CRUISE AS YOU ARE
You don't have to dream of California. This laid-back cruiser brings this unique nonchalance right to your doorstep. Its low seat height invites you to hop on immediately. As a thoroughly relaxed road surfer, you might want to give your ears some fitting music to listen to. And then: roadtrippin' towards an endless summer. Alternatively, you may simply want to listen to the sound of the boxer engine and let its drive system roll you through metropolises or rock around winding country roads. Enjoy this unique #Soulfuel feeling – life is easy on the R 12.
Laid back instead of fast foward
The R 12 epitomises a casual lifestyle. Dress code: smart casual. Style: classic. Iconic design features, like the round instrument, make it unmistakeable. The memorable design is primarily defined by the tank, seat, airbox cover and the front and rear mudguards.
Blackstorm metallic: Paint it Blackstorm metallic. The generous use of black emphasises the cool cruiser silhouette.
Aventurin red metallic: Vintage emphasised: the Aventurin red metallic paintwork on the front and rear-wheel covers and on the tank gives the R 12 an even more classic look.
Option 719 Thorium: Golden stitching on the seat, golden handlebars, Avus silver metallic colour and milled parts galore – with this equipment, it's love at first sight.
What you see is what you feel
Just look at it standing there; like a promise. Every journey on it will feel like this: simple, beautiful, relaxed. The classic cruiser flyline, which slopes down towards the rear, is formed by the solo seat in conjunction with the large rear-wheel cover. The teardrop-shaped steel tank, modelled on the former toaster tanks, blends in harmoniously. The rear section looks compact and coordinated thanks to the function-integrated indicator lamps with integrated rear light. 19" front wheel and 16" rear wheel round off the flat, laid-back appearance.

Rock’n’roll on the road
With the legendary drive and the ROLL and ROCK riding modes, you can switch from seriously laid-back to dynamic whenever you feel like it. This boxer engine optimised for the custom cruiser delivers a rich torque and fine acceleration on the road at low revs. The ROLL riding mode is optimised for a balanced cruiser feeling. The ROCK riding mode makes you want to chase bends dynamically with optimum stability. As a special highlight, the R 12 moves a little rockier when idling.
