BMW K1200LT New Release 2012

For those touring fans who insist on being pampered, the BMW K 1200 LT is the ultimate two-wheeled 7 Series. This bike-with-everything-on-it has surprising agility, hold-onto-your-helmet acceleration from a powerful 116 hp in-line four cylinder, five speed (plus reverse) engine and supreme accommodations for rider and passenger to cruise across continents in style. The standard features read like a sybarite’s wish list: integral anti-lock brakes, Electronic Suspension Adjustment, electrically adjustable windshield, hydraulic centerstand, heated grips and seats, audio system with RDS radio and single CD changer, Tire Ppressure Monitor, cruise control, anti-theft alarm and Xenon headlamp (and more). Factor in 71 liters of stowage space and prep for a BMW Navigator GPS and the open road becomes a place of indulgence, excitement, and total freedom. All of this for a price that makes every mile a bargain.
