R1200R? Lower price for a better bike. However flannel shirt is not included.

Griso! and it seems to me that like blended with Ducati Monster also. By the way, from this link "The riding position is comfortable, with a slight reach forward to the handlebars; a position that is very reminiscent of a Ducati Monster. The R nine T is more stable at highway speeds, seemingly less bothered by wind than the Ducati. Despite the slight forward cant, there is little pressure on the wrists."

The R9T isn't anywhere near in the same league as the Monster 1200S

THE Original...

The 2008 HP2 MegaMoto is the Grandfather of the R nine T... Naked, unconventional BMW front end and a hand made 1200 hex head.

Except IMO, the Mega is waaaay more fun as it has seat height and ergos like a dirtbike on steroids...

They did a comparison of the BMW, MG Griso, Honda CB1100, and Indian Scout. The Griso seemed to be the pick of the litter.

Nice find, cheers.

Never seen the Griso compared to the BM before. The Griso gets ignored over this side of the pond.

I would love to have either. But I tip towards the Guzzler cos of the way it sounds.

No idea what Honda are playing at restricting their (gorgeous) bike like that. Poor form.

I cancelled the nine T I had on Order. Waited for 10 months out of the 12 quoted and then got fed up with waiting.

There are quite a few coming up in the UK 2nd hand with just a few hundred miles on them.

Thats strange, last year I was on the phone about to order a new GSA with Ocean BMW in Plymouth when I said I loved the R9T. He said I could have one in 6 weeks if I wanted it Done deal. I love the bike and am happy I am not on just another GSA. The only downside is the riding position for me. The foot pegs are too far forward, soon to be rectified with some rear sets. Its the first BMW I have ever owned that has the riding position wrong. other wise its a great bike.
