The promised look.

For the promised lands.

Looks like a 800 with 1250 label.

It's an seriously awful thought that an inline engine could one day replace the boxer, only over my dead body!

A BMW 1200 parallel twin...? I guess they would call it the F1200GS "Super Bavarian Tenere" It would be much more narrow, they could give it a 270 firing order and...no, wait a minute! Yamaha already makes this for $5,000 less than a GS. With STANDARD spoke wheels, traction control, three power mode options, ABS, a better final drive, 26,000 mile valve adjustment intervals and a dealer 10 minutes from my house. LOL! I love my GS and my dealer (Morton's) but Yamaha is making is hard to be faithful!

Don't worry. Even if BMW abandoned the flat twin today, there would be enough aftermarket business, salvage yards and used parts suppliers to keep your GS going until my 6 year old son retires! Just look at the support airheads, Harleys, VW's and old musclecars enjoy nowadays. If you have enough money, you can build a new '65 Mustang with all new mail order parts!

I've read back about 6 pages in this thread and can't find any info on the new R1200GS coming out? I was wondering about some of the specs?

1. Horsepower?
2. Is it going to weigh more becuase it's watercooled?
3. Did they really move the tailpipe to the right side so now we have to buy completely new panniers?
4. Any pictures out besides that blurry one that was being tested in Spain?
5. When is it supposed to be released?
6. Price?

Sir,
You added post 973 to this thread.
The number of posts is, in general, inversely proportional to the amount of reliable information available.
When no more posts are added to this thread for, say, on month, then there will be loads of threads with content.
Such as discussions about panniers and the like.
