BMW Motorrad has once again won over MOTORRAD Magazine readers in by winning nine awards at the publication’s 19th “Motorcycle of the Year” readers’ votes.
This year, BMW Motorrad took home first place in the sport bikes, touring/sport touring bikes, crossovers, and modern classics categories. The brand also managed to place second three time and come in third place twice.
“Once again I am very pleased with the outstanding result our motorcycles achieved and would like to thank the MOTORRAD readers warmly for their vote. Nine podium places are a strong validation for the width of our BMW Motorrad range,” says Stephan Schaler, Director BMW Motorrad.
Standing on the Sports Bikes podium for the third year in a row is the BMW S 1000 RR with 17.8 percent of the readers’ votes. No surprise as the S 1000 RR has the perfect combination of quiet confidence and outrageous velocity thanks to its Race ABS, Dynamic Traction Control DTC and optional Dynamic Damping Control DDC.
Unfortunately, the R 1200 GS didn’t place first in its class and lost by a hair even though it is BMW’s top adventure bike. Perhaps the G310 R or GS variant will come in first place next year.
