I am interested in a comparison of these bikes. For starters is the Heritage engine simply the aircooled previous model of engine or something different?

You got it right, the heritage range use the old r1200 oil/air cooled not the newer lc engine.

It's actually the last version of the air/oil cooled boxer, the twin overhead cam engine.
Very good too, I have the same lump in my R1200R
