Why Choose a BMW Motorbike?

BMW is one of the leading motorcycle manufacturer’s in the world and in the form of its big engine Adventure Sport and Touring models, it has some of the most popular bikes in the UK in its line-up, too.

That’s echoed on The Bike Insurer where BMW sits firmly in the top ten list of manufacturers that receive the most quote requests on our site, year-on-year.

BMW’s leading bike and technology

And the bike that leads the way for the German manufacturer is the BMW R 1200 GS.

The reason for BMW’s dominance of the high-capacity end of the market is, as well as lots of power and strong performance, a comprehensive range of electronic systems and rider aids on board its models.

That means its models have things like dynamic suspension systems, different riding modes and ABS – all of which can influence your insurance premium for the better.

Just a pity about corrosion on frame. Never had any problems with this bike and it is just over 7 years old with almost 20,000 miles on the clock. It feels like it is now only run-in and ready for thousands of more miles..

If not for the corrosion I would have given her a "Very Good" rating.
