LED running lights... adjustable screen... gas tank looks larger than on the 12GS, unless these are GS ADV.

The FD doesn't look quite finished. They had a similar one on the K1600GT in testing but the final version does not have a hole in the middle.

Nice find Rick!

Hopefully this isn't a slightly disguised version of the finished bike. It is kind of industrial looking, even for a BMW!

All that precious hole in the middle does is add the need for another seal, and provide another place to leak. I doubt if it is lighter.

Can't say that I like what I see, though they are development mules. It appears they have a lot in common with the Multistrada. Are they following that lead?

I can't be alone by saying I don't need a 140hp enduro / GS

I like it.

Only 2 things wrong with this.

The cast wheels / And small panniers.
The GS/GSA ? Hard to say ??????????? > GS.?
What i like already The BOXER ENGINE LOOKS WOW Looks 10 times better then i thought i would.
The adjustment Screen. The pillon grip Much better set up. . And the rear cargo plate looks Bigger And that i like.
The biggest Change in ergo are the Disk brakes front and rear appear to be bigger Thats good.
If you can judge a bike by the photo that is
The bike looks faster in service intervals.The only thought is the oil filter looks kinda low ? Any way for the lava rock in Iceland.
Made me a Happy Puppie so now i can Dance Away Over To The New Year.

I can wait for more info Now

The Fact that the new Motor Year is Mid Calender Year is that Mr Ford did send out the Ford Mustang 1964 1/2
In 1964 1/2
This became a big issue for the motor makers in the world and the time was set to this mid year date so they walk as one in the market department. So as i have said before the new bike will be in sale mid next summer im shure it will hit the USA as well at the same time.They have been testing the bike to the 250.000km range and the euro forums have been talking about its all good.

BMW is paralleling the evolution/devolution of the Jeep. Weep, but it's inevitable, just like the loss of a prehensile tail.

Where the hot air-stream from the radiator is to exit?

Sure Hope!

Thats a GSA. Kinda fat for my liking. If thats a GS, I'll be getting one of the new older ones.

New and much more revealing photos, what a great way to see the old year out !

And the wailing and moaning of the luddites is completely understandable, given the truly monumental design shift, of the boxer layout.

I wouldn't say its only the luddites with those sentiments. If those images are the GS in development, there is a marked departure from what the GS is now, to what those images show. Regardless of engine power and performance.

Radial dual disc brakes on the front tell me it's more of a roadbike than a Gelande/Strasse. The overall heft and weight (visually) look less 'Gelande' capable than the current model. However, it could be a well-camouflaged disguise. It could also be the GSA version with larger capacity for fuel.

Is it me, or are the Boxer 'jugs' higher up on the engine than the current model? In the first images (riders coming straight on), the right jug is lower than the left. Does anyone else see that, or is it me?

I like the removable passenger pegs. The windscreen looks like an afterthought, from a 'substance' perspective. How sturdy is it, and how well does it shield you?

The headers look tortured, really twisted coming out of the head.

Just initial comments, as I know this is either 1) a decoy, or 2) a disguised development mule and many things will yet be refined.

If this is the direction for the new GS, then it certainly will be more 'Strasse' than a balance of G/S.

Optical illusion, due to some greenery partially obscuring the left cylinder. If it were real, it would mean that they turned the crankshaft vertical...

Me thinks it's a GS, imho. Because of the intake coming into the top of the cylinder heads, the throttle bodies AND airbox are now in the tank area, not to mention the radiators. That doesn't leave a ton of room for fuel. They'll have to get very creative to fit a 9 gallon tank on the GSA; my guess is that the tank will be including the area where the airbox is on the current generation of GS's.

I'll bet this is closer to the finished product than we'd like to believe. Items like the fancy headlight, instrument panel, fork fairing, etc. would imply that this is -very- close to production.

Yes, the MultiStrada upped the ante and BMW is playing catch-up. Also, if you have a 130HP bike that can do 150MPH, you need improved aerodynamics which means it will probably look more like the Multi also.
