  • Great sport touring...smooth
    By  (I am an Owner) on Aug 15, 2010

    The bike is a great sport touring machine. Very smooth throttle response, kick butt power and comfortable. Just add a touring screen, throttle lock and panniers.

    I purchased a 2008 K-1200S about a month ago (only 400 miles but hey, it is December...)

    The word that comes to mind is WOW! In over 35 years of riding and 50+ motorcycles owned, I can honestly say that this is the best. I only thought that I had ridden high performance sport bikes ...

    I purchased the bike with a generous $ 3,000 rebate which put this bike in the same price line as the cookie-cutter Japanese bikes that you see everywhere.

    If you're thinking about a large displacement sport bike, you owe it to yourself to check-out and test ride the K 1200S- you won't be disappointed!
