2004 BMW R1150R - 19K miles

Has anyone owned this year R1150R, any issues? What would one of these used with factory bags and a GIVI topcase sell for? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I had one as well as a RS, RT and an S All 2004s. Only issue I had with any were servo related on the RS.


Only issues would be the same as other 1150 types, Servo Brakes if on it, would be my biggest concern. Pretty solid bike overall. Starter motors could be stronger. Some folks had issues with shaft seals.

I would take another one in a heartbeat.

I would say anywhere from $4,000 to $6,000 depending on mileage, shape and equipment.

ABS? Heated Grips? Miles? Windshield? Overall Condition? Tires?

Fuel tank plastic quick disconnects. Replace with metal ones for sure.

Thanks for the input. It has a GIVI topcase and shield. Not sure about the ABS or grips, I'm hoping no ABS. Going to take a look today. Asking price: 5500 OBO.

Looks like a non-ABS bike with heated grips, bottom dollar price is 4700. Seems like a decent deal even with 19K miles?

I recently bought a virtually identical bike ('04 non ABS with hot grips, sporty screen, non factory rack and top case) for a little less than your 4700, but mine had 50k and a few scratches. If yours is very good cosmetically, and you can test ride for how well it fits you (not the best bike for long legged people) and the clutch seems fine I'd snap it up for 4700. Hope this helps.
