1999 BMW K1200LT: “Thanks to [BMW’s] recently knuckling down and building a proper frame for the latest big four-cylinder mill—one that is stiff enough to allow rubber-mounting the engine and isolates the rider from vibration—today the K1200RS and K1200LT are two of the finest motorcycles on the planet. // In our opinion the formula works best on the new 1999 K1200LT luxury touring machine, which could put all of the heft in the rigid, aluminum-alloy, chill-cast single-backbone chassis to good use and still end up a bit lighter than its luxury-touring competition. A few tweaks to the K1200RS powerplant gave it comparable torque and more horsepower, leaving the only major engineering chore to properly adapt the BMW Telelever front and Paralever rear suspension systems to luxury-touring duty. This added excellent suspension compliance without fork dive or undesirable shaft-drive input to an already solid handling package with very satisfying power.” (Rider, June 1999; photo courtesy BMW)
