The strengths and capabilities of a sport-touring bike should be as varied and rich as the roads and destinations in this world. Further, the best bikes in the class should suggest such promise and adventure on even the shortest ride. While last year’s winning Yamaha FJR1300 didn’t make the ’06 voting deadline in standard or push-button-shift “AE” model form, we got the feeling it wouldn’t have mattered. From Electronic Suspension Adjustment to heated grips and seat to electrically adjustable windscreen to capacious saddlebags to the incredible urge of its 152-horsepower inline-Four, the BMW K1200GT is a leap forward in swift comfort and cornering composure. All the bikes in this class promise a lot in terms of how far you can go and how much fun you can have getting there. The BMW K1200GT promises more.
