I previously had a 2015 r1200r which I had purchased after owning a K75 for 19 years. I was very impressed with how smooth the R1200R ran which was one of the main factors in my decision to let my trusty K75 go.

About a year into ownership a suicidal deer ended it's life and the life of the R1200R.

Liking the 2015 R1200R so much I purchase a new 2017 R1200R. Not as smooth and around 4,000 RPM irregardless of which gear, the engine acts as if the timing is off, very rough and increased vibration.

Before I take it to the dealer I though I would run this by you guys (and girls) for real world experiences and knowledge.
