Trophy vs BMW RT

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
over in the "On Two Wheels, Bikers Chat" Section of the Forum :

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

Cheers  :821:

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.
