The BMW K1200GT is a sport-touring motorcycle made by BMW. The second generation K1200GT, introduced in 2006, uses essentially the same inline-4 engine as the BMW K1200S sportbike, which held the world speed record in 2005 for its class at 173.57 mph (279.33 km/h), and the K1200R. The new model is lighter and more powerful than the first generation K1200GT, which was introduced in 2003.
Standard features include adjustable seat, handlebars, integral ABS, panniers and electronically adjustable screen. Available options include: electronic suspension adjustment (ESA), xenon light, on board computer including oil level warning, automatic stability control (ASC), heated seat, heated hand grips, tire pressure monitoring (TPM), cruise control and anti-theft alarm
In late 2008, the K1200GT was replaced by the K1300GT, which featured a 136 cc larger displacement engine producing 175 bhp (130 kW) and 103 lb·ft (140 N·m) of torque. The new bike also features improved optional ESA-II electronic suspension adjustment, a conventional single indicator switch and concealed crash bars.
