In the R 1200 ST, the ST could well stand for Sport and in the R 1200 RT, the RT could mean Touring - both machines however are fully at home in both situations. The AC Schnitzer engineers have given the ST more sound, a modified seating position and exclusive covers for the link journals with the AC Schnitzer Logo. The RT enjoys the sound of the AC Schnitzer Revolution silencer. The V-Performance rims in size 5.5 x 17“ and 3.5 x 17“ have been adapted for both.

Both the R 1200 ST and the R 1200 RT in AC Schnitzer guise are fitted with Revolution silencers with a removable DB killer. The interplay of the boxer engine with the Revolution silencer gives a deeper note. Two variants are available for the R 1200 ST: one following the standard shape for use with luggage, and a raised version for the more sporting driver. The systems can be fitted with a manifold without catalyst.

AC Schnitzer Superbike steering conversion
AC Schnitzer cover caps 
In the development of the Superbike steering conversion, the line between sports and touring use has been totally relocated. A complete new fork bridge of high strength aluminium is used, with a link strut specially designed for the R 1200 S. This relieves the load on the wrists, lower arms and back on longer journeys, and ensures complete machine control at faster speeds. A similar conversion is also available for the K 1200 R and K 1200 S models.
