We set out to answer your 24 most important questions about the new BMW K1200S in the latest issue of MCN – from how powerful it really is (as measured on the dyno at the back wheel) to why no-one can get a test ride at the moment.
The answers include:
Its true maximum speed,
Why it’s a full 50kg heavier than an R1 (fuelled-up and ready to ride),
How it’s faster than a ZX-12R from 40-80mph in top gear
Why this really should be your first BMW.
How it compares to an R1, Pan and ZX-12R
MCN chief tester Trevor Franklin says: “It would be fair to say the K1200S could be the most versatile bike ever. I say could – BMW has to iron out the bike’s teething troubles first.”
