Spring 1993 marked the beginning of a new era in the then 70 years of BMW motorcycle history. Introducing the R 1100 RS, BMW introduced the first model in the all-new Boxer generation with a two-cylinder four-valve engine and the BMW Telelever, an innovative, newly developed front-wheel guidance system. In a production run of 8 years, the sports tourer came off the production line more than 26,000 times. So while the R 1100 RS remained far behind the R 1100 GS or R 1100 RT in terms of production volume, it was the connoisseur's choice even after the introduction of its more sporting and dynamic "brother", the R 1100 S. This "senior" model in BMW's current motorcycle range is being replaced by the new R 1150 RS. Like the R 1150 GS, the R 1150 R and the R 1150 RT, the R 1150 RS now also comes with a larger and more powerful engine complete with a fully controlled catalytic converter and six-speed transmission. Reflecting the increase in power and performance, the brake system has also been upgraded, with BMW's new EVO brake on the front wheel and, as an option, with BMW's new Integral ABS, in this case the partly integrated version more appropriate for this sports-oriented machine. Other new features are the wheels and a larger windshield. All this makes the new R 1150 RS even more dynamic and agile, more comfortable and safer - simply the ideal sports tourer.
