Had a new BMW1200GS water-cooled for a testing weekend from the official BMW distributer / importer in Shanghai.
Nice bike with a lot of new developments but would not trade in my Ducati MTS1200S.
The MTS rides like a revved up super-moto on steroids. It has some ADV / dirt bike feel but super-bike performance in the twisties and feel more comfortable on a lighter powerful bike like the MTS compared to the big heavy beemer.

Next test rides will be on the new BMW F800GS ADV and the BMW F700GS (don't like the cast wheels) once they are in the country.
Loved my old F800GS "Bumble Bee" and the new model can only be better but time will tell......
