2004 BMW R1200C MONTAUK This cruiser has been garage kept and it shows!!Bike is a real eye catcher and this model is a rare find.Tires (FandR) replaced in 2014 with original equipment brand.Battery replace 2017Oil changed 2018The 1170cc, air/oil-cooled, fuel-injected motor starts up on the first push of the starter button. Because its a horizontally opposed Twin there is a considerable side-to-side shaking motion inherent in the design. And when you crank the throttle in neutral, the engine dances to the right. To BMW fans its all part of the charm and character. The clutch requires only a light pull, and the lever, like the brake lever, is adjustable for smaller hands. The gearbox operates smoothly and each shift feels direct and positive. The wide-stance Telelever fork is borrowed from the portly R1200CL touring cruiser model, as is the fat 150mm front tire. With this model, the Boxer engine received an upgrade to two spark plugs per cylinder. BMW is famous for excellent brakes, and this Montauk is no exception. The brakes are outstanding and feature BMWs EVO/Integral ABS. Pull the front lever and it activates the dual 4-piston calipers that bite on 12.0-inch dual floating rotors in front, and also activates the floating two-piston caliper out back that grabs another 11.2-inch single fixed rotor out back. And its tuned for just the right bias. Pressing the rear brake pedal, however, does not activate the front brake. And the ABS will kick in if the pavement gets wet or gravely, so there is no chance of lockup. The Montauks unconventional suspension components are unlike any other cruisers suspension on the market. The front Telelever with 5.6 inches of travel soaks up bumps and potholes with ease, and along with the beefy 150/80-16 tire, help the Montauk to turn in easily and track solidly through turns. The rear Monolever has 3.9 inches of travel, is adjustable for preload, and it too handles its duties well. A few unexpected and welcomed amenities include heated handgrips, a height-adjustable low-beam headlight, and a conveniently located battery charger connection point. The BMW cruisers look unlike any other cruiser on the market, and there is no mistaking it for anything else on the market. For those riders who are searching for something different in a cruiser bike than is being offered by any other manufacturer, this BMW may be just the ticket. The motor gives you a unique pulse; the suspension offers a distinctive handling package, and the unconventional, iconoclastic styling obviously distinguishes itself from the crowd. The R1200C Montauk might even be the right combination for you.
