Motorcycle Seat Heights - BMW

By Walter Kern

The following is a listing of BMW motorcycle seat heights from the lowest to the highest. All motorcycle seat heights are given in inches, even though BMW uses millimeters (which I converted to inches). Associated with each motorcycle seat height is the Year, Make, and Model of the associated motorcycle. The 2012 model year is used for BMW models taken from the BMW website as of November 24, 2012. The 2014 model year is used for BMW models taken from the BMW website as of December 6, 2013. BMW often does not list model years on their website. No attempt was made to provide 2015 data but the seat heights and models should be equivalent to 2014 data.

The 2012/2014 models have a confusing set of seat heights since some models have only one seat height while others have two seat heights, and still others have a variable range of seat heights and some have combinations of these.

BMW offers a Seat Height Configurator on its website. You enter basic body dimensions and BMW picks those BMW models that should fit you. Give it a try.

These motorcycle seat height data should be beneficial to new riders as well as other more experienced riders who are looking for machines that will fit them and make them safer on their motorcycles.
