The All New LIQUID COOLED R1200GS threadfest

Spanish magazine Solomoto has printed some spy pictures of a water cooled GS. It says it will be a 2012 model.

Rocker arms were gone with the last of the hexheads in 09 and replaced by camheads, no?

Not really rockers with the DOHC but rather followers as there is only one side that pivots and provides minimal leverage between cam and valve.

Maybe a 2012 in Europe, but could very well be a 2013 here if even that soon as they just did the DOHC last year.

Would you speculate that it's a dry or wet clutch?

Mr DELTATANGO once again as per earlier post, the "camhead" motor does NOT have rocker arms, may look like rocker arms but they are a pivoting shoe/lever/follower/shim retainer (take your pick). Have a closer look at the pics of it.

I can see what it is.

I bet you that it won't be on the next iteration.

It is a marketing thing.

I wish they would go ahead and just put 17" wheels on it. I bet even fewer people are ever going to take this beast offroad. At least allow everyone a better choice of rubber.

You really have nothing of value to add, do you?

I guess is finally helpful to know Espanol around here..

Here is a basic translation of the five points show on the right hand side of the picture.

1 Motor water cooled engine with the intake and exhaust located at the top and bottom of the cylinders.

2 radiator located above the televeler, hiding in between the plastics and the crash guards.

3 "Cardan" (final drive and shaft drive) located on the left hand side of the bike, totally backwards from the current 1200GS

4 Exhaust pipe with exit on the right hand side of the bike, with the cardan on the left is no space for the collector, take a look at the saddle bag.

5 Front modified with a new windscreen, plastics, crash guards, elevated front fender (I don't see it, but that is what they say) optics. Is very similar to the 1200GSA but different.

Ps: That is more or less what the side notes say..

I read #1 differently as in liquid refrigeration - not a spanish expert at all just doing literal translation.

typical tough to decipher spy pictures but at least the water cooled beast is closer than we think...

Can a better copy be provided or link to the article

Yes you are right, I just try to use "English" terms to convey the idea better, Me bad.
