking button on the
right handlebar, can display that “locked” speed (33 mls/h), retaining that reading until
the next time a speed is locked in the display.
BMW provides mountings / adaptations for commonly requested components such as moving
radar, video systems, map lights, notepad holders, electrical outlets, etc. Indicators lights integrated into the back of the right hand front emergency light module place information within the rider’s field ofvision.
New electrically-adjustable windshield has been optimized to provide a wider range of coverage & protection for all riders, with particular attention paid to coverage with open-face helmet
Maintenance has never been easier. Basic engine maintenance intervals are 6,000 miles for oil service and adjustments, gearbox oil changes are at 24,000 mile, rear drive and fork oil are lifetime. Fuel filter is also now lifetime, again reducing maintenance even further.
Batteries are BMW gel maintenance-free 19 Ah batteries that recover well from deep-cycle
discharges. Service has been improved by a new protection bar system that provides full access to the front engine cover, as well as easier seat and fuel tank removal, easier access to batteries as well as protection bar removal.
The R 1200 RT-P is now covered by a 39 months, 60,000 mile limited warranty.
