I wonder about this. Last two BMW dealers I have visited have had scads of r1200gs/gsa's, f800/700gs bikes lying around, as well as used models. Maybe they're just bulking up for the spring rush, but I don't know. I'd love to know what the last quarter sales in 2012 were like (of all bikes). Of course, the big four dealers all have scads of sportbikes and metric cruisers, too.
I'm pretty glad I don't own a motorcycle dealership right now. I don't think there's any danger of the industry tanking, but I sure wouldn't want to have to guess what tomorrow's rider wants to buy.
