The muffler looks a bit slimmer, hopefully the right saddlebag will have a smaller cutout. The LCD display in HFL gallery looks monochrome, not color as everyone expected. But the characters are larger to please old guys.

I like the position of the air box... deeper water crossings!

WTF? " Tyre/wheel dimensions of 120/70 R19 at front and 170/60 R17 at rear as a world first, tailored specially to the R 1200 GS."

Yes, the clutch now lives under the front cover!

The oil filter is on the left side. No more pulling a skid plate to get it.

No mention of being able to turn off the ABS.

Interesting. Liking the engine from what I see (low, appears very integrated), but the spiky bodywork and fenders make me wonder. Poseidon, your trident has inspired an entire motorcycle!

The weight bumped up a bit: 523 lbs ready to go vs 505 for the current version. Still not a big fan of the header tubes hugging the engine block. . .

I noticed that the Akrapovic can now comes supplied with a garish HP logo.



Does that mean we're going to see a range of HP2 bikes? I hope so.

No photoshop wizard but here is a comparison for ya'll



No, I don't care for the stupid winglet, beak, but these are easily fixed. I do think the new engine casing looks very well packaged and nicely finished in comparison.
