Community Announcements

We know it has been a challenging few years for all of us, but last year was especially challenging for the support of this community. We had some significant expenses, while the support from our membership continues to be significantly smaller than years past. If you appreciate this community and want to see it continue to grow and improve, it is important that you support us through subscriptions. We are only supported by the community and a hand full of supporting dealers and vendors. We have continued to keep this community free of intrusive advertising and banners, unlike most other online communities, but if we cannot pay the bills, we will be forced to look at some sort of advertising in the near future. If you are not a member, please take a moment and purchase a subscription.

Please thank the Vendors and Dealers who support this community by giving them a chance to earn your business.

Welcome to the K-Bikes.com - Excellence in Motion.

Announced in July 2010 and available early in 2011 BMW have announced two new motorcycles based on the "Concept 6" shown in 2009. The K1600GT and K1600GTL. The GTL version offers more relaxed ergonomics and better comfort for two-up touring. These models may set the new standard in sport touring .

K12/1300GT (Next Gen) (97 Viewing)
Introduced at the Milan show in 2005 and arrived in dealer showrooms in the spring of 2006. The next generation K1200GT might be considered the best combination of sport and luxury touring.

K12/1300S (30 Viewing)
Who says you can't cover 4 timezones in one day? What it might lack in creature comforts, the K1200S makes up in pure power and style. Like the print ads say, "Pass Cessnas".

K12/1300R/R-Sport (33 Viewing)
It's not uncommon for a BMW owner to have a 'hooligan' side to their personality. Like the K1200R print ads say, "You don't need a hibachi to cook Japanese."

K1200RS/GT (Classic) (49 Viewing)
The K1200RS defined the class of super sport tourer. The K1200GT is the sexy touring sibling of the K1200RS. As the Sport Tourer's alternative to the K1200LT, what they may lack in creature comforts are more than offset by the exquisite combination of both show and go (and go they do... very quickly).

The 'Flying Brick' platform has a proud history going back to 1984. From the K100 and K75 to the ground breaking K1, the K engine has provided a stable platform for serious sport and luxury touring.

BMW steps up into Sportbike, without the touring. No hardbags, but definiitely one you can take to the track.

Our interests may not lie with the K-Bikes alone. Whether it's an R-Bike like the GS or RT, or an F-Bike like the the new F800-series, there is a common bond between all riders in the greater BMW community.
