Agreed, but I can dream. After all the FJR is 6.6, the ST 1300 is 7.7, and even the Concours is 7.4. I'm always the first to have to stop for fuel.eljeffe said:Never happen. Hell, the LT is only 6 gallons.
I disagree. If you think this is a pure sportsbike go out and ride a ZX10, a GSXR 1000, and R1 or a Blade. The K1200S is a SPORT-tourer, rather than a Sport-TOURER.bhaynnes said:I don't think this thing was ever meant as a touring or sport touring machine. This thing is pure sport bike.
Actually, I think the S is an excellent example of a sport bike. You're right, it's not a "race replica" bike.MadMax said:By no stretch of the imagination could you call this 60 some inch long, 600lb. bike a sport bike in the class of a Gixxer and what not.
Even BMW tried to compare it to the Busa and ZZR. They did not try to compare it to the race replica bikes.
As for it's sport-touring prowess, there are plenty of us who have taken this long range bullet for walkabouts, my last good trip on it was 4000 miles in duration. It is a fairly comfortable bike for touring, one up that is.
