2005 BMW R1150 R Rockster

BMW R1150 R Rockster

The BMW R1150 R Rockster - innovative design and engineering

The Rockster, which retails at 7,510 on-the-road, is a sportier version of the successful R1150 R model, from where it derives its engine, gearbox, frame, swing arm and electrics. The striking headlights are taken from the R1150 GS, while some of the components such as the Telelever sliding tubes, 5.5 inch rear wheel rim and the front mudguard come from the R1100 S. Riding dynamics are uprated for greater agility.

Although the Rockster is primarily about innovative design and forward thinking - it incorporates all the best components and elements of the current boxer range - it is a machine that shows a new face and character. Like the rest of BMW's boxer range, the R1150 R Rockster features a dual ignition system that improves the uniformity of combustion throughout the engine's operating range, while reducing fuel consumption and emission levels.

Striking twin-tone paintwork in matt black and a choice of Citrus Green Metallic and Orange Metallic colour schemes gives the Rockster a truly unique identity that will appeal to all fans of naked roadsters, who want a motorcycle that performs as good as it looks.
