And so, kudos to BMW for continuing to outfit its famed boxer engine with a sporting flair. The 1,170cc DOHC, air- and liquid-cooled engine nestles inside a compact steel frame, and remarkably, its 125 rated hp is similar to what the early four-cylinder racing superbikes made. Also in the “plus” column, the crisply designed sport-touring bodywork is proportioned to provide a highly comfortable seating position, aided by a long, flat seat, mid-rise handlebar, and low-mounted footpegs. Translation: Actual adults will enjoy riding this bike! Useful standard features include an adjustable windshield, two selectable power modes, stability control, a hand-adjustable shock, and ABS for the triple-disc brakes.
