The Mercury Cars Guide : November 28th 2009
14--- Classifieds 62 300 400 carsguide.com.au Saturday, November 28, 2009 FULL SPEED AHEAD: The BMW K1300 R was named Bike of the Year by Two Wheels magazine. The performance of the bike's in-line four-cylinder was universally praised, as were the K Series' comfort and useful technology' THE futuristic BMW K1300 R has earned Bike of the Year accolades from Two Wheels magazine. The testing panel gave the naked sports-tourer the nod ahead of seven serious rivals, including Honda's CBR1000RR, the Yamaha R1 and Aprilia RSV4R. The testing criteria was based on fulfilment of intended design, appropriate use of technology, build quality and perceived value for money. The naked Beemer's dominance of the first three categories meant it also rated highly in the value-for-money stakes. The Two Wheels panel noted: ''It's a lot of money for the bike, especially when you consider the as-tested price of $27,835 plus on- road costs, but you get an awful lot of bike for the money. . .itwastheonebikethatwasableto do it all and not to be fazed by anything the BotY test loop threw at it, from peak-hour traffic, to high-speed sweepers, from bumpy tarmac to dirt roads. It took them all within its stride, and came back looking for more.'' The performance of the bike's in-line four- cylinder was universally praised, as were the K Series' comfort and useful technology. The bike can be specified with electronic suspension adjustment, anti-lock brakes and traction and wheelie control. The Triumph Street Triple R earned the Two Wheels Readers' Choice Award. CRAIG DUFF CarsGuide's picks THE Courier Mail's Mark Hinchliffe has sampled most of the new machines this year and these are his top three --- BMW F800 R: A well-balanced everyday machine at an affordable price for a bike with a BMW badge. Suzuki Boulevard C50: This shows that mid-capacity cruisers don't have to be small or have compromised performance. Triumph Thunderbird: A stylistic and engineering triumph for the iconic British brand. I have also had the privilege of riding the latest examples of our ever-improving machinery and can't go past these --- BMW F800 R: Well-packaged and balanced all-rounder that will do just about anything you ask of it. Hyosung GT250: Fuel injection has added gloss to this affordable entry-level bike that is big enough to take larger riders in relative comfort.
