    Looking at the purchase or either bike.   Leaning towards the Trophy.   Ridden both, like both.
    Price difference is a factor, but some say over years of riding the RT is worth the extra $$$$.
    Any imput would be great.

    Thanks.    :028:

    Hi Deerslayer and :400: to the Forum !

    Have a look at this post : Trophy vs BMW R1200RT

    You'll also find comparisons with other bikes in that Section  :028:

    Hi Deerslayer.

    The only solution: do what I did, test ride both.

     :400: to the forum.  I had a 2010 R1200RT, and I personally like the Trophy better, and accessories are less expensive.  Fuel mileage is very similar, but longer service intervals on the Trophy.
