BMW Motorrad UK has walked away with three awards at the annual Motor Cycle News dinner.

The company was presented with the coveted Best Trailie, Best Sports-Tourer and Best Tourer awards.

This recognition is testimony to the fact BMW have successfully made the transition from niche to mainstream manufacturer.

Best Trailie Award was presented for the R 1200 GS Adventure, while the 152 hp four-cylinder K 1200 GT won the Best Sports Tourer award. Quality bikes for sale: Click here.

BMW Motorrad's General Manager for Motorcycles, Adrian Roderick, said: "We’ve had a fantastic year so far in 2006 with the launch of six new models.

“To receive more awards than any other manufacturer proves that we are achieving our objectives. With five new models for 2007 currently on show at this year’s International Motorcycle and Scooter Show in Birmingham – including new supermoto, enduro and sports machines, you could say BMW is on a roll."
