Smile K12gt Versus R1200s

With full tanks of gas and 70 kg riders, these bikes offer comparable performance:

GT has 0.196 bhp and 0.124 lb/ft per pound of total weight.

S has 0.196 bhp and 0.133 lb/ft per pound of total weight.

Don't know about gearing and hp and torque curves.

The S has a shorter wheel base and two cylinders suggesting that it might tromp the GT in the tight stuff.

Forgot to mention that the R is also about 150 lbs lighter.

The R12200S has a different riding position and a smaller tank.

The R1200S is more sports orientated.
