I've been reading over basically everything I can about the K12R and Sport and can't decide which one I want!
There are only a couple of each within 1000 miles of me, and I'm also trying to figure out a good price too.
I'm going to be coming from a 2007 Aprilia Tuono (and before that I had an 06 Speed Triple), both of which I LOVE. I love the Streetfighter look and it suits me well.
I like the looks of the K12R more but I've read that the K12R Sport is better for long distance riding and touring (but may have more maintenance issues long term?).
My main goals on riding are:
Mostly commuting (so I want something practical that can do at least some luggage), but doing 100-150 mile rides on the weekends, would like something that can still corner well even though I don't do many sharp twisties AND I'm planning on touring for at least 2 weeks across the country this summer.
What would be a good price on a 2006 K12R or a 07 K12R Sport? My budget is $6.5-7k. Anything I should look out for or know for those model years?
Options for K1200R:
--06 w/ 10k miles and heated grips, Leo Vince slip on, HID, fully dealer serviced, and some other small mods listed at $7k
--06 w/5000 miles and ESA, ABS, and heated grips, Akrapovic exhaust, HID, belly pan, ECU upgrade, and other small upgrades BUT he's admitted that he hasn't serviced it and I would need to do that (he's owned it since ~1200 miles). Listed at $7.9k
The K12R Sport are more expensive:
07 Stock with 2300 miles, heated grips, and ABS. Said he wouldn't do less than $8000
07 stock w/2200 miles. Listed at $7500
Several more on CycleTrader all for more than $8k
