You should try Google on "radial brakes". Really not that difficult. First hit is probably all you want to know about brakes right now. Takes less time than creating the response you did

It does say the current mag contains an article about the new GS. The next new mag is out after Jan 4th or 5th, so I trust the article will be available online after that?
I'm a subscriber to the printed MOTORRAD magazine and I usually receive it in Canada a week after it's published in Germany. As a suscriber you get 2 downloads / month, usually PDF's or movie files. Don't like the Motorrad website, the free iPad apps is ok and you can download the complete magazine from there (and pay for it).
The current magazine (01/2012) has 3 or 4 full pages and the main article starts with the spy shot that's not been
made available online, a shot over 2 pages showing the GS from the side. A lovely shot but I'm afraid to scan it and show here, copyright Bernhard...

Well this does tell me that the gear´s are under the Cylinders, Like a High Tec Motor should be.
I hope they make it 7 speed.

Looks like a top of the Line GS is on its way.

Happy New Year to Italy Tagesk.

I think ultimately you loose the separate tranmission housing and oil volume, reduces the overall engine length and weight. The current GS engine block and transmission builds rather long and when you accelerate hard the front of the bike loses contact too easily for my liking so more weight in the front helps.

As much as i like Made in Germany
My German is not up to speed.
If the Motorrad boys would make a Nordic language or English it would be much better for me. Since not all have the German voice gen.

McFury who wanted to study German harder in school , But the girls won that one.

Mr. McFuryMcNugget.
I like this forum, so many nice and funny people here and so much combined knowledge, way more fun spending time here than reading a German motorcycle magazine in German.

Thanks - indeed the 1250GS/A picture was blurred out too. I take your German is ok. If not i can translate when the article is freely available on their website, respecting any copyrights.

544 with some accessories. My '05 with ABS, an aftermarket can, and full tank weighed 496 (I weighed it myself). BMW's advertised weight of 507 (with a full tank and NO options) was accurate in my case.

I think this is now certain. Getrag who used to produce the tranny for the "old" 1200GS is no longer a supplier for the 1250 GS, at least that's what I read here a while ago, now looking at the pictures confirms the integrated gearbox, but I'm no expert.
