Retro Roadsters Revisited: BMW R nineT Pure vs Honda CB1100EX vs Triumph Bonneville T120 Black

E. Brasfield: “The BMW is the sportiest of the trio, and the riding position reflects that. While the upper body is mostly upright, the pegs will fold longer-legged riders up the most. The payoff is the best cornering clearance. Whether you’re leaned over or not, the Pure offers the sharpest, most responsive steering from its wide handlebar, making it a surprisingly agile backroad performer. Having 17-inch wheels front and rear is at least partially responsible for this sportiness.”
