Interesting that they went back to a conventional USD fork, maybe having the radiator up there now complicated using the telelever?

That R1200R in the white/red looks fantastic.

cheers,

That RS might be the best looking modern boxer they've made to date!

I was surprised when I saw the images. That RS is a surprisingly good looking boxer.

See what happens when you don't use asymmetric headlights?

Edit:

More info here. Notably, they're abandoning telelever for the R and RS.

The RS looks fantastic. Looks to be a worthy successor to the R100RS and the R90 and R100S's with a proper seat and proper side cases.

Also wise that it is called R1200RS and not R1200ST.

I don't really like the new GS/GSA, but these are quite nice. I like the RS a lot. And thank goodness for conventional USD forks!!!

I am surprised that the new R1200RS does not come with cruise control.
Maybe they will add it the following year.

I'm liking the R1200RS in dark grey. And since no-one has posted a picture yet...

Add a nice little removable little passenger backrest and will be one heck of a sports tourer.
