    2011 BMW Motorcycle

    Going up against the granddaddy of luxury tourers, the Honda GoldWing (which happens to be taking a break from production this year), the new inline-six 2011 BMW K 1600 GTL promised to make a big splash in the class.

    Not only did BMW create a stylish luxury tourer with more high tech equipment than a US Manowar, the Bavarians launched it in style in South Africa, too. The GTL isn’t quite as luxurious as a Honda Gold Wing, but it’s 10-times more high tech, faster and about $16K cheaper.

    I have to confess that, as a woman motorcycle rider, I feel the need to prove myself. Early in my riding career, I rebelled against electric starting, even though it is obviously a great convenience. I wanted to prove to everyone that I could start the bike myself-like anyone cared.

    Without a doubt, the Ducati SportClassic GT 1000 is the ultimate in a gentleman’s touring mount. It provides the style, grace, performance and, importantly, the comfort that an experienced rider needs to cover considerable distances while retaining the visceral impact that motorcycling bestows upon us.

    Technology, Luxury, and Performance

    In the multidimensional world of motorcycling, the 2010 BMW K 1300 GT exists precisely at the intersection of performance and comfort. These seemingly diametrically opposed functions are elegantly delivered in a sophisticated cocktail of luxury creature comforts and endorphin-inducing power.

    Shiver Gran Turismo

    Add a stylish half fairing, semi-rigid panniers and ABS brakes to the standard Aprilia Shiver 750 motorcycle and you’ve got the new GT edition. A small motorcycle, the Aprilia GT’s seat is comfortable, but the ergonomics are slightly on the sporty side, with a small half-fairing making it better prepared for long journeys than the naked Shiver–so far so good.

    The year 2009 seems to be the year when electric could get a breakthrough into our consciousness for the future in motorcycling and I think the Aprilia Mana 850 GT could be the motorcycle to bring us into a new era in a smooth way.

    Innovative Transmission

    The half-fairing makes the GT version even more unique and lets you get the very best out of the V2 850-engine performance with Sportgear transmission. A two-cylinder engine that with its 76 HP and exceptionally flat torque curve gives excellent performance already at low revs, in acceleration, pick-up and at speed, and is the perfect match for the touring soul of the Mana 850 GT and the motorcyclist’s need for responsiveness.

    Torrid Motorcycle Romance

    Classic beauty compels the discarding of facile thoughts. Answering the market’s current desire for naked retro-style motorcycles, Ducati’s latest effort exhibits a profound respect for the esthetic and performance benchmarks it set in the 1970s with its coveted bevel-drive 750 GT and Sport models. The interlacing of traditional Ducati DNA with a 21st century perspective is embodied in the new SportClassic GT1000.

    2005 BMW K 1200 GT | Motorcycle Review

    To the disappointment of a number of adherents, the K 1200 GT vanished from the BMW motorcycle lineup in 2005. Striving to satisfy the open-class sport touring enthusiasts, BMW has revived the K 1200 GT designation, assigning it to a wholly redesigned machine. A close cousin of the K 1200 S sportbike, the new GT shares its in-line 4-cylinder motor (albeit in a torquier state of tune), frame, and suspension components with the S.
