BMW Throws Down the Naked Bike Gauntlet
BMW has just leap frogged the Yamaha FZ1 and Aprilia Tuono in the race for naked bike supremecy. The new K1200R has radical love it or hate it styling, top of the line components, and push button adjustable electronic suspension. Ohh yeah, did I mention the 156hp engine with 93.6lb-ft of torque. At just a touch under $15 large it is not cheap, but so far it looks like you'll get your moneys worth. I'll be test riding one soon with an eye toward trading up next year. More to follow.
