Can anyone give me any information on buying a R1200RT-PD? BMW's website doesn't have much info about them. Can a dealer order one for a civilian? Any ideas on price or lead time? I am not interested in a bike that has already been used by a police department.

Thanks.

Within the last few weeks I saw a dealer on the east coast selling their demo bike on E-Bay. That's bound to have a lot less miles then a surplus one. Dare I asked, have you asked your local dealer?

I don't have a local dealer. My closest dealer is 350 miles away and I am not really a big fan of theirs. That is why I asked here first. Thanks for the suggestion of looking on ebay.

Grand Rapids BMW has a 2008 and their ad say: Former Police Unit--Available to Police Departments and Fire Departments. Unit has all Amber Flashers & Siren, ABS, Stability Control, ABS, TPM, Front & Rear Protection Bars, Extra Battery, Radio Box...

So it looks like going through a dealer for one may be an issue... Probably depends how its equipped as in flashers and sirens....

Beware that the parts supply for police bikes might dry up sooner than for the civilian bikes. There aren't many Police departments requesting gear for their airheads.

just go to ebay and look up bmw. there are a couple of places that have old cop bikes. also check out bobs bmw in md. they have some info on site and say its no problem even getting new ones. they had a rtp and i saw one demo model in nh somewhere also on ebay.

It looks like Max BMW is selling one on e-bay right (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BMW-R-Series-R1200RT-P-2006-BMW-R1200RT-POLICE-BIKE-THE-REAL-DEAL-HERE_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZ72Q3a1171Q7c66Q3a 4Q7c65Q3a12Q7c39Q3a1Q7c240Q3a1318Q7c301Q3a0Q7c293Q 3a1Q7c294Q3a200QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQhashZit em390046559824QQitemZ390046559824QQptZUSQ5fmotorcy cles)now.
