Re: Anyone test drove XR, or have one already?
I took a demo ride on a 2016 S1000XR back in Sept.
The seat looks very hard but actually they are very comfy, but I only did 20 miles,
It handled very well, I had a passenger also.
The shifting from 1,2,3,4,5,6,are very close, the motor wines up very quick!! Kind of like the K1600.
I think it would be a great bike for around town or short rides up to
100 miles or so.
Would be a different ride to the K1200LT for sure.
