I have just put a deposit on a 21 model 1250 RS Demo bike which is the basic model but fitted with the dynamic pack...I am just wondering if anyone has any experience with the standard rear suspension on these bikes...I rode the bike about 3 weeks ago but just did the deal today & after looking at so many other 2nd hand fully spected models since then, i cant remember if the pre load is hand adjustable or c - spanner and would just like to any opinions/info regarding how good it is solo or 2 up when pushed in the twisties...Also, any info on the dynamic pack other than the QS would be helpfull...I was only interested in how the bike handled on the test ride, which was only a short distance, so any info much appreciated...

Rear preload must be with a knob. Dynamic package:

“The Dynamic Package hones the sporty qualities of the machine while at the same time offering safety benefits. The equipment features include Pro riding modes with ABS Pro, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) and Hill Start Control (HSC), shift assistant Pro as well as LED daytime riding light and LED indicators.” This is from a NZ BMW web site.

It is what DTC, DBC, ABS PRO all mean that confuses me...I have done some research on the forum so not competely uneducated, just taking the lazy approach by posting here, lol...

DTC, DBC, and ABS Pro all relate to traction, and the MMU (6d motion sensor) allowing lean, tilt, and force sensitive control feedback.

I didn't...On the test ride i realised it was not the bike for me for numerous reasons, then i test rode a much earlier 2015 1200R & loved it, but unfortunately it had not been looked after as much as i would have liked, so, I will be concentrating on finding a good 1200 or 1250 R now & the RS is off the list....As far as demo bikes are concerned, unless you are going to buy all your bikes brand new, you would generally not know if a 2nd hand bike had been a demo at sometime anyway ! BMW technology does not allow modern demo bikes to be revved to maximum throttle during the run in procedure so BMW demos are a pretty safe bet i think...

glad to hear, although you have some valid points, there's not only the motor involved in the demo rides, just saying.

I have not heard that about demo bikes.
I know the S1000RR is rev limited until its had the 600 mile service.

Not many of us are going to keep bikes long enough to worry about that anyway.

Too many people baby a new engine without regard to what the manual actually says, with the result that the true break-in - terrible expression - occurs much later than it should, with the result that the engine may never develop its full power potential and consumes oil due to poor ring sealing.

In reality, modern engines require very little breaking in. That doesn't mean balls to the wall from mile one.
