As much as I loved my 06 12RT, the 1200 and 1250 LC RTs never grew on me. Butt ugly, cramped ergonomics, loud engine, and not as nimble or precise in terms of handling as expected, compared to my 17+ k16 GT (big surprise on that account, while riding a 1250 RT on the same British b-roads as my k16). Wind protection was also meh, with some ugly helmet buffeting, in my case.The RT is a fantastic bike now with the shift cam it's power to weight ratio is similar to the k1600 and little less to maintain

I had three RT's starting with a 2005 bike and ending with a 2010 machine. I moved to the K16 in 2012 and had three of them the last being a 2017GT sport, now back on a R1250RT.since the end of last yearThe combination of hooligan - gentleman bike, do it all street bike (for me), keeps me hooked on the k16, after all these years. As stated elsewhere, when it works (direct reliability reference) the k16 is unmatched.
