A fairing, or a revised "s" of somekind would be a must have for many, there is already a market, and the standard R is already a naked bike. The guys over at Pelican parts would go bananas. I...

How about we just bring back the r1200s?

I don;t see how this will be anything but a fad. The r1200s has a place!

This would sell worse than anything before it.

I wish they'd bring back the k12r sport.

Not too much plastic, just enough.

Too bad they canned it, I might still grab one, one day.

I love it, but

they can barely import enough r1200r's as it is. That never made sense to me. It's going to be a real niche bike, and probably hard to find a good deal on one. Same as the r1200r.

It doesnt have to be that way.

If the darien light hade a couple simple thigh vents, after all its not the full darien if you think that compromises water seal, and it flowed some air, it would be an all around winner.

Big difference between the two if you ask me.

r1200r fit me like no other bike. But for all practical purposes, the st wins. They are growing on me quickly, im just a bit too big. 6'3"
