BMW Models Scoop 3 MCN Awards

We are extremely delighted that BMW Motorrad managed to scoop three MCN (Motorcycle News) awards this year: the XR, R 1200 R and RT.
The annual MCN Awards are held by the UK’s biggest motorcycle publication and recognise outstanding achievements, innovations and products. The winners are chosen by a panel of expert riders and road testers.
Best Adventure Sport: BMW S 1000 XR. “We love the S 1000 XR. It’s an intoxicating mixture of speed, comfort, sleek styling and raw, adrenaline-fuelled fun. It’s right up there as one of the best BMWs ever.”
Best Naked: BMW R 1200 R. “BMW has subtly sprinkled the R 1200 R with 21st century technology to enhance the riding experience. It’s still simple, wind in the hair biking, but now it has a lovely extra edge – and an MCN Award to boot.”
Best Tourer: BMW R 1200 RT. “BMW Motorrad’s current-generation R 1200 RT is on another level, compared to its rivals, which is why we awarded it our best tourer of 2014 and again for 2015. If there was any bike we’d want to do big, continental miles on, the R 1200 RT is it.”
