BMW Motorrad claims top accolades in the 2006 RiDER POWER survey

28.09.2006: BMW Motorrad claims top accolades in the 2006 RiDER POWER survey


The BMW Motorrad R1200 RT has been crowned the UK's number one motorcycle by readers of RiDE magazine in its annual RiDER POWER Survey - the fourth time a BMW motorcycle has won this coveted title in the survey's eight year history.

The R1200 RT was awarded the accolade after RiDE readers were invited to nominate and assess their favourite bike according to a number of rating categories. These included build quality, engine performance, rider comfort, reliability, handling and overall impressions. The RT - which also won the 2005 MCN Best Tourer Award in its first year of production - received an overall score of 85.14 per cent, beating 149 other motorcycles to the number one spot.

Over 10,000 readers voted in the survey and each was asked to justify their choice of bike. "Overall this is a brilliant bike - I haven't had so much fun in ages" said one RT owner. A second writes: "I've had no faults, build quality or reliability issues. I'm extremely impressed with my BMW." Another claims that his RT is "the best bike I've ever owned".

The R1200 RT is not the only BMW model to appear in the countdown. The top ten alone features four BMWs, including the 2005 MCN Award-Winning K1200 S, which comes in at number five with an overall score of 82.05 per cent. BMW's sportiest-ever bike receives ample praise for its "excellent handling", "fantastic performance" and "total reliability". The BMW R1100 GS Adventure and K1200 RS were placed at seven and nine respectively, proving that BMW owners continue to enjoy their bikes in the long-term. Eleven other BMW models were featured in the countdown.

BMW Motorrad did not only excel in the Best Motorcycle section. When asked the question "if money was no object, what bike would you buy?" a large number of those surveyed chose the BMW R1200 GS as the motorcycle they lust after, making the 2005 award-winning all-rounder the second most popular "dream bike".

In the 'Your Favourite Dealer' section, BMW Motorrad scored a triple victory. Ocean BMW in Plymouth, CW Motorcycles in Dorchester and Rainbow Motorcycles in Rotherham being placed in first, second and third position respectively in the Best Dealer in the UK section. Ocean and CW also came top of their regional categories. Readers cite the courteous and friendly staff, excellent service and a wide range of BMW accessories as reasons for voting these BMW Motorrad Dealerships as the best in the country.

When it comes to protective clothing, BMW Rider Equipment came top in the both the Best Leather Jacket and Best leather Jeans categories - receiving votes for comfort, protection, style and waterproofing. The BMW SportIntegral helmet was awarded first plave in the Best for Slience category and came 12th out of 66 products in the Best Helmet category. BMW Motorrad also scored a number five rating in the Best Glove section.
