2014 BMW R1200RT – LONG-TERM TEST WRAP-UP Way, way more than merely the best sport-tourer.

I'm not looking to start an argument, but I'm pretty sure my next statement will light one off in, oh, about three milliseconds: The BMW R1200RT is the best all-around motorcycle on the road today. That's my opinion, anyway, and you're certainly not obliged to agree. But after living with Cycle...

A big announcement at EICMA that we have seen coming down the pipe since the latest generation of the BMW R1200GS broke cover, the 2014 BMW R1200RT is the next logical step of progression in BMW Motorrad's push to bring a "precision-cooled" water-cooled boxer-twin to its R-series of motorbike.... 

They say water is life. But when the BMW R1200RT was redesigned and reintroduced for 2014, it gained the radiators that had been first introduced on the GS a year before, and traditionalists wondered if the well-balanced spirit of Munich's Reise Tourer bike would survive this and the many other... 

After 90 years, BMW wants to send a message. Yes, the company's representatives and press releases said that the 2014 BMW R nineT is a present for the company, its customers and motorcyclists – which is to be expected. Doing anything for 90 years is admirable, and being, arguably, at the top of... 

It took us almost a year, but we finally pushed these two beasts to their breaking points—literally. For the first six months of this side-by-side long-term test, we cruised all over the western United States and Mexico with very few problems to report and only a few rider-induced mishaps that...

BMW's F800GS has been a tidier-sized adventure-touring rig since its introduction in 2008, offering most of what its iconic big brother, the R1200GS, has in a smaller, lighter and cheaper package. But for hardcore adventure riders, the 800GS fell a mite short in terms of its battle-readiness... 

Regular Cycle World readers know we love the BMW K1600GTL, the six-cylinder Bavarian that snagged Ten Best awards as our Best Touring Bike in 2011, 2012, and 2013. What's not to like? This bike, based on an aluminum frame with a magnesium front structure, is sophistication on wheels, a...
