I'm not a boxer guy, so I don't really care. I've ridden quite a few boxers, and owned two, and I've always felt that the boxer motor is a bit too ahh boxer like.. Not saying I don't like twins. The Aprilia motor is amazing as are the new Ducati's. But I'm sure that the R11S guys will love it. Of course they don't get the Duolever do they :)

I currently ride a slightly modded R1100S. I like the idea of a bit more power with a bit less weight with a smoother running motor and a slicker gearbox. My next BMW will certainly be a K1200S. It is a bike I've been interested in since news first broke and is why I view this site on an almost daily basis.

If the R1200S is a solo bike only, it would not suit my needs at all. My wife and I really enjoy long day rides and short tours.

Cheers
Trevor

I'm not sure these two bikes are a fair comparison. I also have a 12gs and even with more highly tuned engine, I can't imagine that engine would run with the KS.

I also think the Hossak front end is a major step forward.
