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?
Mate! No mate! Not good play ground etiquette! Asking this is like que jumping. .....

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.

I think Das Matti is really the head of marketing for BMW motorcycles...

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...

Sir,
Sorry to repeat myself, but I did tell you two pages ago that nothing non-trivial is known about the next model.
There is nothing to be found here except entertainment.
Why that surprises you, or even makes you appear with a less than ideal attitude, I don't understand.

This thread now has 996 posts.
I hope you understand what that means.

Thank You Tommy Holly.

I did like the songs
Looks like it will be a while until they show the Water Head.
I did a quick look in the Europacorp chat forums and they say the same as ADV.
Some say horsepower is from a 1270 lc 128 horses and 14.5kgm thrust.
More have said they want 140-150 hp.
i think the bike will be 2013 model since the rally is sold as 2012 in Europa.

And Tommy its good to crash and let out feelings its good for you.

McFury who has been a little bored my self over the no news.
