Sport Touring Bikes
Which is the fastest?
Since I recently got a Yamaha FJR1300 I thought it would be interesting to compare the speed and horse power tests for the major Sport Touring bikes on the road today.
The bikes I consider the true Sport Touring bikes right now are the Yamaha FJR1300, Kawasaki Concours, BMW K1600, and the Honda ST 1300. I just got a recent issue of Motorcycle Consumer News and I thought I would share some of the results from their performance index. The performance index lists hundreds of different bikes but I wanted to focus on the bikes in my mental wheel house right now, the Sport Touring models.
|Model||MSRP||Engine||HP||Weight||MPG||Top Speed||0-60||0-100||1/4 Mile|
|2012 BMW K 1600GT|
|Honda ST 1300|

My FJR is not the fastest, but when you combine the power to weight ratio, comfortable ride, and smooth handling…it is one nice ride.
