The R1200R is a great bike. A friend has the R1150R and he can ride the wheels off of it.
Lighter than the KGT, great handling, easier to work on ie. valve adjustments, better fuel economy, full touring capability,
The engine is not as smooth as your K motor, not as much protection from wind, rain, etc.
IMHO I think the 1200R would be redundant for you.
Just my .02.
