Hi Guys,

I'm very sorry I didn't write anything new here, but i was very busy lately.

And in addition I couldn't get any new informations - so you didn't miss anything so far.

Now I found this:

http://www.motorradonline.de/motorra...gs-lc/414958#1

The article says "[...] the new water-boxer will be reveiled in october, at cologne's intermot [...]".
Just asked a friend of mine, who works for bmw's marketing department.
Waiting for a confirmation for this date.

Hope you didn't already know this, and I could tell you something new.

Ride on,
DasMatti

I'm not going to like having the big bag on the left side! often when I run into the store to get supplies(aka hoppy ales) I put her on the sidestand & throw my helmet in the right side full size panier. On return I take out the brain bucket & install tasty supplies. It would be awkward to do that on the left side

I made a little translation of the article hope it helps:

BMW offensive is going ahead

For this year BMW's modelprogramm hasn't changed much. This is what we could say if we only look at the motorcycle section. The C600 sport and C650GT had bound the capacity of development and industrialization of "real motorcycles" and for that reason new motorcycles couldn't appear in 2012.
After the newest Spyshot from MOTORRAD-Paparazzo one thing is clear: this will change during next and the comming years - and that drastically. 4 New models went infront of his camera and with them at least 2 models that will be modified (F800GS and F650GS). These fotos will be releaved in our magasine of the 4/2012 [...]

One of these models is the replacement of the R1200GS with the first watercolled engine, which presentation we are waiting for (expecting) during the next intermot.

Then they are talking about a new electro scooter blabla. And that they could reveal a half-naked S1000RR.

The exhaust of the 1250GS is oval (making it small) so that the footpegs of the 2nd rider will be fitting like the current model on the outside. But this of course on the other side, which is why the new cardan (final drive) is on the other side too.

They say that they have put a lot of plastic and colors everywhere to confuse people about the final disign and that changes are still probable. They also doubt that the engine guards will look like that because they are very wide and very outside the bike.


Hope my translation wasn't too bad and that this can help some of you :o).

Saw the new Motorrad magazine today, they are mentioning the 2013 "pure Boxer" using the air/oil cooled engine.

Another interesting Kraft sketch; but how's that not just a stylized R1200R? Or would that seem to be the point?

I think it's their move to provide some modern classics in their line up. Something which they have been criticised for. Triumph has done very well with the modern classic theme and as we all get older, (the average biker age is increasing) I'm sure there is a bigger market for these. I have to say its got my attention. I'd rather one of these than the new GS to be honest.

I think they'll keep the R1200R and make it simple (if you can really use that word with BMW) and put out the telelever thingy and maybe the paralever
