The Appeal

If you like to do any kind of motorcycle touring or long distance riding, you’ll know the value of having a quality tourer in your garage. In recent years, BMW have made some of the very best, including this high specification third generation R1200RT

An ex-Police bike, this has been very well specced and, as you’d expect, extremely well maintained. Comfortable, capable and powerful, there are few tourers that can compete with this smart BMW’s range of abilities.

The History and Paperwork

  • One registered owner from new (Norfolk Police force)

  • Stored in a heated garage
  • Indicated 46,674 miles

The Mechanics

  • Part water-cooled 1,170cc boxer engine offering a manufacturer claimed 125hp
  • Six-speed sequential transmission
  • Electrically adjustable suspension
  • Brembo performance brakes – twin disc front and single disc rear
  • Single-side swing arm
  • We’re assured the bike starts on the button, idles smoothly and rides very well
  • The vendor tells us there are no leaks, no smoke under load and no unusual noises or vibrations when riding


If you’re after a highly-specified, slightly left-field choice for a commuter or touring bike, this handsome and well maintained R1200RT simply has to be considered. With all you could need from a bike in terms of creature comforts, as well as that powerful boxer engine, it’s a truly superb all-rounder.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
