Re: Daily Driver
If you can, Test ride a 2014 up 1200RT followed by K1600. I run an 2015 RT as a Police Motor 12 hrs a day. Super Machine, light, nimble, fantastic brakes, great MPG, perfect ergonomics. My only complaint would be power, I'm not a huge fan of the Boxer. An inline triple would make this bike perfect, or even a v style Twin. I like the low end torque for slow cone work but still seem to need "Want" more top end when pursuing. The new Wetheads are light years ahead of the old hexhead/ camheads etc. You'll want a 2014+ to get the wethead and wet clutch. Maintenance is oil/ filter change every 6k miles, every 12k mile service is two spark plugs, air filter, final drive oil change. Brake fluid flush every year or so. The lighter weight, superb brakes, hydraulic clutch, and shaft drive make this thing easy to rack up the miles, compared to a HD E-glide. I've ridden the K1600 and love it as well, it's like a bigger RT, little heavier but with more power, probably an even run. RT feels faster through the turns and lighter. The K spools up and just gets it, if you ride solo mostly, RT, 2 up is important, K16.
