BMW’s R 1200 RT has been announced as the ‘Overall RiDER Power Winner’ in RiDE magazine’s annual RiDER Power Survey. This is the third time BMW’s RT has taken the top award and it has also been joined by other BMW models this year. The K1300 S was awarded ‘Best Sport Tourer’ whilst the award for ‘Best Trailie’ went to the R 1200 GS Adventure with the F 800 S collecting the award for ‘Best Half-Faired Middleweight’. To top off the awards BMW was announced as the winner of the ‘Best Brand’ award for the second consecutive year. BMW’s supersports bike the S1000 RR was declared as one of the most reliable motorcycles as a result of the survey.
Commentating on the announcement of the awards Adrian Roderick, General Manager, BMW Motorrad UK said, “BMW Motorrad always values customer feedback; to receive such positive recognition in the UK’s most important survey is truly gratifying. The R 1200 RT has taken the top prize for the third time, which is a huge achievement, but to have the S 1000 RR and F 800 S praised shows that BMW Motorrad is strong across the whole spectrum of motorcycling. Winning the ‘Best Brand’ Award for the second year running is great recognition for the hard work our Dealerships and staff put in to ensure the best possible experience for owners.” For details on BMW Motorrad motorcycles please visit www.bmw-motorrad.ie
