2012 BMW K1600GT vs. 2011 Kawasaki Concours 14 ABS

Sport-Touring taken to the next level BMW and Kawasaki have long battled in the sport-touring category and have gone head-to-head in shootouts on this site since 1996. This time BMW takes aim at the Kawasaki Concours 14 with some heavy artillery in the form of the new K1600GT. For full review: http://www.motorcycle.com/shoot-outs/2012-bmw-k1600gt-vs-2011-kawasaki-concours-14-abs-video-91105.html Sport-touring riders don't carry city maps in their bags. They're the type that pulls out a state — or even country — map and places pins at the start and end points. In between, they search for the longest squiggly lines they can find, preferably in succession. They're a discerning type, too. In order to ride long distances, the chosen motorcycle has to be plenty comfy yet have provisions to carry everything needed for the journey. Not only that, but sometimes their steed serves as the only companion on the trip, so it also needs to inspire, motivate and thrill.
