Thoughts on BMW R1150R

Recommended Posts

I rode a friends BMW R1150R this weekend and really liked it. It was completely different than the GSXR750 that I used to have but it had a lot of good points. I am getting older and with 3 kids I do not need to take the chances that I used to. It is very comfortable and torquey.

He wants to sell it. It is an 03' w/ 24K on it. It has hard-bags, new tires, a few different screens. I would say good shape and I know that he would definitely tell me about anything that was wrong with it. He is asking $5800. He said book is $6200.

Anybody have any experience with these??

What do you think about them??

The NADA High and Low Retail prices for the '03 R1150R are $6,090 and $4,630 respectively. The R1150R is a really nice bike, although the new R1200 models are smoother, more powerful, shift better, 'surge' less, and have a more troublefree driveline. 24K miles may sound like a lot but the boxer twins are just breaking in at around 15K miles. I sold my '00 R1150GS after 35K miles (and it was still in perfect condition) and replaced it with an '05 R1200GS.
