BMW R1100R (1995 - 2003)
The BMW R1100R is an incredible motorcycle that has, unfortunately, been hugely overlooked.
The 1080cc air and oil cooled, flat-twin engine is charming, offers plenty of torque and mid-range.
ABS came with all 1995 – 1999 R1100Rs. After that, it became an option. Therefore, some of the used bikes will have it, so it’s a good idea to ask.
The BMW R1100R can be ridden on an A2 license provided that you restrict the power by 41%. Although that’s a lot of restriction, it will mean that as soon as you get your full motorcycle license, you won’t have to get rid of your R1100R, as it will have plenty more to offer!
You will need a restrictor to ride the BMW R1100R on an A2 license. See the BMW R1100R specifications table for restriction info, and the restrictor kits section to see what restrictors are available for the BMW R1100R.
