My '15 R1200R had a bad battery. I wouldn't start after I turned it off on a test ride. Couldn't bump start it in third going down a pretty big hill.

Got a new battery under warranty.

I think it depends on what you are used to. The vibes from the S1000r do a number on my hands and wrists. I think I have some carpel tunnel though. The R1200 twins don't.

Absolutely subjective. I'm happy with the grips on my '15 GSA but I don't feel like they get as hot as the hexhead and camhead grips. Light years better than my '13 GSW was though.
