BMW Montauk features BMWs two spark ignition system, an
advancement that improves exhaust emissions, fuel consumption
and response, setting a new benchmark for cruiser performance.
Stylistically, the Montauk retains the clean, elegant lines
of the classic R 1200 C but with a few extras to give it a presence
all its own. Complementing the purity of the open design, the
Montauk features a subtle windshield, extending riding comfort
on long stretches of road.
Like its touring cousin the R 1200 CL, the Montauk takes a broader
stance with a widened BMW Telelever suspension up front and
vertically arranged dual headlights. The new Montauk looks equally
imposing from the side. A higher, narrower passenger seat and
redesigned side cover give the Montauk a powerful profile.
