Even though these motorcycles reside in the same market space and have comparable specs, there are some significant differences. The BMW offers more performance, more fuel (its 7-gallon tank holds an additional 1.5 gallons), more luggage capacity, and, if you get an unadorned base bike, the BMW even has a lower price. It’ll cost you $26,700 to buy a Gold Wing Tour, or $23,195 to hop on a Grand America. That $3,500 is a big delta, but our bike obliterates it with the Premium Package and Safety Plus Package, which push the bike’s MSRP to $27,015. Which, at this strata, is in the noise.
