It looks like the front tire size was previously used on the harley v-rod and I saw pilot roads in the rear size.
They look like street tires in the pics.
Interesting...

I see a viable aftermarket product in some kind of cowl or cover to replace those pointy radiator covers.

The addition of a slipper clutch is great. I have one on my 07, and would miss it.

Any word yet on final drive failures?

Well it's ugly, but I'll take one. There goes my 1000 dollar Russell day long. I lined it up axel nut to axel nut and triple tree To triple tree crudely on Photoshop and the seat looks to be a good 2 inches shorter than a gs low seat on the old model

What's with the "spork" on the front? The GS is starting to look like a Ducati Multistada

Specs look good but the bike not so much. The new KTM 1190 is looking better.

Looks like they ran out of room to put the 'all important' BMW logo.

That would be the FIRST thing to go to save weight.

Touratech's/Wunderlich's 'take' would probably be: We have a GUARD for that!
