OE reduced power output K1200GT

I am reading my 2006 BMW K1200GT Owners Manual and found a note that OE means "Optional extra -Your motorcycle was assembled complete with all the BMW optional extras you ordered." how do I know what OEs I have on my bike? I am mainly interested to know if my bike was de-tuned to "OE Reduced power output, 79 kW at 8500 rpm " instead of nominal output of 112kW at 9500 rpm? I have pretty much all of the other "Optional Extras" on my bike, e.g. onboard computer, cruise control, ESA, heated grips, heated seats, anti theft alarm and xenon lights. How do I figure out if the engine was in fact de-tuned to reduced power?

I have never heard of the OE Reduced power output until now. This is the first mention of it that I have seen, ever. I have been active on these forums for nine years.

I bought my 2007 K1200GT new in the USA in 2007. It The TPM (tire pressure monitor) option had just been added for delivery in early 2007. It was not available in the early 2007 models that were delivered in Fall 2006.

Perhaps it is a European model only feature, but I still doubt that it exists. Who would want to buy a model with reduced power? The dealers would hate it only slightly less than the buyers would hate it.

See the attached file. Go to page 8. "OE Reduced power output" is not there.

I am unable to attach the owner's manual but it is on a page 132 and it is US model. I previously had 2006 K1200S and it also had that note in the manual. It could be by rev limiter but the manual also states the torque reduction from 130Nm to 111 Nm.

below is copied from that page:


Technical data:
Effective displacement 1157 cm3
Cylinder bore 79 mm
Piston stroke 59 mm
Compression ratio 13 : 1
Nominal output 112 kW, At engine rpm: 9500 min-1
With OE Reduced power output, 79 kW: 79 kW, At engine rpm: 8500 min-1
Max. torque 130 Nm, At engine rpm: 7750 min-1
With OE Reduced power output, 79 kW: 111 Nm, At engine rpm: 5000 min-1
Maximum permissible engine speed 10000 min-1
Idle speed 1050±50 min-1

You're right. I found it in my 2007 Rider's Manual in the Technical Data section on page 141.

I had never heard of it before, and I swear I have read the manual several times over the years. Now I wonder the same thing - how do you know which one you have? (And who would buy the lower torque/power model?)

Great website, but it is not 100% correct. It missed the TPM option that is included on my 2007 K1200GT.

The reduced power option only applies to certain European countries. No US bikes have this restriction, we get full power.
