BMW upgrades two of its finest..

Motorcycle News has the scoop on the much rumoured upgrades to BMWs GS and RT bikes, widely considered to be the best adventure and touring bikes around.

The company has kept everything that works on these popular bikes and added some incremental, but significant changes.

On the GS the engine and exhaust systems get a make over to improve torque and over all speed with its new powerful double overhead camshaft engine lifted from the BMW HP2 Sport.  Looking at comments of GS owners online that would seem to answer the most mentioned complaint of the current bike, that it can run out of steam on the highways.

The same engine is headed for one of the most popular and accomplished tourers on the market, the BMW 1200RT.

That along with improved body work to give further protection when crusiing the autobanns, improved electronic suspension options, and some luxury entertainment upgrades, will make what some consider to be the best only better!
