Released in 2005, the design of this model was completely different from the BMW R1150RT which is replaced

The servo powered ABS brakes on the 2005 and 2006 models were semi integrated so the rear brake pedal only applies the rear brake while the front brake lever applies both brakes. in 2007 model year, servo assist was removed from the partially integrated brakes and new, more advanced and lighter ABS system was produced by Continental Teves.

A tire pressure monitor (TPM) was introduced as an option. In 2006 models the original two-tone horns were replaced by a single-tone horn. 

Optional extras included cruise control, heated grips, heated seats for both the rider and passenger, and a CD/Radio audio system.
