De beste tweedehands tour motoren voor comfortabele lange afstandsritten

De beste tweedehands tour motoren voor comfortabele lange afstandsritten afbeelding

Touren op een motor is één van de gaafste dingen die je kunt doen. Iedere dag honderden kilometers afleggen om op een specifieke bestemming te komen. Of gewoon helemaal zonder plan je hoofd leeg rijden. Een lange afstandsrit is hoe dan ook een prachtige ervaring.

Vandaag de dag kun je als liefhebber van de tourmotor je hart ophalen. Er zijn meer  tour motoren dan ooit op de markt, gericht op verschillende motorrijders die allemaal maar 1 ding willen doen: kilometers vreten.

Tour motoren zijn een bijzonder motortype, bijna een vreemde eend in de bijt. Ze moeten niet alleen betrouwbaar en krachtig zijn, maar ook staat zijn om hoge snelheden kunnen bereiken. En dat terwijl ze vaak zijn volgeladen met zware bagage. Daarnaast moeten ze ook nog eens comfortabel zijn. En als het even kan, ook uitgerust zijn met een breed scala aan accessoires. Zodat je als rijder kilometer na kilometer ontspannen door kunt rijden.

Motor kopen

Hoewel je in essentie op iedere motor lange afstandsritten kunt maken, zul je er veel meer van genieten wanneer je dit op de juiste machine doet. Je wilt comfortabel kunnen rijden en dat betekent dat je een motor nodig hebt die erop gebouwd is om de kilometers vol zelfvertrouwen op te vreten. Je hoeft daarom niet op je hardcore sportmotor te springen en te verwachten dat je honderden kilometers comfortabel aflegt. Je hebt een tour machine nodig. In deze lijst zetten we daarom de beste (tweedehands) tour motoren voor je op een rij.

BMW K 1600 GT

Met de BMW K1600 GT krijg je heel veel motor. Op deze machine is het verdomd lastig om niet als een gek het gas los te trekken en de bochten aan te vallen. De zescilinder van de  K1600 is echt waanzinnig om mee te rijden, daardoor heeft de motor een overschot aan kracht. Maar dat merk je bijna niet doordat hij echt boterzacht rijdt. Dankzij het windscherm wordt de wind in je gezicht beperkt en de geweldige vering zorgt ervoor dat iedere hobbel op de weg wordt omgezet in een lichte deining. Op deze motor ervaar je bijna het gevoel van ronddobberen op een opblaasbootje in het zwembad. Lekker en relaxed ronddobberen terwijl je geniet van de rust om je heen.

Harley Davidson Electra Glide

Amerikaans touren op z’n best. Er zijn maar weinig dingen die je meer Amerikaans laten voelen dan het rijden over een eenzame snelweg met een Harley-Davidson V-Twin die onder je ronkt. Zoals het bedrijf uit Milwaukee zelf al zegt: op een Harley vind je vrijheid in stijl. De Electra Glide is een uitdaging om te gaan rijden, want het is een zeer krachtige machine. Het frame en de vering voelen super stabiel aan, wat je van Harley gewend bent. Het motorblok verrast in positieve zin. Op deze Electra Glide ervaar je veel koppel, misschien zelfs wel meer dan verwacht. En er zit bovendien veel vermogen in het middengebied. Tot slot beperkt de balansas in het midden de trillingen, wat het rijden op deze motor flink ten goede komt. In bochten rijdt de motor erg fijn en zal het koppel je af en toe zelfs verrassen. De Electra Glide bulkt van het plezier en karakter en daagt je daarom flink uit om lekker stevig door te rijden.

Yamaha Tracer 900 GT

De Tracer 900 ziet er door het kuipwerk misschien wat slank en lichtgewicht uit, toch is het een volwaardige tourmotor. De GT erachter zegt het al: het is een grand tour. Dit maakt van de Tracer 900 een ideale partner voor een flinke tour of een fijne motorvakantie. Niet alleen lekker lichtvoetig, hij stuurt ook nog eens behoorlijk scherp. Dankzij het 8900 cc sterke 3- cilinder motorblok is de Tracer bovendien razendsnel. Het blok heeft daarnaast een heerlijk geluid waar menig motorrijder jaloers van op zal kijken. Bovendien is de Tracer behoorlijk zuinig, mooi meegenomen! Hiermee haal je een sportieve, en zeer comfortabele motor in huis. En geen zorgen, er is ook voldoende ruimte voor bagage!

KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

Even je wilde haren laten uitwapperen, dat doe je met veel plezier op de 1290 Super Duke. Bij KTM denk je vaak al snel aan een brute, krachtige naked bike waarmee je met de krachtige V-Twin over het asfalt raast. Met de 1290 Super Duke GT verbreedt KTM z’n mogelijkheden richting het (sportieve) tour segment. En geloof ons, je wilde haren even laten uitwapperen doe je met erg veel plezier op de 1290 Super Duke. Met deze complete en sportieve tourmotor kun je zowel ongegeneerd het gas lostrekken als lekker ontspannend touren om je hoofd leeg te maken. Met het heerlijke gegeven dat er maar liefst 173 pk vermogen op zit, krijg je ongetwijfeld nu al slappe knieën. 

Het enige nadeel is het gemis van een set koffers. Die zul je er helaas nog zelf nog bij moeten aanschaffen…

Kawasaki Versys 1000

De Kawasaki Versys 1000 is een prima tourmotor. Met een uitgebreide uitrusting, goede rijeigenschappen en een wat eigenzinnig uiterlijk. Je kunt deze motor gerust gekscherend een grote, vriendelijke reus noemen. Want het is een stoere, grote motor met een vriendelijk karakter. Een motor die jou als rijder vooral laat genieten. En laat dat nou net zijn waar het bij motorrijden om draait. De Versys 1000 waarop je altijd de controle houdt en die je nooit aangenaam zal verrassen. Verwacht geen verbluffende prestaties. Maar met de Versys 1000  haal je gewoon een no-nonsense motor in huis die de vele kilometers met plezier zal buffelen. En toch heeft de motor een klein, avontuurlijk randje.

Honda Goldwing GL 1800

Zonder blikken of blozen kun je de Honda GL 1800 Goldwing gerust een legende onder de tour motoren noemen. Het is een echte tour gigant. De Goldwing is namelijk al meer dan 30 jaar één van de bekendste tour motoren ter wereld. Dat is natuurlijk niet geheel zonder reden. Want met een motorinhoud van maar liefst 1833 cc heeft de Goldwing GL 1800 één van de grootste motorblokken die je op een motor zult vinden.  

Het is dan ook een flinke motor die 365 kg weegt en een joekel van een achterband heeft. Gelukkig heeft ie een elektrische achteruitversnelling, pfoe. Door zijn gewicht ligt de Goldwing dan ook als een blok op de weg. Van wat oneffenheden in de weg is deze krachtpatser niet snel onder de indruk.

Verder is deze motor voorzien van alle gemakken die je bij een tourmotor verwacht: een mooi TFT scherm, fijn audiosysteem en natuurlijk cruise control. De Goldwing is erg comfortabel. Het is dan ook genieten om lange afstanden te rijden over mooie, glooiende wegen. Het grote en ontzettend comfortabele zadel in combinatie met het brede stuur zorgen ervoor dat je urenlang door kunt rijden. En hoe fijn is het dat je het windscherm elektrisch in hoogte kunt verstellen? 

Ducati Multistrada 1260

Passie, emotie en dynamiek. Termen die nauw verwant zijn met een Ducati. Tel daarbovenop de rauwe prestaties van de Italiaanse motoren en je zult wat raar opkijken dat Ducati zich ook in het tour segment bevindt. De Multistrada is het antwoord van Ducati voor alle liefhebbers van het merk die comfortabel willen reizen. Met dit model weet Ducati het gat tussen een tourmotor en adrenaline perfect te dichten. Geloof ons. Dit is echt een dijk van een motor. Zodra je voor het eerst met de Multistrada 1260 door een bocht vliegt, zul je versteld staan dat een motorfiets van zo’n formaat zó dichtbij z’n sportieve tegenhangers komt. Deze allroad met een focus op toeristisch gebruik weet dankzij de hoogwaardige techniek die we van Ducati gewend zijn, topprestaties op een tourmotor toegankelijk te maken.

Triumph Tiger 1200

Het Britse Triumph heeft met de Tiger 1200 een heuse allroader in het assortiment. De Tiger heeft een zeer comfortabel zadel met een fijne zithouding. Het grote arsenaal aan moderne elektronische systemen maken het rijden nóg prettiger. Ondanks z’n indrukwekkende uiterlijk, is de Tiger super eigenlijk wendbaar. Als je de machine alleen al uit de garage duwt, groeien je spierballen. Maar eenmaal rijdend, merk je niks meer van dat gewicht. Je gooit deze Triumph namelijk zonder problemen een bocht in en weer uit. Dankzij de brede powerband, een fantastische vering, fantastisch comfort en echte offroad-competenties, is dit een geweldige tourmotor. 

triumph tourmotor

Suzuki V-Strom 1000

Dit is de lichtste tourmotor uit dit lijstje en bovendien heeft ‘ie het laagste prijskaartje. Gelukkig zijn dit niet de enige twee redenen om een V-Strom 1000 te overwegen. Met dit model lijkt Suzuki het onmogelijke waar te maken. Want de V-Strom 1000 is niet alleen een wendbare motor voor speelse, avontuurlijke rijders. Want tegelijkertijd is het een stabiele motor voor lange afstanden of woon- werkverkeer. Het motorblok zal beide doelgroepen aanspreken. Het is een krachtpatser, maar hij levert meer dan genoeg bruikbaar vermogen. En dankzij z’n relatief lage gewicht ten opzichte van andere tourmotoren (228kg), komt de motor niet bedreigend over voor forenzen.

What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

If you‘re looking for a powerful, sporty motorcycle aimed at long-distance travel, a sport tourer bike might be your best bet. In many ways, sports tourers are a lot like sports bikes. They’re fast, powerful, and have that sleek, sporty design. On the other hand, most of the best sport touring motorcycles also have a higher windshield, a more comfortable seat, a luggage system, and a passenger seat. In essence, sport tourers are sports bikes adjusted for long hours in the saddle and comfortable travel.

Sport tourers are ideal for motorcycle holidays, high miles, and fun on the mountain twisties. They give the rider that exhilarating feeling of leaning into corners and fast acceleration while providing more comfort riding long-distance. The sitting position on a sport tourer is more upright than on a pure sport bike, and the added luggage system provides for an easier travel setup. In addition, sport tourers usually have pillion seats and footpegs and are loved by riders traveling two-up.

A sport tourer motorcycle differs from a cruiser tourer motorcycle in its design. Cruiser tourers are typically low-slung, offering higher handlebars and a completely upright sitting position. Sport tourer motorcycles, on the other hand, lean more toward sport bikes in the design department and the sitting position is slightly more forward than on a cruiser tourer. In addition, cruisers have wider, lower seats. Equally, an adventure tourer is different because of its capacity of going off-road and its more utilitarian design.

In this article, we’ll list some of the best sport touring motorcycles and sport cruisers comparing the specs, pros, and cons of each bike.

BMW R 1250 RT

BMW R 1250 RT - What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

Called the king of sport tourers by some, BMW R 1250 RT is a classic sport touring motorcycle offering plenty of power, style, and function.

Made for eating up the highway miles and enjoying curvy mountain roads alike, this beast of a machine boasts all the latest bells and whistles. The R 1250 RT has active cruise control, an elegant split dashboard, a patented windshield with superb wind protection, and lots more.

Its boxer engine delivers power and torque smoothly and consistently, and the integrated luggage system makes it easy to travel. In many ways, this is probably the best sport touring motorcycle out there, at least in the BMW range.

Power: 136 HP

Wet Weight: 615 lbs

Seat Height: 31.7 inches

Cons : heavy and tall, may be difficult to manoeuvre on narrow streets; expensive

BMW R1250 RS

BMW R1250 RS - What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

The RT’s sportier cousin, the BMW R1250 RS is more of a sporty motorcycle than a comfy cruiser. While some of its specs – the engine size, horsepower, 6-gear transmission, shaft drive – are identical to the RT, the RS is almost a hundred pounds lighter and has a sportier design. For those wanting a more sportier feel and look, the RS version is a better choice than the RT.

Wet Weight: 535 lbs

Seat Height: 32.3 inches

Pros: sporty look and feel, lighter, faster, more nimble sport touring motorcycle

Cons: less comfortable riding with a passenger

Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX

Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX - What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

The Ninja H2 SX is more of a tourer rather than a sports bike, offering power and comfort in equal measure. Its 988 cc engine is more than enough for both highways and sharp corners, and the bike feels stable and easy to handle while offering plenty of speed and agility. Known for reliability and practicality, the Ninja H2 SX is a sensible, sporty tourer offering quality and comfort.

6-Speed Transmission, Chain Drive

Engine: 988cc

Power: 228 HP

Wet Weight: 577.7 lbs

Seat Height: 32.9 inches

Pros : reliable, well-built, high-tech, adjustable suspension

Cons : has less of a sporty motorcycle and more of a cruiser feel

KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

KTM 1290 Super Duke GT - What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

Lighter and cheaper than the mammoth BMW RT and RS as well as the Ninja H2 SX, the KTM 1290 Super Duke GT is one of the most fun sport tourer motorcycles to ride. It packs plenty of pwoer and torque while being relatively light for its size, making leaning into corners a truly spectacular experience. The Super Duke is smooth and consistent and, due to its lower seat height, is perfect for shorter riders.

6-Speed Transmission

Engine: 1301 cc V-Twin

Power: 173 HP

Wet Weight: 497 lbs

Pros : powerful, light, suitable for shorter riders

Cons: more high-maintenance than the BMW and Kawasaki sport touring motorcycles

Honda NT 1100

Honda NT 1100 - What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

The newest offering from Honda, the NT 1100 is aiming to become one of the best sport touring motorcycles out there. Using the Africa Twin engine and frame, the NT is more powerful featuring a slee, futuristic design. This bike is built for power, performance, and comfort in equal measure. Boasting adjustable power delivery, traction and wheelie control, and three riding modes, the NT 1100 looks like a comfortable and practical yet exciting sport tourer to ride.

6-Speed Transmission, Chain Drive (DCT versions available)

Engine: 1084cc Parallel Twin

Power: 101 HP

Wet Weight: 524 lbs

Pros: practical, comfortable, reliable, well-built, high-tech

Cons: more of a cuiser than a sporty motorcycle, may feel somewhat underpowered compared to BMW RT and RS models

Yamaha Tracer 7 GT

Yamaha Tracer 7 GT - What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

This Yamaha sport bike is a nimble tourer that works extremely well while traveling, leaning into corners, and riding in the city alike. In many ways, the Tracer is one of the best sport touring motorcycles if you’re looking for a lightweight allrounder bike. This is the lightest sport tourer in its class offering easy handling, agility in corners and city streets, and and a torquey engine. This Yamaha sport touring bike is fun and easy to ride, and it’s suitable for both experienced and beginner riders.

Engine: 689cc Twin

Power: 72.4 HP

Wet Weight: 432.1 lbs

Seat Height: 33.1inches

Pros: lightweight, agile, reliable, well-built, minimalist design, suitable for newer riders

Cons: less powerful than most big sport tourers

Suzuki GSX-S1000 GT

Suzuki GSX-S1000 GT - What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

Much like the Tracer, the Suzuki GSX – 1000 GT is a smaller sport touring motorcycle.However, it’s both powerful and torquey for its size and weight boasting a 999cc engine and 150hp. The sleek design makes it look more like a sporty motorcycle than a chunky cruiser, and it more than delivers in the speed department. The GT is fast, quick in corners, and practical: Suzuki is well known for building reliable motorcycles.

Engine: 999 cc

Power: 150 HP

Wet Weight: 498 lbs

Seat Height: 31.9 inches

This sporty motorcycle is extremely well-balanced and forgiving for beginner riders while remaining a solid, powerful sport tourer for longer rides, mountain twisties, and urban commuting alike. One of the most affordable models in the BMW sport tourer range, the XR is an excellent choice for riders looking to buy a reliable, confidence – boosting bike.

Engine: 895 cc Parallel Twin

Power: 105 HP

Wet Weight: 482 lbs

Seat Height: 32.4 inches

Honda GLX 1800 Gold Wing

Honda GLX 1800 Gold Wing - What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

Although sport touring motorcycles typically lean more toward sport bikes than cruisers, sport cruisers are a category of its own. Just as powerful and fast as their more sporty counterparts, sport cruisers are built for long-distance touring and comfort. Honda Goldwing is the undisputed king of sport cruisers, nad has been fo a long time. Arguiably, it might just be the best sport cruiser motorcycle out there: a timeless classic, the Goldwing has the power, the style, the comfort, and the sheer presence than no other motorcycle manufacturer has managed to duplicate yet.

6-Speed Transmission (7 speed including reverse DCT available)

Engine: 1833 cc Box

Power: 124 HP

Wet Weight: 848 lbs

Seat Height: 29.3 inches

Pros: incredibly powerful, offers maximum comfort, reliable, stable, low-weight

Cons : very heavy and powerful; may not be suitable for beginners and newer riders

Indian Chieftain Dark Horse

Indian Chieftain Dark Horse - What Are the Best Sport Touring Motorcycles

Another impressive sport cruiser motorcycle, the Indian Chieftain is more of a cruising chopper than a sporty tourer. Still, it deserves a mention because of its stunning looks, low seat and low center of weight, sheer power, and comfort. The Chieftain is a great sport cruiser for riders preferring a luxury cruise rather than fast cornering, and it‘s ideal for long-distance travel.

Engine: 1,890 cc

Power: 192 HP

Wet Weight: 823 lbs

Seat Height: 25.6 inches

Pros: powerful, well-designed, extremely comfortable, low seat suitable for shorter riders

Cons: may be too heavy and powerful for inexperienced riders

Essential Gear for Sport Touring Motorcycles

If you’re considering buying a sport touring motorcycle or a sport cruiser, be sure to gear up. Sturdy, over-the ankle boots, abrasion-resistant pants and jacket with adequate crash protection, gloves, and a good quality helmet are a must when riding sport touring motorcycles. If you plan to ride your sport tourer in colder temperatures, consider getting heated gear. Most new sport touring motorcycles will likely have heated grips, heated seat, and a tall windshield. Still, heated gear will help you stay dry and toasty even on the longer rides.

Riding gear aside, you’ll also need some security measures to make sure your sport tourer is safe, especially while traveling. We recommend only parking your sport cruiser or tourer in secure garages and parking lots. In addition, it’s advisable to carry a disc lock and a motorcycle chain with you so you can secure the bike when parked on the street. Finally, consider installing a motorcycle alarm  for and added layer of security. A tracker will alert you if your bike is being moved, and you’ll be able to track your motorcycle live in case it gets stolen.

Don’t forget to service your sport touring motorcycle regularly. It’s best to stick to the service intervals recommended in your owner’s manual, and don’t skip oil changes and regular checks – it’s important to keep your motorcycle in top shape at all times! If you hope to maintain the bike yourself, check out our motorcycle maintenance for newbies tips and advice.

What is the most comfortable sport touring motorcycle?

The most comfortable sport touring motorcycle is the BW R 1250 RT, followed shortly by sport cruisers like the Honda Gold Wing and Indian Chieftain. See this post for more comfortable (and uncomfortable!) sport tourer reviews .

The Best Sport Touring Motorcycles You Can Buy

[2023 edition].

Updated August 31, 2023 by Simon Bertram

best sport touring motorcycles

For When The Road Calls Your Name

Article quick nav.

These are the best sport tourers you can buy in 2023:

BMW R 1250 RS

Suzuki GSX-S1000 GT

Kawasaki Ninja 650

KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

Honda NC750X DCT

Triumph Tiger 900 GT Pro

Ducati Multistrada V2

Motorcycles come in all shapes and sizes, from sleek, aerodynamic supersports to laid back, wind-in-your-face cruisers. There are bikes made for short trips around town, little runabouts that don't need a lot of power. There are continent crushing bikes that you ride when you're planning on up a month on the road.

With so many types and classes of bikes out there, it's only natural that at some point, many started to cross over and meld into each other. This is precisely what happened when supersports met up with standard-style touring motorcycles, and from that marriage came sport tourers. These are bikes that have good power, agile and responsive handling, but are also immensely comfortable for longer rides with raised handlebars, plusher seats, and sometimes even come with mount points for soft or hard case luggage either side of the tail.

There is also another type of sport tourer that is mostly European based, known as a sport adventure tourer. These take their styling cues from ADV motorcycles, but makes them more comfortable for longer distance road use, tuning the engines for mid-range cruising power, and often come with built in amenities such as plug-ins for heated gear, GPS navigation mounting brackets, and the like.

With all that said, these are, in no particular order, the best sport tourers your can buy in 2023!

About Our Selections

These selections considered ease of use, rideability, price, and how effective each motorcycle was achieving the stated goal of its class. We are confident that any of these bikes will be superb options for most riders.

To qualify for this list, the motorcycle can be of any base type, but oriented towards touring, meaning a sport-standard or standard seating style, touring-style handlebars vs clip-ons, and in most cases a touring oriented windscreen or wind deflector.

2023 BMW R 1250 RS

The bike most people think of when hearing the words "sport tourer," with good reason

tour sport motoren

Why We Picked It:

To be honest, this was the first bike that popped into our heads the moment this list was proposed. BMW is famously known for their touring motorcycles such as their entire K 1600 lineup, but they also have a seriously sport oriented side, with the S1000 RR superbike being a perfect example.

Many a moon ago, BMW decided to marry the two styles of bikes into two amazing bikes, the R 1250 RS and the R 1250 RT . For this list, we've picked the RS, as its name literally means "Road Sport." It is am immensely capable sport tourer, as it takes all of the lessons learned from the K series of bikes, and brings over the capable 1,254cc boxer twin from the ADV side of things, which brings 136 HP and 105 lbs-ft of torque to the table.

What you get is a BMW that is comfortable but sporty, with a low center of gravity, some of the best riding dynamics this side of a track bike, and even a shaft drive so there's no chance of a chain snapping when you're at the top of the Swiss Alps. It also comes as standard with BMW's excellent in-house ABS and traction control, three riding modes for all weather conditions, and one of the clearest, most easy to read TFT dashes on the market.

This is a bike that was made from the very start to be the ultimate riding machine for long distance touring, and to be honest, from how many are sold and ridden across Europe yearly, we think they've nailed it.

Specifications:

Price: $15,695

Engine: 1,254cc boxer twin

Power: 136 HP

Torque: 105 lbs-ft

Transmission: 6 Speed Manual

Curb Weight: 536 lbs

Has everything a sport tourer needs: comfort, accessories, luggage mount points, and a low center of gravity to keep the bike planted and agile for when you want to get some fun going

BMW's excellent rider aids on full display, with dual zone and cornering ABS, traction control, variable riding modes, throttle by wire, and easy access to settings on the fly with the left hand toggle wheel.

2023 Suzuki GSX-S1000 GT

Suzuki's new sport tourer is an amazingly competent piece of kit

tour sport motoren

With only a couple of seasons under its belt, we can honestly say that the Suzuki GSX-S1000 GT is one of the more well-rounded sport tourers we've come across. It is the quintessential definition of a sport tourer, taking the long-serving engine from the GSX-S1000 , fiddling with its timings and settings a bit, and then planting it a modified frame of said bike.

The result is an immensely powerful motorcycle that has extremely linear power delivery, is hugely comfortable, has mounting points all over for tank bags, side luggage, a top case, can carry a passenger without any issue, and just does it all in that efficiently Japanese way. It is also amazingly agile for its size, as it's almost twice as wide as the superbike it got its engine from, gracefully carving corners with confidence so you can appreciate the view as you round the next corner on the mountain road.

It is also one of the bikes using Suzuki's new SIRS system (Suzuki Intelligent Ride System), which has low-RPM assist, intelligent traction control, selectable ride modes, and throttle by wire that is constantly adjusted so you get the most performance per millimeter of throttle twist, without spinning up the rear or having it slide out on a sudden patch of gravel or water.

The standard GT does not come with hard-case luggage, but does include the mount points. If you want it to come with fully installed lockers, it's just $600 more with the GT+, which also includes a few minor things like different paint options and such.

Price: $13,349

Engine: 999cc inline four

Power: 150 HP

Torque: 79.6 lbs-ft

Curb Weight: 498 lbs

Takes bulletproof performance engine from the superbike side and makes it into a sport-touring friendly, happy-to-cruise-for-ages touring engine that can still wake up the sporty side if you crank on some throttle.

The SIRS system keeps the bike always in the optimum riding setup depending on the selected ride mode. Intelligent traction control is also top notch, preventing rear wheel spin ups and skids on slippery stuff faster than you could close the throttle.

2023 Kawasaki Ninja 650

A supremely comfortable and capable sport tourer for the newer or even beginner rider

tour sport motoren

This pick started a bit of a debate among the editors and writers here at webBikeWorld. There were discussions about which Kawasaki deserved the place... the ultra-powerful touring cruise missile, the H2 SX SE ? The long-serving Ninja 1000 SX ? After all the facts were laid down, we picked the Ninja 650 .

The primary reason we picked it came down to just how approachable it is. While many of us are intermediate to veteran skill riders, we all need to remember that there are new riders out there, almost every day, that are looking at a first or second bike. The Ninja 650 has the power, agility, and responsiveness to plant a huge grin on your face, but it is also extremely capable of just cruising along a coastal highway or up a mountain road, letting the new rider experience what sport touring is all about.

Being a Kawasaki, the other half of the decision was that absolutely everything including the faucet attached to the kitchen sink is jammed into the Ninja 650, and then the bike is put on sale at a ludicrously affordable price. Dual zone ABS, cornering ABS, traction control, stability control, bluetooth connectivity, riding modes, a saddke with an amazingly comfortable amount of plushiness, and mid-rear pegs for if you want to get your lean on, but don't cramp your legs up like a supersport would.

It's all there, for the beginner and the veteran, to just go out and ride . And that's the point of it all, isn't it?

Price: $7,999

Engine: 649cc parallel twin

Power: 68 HP

Torque: 47.2 lbs-ft

Curb Weight: 419 lbs

For beginner and veteran alike, one of the best sport tourers available. Comfortable, agile, competent, planted, and just a joy to ride, it's guaranteed to have you smiling every time you go touring on it

Jam packed of all the rider aids a beginner might want, and an experienced rider appreciates.

2023 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

All the power and fun KTM provides, with some hard luggage and a touring windscreen. Sounds good to us!

tour sport motoren

KTM's own marketing takes care of the byline for us: "The 1290 Super Duke GT is a comfortable ballistic missile," which is understandable as the 1290 Super Duke S and R are both very rapid when the right wrist is opened up. But, what would happen if it was tuned slightly more towards mid-throttle cruising, had a touring windshield installed, and given a set of hard luggage?

The answer is the 1290 Super Duke GT , KTM's only sport tourer, and it comes packed with all the goodies you'd expect from the Austrians. Electronic cruise control, heated grips, semi-active and electronically adjustable WP suspension, dual-zone and cornering ABS, 6-axis stability and traction control... it's all standard on the GT.

While the hard luggage is an additional cost, the mounting points are part of the frame and thus are standard as well, so pretty much any luggage will fit. It also, for a KTM at least, has a seat that can actually be called plush. Not soft, mind you, but thicker than the average plank of wood that KTM seats are known to feel like.

Of course, with the Duke as part of its name, it also comes with switchable rear ABS and traction control, should you wish to wag the tail a bit around a few corners.

Price: $19,799

Engine: 1,301cc V-twin

Power: 171 HP

Torque: 104 lbs-ft

Curb Weight: 496 lbs

A hooligan in a hiking jacket, it's pure KTM underneath the touring additions, so you know it's going to be fun as hell to ride

KTM is known for making superbly practical dirt and ADV bikes, and they've applied that same mindset of practicality to the GT, making it a very capable sport tourer

2023 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT specs, features, & pics

2023 Zero DSR/X

The first proper attempt at an electric sport tourer that can be ridden all day long from Zero, and it's pretty damned good

tour sport motoren

Put down the torches and pitchforks, dear readers, and let us explain this choice.

For years now, Zero has been putting out road and dual-sport bikes, and despite some controversies here and there, they have been successful enough to put the time and research into making an adventure tourer. The DSR/X is brand new for 2023, boasting the newest long distance battery pack and the newest DC motor, and is also the most powerful bike Zero has made in terms of sheer grunt at 166 lbs-ft of torque.

While other bikes in Zero's lineup will get 70, 80, sometimes 100 or 110 miles per charge, the DSR/X is rated for up to 180 miles per charge. It is marketed towards the ADV side of things, and it honestly can get off road and dirty, but if you really peer at it without any cynicism, it is set up for sport touring, with a little adventure sprinkled in.

We think that while it may not be perfect, and it already has competition in the form of the Energica Experia from Europe, it is definitely a step in the right direction towards convincing the world that electric sport tourers might just be a viable option in the near future.

Price: $19,995

Engine: Z-Force 75-10X brushless DC motor

Power: 100 HP equivalent

Torque: 166 lbs-ft

Transmission: Clutchless Direct Drive

Curb Weight: 544 lbs

Both a sport tourer and an ADV, it can do both with the flick of a setting button on the left button box

The longest range Zero motorcycle yet, and is also capable of supercharging at a Level 3 charge station to fill up in about an hour

2023 Zero DSR/X specs, features, & pics

2023 Honda NC750X DCT

An adventure tourer with the spirit of a sportbike inside, with the added bonus of an automatic transmission

tour sport motoren

The NC750X DCT is one of those sport adventure tourers that rides the razor's edge between a full ADV and a sport tourer. What tips it towards the touring side for us is simply the practicality that Honda have designed into the machine.

Firstly, there's the DCT, and it's the only option for this bike. Now, we know, not shifting your own gears can be considered heresy, but when you've been riding for 6 or 7 hours (and taking appropriate rest breaks!), would you really curse a transmission that handles all the gear changes for you, so you can focus on the road and riding? If you really want to shift your own, there are two toggle buttons on the handlebars as well.

The other aspect that makes it great for sport adventure touring is that the "tank" up top isn't really a tank... it's a storage cubby, which is large enough that it can just about fit a helmet in. The actual tank, a 3.8 gallon unit, is under the seat, behind the 745cc parallel twin with 58 HP and 51 lbs ft of torque. It also has built in mount points for side luggage that double as grab handles for the pillion.

As we said, Honda really thought through this bike to make it a great tourer.

Price: $9,399

Engine: 745cc parallel twin

Power: 58 HP

Torque: 51 lbs-ft

Transmission: 6 Speed Dual-Clutch Semi-Automatic

Curb Weight: 493 lbs

A practical, capable motorcycle that has all the amenities you need at a superb price point

Not really set up to be an ADV, as there is no bash plate, no hand guards or extra grippy pegs on the accessories list... it's meant for road going adventures, not dirt ones

2023 Honda NC750X specs, features, & pics

2023 Triumph Tiger 900 GT Pro

What happens when you take a good ADV and make it into a great sport adventure tourer

tour sport motoren

Triumph's Tiger lineup can be a bit packed, as there are so many variants and submodels that it can be hard to pick out your choice. For us, if we wanted a sport tourer, we'd choose the Tiger 900 GT Pro .

Firstly, it's the most feature packed of the bunch. It has Triumph's full suite of rider aids, including cornering ABS, traction control, shift assist, and a fully integrated TPMS. It also comes as standard with heated rider and pillion seats, so if you're touring up in the mountains, you can keep your legs and butt toasty warm.

It also comes with what Triumph have called the RSU, or Rear Suspension Unit, exclusive to the GT Pro. This is an electronically controlled, on-the-fly adjustable rear suspension that has four preload settings and nine damping settings, all done from the TFT and handlebars. So, if you need to pick up a passenger halfway through your ride, with just a few taps on the screen and a button press on the handlebar, it's set up to handle the added weight.

Yes, it might seem a bit pedantic, but after you've wrenched your rear preload a few times manually, it's the little things like that that make it worth the extra $2,000 over the regular Tiger 900 GT!

Price: $16,895

Engine: 888cc inline three

Power: 94 HP

Torque: 64 lbs-ft

Curb Weight: 427 lbs

Comes as standard with all the tech and amenities that are options on the Tiger 900 GT, including all the rider aids

Same capabilities as the Tiger 900 Rally, but designed with long-distance pavement tours in mind with a bit firmer suspension and bit softer of a saddel

2023 Triumph Tiger 900 GT / GT Pro secs, features, & pics

2023 Ducati Multistrada V2

Almost literally a Swiss Army Knife of a motorcycle, it just does everything

tour sport motoren

Ducati's flagship sport adventure tourer, the Multistrada V4 , could have taken this spot, but we chose its little brother, the Multistrada V2 , instead.

For the simple reason that while the smaller brother has all the same tech, gadgets, capabilities, and comfort of the big brother, it comes in for just under $10,000 less.

If you look at it from the angle of an adventure bike, you might miss the fact that while it does have that capability, the Multistrada's strength lies in its name. Multi = many, Strada = street. It is designed for, made for, and oriented towards grand touring, on "multiple streets" such as city roads, highways, motorways, interstate... you get the point.

And don't worry about being down on power, as the 937cc V-twin at the heart of the Multistrada thumps out 113 HP and 71 lbs-ft of torque, with the bike weighing in at a reasonable 445 lbs. It has optional hard luggage, but even if you don't buy them, the mount points are still part of the base bike, so if you ever want to take a longer road trip on the Ducati, you'll always have the option to add some panniers on.

Price: $18,895

Engine: 937cc V-twin

Power: 113 HP

Torque: 71 lbs-ft

Curb Weight: 445 lbs

Ducati's Swiss Army Knife bike. It goes everywhere, does everything, and does it all competently and confidently.

Its very name means "multiple streets," so if ever there was a bike designed to be a sport adventure tourer, this is it.

The Best Sport Touring Motorcycles of 2021

Source: Sergey Nemirovsky/Shutterstock

Sometimes, life demands that you make a choice between two things you love. Other times, though, you’ll be lucky enough to have the best of both worlds. If that’s the case, sport touring motorcycles might be for you.

A sport touring motorcycle combines the best features of a sport motorcycle and a touring motorcycle. It’s built for both the precise handling of a sport bike and the long-haul comfort of a touring bike. With that combination, these bikes are frankly such a good time that they should all come with a set of Bluetooth motorcycle helmet speakers that will allow you to voice a healthy “woo-hoo!” to your riding buddies through your motorcycle communication system . 

Ready to check out the best sport touring motorcycles of 2021? Here are five of the best. 

biker with helmet

Kawasaki H2 SX SE

If you’re looking for the technological and performance apex of the sport touring motorcycle style, the Kawasaki H2 SX SE might offer the glimpse of the sublime that you seek. This bike is another variant of the H2 hypersport, which is already a wildly powerful sport bike at the top of Kawasaki’s model range. But the SX SE takes it to a whole new level by incorporating elements of touring bike design into this pavement-burning chassis. 

Kawasaki has packed this bike with truly awesome touring features, including its proprietary Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension (KECS) for superior stability and an electronic cruise control to help you take it easy on a long ride. It’s the epitome of the fully loaded touring bike. 

Yamaha Tracer 9 GT

The “hypernaked” Yamaha MT-09 has won many hearts with its sleek good looks and badass performance, and the Yamaha Tracer 9 GT is a direct descendant of that much-loved form. It retains the stripped-down styling that characterizes the other models in the series while adding features that are sure to excite both sport and touring riders. 

The Tracer 9 GT’s lightweight aluminum frame helps make it among the lightest and most nimble sport tourers, and its Sport and Comfort modes help adjust the suspension style to road conditions. But none of this would matter without a great engine, which is why it’s a relief to see an 800cc liquid-cooled DOHC three-cylinder beast ready for action. 

BMW R1250RT

This European beauty puts the power of BMW’s signature boxer engine to work in a package that’s perfect for the adventurous rider. If you’re looking for something that can handle the long haul but is also a blast in the corners, the R1250RT is ready to be your adventure buddy. And thanks to the well-known reliability of BMW bikes, it likely will be for a long time.

BMW has also invested in a new Active Cruise Control system for this model, which gives riders the ability not just to set a speed but to set a following distance from the vehicle in front of them (as determined by radar). On top of that, it packs a massive 10-inch-plus TFT screen that can perform multiple functions at once, establishing this as one of the most technologically advanced tourers around. 

Our Motorcycle Bluetooth Headsets Keep Your Connection Strong

KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

One of the most common complaints about traditional bikes is their cumbersome weight. Those searching for something lighter as their highway companion might just fall in love when they see the KTM 1290 Super Duke GT . The Super Duke series is noted for the extreme lightweight designs that KTM uses to make their bikes accelerate faster and handle better, and the 1290 brings this to the world of sport tourers. 

For true touring superbike power, the Super Duke GT is the best rival to the Kawasaki H2 SX SE on this list. Its butt-kicking V-Twin knocks out 175 horsepower and makes other touring motorcycles look like toys, while still offering the comfort necessary for extended rides. That’s something truly worthy of the prestigious KTM name. 

Honda CTX700

If the Honda Gold Wing feels a little too much like driving your home office, the CTX700 might be just the svelte Honda tourer you’re seeking. It’s a true do-it-all motorcycle with a full-fairing sporty style and an extremely beginner-friendly design, thanks to its automatic transmission and anti-lock brake system. 

With only a 670cc engine, the CTX700 is the smallest-displacement motorcycle on our list by a considerable margin, but don’t let that fool you. It’s plenty sporty enough for enjoyable riding in whatever environs you find yourself in, and its low center of gravity makes it an exceptionally stable and comfortable ride.

Helmet Communication for Wherever You Are

Once you’re astride a touring motorcycle, the next order of business is naturally to find somewhere to go! See our European road trip planning guide if you fancy visiting the Continent, or check the motorcycle camping gear list if you’re headed to the backcountry. Wherever you’re going, don’t forget about the advantages that a motorcycle Bluetooth headset can offer for keeping you in touch with your pack and your world while you’re out on your adventure.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that conventional sports-tourers, bikes that blend sporting excitement with a degree of long-distance comfort and versatility, were no more – but you’d be wrong. While it’s true that mature, sophisticated all-rounders such as Honda’s lamented VFR750F V4, Suzuki’s RF900 and Yamaha’s FJ1200, which were the backbone of British motorcycling in the 1990s, have largely fallen by the wayside, while, to a large degree, the surging popularity of adventure bikes such as BMW’s R1250GS, which mix distance ability with decent equipment and day-to-day ability have filled the void.

In truth, though, the traditional sports-tourer has been making something of a comeback. BMW still has its classic RS boxer as recently as 2019, Kawasaki’s best-selling Ninja 1000SX continues to go from strength to strength, Suzuki has recently introduced its GSX-S1000GT and there are many more, too.

What we haven’t included here, though, are bargain all-rounders such as Honda’s CBR650F or Kawasaki’s Ninja 650 which are more ‘first big bikes’ than genuine sports-tourers, nor hyperbikes such as Suzuki’s Hayabusa which emphasise speed over true versatility. But don’t worry, there’s still plenty of choice – so much in fact that we decided to help by picking – in ascending price order – our 10 of the best.

Top 10 Ten Sports Tourers 2023_01

1. CFMoto 650 GT  | £6199

CFMoto’s family of smartly styled 650, 400 and 250 twins and singles are proof that Chinese-built bikes are finally coming of age. The CFMoto 650 GT its range-topper and, although still built down to a price and undeniably a budget offering, it’s also a reasonable performer and a great, entry-level sports-tourer. With 60bhp from its ER-6-alike parallel twin, performance is adequate rather than inspiring but there’s two power modes, it handles reasonably enough, has a plush ride, adjustable screen, LED lights, two power points and more. The panniers, however, are extra. But for just over £6K it is a genuine sports-tourer and a decent introduction to the breed.

  • Engine: 650cc, l/c, parallel twin
  • Power: 60bhp
  • Kerb weight: 212kg
  • Fuel capacity: 19 litres
  • Adjustable seat/screen: N/Y
  • Luggage options: Y

Top 10 Ten Sports Tourers 2023_02

2. Triumph Tiger Sport 660 | £8945

‘Adventure sport’ all-rounder was launched last year based on the Hinckley firm’s new, entry-level 660 Trident and has proved a brilliant best seller. Although adventure-styled, the Triumph Tiger Sport 660 has 17-inch road wheels and tyres and its upright posture, roomy comfort, faired comfort makes it more a sports-tourer in the Yamaha Tracer/BMW F900XR mould than any sort of true adventure offering. The 80bhp three-cylinder engine is perky, meaty and characterful, handling it typically excellent Triumph and its versatility, broad appeal and sub-£9K value make it a sure-fire winner. As an entry-level, affordable, British all-rounder you won’t go wrong.

  • Engine: 660cc, l/c, transverse triple
  • Power: 80bhp
  • Kerb weight: 206kg
  • Fuel capacity: 17.2 litres
  • Adjustable seat/screen?: N/Y

Top 10 Ten Sports Tourers 2023_03

3. Yamaha Tracer 7 GT | £9710

Yamaha’s Tracer duo, in 689cc twin cylinder form and bigger brother, 889cc three-cylinder trim, have been Europe-wide best-sellers for their combination of value, versatility and fun ever since the first MT-09 Tracer was introduced as a spin-off of the MT-09 roadster in 2015. The Tracer 700 followed in 2016 with 74bhp, easy versatility and a punchy and fun power delivery, was face-lifted and improved for 2020, renamed as simply the Tracer 7 and made Euro5 compliant and has now been updated again with new 5-inch TFT dash, forks and brakes. The base version costs a still temptingly affordable £8810. Better still, however, for serious sport-touring types is the up-specced GT version comes with 20-litre panniers, high version of the adjustable screen and comfort seat. Larger riders or those riding two-up over long distances may prefer something more substantial, but the Tracer 7 GT is affordable, unintimidating, versatile, great fun and well-equipped, too.

  • Engine: 689cc, l/c, parallel twin
  • Power: 74bhp
  • Kerb weight: 196kg
  • Fuel capacity: 17 litres

Top 10 Ten Sports Tourers 2023_04

4. BMW F 900 XR | from £10,350

Introduced in 2020, BMW’s new ‘adventure sports’ version of its middleweight F-series, parallel twin platform has proved a surprise star as a Yamaha Tracer-style sport-tourer/all-rounder. Inspired by BMW’s larger, four-cylinder S1000XR, the F900XR has a similar, upright, adventure sports posture but with a revised and enlarged F series parallel twin producing a respectable 104bhp. Its upright gait is comfortable, its handling engaging and versatile. There’s a brilliantly adjustable screen, enough comfort and quality to make distances easy and also enough equipment, such as riding modes, to cosset – yet all for a temptingly low (for a BMW) price. And if all that isn’t enough, being a BMW also means it’s easy to load it up with extras, luggage and gizmos to make it as much of a sports tourer as you want.

  • Engine: 895cc, l/c, parallel twin
  • Power: 104bhp
  • Kerb weight: 219kg
  • Fuel capacity: 15.5 litres
  • Adjustable seat/screen?: Y/Y

Top 10 Ten Sports Tourers 2023_05

5. Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX | £12,349

A UK best-seller due to its combination of versatility, fun and impressive value ever since its original introduction into the UK in 2010, the Ninja 1000 SX, on face value, is ‘only’ a Z1000 super naked with the addition of a fairing. In reality though, and partly due to a series of significant updates since, it’s so much more than that. The base, four-cylinder, 140bhp rolling chassis is lively and fun; comfort and practicality due to the adjustable screen and slightly more upright riding position is good, and, although no longer quite the bargain it once was, it remains brilliant value. Most recently updated for Euro5 and now called the Ninja 1000 SX (the ‘Z’ prefix is now reserved for Kawasaki’s roadsters) means it’s just as good as ever – although Suzuki’s new GSX-S1000GT runs it close.

  • Engine: 1043cc, l/c, transverse four
  • Power: 140bhp
  • Kerb weight: 235kg

Top 10 Ten Sports Tourers 2023_06

6. Suzuki GSX-S1000GT | £12,499

When Suzuki launched its fully updated and facelifted GSX-S1000 affordable super-naked in 2021, which wowed with its all-round ability and c.£11K price, it was suggested then that, as with the preceding model, a faired, sport-tourer version would soon follow. Sure enough, the GSX-S1000GT, based on the same sure-footed, well-suspended and Brembo-braked chassis plus old but effective long-stroke, 150bhp 2005 GSX-R1000K5 engine, arrived last year and quickly proved to be not just a striking looking and effective sports-tourer but also one of the UK’s most popular bikes, largely due to its affordable price, and a best seller in the sports-tourer category. All of that remains true today, although it price has climbed slightly meaning it no longer undercuts its closest rival: Kawasaki’s similar and well-proven and effective Ninja 1000 SX. Although the Suzuki can’t quite match the Kawasaki’s refinement and spec levels (its screen is non-adjustable, for examples) it beats it on power and sporting attitude. The ‘+’ version, meanwhile, comes with panniers and more as standard for £1100 more.

  • Engine: 999cc, l/c, transverse four
  • Power: 150bhp
  • Kerb weight: 226kg
  • Adjustable seat/screen?: N/N

Top 10 Ten Sports Tourers 2023_07

7. Yamaha Tracer 9 GT | from £13,110

As with its little brother, the Tracer 7/700, the Tracer 9, which was originally called the Tracer 900, is one of the most popular sports-tourers around. It dates back to Yamaha’s MT-09 three-cylinder roadster of 2013, which was such a success for its purity, fun and value it spawned the more roomy, half-faired MT-09 Tracer sports-tourer in 2015. That bike immediately became a Europe-wide best seller for the comfort and versatility it added to the base package. It was joined by the first GT version in 2018 which gained fully adjustable suspension, TFT screen, heated grips, quick-shifter, cruise control and panniers along with improved bodywork to go with the same sweet handling, lively yet unintimidating 115bhp triple and decent value. For 2021 it was significantly updated again with new styling, reworked, slightly larger, Euro5-compliant engine and semi-active suspension and now for 2023 it’s been improved further with the addition of the GT+ version with a big 7in TFT dash, adaptive cruise control and more, although that version now costs nearly £15K.

  • Engine: 890cc, l/c, transverse triple
  • Power: 119bhp
  • Kerb weight: 223kg
  • Fuel capacity: 18.7 litres

Top 10 Ten Sports Tourers 2023_08

8. BMW R 1250 RS | from £13,140

Legions of BMW boxer fans had been yearning for a capable, new RS (BM’s sports-tourer designation, highlighted by the original R 100 RS of 1976-1989) for years, especially since the preceding R 1100/1150 RS (1993), R 1200 ST (2005) and R1200S (2006) all failed to quite hit the mark. Finally, in 2015, and based around the German firm’s latest, liquid-cooled, 125bhp twin, it delivered. That first R 1200 RS was basically a R1200R roadster with a half-fairing and tweaked ergonomics yet succeeded by being much more than just the sum of its parts with real-world ‘go’ fine handling, lashings of comfort and plenty of touring practicality and accessories. In 2019 it was made even better still with the significantly uprated R 1250 RS which got the new ‘ShiftCam’ 1250 engine with a sportier 134bhp, slick new TFT dash and uprated styling including an adjustable screen. The base bike is now a brilliant all-round road machine. Load it up with BMW accessories such as panniers, heated grips and electronically adjustable (ESA) suspension and it’s arguably the perfect road bike.

  • Engine: 1254cc, l/c, boxer twin
  • Power: 134bhp
  • Kerb weight: 236kg
  • Fuel capacity: 18 litres

Top 10 Ten Sports Tourers 2023_09

9. Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello | from £13,500

It’s been a long time since Italian legends Moto Guzzi produced any bike that was truly modern and competitive with the best from Europe and Japan but the all-new V100 Mandello is exactly that, while retaining Guzzi signatures of a transverse V-twin motor and shaft drive and also happens to be a brilliant sports-tourer. Launched to coincide with the marque’s 100’s anniversary in 2021 (although delayed a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic), the V100 boasts not only an all-new, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected V-twin with a competitive 113bhp and the latest electronic riding aids (including adaptive winglets!) but delivers a comfortable, upright, sports-tourer riding position, engaging, sure-footed handling and lots of premium touches. Two versions are available: the standard V100 Mandello starting at £13,500 and the upspecced V100 Mandello S from £15,750 with Ohlins semi-active suspension and more premium finishes and components. Both are the most capable, modern, versatile Guzzis in decades, and also great sports-tourers.

  • Engine: 1042cc, l/c, transverse V- twin
  • Power: 113bhp
  • Kerb weight: 233kg
  • Fuel capacity: 17.5 litres

Top 10 Ten Sports Tourers 2023_10

10. KTM 1290 Super Duke GT | £18,799

Like the Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX (and even Suzuki’s GSX-S1000GT), the Super Duke GT is really a sports-tourer created out of bolting a fairing onto a super naked – in this case KTM’s completely nutty 1290 Super Duke. Being a KTM, however, things aren’t so simple, with the hooligan Austrian firm effectively throwing everything bar the kitchen sink at it in terms of spec, boosting the power to 173bhp and producing, as a result, the lariest, most high tech, hooliganistic sports-tourer around. Yet it’s also one of the best – especially since its 2019 update. Handling, performance and sophistication is second to none and glistens with WP semi-active suspension, class-leading rider aids, rider modes, cornering ABS and more. Yet although there’s only a small fairing/screen and room for small-ish panniers, it’s also surprisingly comfortable, practical and versatile. It might lack the quieter class and sumptuous luxury of some sports-tourers, but if you want to travel in the most dynamic, thrill-laden way possible, this is the one.

  • Engine: 1301cc, l/c, V-twin
  • Power: 172bhp
  • Kerb weight: 205kg
  • Fuel capacity: 23 litres

Best used sports tourers

Fancy a used option? Here’s our five of the best:

2015-current BMW S1000XR, £8,000-£14,500

165bhp four-cylinder adventure sport is great, tall all-rounder

2015-current MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800, £7000-£14,000

Luxury, exotic, expensive Tracer-style triple makes more sense used

2017-current Ducati Multistrada 950/V2, £7,000-£15,000

Smaller, street-orientated, V-twin ‘Multi’ is a tempting used buy

2017-current Ducati Supersport, £8,000-£13,000

Arguably more sports than touring, but still a decent Ducati all-rounder

2018-current Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX, £11,000-21,000

197bhp supercharged wonder is the best of Kawa’s blower bikes

Cover up to Six Bikes on one Multi Bike insurance policy

We understand that you can only ride one bike at a time, regardless of how many motorcycles you have in your garage. It’s not uncommon for motorcyclists to own more than one bike. A practical machine for commuting, something sporty for weekend thrills and an adventure bike and a nostalgic classic or two as well.

A collection of motorbikes presents a challenge to insurers; our job is to make sure you have the right cover for each bike at our best possible price, but we think Bennetts’ multi-bike insurance does just that because as a motorcycle insurance specialist with BikeSocial, our team of in-house biking experts, we believe that Bennetts knows biking better.

Bennetts multi-bike insurance can cover up-to six bikes on one policy, is Defaqto 5-star rated and comes with free BikeSocial Membership when you buy insurance directly.

Best Sport-Touring Motorcycle of 2020: Ducati Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour

best sport touring motorcycle of 2020

There are Sport-Tourers, and then there are Sport-Tourers . The Ducati Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour is the latter, a cut above the rest. It checks all the boxes: stonking engine, state-of-the-art electronics, great suspension and brakes, decent-but-not-isolating weather protection, and included cargo-carrying capacity. Every time I ride the Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour, I think how retirement is a long seven years away and wouldn’t I rather just pack my bits and bobs onto the back of this bike and head for parts unplanned?

2020 Ducati Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour Review

Perhaps, the song of the engine is to blame. As I said in my review, “The Testastretta 1262cc DVT (Desmodromic Variable Timing) is an engine seemingly without weak points. First, the DVT massages the bottom end torque for more grunt down low.…At higher rpm, the valve timing changes to benefit the increased volume of combustibles that need to be moved into and out of the twin cylinders.” The result is an engine that puts out a MO tested 89.0 lb-ft at 7800 rpm and 143.5 hp at 9,800 rpm, but perhaps most importantly, more than 80% of those pound-feet are available from 3,500 rpm. At all rpm, the throttle transitions are buttery smooth, particularly in Touring mode.

Next, the S after the 1260 in the name means (among other things) that this bike utilizes the Ducati Skyhook Suspension, which ties the semi-active suspension performance to the available ride modes. The result is a firmer ride in Sport mode and a more comfortable one in less exciting environments. Braking comes courtesy of Brembo M50s gripping 330mm discs – impressive stuff. Naturally, the power delivery and braking are controlled via a Bosch IMU linked to Ducati’s Cornering ABS and Electronic Combined Braking System.

Touring amenities are commensurate with that of a sport-tourer. You get Burns-approved cruise control and heated grips. It also sports a tire pressure monitoring system, keyless starting and fuel tank access, and LED spotlights. Weather protection offers an ideal compromise between enough protection to help you rack up the miles without compromising coolness on warm days. The TFT instrumentation is as good as any Ducati’s.

But wait, there’s more! The Grand Tour package includes a pair of saddlebags, which, although they aren’t electronically controlled like the ignition, make moving from bike to B & B much easier. The exclusive colorway, Sandstone Grey, with a 1260 graphic on the fairing sets you apart from the rest of the Multistrada 1260 masses. The rider and passenger seats feature Grand Tour logos, too.

While some may decry the fact that the Ducati Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour carries a $23,295 MSRP, that doesn’t take away from the fact that the bike offers an impressive riding experience that befits its premium price tag. For those who are looking for a less expensive alternative, take a look at the runner-up.

Best Sport-Touring Motorcycle of 2020 Runner-Up: Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX

best sport touring motorcycle of 2020

While the rest of the Japanese OEMs seem to largely be taking a breather these last few years, Kawasaki has been busy slaying it, as reflected in this year’s MOBOs. Even more significantly, they’re slaying it in an everyman sort of a way, building motorcycles real people can afford. Things like the H2 are a bit impractical and expensive, but then the green men turn around and trickle the supercharger tech down to the Z H2 , for just $17.5k.

The Kawi Z900 we already named as Runner-Up in the Best Standard division (and for $8,999 it coulda been a contender as Best Value, too). And new for 2020 is this rejiggered Ninja 1000SX . “Where else,” we waxed editorially back in August, “are you gonna get a highly capable, 124-hp sporty sport-tourer, with cruise control and a quickshifter, for $12,399?”

2020 Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX Review – First Ride

That’s around $10k less than what you’re gonna dish out for the Ducati Multistrada that won this category. Kawasaki did raise the price over the 2019 model $200, but they also did things while they were adding ride-by-wire to the 1043 cc inline Four to reduce the vibrations we used to complain about. On the Brasfield vibrometer , engine buzz is now non-objectionable, when it’s even noticeable, and the revised engine runs smoother and cleaner than any previous one, with outstanding throttle response under all applications. And makes 124 rear-wheel horses in the process. It’s steamy.

Revised suspension is not electronic, but it does soak up bumps better than ever, thanks to the addition of a low-speed slit the engineers added to the damping pistons in the fork. A hydraulic adjuster knob out back lets you reach down with your right hand on the fly to adjust rear preload. Would you expect a six-axis Bosch IMU and the latest rider aids for that price? You’re getting them anyway: In Sport mode, you can feel free to brake deeper into corners and get on the gas earlier as you attempt to achieve higher numbers on the lean-angle indicator in the new, 4.3-inch TFT display – just like the one we saw first on the $25,000 H2 SX SE two years ago.

They definitely left the Ninj in Ninja, but this one’s still plenty comfortable for sport-touring – especially now with standard cruise control. Right, the hard bags are optional, but for another $900 or so, you’re looking at a platform that’ll scratch pretty much every motorcycling itch you’ll ever have, including commuting and runs to the Piggly-Wiggly for supplies. Kawasaki: the Aprilia of Japan.

Kawasaki 1000SX a sport touring motorcycle? Where is the bags? Chain drive?I thought Kawasaki had the sport touring category covered with Kawasaki Concours which comes with bags and a shaft drive. In order to meet the criteria of a sport touring motorcycle the bike must have some elements of touring in it. The Kawasaki 1000 SX has very little touring genes. The 1000SX maybe a Great motorcycle but it's not in the sport touring category.

Stuki Moi

It's got bags. At least one version of it does. It's got long-day(s) ergos. And cruise control. And a shifting-optional engine. And wind protection. And enough alternator to power electrics.....

The Connie/FJR/RT/ST are tourers. Fast, express, tourers, for sure; but too big to naturally play the "sport" part.

Speedy and supple: It's MCN's best sports tourer motorcycles of 2023

Kawasaki have been left to fly the sports tourer flag alone in recent times, as adventure-style bikes have become the new allrounders and the £12,349 Ninja 1000SX has been the only choice for those who want a low, long, road bike-shaped way to enjoy big, sporty miles.

Best sports tourers: Kawasaki Ninja Z1000SX vs Suzuki GSX-S1000GT

Best sports tourers of 2023: 

  • Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX
  • Suzuki GSX-S1000GT
  • BMW R1250RS
  • Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello

BMW have the R1250RS, of course, and we pitched it against the Kawasaki around our old MCN250 in 2019. The German was the more characterful of the two, but it doesn’t have the same kind of mass appeal as the SX. It’s more expensive, too, especially when you start ticking options boxes.

Best sports tourers: Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX vs Suzuki GSX-S1000GT on the road together

Kawasaki’s SX has been around since 2011 and is quite rightly their biggest UK seller. Then called the Z1000SX, it was basically a Z1000 super-naked with added wind protection and comfort, but it also ticked the ‘sports’ box with a strong 138bhp, 1043cc inline four, radial brakes, quad exhaust cans and adjustable suspension.

In 2014 it got beefier Tokico calipers and uprated suspension and in 2017 was facelifted with added lean-sensitive rider aids, chassis tweaks and minor engine mods (check out MCN’s online reviews for the full lowdown).

Fast-forward and we have the Ninja 1000SX you see here with sharper steering geometry, superb Bridgestone S22 sports-touring tyres , an up/down quickshifter, colour TFT, cruise control, modes, a plusher seat, new exhaust and mapping to deliver a claimed 140bhp.

What are these sports tourers like on the road?

Our MCN250 B-road and motorway loops let the Kawasaki shine, even in the gloom of a frosty January day. It’s a genuinely exciting sportsbike when you want it to be, thanks to the easy grunt and turbine-smooth urgency of its bigcube engine and it flows through corners beautifully.

Its S22 tyres are grippy, even on cold tarmac, steering is direct, high-speed stability is excellent and the brakes are powerful.

Who needs a ZX-10R when the 1000SX is this good?

Spending all day on the Kawasaki isn’t a chore, either. Despite looking like a sportsbike and having relatively high pegs, it’s genuinely comfortable, even for a six-footer like me with battle-scarred joints.

With its sleek aerodynamics, wind noise is significantly lower than a ‘tall-rounder’, too, which is quite literally music to my ears. I spent time on a Yamaha Tracer 9 GT before this test and the racket it makes from its upright screen at motorway speeds borders on the offensive.

Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX clocks

The Ninja’s screen is two-way adjustable and a remote rear preload adjuster knob makes carrying pillions easy. Our bike is the Ninja 1000SX Performance Tourer edition, costing an extra £2300 with niceties like a carbon Akrapovic can, crash protection, pillion seat cover, tank pad and touring items such as heated grips, panniers and a taller screen.

But for 2023, the Kawasaki gets its first proper competition and it’s clear Suzuki are after a slice of the action with the new £12,499 GSX-S1000GT (in February 2023).

The two are remarkably similar, even down to the price, give or take, and it’s also powered by a gutsy inline four pictured below, this time derived from the GSX-R1000K5. It makes slightly more power than the Kawasaki (150bhp v 140bhp), but being fractionally smaller (999cc) it has slightly less torque: 78lb.ft v 82lb.ft. It’s also lighter, to the tune of 9kg.

Suzuki GSX-S1000GT engine

Given the engine’s history, you won’t be surprised to learn the GT is the racier of the two. It has a raspier exhaust note and despite having a beautifully wide spread of power and perfect fuelling when you pick up the throttle, the motor has a rawness which will appeal to those who like a bit of zing from their sports tourer.

Being lighter and more powerful than the SX, the GT will be the more sprightly of the pair on hot tarmac, but for normal riding the Kawasaki’s engine is calmer and more refined.

You’re often reaching for an elusive seventh cog on the Suzuki, where the Kawasaki’s gearing is perfectly judged for more relaxed riding, revving at 4400rpm @70mph in top, 500rpm lower than the GT.

The GT’s slightly more frantic nature is something you notice after jumping off the Kawasaki with its extra cubes and peak torque, made 1250rpm further down the revs. But in isolation the Suzuki’s engine perfectly suits life in its sports touring clothes and as we discovered at its launch last year, the good stuff keeps on coming.

Suzuki GSX-S1000GT with a pillion

Its gearbox and up/down shifter are slick, it has a handy cruise control, a bright and bold dash that links to your phone for satnav (absent on the Kawasaki) and it’s just as comfortable as the Kawasaki over distance.

Where the SX’s bars and tank are slim the GT is wider with higher, straighter bars, which will suit larger riders. It also has power modes, traction control and ABS, but they aren’t lean-sensitive.

Handling is as crisp as you’d expect but the suspension isn’t as plush as the Kawasaki’s and it runs on budget Dunlop Roadsport 2 rubber. Fitting latest-generation sports or sports touring rubber would make an immediate improvement.

The Suzuki stops as well as the Kawasaki, but there’s little feel through the lever, which takes away some of the enjoyment. It’s also lacking a couple of touring fundamentals. Like the SX there’s no centrestand and the low screen isn’t adjustable (a taller accessory version is available).

Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX cornering on the road

You’ll have to skin your knuckles with a C-spanner to adjust the rear preload for a pillion, too. Talking of pillions, we took our 22-year-old, 13.5 stone videographer on the back of the GT.

He was happy with its legroom, but he’d want a bigger seat for long distance. He didn’t try the SX as it was fitted with a single seat shroud.

Overall Suzuki’s GSX-S1000GT has all the makings of a go-to sports tourer to rival the SX, but the longestablished Kawasaki is just that bit more refined in every area. 

Best sports tourer verdict: Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX vs Suzuki GSX-S1000GT

Both the Kawasaki and new Suzuki do what traditional sports-tourers do best: neatly mix all-day comfort with headbanging performance. They’re affordable, well equipped, very fast and slip through the air almost silently compared to adventure-style all-rounders.

We saluted the GSX-S1000GT was when we rode it at its launch last year and here on the MCN250 it’s every bit as impressive. It’s easy to ride, roomy and – of the two – has the most raucous and powerful engine, so it’s every inch the GSX-R1000 you can go touring on. Of all the GSX-S1000 models produced since 2015, the new GT is easily the best.

But it doesn’t take many miles on the Kawasaki to realise what a class act it is. It’s more refined in every area: the engine is smoother, gearing more relaxed on the motorway, suspension plusher, tyres grippier, brakes more powerful and paint finishes deeper.

The adjustable screen and remote rear preload adjuster put the GT in the shade, too. Most of all, Kawasaki have had a decade to polish the SX to perfection – and it really shows.

Other sports tourers to consider

The Kawasaki and Suzuki along with the BMW R1250RS are the mainstream offerings in this market, with the Italian high-tech hero, the Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello pictured below the only other bike worthy of consideration from a sports-touring perspective. We’re putting that to the test on the MCN250 very soon…

There are also softer, less sporty rivals like the Yamaha Tracer 9 and the Honda NT1100 .

As a used buy, the obvious choice is Honda’s VFR800 – a much-loved model we were sad to see go off sale in 2021.

Nick Dunlap turns pro after becoming first amateur to win PGA Tour event in 33 years

tour sport motoren

University of Alabama golfer Nick Dunlap , after winning the American Express Tournament on Sunday to become the youngest amateur to win a PGA Tour event since 1910, announced he will turn pro at a news conference Thursday, and said he will make his pro debut at the AT&T Pro-Am.

The sophomore became the first amateur to win a PGA Tour tournament since Phil Mickelson in 1991 . With a sponsorship exemption, he finished an incredible 29-under par to win by one stroke. He shot a 2-under par 70 in his final round Sunday.

"If you had told me that I had the opportunity to live out my dream as a 20-year-old, it’s pretty surreal," Dunlap said. "But it’s also scary. There’s a lot of changes and (Alabama) coach (Jay) Seawell has been gracious enough and I’m gonna continue to live here and hang out with the guys and, and at least live out some of my college life the rest of this year.

"It’s an incredible opportunity and you know, very grateful for it."

At 20, he's also the youngest amateur to win a PGA Tour event since 1910. However, as an amateur, he wasn't able to take the tournament's cash prize of $1.5 million . With the victory, the Huntsville, Alabama, native and former U.S. Amateur champion made the biggest jump in the history of the Official World Golf Rankings, soaring from 4,129th to 68th.

When Mickelson won the Northern Telecom Open in 1991 as an amateur, he opted to remain at Arizona State until graduating in 1992.

Retired Alabama football coach Nick Saban called into The Golf Channel during Dunlap's Sunday push.

Report: outside group may begin massive pga tour investment as early as next week, share this article.

The future of professional golf remains uncertain, but according to a report , answers could be around the corner.

The Strategic Sports Group (SSG), an outside investment group headlined by Fenway Sports Group and comprised of several high-level U.S.-based sports owners, may begin its investment in the PGA Tour as early as next week, according to a Sportico report .

Back on June 6, 2023, the Tour announced a framework agreement with the DP World Tour and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund to create a for-profit golf entity known as PGA Tour Enterprises. Four months later, the PGA Tour’s policy board announced it had advanced discussions with the SSG and that it had not shut the door on the PIF.

ESPN previously reported anywhere from $3 billion to $7 billion may be in play, but Sportico claims the total money for the new entity will be less than the $3 billion figure. According to Sportico , the SSG investment will cover the Tour’s domestic rights. The PGA Tour has yet to respond to Golfweek for comment. A Tour representative told Sportico the information it reported was “incorrect” but did not elaborate further.

One could argue that bringing in outside investors is a way to make the deal more palatable given the U.S. government’s various questions. On the flip side, such a move might be seen as a way for the Tour to have its cake and eat it, too, by pushing the Saudis out after ending the litigation with the framework agreement. The former seems more realistic and would be a step towards reuniting the game, while the latter would be another pivot from the Tour that would only lead to more battles with LIV.

This year was supposed to usher in a new era of professional golf following the last two years that were chock-full of uncertainty. While plenty of questions remain, some answers may be near.

Top 10 sports tourers

Ten bikes that'll comfortably shrink a country in the blink of an eye​

Visordown's picture

Comfort and speed, with a dash of great handling are some of the ingredients that make up the perfect sports orientated tourer. Today's Top 10 is a breakdown of the best sports tourers that you can buy.

Sports-tourer buying advice.

With buyers of new sports-tourers migrating to adventure bikes, now’s the time to bag a versatile bargain:

  • These bikes tend to be well looked after by mature owners who service them. Steer clear of anything with any tasteless bolt-ons, small plates, loud pipes, small indicators or other rude boy modifications.
  • Some extras are worth having. Quality hard luggage and aftermarket suspension are particularly worthwhile as carrying capacity is handy and these bikes can do loads of miles heavily laden so original suspension can get tired. 
  • High mileage bikes are not uncommon and can be good value for money – if well maintained and that includes things like greasing the rear linkage, head bearings and looking after suspension. 
  • Buying privately can be worthwhile as you can check out the owner as well as the bike, pay less and these machines tend to hide less horrors than most. Do a data check. www.mycarcheck.com do an online one that includes motorbikes for £3.95. For that money it’s not worth travelling to view a bike without checking it first.

10. Yamaha Tracer 700

Yamaha Tracer 700

The Yamaha Tracer 700 shares much of its DNA with the MT-07, on which it's heavily based. That’s a good thing – it means the Tracer 700 is powered by that playful, torquey 689cc parallel-twin engine, which delivers exactly the punch you want once you’ve reached some hairpin-ridden European mountain roads. It’s also cheaper than a lot of its competition.

Much like the MT-07, the Tracer 700 could do with some firmer suspension, but its only really noticeable once you’re really shifting on a twisty road.

Engine: 689cc four-stroke liquid- cooled DOHC four-valve parallel-twin Power: 75hp at 9,000rpm Torque: 50.15lb/ft at 6,500rpm Weight: 196kg wet

9. KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

Engine: 1301cc V-twin Power: 173hp Torque: 106.2 lb/ft Weight: 205kg (dry) Top speed: 180mph  

This list wouldn't be complete without a coule of bikes that specialise in getting from A to B in a hurry, and the KTM 1290 Super Duke GT is the first.

There’s no denying the GT’s fire power and technology is complimented by a few additional tweaks such as an adjustable screen, padded seat and larger fuel tank to make it that bit better at going the distance. It’s got all the ingredients to make it the best sports tourer money can buy, and you’ll need a fair bit to own one because at nearly £16k, the 1290 Super Duke GT isn’t cheap, but if a fast, fun, mile-hungry machine is what you’re looking for, you probably won’t be disappointed.

8. Honda VFR800F

Honda VFR800

Once-upon-a-time it was the class leader and although that may no longer be the case, that doesn't exempt the VFR800 from this list. The most recent incarnation of the VFR800 is from 2014, when its changes included new suspension, a new sub-frame and exhaust plus heated grips and traction control.

Powered by a 782cc V-four, the VFR800 emits an addictive sounding howl when it’s revving hard and the VTEC is in full effect.

Engine: 782cc, 16-valve, liquid-cooled V4 Power: 105hp Torque: 53.3 lb/ft  Weight: 242kg

Leaning more towards touring than sport, the Sprint GT comes equipped with massive panniers, offering 62 litres of luggage capacity as standard. It’s also got a gel seat plus a huge fairing and a 200-mile tank range. Its single-sided swing-arm gives it a long, 1537mm wheelbase, and the steering can feel heavy but the kickback is good high-speed stability.

Engine: 1050cc, 12-valve, fuel-injected triple Power: 123bhp Torque: 75 lb/ft Weight: 210kg

6. Ducati Multistrada 1200/S

Ducati Multistrada 1200

It may look more like an adventure bike than anything else on this list, but we like to think of the Multistrada as a sports tourer on stilts. Why? It’s versatile, and a slick blend of comfort, 160hp V-twin performance and superb handling. Thanks to good wind protection and niceties like a power socket and cruise control, the Ducati Multistrada is firmly in your corner when it comes to covering distance – which it’ll do briskly thanks to the effortless way it gathers speed.

The latest incarnation is packed with more technology than ever and is one of the most refined, capable and fine handling bikes in this list thanks to its semi-active suspension, an inertial measurement unit, traction control, cornering ABS and four riding modes.

Engine: 1198cc V-twin Power: 160hp Torque: 100.3 lb/ft Weight: 232kg / 235kg (S)

Top 10 sports tourers

The Hayabusa was top dog for speed and power for years. But it’s a capable, comfortable super sports-tourer too. Gargantuan midrange power, superior handling and more miserly fuel consumption beat the Blackbird but build quality and brakes aren’t so good, plus the Suzuki won’t accommodate a pillion or luggage as well. Reliability’s excellent although aluminium subframes can cause problems (a steel replacement’s available) and there’s the odd gearbox gremlin. An all-new model replaced it in 2007 with even more power and torque but more weight too, and a few revisions in 2012 updated it further, althought in truth, it's still very similar to the original 1999 bike. Still not pretty.

2. Kawasaki ZZR1400

Kawasaki ZZR1400

More of a hyper tourer than a sports tourer, the ZZR1400 has 200hp on tap and is severely fast. The 1441cc inline four-cylinder engine effortlessly accumulates speed, making the ZZR1400 difficult not to ride everywhere at Mach 3. Thankfully it’s also got traction control and riding modes to help keep things in check when things are becoming rapid.

The ZZR1400 might be a big girl but she handles – better than you might think it has any right to and on track there’s no doubt you’d have a lot of fun hunting down sportsbikes...

… But this is a machine made for rapidly devouring the miles and it’s well equipped to do that thanks to a roomy ride position that doesn’t destroy wrists and a large but firm seat.

Engine: 1441cc, 16-valve, DOHC inline four-cylinder Power: 200hp Torque: 103.8 lb/ft Weight: 269kg

1. Yamaha FJR1300

Yamaha FJR1300

Powered by a 1298cc inline-four, the engine is flexible and bestowed with a smooth spread of torque.

It’s big, but it handles well and will get cranked over more thank you might expect before things start grounding out. The FJR is rounded off with good brakes, LED lights, a sipper clutch and electronically adjustable suspension.

Panniers take care of luggage needs and are easy to remove, and the heated grips and cruise control are exactly the sort of small but significant features that make the trip from Calais to Cannes that bit better.

Engine: 1298cc in-line four Power: 146.2hp Torque: 101.7 lb/ft Weight: 292kg (wet)

At KTM, a Sports Tourer is a motorcycle that lets you push as hard as you can, slide into corners, and blast out of them!

2024 Farmers Insurance Open: Live stream, watch online, TV schedule, channel, tee times, radio, golf coverage

It's a wednesday start and a saturday finish this week on the pga tour.

Farmers Insurance Open - Round Three

Everything gets moved up a day at the 2024 Farmers Insurance Open with an unorthodox schedule that begins Wednesday and ends Saturday. That means a quick turnaround for those traveling from Palm Springs to the cliffs of La Jolla outside San Diego, California. Through two rounds, some initial long shots like Nicolai Hojgaard have a chance to win with bigger names lurking further back in the field. 

Others in contention include Torrey Pines native, Xander Schauffele. The world No. 5 is the highest-ranked player in this field and joined by a number of his U.S. Ryder Cup teammates in Patrick Cantlay, Max Homa and Collin Morikawa, all of whom have their own ties to the Golden State.

California has been kind to each of them throughout their careers, but it is Homa who has the greatest love affair with his home state. A four-time winner in California, Homa aims to go back-to-back at Torrey Pines just as he did in Napa last season. The 33-year-old fended off a crowded leaderboard in 2023 and arrives riding nine straight top-15 finishes worldwide.

World No. 13 and last year's runner-up, Keegan Bradley, will tee it up at Torrey Pines once again and hopes to bounce back from a playoff defeat in his last start at the Sony Open. He is among many players with fond memories of the par 72, with Justin Rose and Tony Finau all experiencing long-term success at this venue.

All times Eastern; streaming start times approximated

20-year-old amateur golfer becomes PGA Tour champion but can't collect prize money

Nick Dunlap during the final round of The American Express at Pete Dye Stadium Course on Jan. 21, 2024 in La Quinta, Calif.

A 20-year-old amateur golfer became a PGA Tour champion Sunday.

Nick Dunlap, a University of Alabama sophomore, won The American Express tour, beating out Christiaan Bezuidenhout by one stroke and finishing the 72-hole tournament at 29-under-par 259.

But the champion won’t be able to collect any prize money despite becoming the first amateur to win a PGA Tour event since Phil Mickelson at the 1991 Northern Telecom Open, per the rules of amateur status .

The $1,512,000 prize will be given to Bezuidenhout, the only runner-up in the tour, as if Dunlap had not been in the field, a spokesperson for PGA Tour confirmed to NBC News.

A tearful Dunlap was seen hugging his family and friends following his historic win.

"I went over a scenario for today probably a million times and it's never going to go how you planned, and it didn't," Dunlap said. "I'm so happy to be standing here."

Comparisons have been drawn between the 20-year-old champion and Tiger Woods.

Dunlap is the second golfer in history to win both the U.S. Junior Amateur and U.S. Amateur titles after Woods. He's also the first reigning U.S. Amateur champ to win on the PGA Tour since Woods in 1996.

At 20 years and 29 days, Dunlap is now the youngest amateur to win on the PGA Tour since Chick Evans at the 1910 Western Open.

"It is so cool to be out here and experience this as an amateur," Dunlap said following his win.

"If you would have told me that, you know, come Wednesday night I'd have the putts to win this golf tournament, I wouldn't believe you," he said.
