I'm shopping for a used R1200R; this will be my first BMW...are there any years of the recent models that differ significantly from the rest? Any major pitfalls to avoid? I'm really sold on an R1200R but want to know more...
Although I don't know of any problems with pre 2011 the bike changed considerably for that year model. I'll recommend to get a 2011+
And if you change your mind on the used one, check the new magnesium beige, it's super cool.
