The new BMW K 1200 R Sport forms the bridge between the "stripped down" K 1200 R and the fully-clothed K 1200 S. Barely launched, a complete accessory range is now available from AC Schnitzer that further reinforces the sporting nature of the "Sport". Particularly striking are the superlight AC S 1 forged rims, which with their low weight of under 8 kg ensure even better performance and handling.

The uncompromising dynamics are further enhanced by the EC-approved AC Schnitzer silencer. Available in polished aluminium, titanium and now in black stainless steel, this gives the K 1200 R Sport a deep throaty note and exclusive sporting finish. The range also includes complete high performance systems for use on the track.
The AC Schnitzer team has added powerful refinements to the existing design in the form of the engine spoiler that improves aerodynamics and completes the sporting look. A rear conversion is available to match, which also contains a pillion cover.

Comfort and sports performance - two incompatible opposites. With increasing power, ergonomics become ever more important. Control and mastery are decisive factors for safety and riding pleasure without stress. So for the latest BMW too, AC Schnitzer has developed a Superbike handlebar conversion. Black, with tapered handlebar, it suits the machine perfectly and helps the driver enjoy even more riding pleasure.

Good visibility is vital for protection. With its mirror extensions, AC Schnitzer ensures good rearward visibility. In particular large riders, or wearers of padded textile jackets and rain suits, will appreciate the benefit of the TÜV-tested adapter which is now available not only for the K 1200 R Sport but also for all other BMW motorcycles.

Protection in the event of a fall is provided by the crash pads available in two designs. While the basic crash pads are made of anodized aluminium, the alternative made from nylon and aluminium is fitted with an interchangeable protector.
