“Quel driveability” Ease of grip is amazing for a 1200. The sweetness of the orders are done much, but especially the agility of the bike whatever speed. The BMW flat-twin-specific distribution of masses and discreet but real boxer power bring much pleasure. The engine flat twin double tree over 100hp and 12 Nm of torque is a treat, well evolved over time, torque reversal is sensitive only to the break-even point. Final cardan transmission is really excellent to use, and fairly unobtrusive. Attention to the downshifts in the rain. Road holding is still excellent in the mountains, it is a very swift bike.
On the side of consumption, the average in the maxitest shows 5.58 l /100 km for 17 harvested opinion. Average autonomy is 296 km. No doubt the BMW R Nine-T will feed in turn the Maxitest database in the coming months.
