By Jason Fogelson My friend Bob rides BMWs. In the constantly evolving puzzle that is his garage, there’s always at least one BMW. For a little while last year, Bob and I went back and forth about trading my old Harley-Davidson Sportster for his old BMW R 1150 RT. We never made it work, and [...]
They say: “More dynamic and more thrilling than ever.” We say: “And easier to ride too.” By Ari Henning Earlier this year BMW introduced the RnineT , a classically styled machine that celebrates 90 years of Boxer-powered roadsters. Not long before that BMW launched the S1000R , a freakishly fast naked bike that represents the [...]
The Long-Awaited BMW R1200RT takes on The World! By John Burns The BMW we really wanted to take along for our epic sport tour to Yosemite back in July was the company’s new R1200RT, but a batch of faulty rear shock shafts on the ESA models put the kibosh on that, so we wound up [...]
The BMW S1000R, pictured on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria (Photo: Chris Blain) By Loz Blain The S1000R might be 33 horsepower (25 kW) down on its S1000RR superbike brother, but it’s vastly more aggressive, raw and challenging on the road. We spent 10 days with BMW’s latest, greatest super-naked motorcycle, its bad-tempered hair-trigger throttle, [...]

By: Andrew P Collins BMW got into motorcycles in the 1920s, and they’ve turned out more than a few legendary bikes since. Today their two-wheeled lineup is more diverse than ever; I’ve just had a chance to experience the spectrum on their stripped-down screamer and fully-fluffed luxury liner. Every year following the New York Auto [...]
Just exactly who is the new S1000RR-with-an-R-missing for, and why would anyone want it? Why the question above? Simple. We’ve too often witnessed a manufacturer offering a handlebar version of its open-class sportbike, only to be disappointed when we learn that the machine has also lost its character, performance, and smarts. So, getting right to [...]
Long Distance GS By: Damien Bertrand The last representative of the machines dedicated to travelling across the planet, if not just by their style, the R 1200 GS Adventure makes of “extreme” its reason for being. However you can cross them in the urban jungle as well as the virgin jungle. An ability to seduce [...]
What’s New: After putting a couple hundred miles on both the BMW K1600GT and BMW K1600GTL, I’m afraid I can’t report that they’re all-day comfortable. You see, even two days later, my thighs are still sore. It’s not a question of ergonomics, it’s just that spending an entire day hanging off the side of a [...]
BMW’s F800GT made a mark on us from our initial First Ride report. And after another couple of months of living with the propeller brand’s latest middleweight sport tourer, it’s safe to say that this is the one motorcycle that we’d love to keep in our garage due to its proficient road performance and day-to-day [...]
By Roland Brown It might be a slightly unfair comparison, but if adventure bikes are motorcycling’s equivalent of the 4×4 the new BMW F800GS is a traditional Land Rover: down-to-earth, slightly crude in places, but built like a tank and well designed for its job. In the BMW’s case, that job is long-distance travel, [...]
