BMW wins more motorcycle awards

On the heels of receiving three prestigious awards for the BMW F 800 GS from America’s top U.S. motorcycle magazines, BMW Motorrad USA was awarded four more honors from Motorcycle.com, a leading motorcycle enthusiast web site reaching 75,000 subscribers.

In its first annual Motorcycle.com "Best Of " awards, BMW Motorrad’s R 1200 RT was named Best Touring Bike for 2009. The BMW K 1300 GT was named Best Sport Touring Bike, while the F 800 ST was given an Honorable Mention for Best Sport Touring Bike; and the F 800 GS captured its fourth award of the year, being named Best On-Off Road Bike.

Earlier this year, the BMW F 800 GS was named 2009 "Motorcycle of the Year" by Rider Magazine, "Best Dual-Sport Bike" for 2009 from Cycle World, and Motorcyclist’s "Best Adventure Bike" for 2009.

"We are delighted to receive these prestigious awards for several of our motorcycles in one year," commented Pieter de Waal, Vice President, BMW Motorrad USA. "It is a true credit to BMW’s legacy of excellence in the design, technology and production of versatile motorcycles that meet the evolving needs of today’s riders."
