Alright so I had the enjoyable experience of riding a K12S for a day throughout all the scenic backroads in my area. The first thing I noticed was how smooth it was. Everything was so finely tuned to perfection. There were no raddles, no knocking in nuetral, and the revs jumped up to 11 grand so fast it was almost scary. top speeds are easily attained with little hesitation as well.
I love my F800 but after I jumped back on it, it just seemed sluggish and a bit raw. BUT it carves through the corners with ease, allowing me to confidently throw that knee out. I felt like the K bike was fighting me a bit in the tight corners, but im thinking that was just my inexperience on the bike.
Who else has ridden this beast because I need someone to convince me not to sell the 800 and jump up to the K1200S.
