5. When is it supposed to be released? soon
6. Price? more of course... because they can

Such as discussions about panniers and the like.

Post 977. Nothing new to add.

NZRalphy...you sound bitter.
...and a wee bit spun up.
Time to switch to decaf.
The point is, they hold all the cards.
And will play them at their leisure.
Which is why, I too, need to switch to decaf.

There are some pics on the new liquid-cooled R1250GS on the German MOTORRAD magazine edition 1/2012 (23.12.2011). Sorry, I dont have any scanner...

The pic was pixeled in the hope that you buy the printed magazine, of course.

It is obviously a photo purposely leaked by BMW as is typical how they control the roll out and anticipation of a new entry.

Just my $.02 worth....

What's the meaning of the "LC" in the model name?

I think one of the more interesting aspects is now we have seen at least two references to it being designated a "1250". Das Matti mentioned 1250 once as well.

That picture is a real insult to the eye, no picture would have been better...I haven't seen the print copy yet...



The one published a while ago shows a lot more...
