2009 BMW R1200GS
Twisties? Touring? Gravel roads? It hardly matters because to the R1200GS, the most versatile machine in the 2008 GS lineup. This year, a 5% increase in power raises its output to 105 ponies for even quicker acceleration. Handling is agile and precise thanks to a Telelever suspension system, and with Enduro ESA (Electronic Suspension Adjustment) you can adjust both front and rear suspensions between Sport, Normal, Comfort, and Off-road settings. The result? A bike that thrashes every road you throw at it and begs for more.
