BMW K 1600 GT

The BMW K 1600 GT is a sport-touring bike which basically means that it’s a touring bike with a more sporty riding position and aesthetics. It also means that it’s only good for tarred roads, unlike some other touring bikes that are good for gravel roads as well.

This bike has loads of power thanks to its inline 6-cylinder engine that doesn’t seem to sound annoying at all. If you want a bit of oomph sound, you can order your K 1600 GT with the Akrapovic exhaust system from the factory.

Range287 mi / 462 km

Ducati Streetfighter V4S

One of the most exciting motorcycles of the decade, the Ducati Streetfighter V4S. Conclusively, it’s the perfect mix of street and track. And I’m not just saying that because of what their product description says. It really is a bike that fits in perfectly in both worlds.

Unlike the standard V4, the V4S has some goodies like Öhlins suspension and aluminium forged wheels. There’s a whole list of electronic features that control the bike in various ways, mostly derived from MotoGP. Either way, it’s a damn good looking machine.

Streetfighter V4S specs

Top speed168 mph / 270 kph
0-60 mphN/A
Wet weight439 lbs / 199 kg
Power208 hp / 153 kW
Torque91 ft-lb / 123 Nm

Ducati Panigale V4

The Ducati Panigale V4 was the foundation that the streetfighter was built on, though the wheelbase on this bike is 15mm shorter. Anyway, you could say that the Panigale V4 is the first thing that pops into anyone’s head when they hear the name Ducati.

We’re not going into the performance of this bike (specs are below). What I really want to point out is that this is, in my own opinion, the best looking motorcycle on our planet or the universe (depending on what you believe). It’s not only the face of Ducati but it’s the face all sportbikes in general.

Panigale V4 specs

Top speed180 mph / 290 kph
0-60 mph3.3 seconds
Wet weight437 lbs / 198 kg
Power214 hp / 158 kW
Torque92 ft-lb / 124 Nm

Triumph Rocket 3

The Triumph Rocket 3 is available in two versions, the Rocket 3 R and the Rocket 3 GT. The GT starts with a base price of $700 more than the R. The main difference between these two variants is that they are set up for different riding styles.

The Rocket 3 R is for a more forward riding position and has the footpegs in a mid-position whereas the Rocket 3 GT has a leaned-back riding position with its footpegs in a forward-position. The seat height is also lower on the GT. There are also some other differences in features and extras on each variant.

Rocket 3 specs

Top speed145 mph / 233 kph
0-60 mph2.8 seconds
Range156 mi / 251 km
Wet weight700 lbs / 318 kg*
Power165 hp / 123 kW
