BMW f800 GT

Displacement: 798cc Torque: 63Nm /46.5 ft lbs. @5800 rpm
Weight: 213.2 (wet)
Seat Height: Standard: 800mm / 31.5 inches
Low Setting: N/A
Low Seat Option: N/A
Wheelbase: 1,514mm / 59.6 inches

BMW appears to have got the balance right with the F800GT. It has just the right blend of sport and tourer for a motorcycle of this size and type.
It also makes a sensible proposition for anyone considering taking up motorcycling for the first time and it even has appeal for the more experienced rider who wants a light, but robust sports tourer that will happily eat up the miles in a no nonsense sort of way.
And where this BMW really scores is you’ll have a lot of fun doing that and just getting out there and riding it.

BMW R1200 RT

Displacement: 1170cc Torque: 120Nm / 88.5ft lbs @6000rpm
Weight: 229kg / 504.9lbs

Low Setting: 820mm / 32.2 inches
Low Seat Option: 780-800mm /30.7 inches
Wheelbase: 1485mm / 58.4 inches
Options: ESA electronic suspension, heated grips & seats, electric windscreen, cruise control, luggage, topcase & tank bag.

“the BMW R 1200 RT has long been sport touring’s standard-bearer. Designed, built and refined in the shadow of the Alps, the RT name is synonymous with tractable power, intuitive handling and first-rate comfort and wind protection. Its trademark air/oil-cooled boxer twin with shaft drive represents 90 years of BMW design tradition, a setup that has proven to be reliable and popular.”

BMW R1200 RS

YEAR 2015-

Displacement: 1170cc Torque: 125Nm /92 ft lbs. @6500 rpm
Weight: 231kg (wet) 502 lbs
Seat Height: Standard: 820mm / 32.2 inches
Low Setting: 760mm
Low Seat Option: N/A
Wheelbase: 1,514mm / 59.6 inches
Options: ESA electronic suspension, shift assist pro, heated grips, luggage & top case.

“The beauty of this boxer is the feel of immediate torque. After thumbing the starter and feeling the left-to-right rattle that harmonizes into a continuous melody, the R1200RS’ engine presents hefty torque from the first crack of throttle to the maximum 92 ft/lbs at 6500 rpm.” Read the full review here:


Engine size: 1170
Cylinders: 2
hp/kW: 125/ 92
Vehicle weight (kg): 238
Seat height (mm): 850

The result has improved the already class leading GS in almost every aspect. The engine is a measurable step forward right through the rev range yet retains its boxer character. It looks cleaner and neater, is more comfortable and sophisticated and handles better too.

In my opinion, these two bikes are by far the most dynamic and full-featured touring motorcycles ever produced. I have always said, often to the surprise of many, that my dream shed of bikes would certainly include a Gold Wing among its numbers. That dream shed often changes, once upon a time there wasn’t a single BMW in it, but now the K 1600 GT joins its Bavarian brothers the R 1200 GS and K 1300 R in the list of machinery that’s managed to steal my heart since BMW has dramatically upped their game in the past few years.

The S1000XR is an exciting new offering from BMW. The S1000RR Superbike has helped transform the marque from its stodgy, pipes-and-slippers trope to a more robust, high-performance bike brand, and the S1000XR builds on this momentum.

    My wife wanted to go to Italy, so we agreed on this tour. I liked riding in the Alps much better than around Tuscany. My wife loves Italy so she was in heaven. The food was out of this world. Saw a lot of nice things which made my wife happy. At times I just wanted to get back to those Alpine roads for another go.

    Very nice holiday, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Tuscany & Cinque Terre villages are lovely, but they can get a little crowded. The food is amazing. the riding was good. Some of the roads in Italy needed some serious maintenance, keep your eyes on the road. Bring walking shoes, you have to park and then walk quite awhile to get to the towns.
