Ultimate MotorCycling editor Don Williams named the BMW R 1200 R to the magazine and website's 2015 10 Best Motorcycles list.
Commenting on BMW’s new roadster, Williams observed, “After years of sticking with an air-cooled motor and odd suspension, BMW has gone back to basics while forging ahead. Taking the 125 horsepower liquid-cooled motor from the GS and RT, and then putting it in a chassis with inverted forks. I greatly enjoyed the power and predictable handling of the R 1200 R, especially with the Dynamic ESA and Shift Assistant Pro. There are few motorcycles more comfortable for all-day rides, be they in the crowded city or open rural runs - just be sure to get the Premium Package.”
The R 1200 R came in at #8 on the list, preceded by the new Ducati Scrambler (#1), KTM 1290 Super Adventure (#3) and Indian Scout (#4). Read the full article here.
