We'd delighted that three of our models have picked up MCN Awards: the XR, R 1200 R and RT.
The annual MCN Awards are held by the UK’s biggest motorcycle publication and recognise outstanding achievements, innovations and products. The winners are chosen by a panel of expert riders and road testers.
Here's what the judges at Motorcycle News had to say on the winners:
Best Adventure Sport: BMW S 1000 XR.
MCN Awards judges said: “We love the S 1000 XR. It’s an intoxicating mixture of speed, comfort, sleek styling and raw, adrenaline-fuelled fun. It’s right up there as one of the best BMWs ever.”
Best Naked: BMW R 1200 R.
MCN Awards judges said: “BMW has subtly sprinkled the R 1200 R with 21st century technology to enhance the riding experience. It’s still simple, wind in the hair biking, but now it has a lovely extra edge – and an MCN Award to boot.”
Best Tourer: BMW R 1200 RT.
MCN Awards judges said: “BMW Motorrad’s current-generation R 1200 RT is on another level, compared to its rivals, which is why we awarded it our best tourer of 2014 and again for 2015. If there was any bike we’d want to do big, continental miles on, the R 1200 RT is it.”
