Yamaha FJR1300A (2013-current)

£13,699

1298cc, 146bhp, 154mph, Insurance group

Often overlooked in favour of the new breed of adventure-style sports tourers, the new FJR is a fabulous piece of kit – fast, refined and fun. Although hugely competent and thoroughly desirable, the new FJR isn’t that different to the older model. But there again, that’s no bad thing as the out going bike is also excellent. Overall the new ...

Moto Guzzi California Touring 1400 (2013-current)

£16,132

1380cc, 95bhp, 130mph, Insurance group

The new California is a fabulous looking bike, it’s sophisticated and, dare I say it, sexy, too – it’s a successful modern twist on a classic design. In short it has that little something extra that Japanese, and even American, cruisers can’t match in standard form. What’s more, the big transverse V-twin has typical Guzzi traits, but is far smoother ...

BMW R1200RT (2014-current)

£13,200

1170cc, 124bhp, 145mph, Insurance group

Partially water-cooling the R1200RT has evolved it into an even better tourer. The new motor gives it a bit more bite to take on the likes of the Triumph Trophy while not over-stepping the mark. Despite being a large machine the BMW remains light and maneuverable and the addition of power modes and the advanced electronics have brought it bang ...

BMW F800GT (2013-current)

£8,175

798cc, 90bhp, 120mph, Insurance group

The new F800GT is a bike that can do the daily commute in comfort and safety thanks to the updated fairing, screen and standard ABS, before handling a longer weekend ride with a pillion and luggage. It’s even entertaining on some twisty country roads thanks to the sweet handling, decent brakes and nicely rounded engine. Yes, this capability comes at ...

Triumph Thunderbird LT (2014-current)

£13,999

1699cc, 93bhp, mph, Insurance group

Triumph is keen to emphasise the Thunderbird-based ‘bagger’ LT is much more than AN Other Road King clone. In fact, so much has been changed it’s effecfively an all-new bike. The result is ‘As American as apple pie’. Big, chunky levers, bar grips and switchgear are textbook US cruiser, as is stomping through the heel-toe gearchange. In fact, in virtually ...

Triumph Trophy 1200 SE (2012-current)

£14,299

1215cc, 132bhp, 130mph, Insurance group 17

Like the preceding Explorer adventure bike, Triumph’s new tourer, the Trophy,  has probably swept to the top of its class first time out by, if not being shiningly the best at anything, then certainly being the best tourer overall. It has a fabulous powertrain, decent handling, glorious comfort and more gizmos than you can shake a hefty stick at.

BMW K1600GTL (2011-current)

£17,550

1649cc, 160bhp, 140mph, Insurance group 17

The K1600GTL is now BMW’s premier sports tourer and puts the big machine right in the firing line of bikes like the Honda Pan-European, and the Honda GoldWing. Over the GT it comes with a massive top case big enough to swallow two full size helmets, the same panniers as the GT, plus it gets lower and further back handlebars, lower footrests, lower pillion ...

Victory Vision Tour (2008-current)

N/A

1731cc, 92bhp, 110mph, Insurance group 17

The Victory Vision Tour is so out of this world, you wouldn’t be surprised if little green men stepped out of a pannier. But underneath the outrageous size and style is a damned good big-twin tourer loaded with gadgets.

BMW R1200RT (2010-2012)

£13,200

1170cc, 110bhp, 140mph, Insurance group 11

A brilliant touring bike as long as you like it in grey. The RT gets a new fairing, new clocks and an all new 110bhp twin-cam engine which gives it just enough grunt to make it entertaining and sit at high-speed over long distances. It is ultimately comfortable and in all weathers too as the SE version gets a heated ...

Kawasaki GTR1400 (2010-current)

£13,299

1352cc, 139bhp, 151mph, Insurance group 17

Kawasaki has given the GTR a significant upgrade, added to the comfort of the original model with a larger screen and include heated grips as standard. But more interestingly they’ve improved the safety of their flagship tourer with new ABS and traction control. The traction control is really impressive and works off the ABS wheel sensors and is the most ...
