MCN has spy photos of the new 2014 BMW R1200RT in France.

It will be using the engine from the new R1200GS — a 125 hp, 1170 cc engine. From the we can see that it new fairings on the front, the headlights from the BMW K1600GT and the swingarm and driveshaft from the GS.

To get good (RT good, which is awesome…) wind protection, you a certain frontal area up Which, at speed, lifts the leaving less weight on the tire. Which means crosswind stability.

Aerodynamic fairings, high suspensions and sticky front can only go so far in mitigating it. At some and high up frontal area, the front tire planted to resist being blown requires, tah-dah, actual on the front wheel. The boxer is already mounted as far forward as it can be, and not like the RT doesn’t have of it’s total static up front.

IOW, not much to be gained by altering the layout, wheelbase constant.

A longer swingarm (f800gt has 2 inches than the ST before would help shift forward, but on a megafairing bike the RT, you’d probably need a wheelbase if it weighed 500lbs fueled, and you wanted to retain stability. Which would be as detrimental to the sport aspect of as an additional 80 lbs on a shorter wheelbase. The has much, much less area up high, hence can be lighter without suffering as allowing for more sport,

In the RT is a TOURER. The VFR is a sport tourer. in Electraglide and Goldwing land, is the RT a anything.

The wind protection of a convertible combined with the weight and of sportbike, simply isn’t in the Instead, if you think of the RT as a tourer handles well, and isn’t TOO big for duty (borderline, I know), make more sense.

the F800gt is pretty awesome. It more like a half (and perhaps half :( ) FJR than any other bike I ridden. In my mind it’s as a ( 1up) sport tourer is a too handlebar ( like almost all ), and a price that is pretty even with the FJR. everyone I know who rides don’t rev them to where make their massive anyway, so the gt is potentially as fast, if one is willing to hold onto a bit longer.

If you are less acclimatized than me to BMW vibrations, this may not be an ideal but it is an option that gives you touring, light weight, and stability at the same time.

Stuki, points – i have owned VFRs and decided to move to a FJR years ago to have true bike different than my I would argue the F800ST is again for its size and age being a model. everything the F800 a decade or two decade old VFR did very with a better engine they are both good btw my FJR is revved and actually is more fun ridden harder than (needs better suspension and weight)

my point being the new open-class tourers are all overweight and short in componentry. If a range rover can 800lbs as part fo advancing of art engineering, sport tourer can do
