The Five Best BMW Motorcycles from 2010-Present

BMW takes the production of motorcycles seriously. Sales reflect the popularity of their bikes which are known internationally for style and high performance. The company insists on the delivery of quality and prestige and each unit produced is crafted to provide comfort, excellence in handling and amazing balance. This reputation continues forward with each new generation of BMW motorcycle designed and manufactured. Here are the five best that were made from 2010 to the present.

BMW K1600GT

The K1600GT was first introduced to the world at the Intermot motorcycle show held in Cologne, France in July of 2010. It was released in 2011 for sale to the public. This attractive touring motorcycle was created with the North American market in mind. The inspiration for this model was taken from the K1300GT and its predecessor the K1200GT. It’s powered by a 1,649cc straight six with transverse mounting. It broke ground with adaptive headlights that maintain a consistent beam level regardless of the pitch of the bike. The cast magnesium alloy subframe makes this unit light in weight. This model features multiple drive modes and an electronic throttle control. This model won multiple awards in its first year of production for being “Best Tourer.”

BMW S1000RR

The S1000RR is a special model that singled out 1,000 of the units made in 2009 to tweak them specifically for the homologation requirements for the World Superbike’s specifications. The bike was made for commercial release beginning in 2010. It features an optional electronic traction control and a standard anti-lock braking system for the road versions. This sports bike is powered by a 999cc inline-4 engine that cranks out 199 horsepower and 83 lb-feet of torque with a 6-speed chain drive transmission. From 2013 through 2014, the S1000SR was made in an HP4 model. This motorcycle is the winner of multiple best in its class in 2010 2011.

BMW R1200GS

The R1200GS is the BMW Motorrad manufacturer’s most popular production model. It has gone through a series of evolutions beginning with its introduction in 2004 through 2012. The Adventure model made its debut in 2005 and was produced through 2013. The LC was launched in 2013 and is currently still in production, along with the Adventure LC model which was first produced in 2014. The R1200GS was inspired by its predecessor the R1150GS.

BMW F800GS

The F800GS is a unique model that became a favorite of road and track enthusiasts who wanted a bike that could handle the track and perform with precision and responsiveness on the road. This model made its debut in 2008, and although it’s heavy and less adapted for off-road use than a traditional dirt bike, it can handle the task. The F800GS is powered by a 798cc parallel twin 4 stroke engine. It achieves a top speed of 120 miles per hour. The larger size makes it a comfortable ride and for those who want to make the addition, there’s a factory Enduro skid plate available upon request for better adaptation off-road. The F800GS is one of the most highly preferred BMW bikes for riders who don’t mind using the same bike for road and track.

BMW HP2 Sport

The HP2 Sport is an aggressive looking sports bike that has the power to back up its threat of speed. It gets its 128 horsepower from a 1,170 cc flat twin oilhead that features oil cooled heads and air cooled cylinders. Gear changes may be made without clutch engagement. The 8 valve engine is fuel injected and paired with a frame that is made from ultra-light materials. It’s well suited for both track and the road. BMW released the HP2 in two models which include the HP2 Megamoto that was produced between 2007 through 2010 and the off-road model from 2005 through 2008, but the HP2 Sport is the most popular member of the family and continues forward in production through the present. The HP2 Sport remains a popular choice for riders who enjoy the benefits of a dual capacity bike that has sporty attractiveness, speed, and street legal status.
