Difference between models

Post by Alcfire »

Hi all, looking to buy myself an RT and was wondering, what is the difference between the models LE, SE and MU. I am looking at about a 2008 to 2010 is about 5 to 7 year old model.

Go to Jeff Dean's website. More information about RT's than you can imagine.

The R1200RT was introduced in 2005, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_R1200RT.

In 2010, there was a Model Update (MU),the new model has the TC Engine & some minor styling changes.

Having had a 2007 SE (same as 2008),the SE would have a higher spec. than a Standard Model e.g., Heated Grips & Seats, ESA was an optional extra at the time.

Like most things, later model 2010 SE's would have ESA as standard & cruise control etc.

Limited Edition (LE) Models are usually introduced at the end of a models runs, the 2009 model would probably have come with a colour coded top case.

I owned a 2009 LE for a couple of years.  Except for an audio unit it came with everything including a Navy IV. The black paint was very high quality.
