I am a bit concerned about 2014 being the 1st year of that model and I have heard some issues with the insurance coverage on the bikes that were recalled.

Can anyone bring me up to speed with what to look out for on these 14's or should I just go with the 2013.

Thanks.


I had a 2011 R1200RT. Very competent bike but I missed the power of my K bike and ST1300. A bit tall feeling and good handling but not great. My 2015 R1200RT is so much better. I'd be hard pressed to find a reason to pick the previous model other than what should be a noticeable price reduction for the older model.

The past version of RT was a very good bike. The current model may be a great bike.

The 2014 model did have the early recall for the suspension part but that has been well sorted for a while now. I see less complaints about the current model than I did the previous model.

As others have said .... the 2005 Hexhead and Camheads were good bikes and I love my 2006 .... the WetHead is BETTER !!
