Whether cutting through mountain gaps or rolling along open plains, the new
BMW Montauk was built for long rides through big sky country. Packed full of torque
(72 lb/ft), its got ample energy to ascend winding mountain roads and an updated
5-speed gearbox to keep the miles rolling by smoothly.
The new Montauk also features BMW’s two spark ignition system, an advancement that improves exhaust emissions, fuel consumption and response, setting a new benchmark for cruiser performance.
Stylistically, the Montauk retains the clean, elegant lines of the classic
R 1200 C but with a few extras to give it a presence all its own. Complementing the purity of the open design, the Montauk features a subtle windshield, extending riding comfort on long stretches of road.
Like its touring cousin the R 1200 CL, the Montauk takes a broader stance with a widened BMW Telelever suspension up front and vertically arranged dual headlights. The new Montauk looks equally imposing from the side. A higher, narrower passenger seat and redesigned side cover give the Montauk a powerful profile.
