BMW HP2 (2005-2008)

N/A

1170cc, 105bhp, 130mph, Insurance group 14

It’s hard, objectively, to see the point of the BMW HP2. It’s a 105bhp, 175kg off-roader that costs almost £11,000. Yes, it does have some clever technology like air suspension, but on the flip side its use as a road bike is limited, which is why the factory now offers free 17-inch rims and tyres with each new HP2. It’s ...

BMW R1200GS (2004-2012)

£10,550

1170cc, 100bhp, 136mph, Insurance group 13

The BMW R1200GS breezed into the motorcycle world in 2004 and changed it forever. It’s a genuine all-round motorcycle that’s equally at home on a trackday as it is on a grand tour. The BMW R1200GS' 1170cc Boxer engine is a pleasure to use, while the handling, braking, usability and comfort put this motorcycle in a class of one.   Watch the BMW R1200GS take on ...

BMW R1150R (2001-2006)

N/A

1130cc, 76bhp, 120mph, Insurance group 12

The BMW R1150R is an honest-to-goodness Boxer twin that will provide years of faithful commuting service while not exactly setting pulses racing. Once you’ve overcome the idiosyncratic indicator switchgear arrangement (one per bar, plus another to cancel), the lumpy motor and poor gearbox, it’s actually quite endearing.

BMW K1200S (2004-2008)

£10,100

1157cc, 165bhp, 170mph, Insurance group 16

Hyper-sports touring motorcycle. One of the latest BMWs and that means it’s a seriously sorted motorcycle. The BMW K1200S has Suzuki GSX-1300R Hayabusa rivalling power but comfort and practicality too. Some radical engineering and plenty of proven technology. The latest Japanese hyper motorcycles are edging again on power – but the BMW K1200S is never short of shove.   Watch the BMW K1200S take ...

BMW K1200R (2005-2008)

£9,375

1157cc, 167bhp, 170mph, Insurance group 16

The BMW K1200R is another from the latest-generation Beemers that blow away the firm’s reputation for dull motorcycles. A 170mph naked motorcycle with looks that fuse sci-fi and retro with plenty of brawn. Basically a stripped down but modified BMW K1200S. It seems crazy but BMW offer small fairings for the BMW K1200R so you can occasionally use all the 163bhp this ...

BMW K1200LT (1999-2007)

£15,370

1171cc, 116bhp, 130mph, Insurance group 14

It is hard to fault the BMW K1200LT when it comes to the business of transporting two people, plus all their kit, for three weeks touring on a motorcycle. The BMW K1200LT has every mod con you can think of, even if most of them are optional extras, and it goes, handles and stops more than acceptably for such an enormously heavy ...

BMW R1200R (2006-current)

£10,075

1170cc, 109bhp, 130mph, Insurance group 13

By now the world knows BMWs can be fun: the 180bhp K1200S and R models are simply riotous. But somehow the Boxer-engine range has always maintained a straight-faced attitude – diligent, hard-working and hard wearing. Then some bright spark decides the R1200R should be fashionably naked, have sporting pretensions with half decent handling and agility, and a touch of midrange ...
