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

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....

We couldn't resist. As soon as we realized these two models were both coming to market in 2014, we sent a flurry of emails to each company asking if we could arrange long-term loans. Then photographer Jeff Allen piped in: "Why don't we do a long-term, two-by-two comparison and let these bikes go... 

When Stephan Schaller, President of BMW Motorrad, took the stage at the 2013 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy, he described the new 2014 R1200RT as a vehicle for "relaxed but dynamic riding on long-distance holidays." With all due respect to Herr Schaller, he just as easily could have been... 

The same BMW R1200RT we road tested this past April—a fully loaded model equipped with the Premium Package and options such as a lighted top case with an LED brake light ($1,796)—has joined our long-term test fleet. We're stoked to learn more about the new techno-packed RT, which is based on the...
