Since returning from South Africa in January, where I was among the first wave of journalists at the world launch of BMW’s all-new, air/liquid-cooled R 1200 GS, I’ve had a jones to ride the bike again. As I wrote in my first-ride report, “The new, more highly evolved R 1200 GS is better in nearly... Read more »

2013 BMW F 700 GS: Ridden & Rated

The agile, versatile BMW F 700 GS has the tallest standard seat height here, at 32.3 inches, but with the factory accessory low seat and low suspension kit, seat height is just 30.1 inches.

Height-adjustable or optional low seats can drop seat height by an inch or so, but for many riders that isn’t enough, especially on dual-sport/enduro motorcycles with large-diameter front wheels and long suspension travel. Given the popularity of BMW’s GS line, the Germans have gone one step further.... Read more »

Retrospective: BMW R25/3 250: 1953-1955

1954 BMW R25/3

Clement Salvadori
January 2, 2013

Some people think that until the last turn of the century, BMW built pretty stodgy motorcycles that were good for the touring rider, but rather weak on performance. To a degree that is true, but back in the ’30s, Bavarian Motor Works was as much a pioneer of innovation as it is today. In 1935, BMW... Read more »

November 26, 2012

When BMW decided to update the F 650 GS for 2013, it was clearly in a generous mood. The folks in Bavaria gave the street-biased enduro model more horsepower and torque, a shorter gear ratio for quicker acceleration, a second front disc brake, new switchgear and instrumentation, and updated styling.... Read more »

Ridden & Rated: 2012 BMW R 1200 RT

Extensively updated for 2010, the R 1200 RT has a more powerful engine, sleeker styling and improvements to its optional ESA and audio.

September 7, 2012

My, how time flies. Our last full test of a BMW R 1200 RT was back in August 2005, when you could still get money for nothin’ and mortgages for free. And an RT hasn’t ridden through the pages of Rider since July 2008, when we compared it to the Moto Guzzi Norge 1200—right about the time gas prices... Read more »
