Awesome! I love the look and you wait until you see one on the road. It's going to be a very eye catching bike. I'm not about to give up my Multistrada but that's the first GS since the 1150ADV I've desired.

2013's are already in production with the 2012 build spec's and it'll be May '13 before these hit the USA shores is my bet, which means 2014 model year designation.
I bought my 2009 in Jan. 2010 because there were no 2010's yet.

Great pics RL. Thanks for posting them!

Great photos, thanks! As previously mentioned, a lot of good updates and improvements, such as:

-Wet clutch, accessible from front
-Higher air intakes for deeper water crossings
-Exhaust moved to right side of bike, leaving more space in the most-used left side pannier.

I'm not really digging the "spork" beak shape, however

Anyone else seeing a little of this from the front of the bike?



I'm sure it will look better in person. And this...



This is a hot mess right here: "No I don't want to see how much fuel is left, I just need to.. aw shit I've turned on my flashers.. could I just.. WHERE THE FUCK IS THE HIGH BEAM!?!?!!!"

Pretty sure the Adventure came out in 2006 and was white and had servo brakes.

oil sight glass on the right?

Side stand on the left and oil sight glass on the right can only mean two things:
-a sudden (and long overdue) pickup in business for the motor oil industry
-inflation of 'help, my boxer is burning oil!' threads

Assuming this thing still uses oil for the motor; or is it all water?

After seeing the some of the tech info I'm really interested to see how the adaptive suspension is gonna work off road!
Wethead!

As for all the complaining, I am not at all surprised. Afterall, we are BMW owners!

Aside from the front fender/beak, which I hope someone comes up with a good cover for like the Adv models, I think it looks good. Reminds me a bit of the new Triumph. So much so that I wonder if designers are in bed together. It looks heavy though. Any specs on operating weight yet?

I'm surprised there is no heated seat option. The Triumph explorer has the option. It shouldn't add any weight really. Oh well, not really a big deal. Maybe they thought it would be too candy ass for a GS.
