Here at Northern California Motorcycle Dealers we know that motorcycles are not one size fits all for the majority of riders. Each motorcycle and each brand of motorcycle offers something different. This year, both BMW and Honda released two amazing luxury motorcycles: The BMW K 1600 Grand America and the Honda Goldwing Tour. Although they are both fantastic vehicles, they have some pretty big differences between them. In fact, Motorcyclist Magazine recently did a comparison review to see which motorcycle offered more for the rider. Here’s what they found:
The BMW K 1600 Grand America is a fantastic touring motorcycle that has a great look and top-notch performance capabilities. This motorcycle is about 30 lbs. lighter than the Honda Goldwing Tour, and has a Liquid cooled, four-stroke inline six-cylinder 1,649 engine that delivers 136.8 horsepower and 117 lb.-ft. of torque. The BMW K 1600 Grand America has enough space for two passengers and a luggage capacity of 123 L. It also has a sleek look and is available in two colors. This is the very first BMW bagger bike, and it has already proven itself to be a great option for riders.
The new Honda Goldwing tour was redesigned for 2018. This redesign includes a new engine, new styling, a new look for the dashboard, a lighter weight and improved fuel efficiency. This motorcycle also comes with exciting new technological features and also looks fantastic, but is less powerful than the BMW K 1600 Grand America. The Honda Goldwing Tour has a six-cylinder 1833 cc. engine that delivers 97.8 horsepower and 108 lb.-ft of torque. It also has a smaller fuel capacity than the BMW K 1600 Grand America; 5.55 gallons compared to the BMW’s 7 gallons.
