Most of the "updated" BMW models for 2021 have already been refined in recent years, or even the first to appear in the lineup. So the Bavarians made a bit of a marathon, slightly changed the stock configuration, added options and removed something. Yes, yes, you heard right: removed.
The 2021 BMW R 1250 RS gets a new Austin Yellow Metallic color scheme with a matte black frame, while the Option 719 Stardust, previously offered in some markets, is leaving the scene. Due to new European ABS laws, the option to disable this system has been removed. The sports-touring model will also receive a new exhaust.
Also, the RS will be available professional package drive mode (Driving Modes Pro), which includes the control and engine braking mode dashboard Core Screen Sport. Several packages will be available where milled parts combine anodized black finish with silver - Option 719 Shadow and Shadow II, Option 719 Storm and Storm II: engine covers, valve covers, handlebar levers, footrests and foot levers, and more.
The BMW R 1250 R 2021 will receive a new Mineral Gray Metallic scheme to replace the Pollux Metallic Mat, Style Exclusive and Option 719 Stardust. The red-white-blue circuit called Style HP has been renamed Style Sport. R will also get a new muffler instead of "HP"
As on the GS, the Driving Modes Pro option on the BMW R 1250 R now features engine braking control and a Core Screen Sport dashboard mode. Option 719 trim packages with milled elements will also be available. The optional HP battery is now called the M power block.
The 2021 BMW K 1600 range, which includes GT, GTL, B and Grand America, will receive stock reversing, daytime running lights, adaptive cornering lights and a tire pressure monitoring system. The previously available security options package, which included these options, is accordingly removed.
