The components surrounding the engine, from the chassis to the drivetrain, have been redesigned from the ground up. The CL may have sprung from the R1200C, but it sports such accoutrements as heated seats from the more upscale K1200LT. To manage a wider speed range, the CL gets a new, lighter, six-speed transmission with re-angled gear teeth for quieter running. The Telelever suspension has also been reconfigured, with forks set farther apart to accommodate the 150/80-16, 3.5-inch-wide tire, and shares virtually no parts with the previous cruiser’s unit. A reinforced Monolever rear suspension system controls a 15-inch alloy wheel and a 170/80 rear tire. The latest edition of BMW’s fully integrated ABS comes standard, delivering controlled stopping power to both wheels.
