Mein Auto: 2010 535i - 2007 K1200R
No feedback on the new, but I have a 2007 K1200R Sport (half faired), and it has been hands down the single best street bike I've ever owned! I've owned at least dozen different bikes, including cruisers, full on sport bikes, dual sports, several other BMW's, including R1150R, R1100S, and R1100GS. I did a fly and ride at BMW of Orlando, when they were closing them out at the end of 2007, since the R Sport never fully caught on. I've been grinning ever since, and haven't once gotten a single itch to sell/trade, which normally happens about every other year... One thing I can say definitively is that you will not be wanting more power than the K1200S coming from a cruiser! It pulls harder than any other bike I've ever ridden, yet is mild mannered in the lower rpms around town, and dare I say... easy to ride!
