BMW Motorrad was elected best motorcycle brand by readers of the German sports motorcycle magazine PS in their “The Best Sport Motorcycles 2015” survey. More than 21,000 readers took part and voted the BMW R1200GS top of the “Enduro/Supermoto” category while the new S1000RR finished second in the “Sport Motorcycle” category. Finishing second and third in the “Sporty Allrounders” class was the R1200RS and K1300S. Meanwhile, the S1000R was honored by PS readers with a third place in the “Naked” category. The S1000XR finished second and the F800GS third in the “Crossover” category.
“I’m pleased to see the outstanding results our motorcycles have achieved at this election which is focused on sporty motorcycles,” said Stephan Schaller, Head of BMW Motorrad. “I’m particularly glad about BMW Motorrad being elected the best motorcycle brand as well as nearly 20 percent of the readers intending to decide for a BMW when they buy their next new motorcycle. That’s a proof of our make’s desirability and I’m very grateful to the PS readers for this strong vote.”
An award ceremony was held yesterday in Bad Mergentheim, Germany.
