Really pushing this bike or really pushing this bike?

I think we are looking for the model that will break the record sales of the "original" 12GS.
Only reason not to, is world crisis.

Dean,

In CA the smog warranty on our cars covers pretty much everything emissions related until I think at least 80,000 miles or 8 years, IIRC. If bikes come under the same rules, (and the state is making noise about it) what do you see as the impact on warranties? Emissions stuff means if your car fails a smog check, its pretty likely its a warranty item. If you think about it, that covers a lot of stuff. Pretty much the whole fuel injection system, catalytic converter, oxygen sensor, and more. In essence, the engine better not be polluting above limits for the 8 years/80K miles.

I think all that adds about $150 to the price of a car. Wonder what it will do to the price of a bike?

Is there any emission testing done on bikes? Or did I never own one long enough to find out?

Not yet, but I would not be surprized to see it coming. I think 2013 is the last year we can alter exhaust pipes.

It's already in effect for all models build on or after Jan 1:

Is there a different 2013 R1200GS out there, with the exhaust pipe pointing forward, that weighs 525 lbs with a 720W alternator (things that drew my attention)?

Honestly, I haven't been paying attention to the new R1200GS as of late, and thought all 2013's were water cooled (to some degree).

Hi Patrick

Those pictures are of the previous model. The current R1200GS (water-cooled) is a completely new bike sharing no parts with the ones pictured.

Cheers

Ah, thanks for the clarification! I thought that "2013" was equal to "liquid cooled" ... so I do feel better now that I am not waiting for one of the new new ones!

In Europe there are emission tests for bikes, but only upon construction. The current norm is EU3 for bikes, and EU5 for cars. Diesel cars (in Belgium) need to pass an emissions test as from 4 years of age, petrol and bikes not (yes, there are diesel motorcycles).

It's really hard to say what extent of extra warranty cost is paid by the customers. In case of other products that require prolonged warranty (electronics etc.) there is no price difference.
You can easily count that. Over here 2 years is included, and 2 additional years can be bought for between 350 and 500 euro's.

I'm aware that nothing in this world is for free ;) But with the price of the bike here, few hundred euro up or down doesn't really matter. The bike is still incredibly expensive :P I have a stoic approach, I don't stress about things I cannot influence, and just take them as they come ;)
