Kawasaki 1400GTR v BMW K1300GT - the verdict's revealed on Wednesday

Published: 04 December 2009

Kawasaki has the K1300GT firmly in its sights with its uprated 2010 1400GTR. Surly they can’t beat the German experts at only its second attempt? Our test in MCN on Wednesday will reveal all.

Kawasaki’s 1400GTR hyper-tourer has received a major make-over for 2010 with one goal only – to leapfrog BMW’s reigning K1300GT as top dog in the class.

To find out if it has achieved just that we’ve ridden all the way to BMW’s back garden, Germany, to ride the bikes head-to-head.

Over two long days we’ve covered hundreds of miles in everything from the damp and freezing to sunny flat out runs down unrestricted German autobahns.

Which would come out on top in this world exclusive group test? The answer may surprise you.
