I have owned BMW RT's for over 20 years. I am on my third one a 2020. These bikes are exceptional tourers, providing protection from the elements as well as in minor "downs". The electric adjustable windscreen (on the fly) along with heated grips and heated seat, can extend riding seasons to year round. The boxer twin cylinder engine (horizontally opposed) provides tremendous torque in addition to the 110 (plus) HP. So this machine provides miles and hours of grins while chewing up twisties giving conventional sport bikes a run for the money. I consistently put about 100,000 miles on each one every ten years combining 7,000 mile annual trips with 3,000 annual miles of local twisty riding and have never been let down. Service intervals have been improved by BMW over the generations and the common 6,000 mile service can easily be done by the owner (with some minor wrenching experience). Whether riding two up or solo this bike provides year round comfort, and the panniers and storage components provide excellent ease of traveling and waterproof secure containment. Selectable (on the fly) riding modes can adjust ride-ability from comfort on highways to normal for street riding to sport for the twisties. I can't say enough good stuff about these bikes.

1200cc of torque to the street, Smooth turns, sold response - Super Power response ZZR1200 arrived with a mildly bewildering split personality: part 145-horsepower cruise missile, part comfy long-haul sport-tourist. Was it a kinder, gentler ZX-12R or a slimmed-down Concours with anger-management issues? Both, actually, which is hardly a bad thing if you slow down long enough to think about it. After that, this one runs as fast as physics and the local constabulary will allow. Kawasaki figured a stronger, more comfortable version of the beloved ZX-11 would bury entrenched 'Bahnstormers like the Ducati ST4S and Triumph Sprint ST under an onslaught of sweet handling and Japanese horsepower. Especially when it cost about $5000 less. Adding 3mm more bore and a 1.6mm longer stroke bumped displacement to 1164cc. And those horses arrive in methodical fashion from idle to 6000 rpm, followed by an eyeball-flattening stampede from 8000 to the 145.2-bhp peak at 9750. That's stronger than Honda's CBR1100XX or an equivalent Suzuki GSX-R1000. Those ponies live in a stout twin-spar aluminum chassis, complete with a steel subframe designed to carry a passenger and the optional Givi hard luggage. Roomy, upright ergos are more humane than a ZX-11's, and the 609-lb. 1200 still covered the quarter-mile in 10.12 seconds at 136.9 mph. Land Rocket

I own and have owned several bikes over the years. The Tiger 800Xcs is impressive in that it does it all. On the street or highway commute, coastal highway, or off road camping it has been a blast. Triumphs legendary triple cylinder engine performs no matter what you do with it. Even two up it’s got plenty of goose to get you going. It does well touring the highways and dives into the corners with ease, responsive throttle and breaking promotes confidence and thrill. Fully equipped - fog lights, heated grips, cruise control, off road engine guard,/package, fender extender, two power ports, 3 aluminum (Triumph) bags/trunk and more will cost a little more but you have all the trimmings for a great all around motorcycle. Off road the bike has multiple settings to release traction control, abs and set it up old school if you like. It’s the only thing I have issue with is that when you shut off the motor it defaults back to full traction control and abs. Otherwise - love the choices. Hard steering and peg riding comes intuitive for experienced riders. That being said, the traction control is a nice feature that helps avoid rear end spin out when off the line or in wet corners. Ask me how I know!!! Guarantee - you will return from a test ride thoroughly pleased. Selling one in Washington check it out on Cycle Trader.

Love this bike because it's a cruise missle on 2 wheels. Comfortable, quick, and pretty good on the gas. 150hp at the engine is more than enough, even for a short, gravity challenged person.

Love this bike because it's a cruise missle on 2 wheels. Comfortable, quick, and pretty good on the gas. 150hp at the engine is more than enough, even for a short, gravity challenged person. Took this bike in the mountain twisties, highways, and around the Great Lakes. With the cruise control, ABS, heated grips and seat made it a easy choice for my everyday rider - until the snow starts flying. But alas, I'm getting older and this bike is heavy. Moving it around is a little bit of a challenge, but manageable. I think the K-bikes were underrated for what they could do. The in-line 4 cyl really spooled up quick and the next thing you know, you're doing 90 in 3rd gear on a 6 speed transmission. The ride was smooth a butt'ah. Shifting was a little clunky, but if you preload your shift it went thru the gears fine. It was a little pain to do maintenance because of all the tupperware, but that's the same with all these bigger sport-touring and touring bikes (exceptions are the big V twins).

This is the best bike I have ever operated. It is beautiful, reliable, powerful, fast, easy to handle and superbly oriented toward long distance riding. It simply requires scheduled maintenance and it will last forever. If I were younger there's no way I'd be selling it. I have owned several of these motorcycles and this is the newest one I have owned. There are other motorcycles that compete in this class but they are either more expensive, not as well engineered or designed, more expensive to acquire and maintain, or some combination of these things.
