1250? Are you sure it is a 1250 they tested? I was not aware they had upgraded the displacement from 1200 to 1250.
Either way; I'm not surpised the Triumph came out on top. BMW has really gone down hill since 2002. So much so, that I will not buy one newer than 2001. Now have my sights squarely on a new Trophy in spring of 2014 after they have proven themselves to writers and riders.
