Official Pricing Announced

Pricing press release yesterday was a little confusing. We decoded it as best we could, but you may want to bring some paper and pencil with you when you go to the dealer.

So, when deliveries start happening, will we start a new thread to separate conjecture and bloviating from actual experience


(and bloviating)?

Mine's coming soon

I expect mine in SoCal within three weeks if not sooner. I still don't know colors or options but they're getting four units — a demo, a low and two "normals" — which I must think will be fully optioned. I'm hoping for a red one with or without wire wheels, I don't care. I must have everything else. I do get the first one. Can't wait. I think my neighbor's taking my current GS, if not it'll go on consignment asap.

Yeap, he sent me a PM about that as well. A friend on the list just checked with our dealer today and no news about delivery date/bike options, etc.

$100 refundable? not exactly. With sales of the old GS declining substantially this year as everyone waits for the new, I would guess that the last few months have been pretty poor for most of them.

Actually BMW sales increase by 2% in 2012 compared to 2011 sales. December 2012 saw a 43.3% increase in deliveries compared to December 2011, pretty impressive. The R1200GS was the most popular model still (this does not include the GSA). Granted these are world-wide figures, but the USA was the 2nd largest market outside of Germany.

33 seems to be the magic number for Canada.

Wow, amazing. Of course none of those sales reflects deposits on the new WC GS. My opinion was coming from the fact that the same GSAs and Rallye GS have been on my dealer's showroom floor for months and I haven't seen any new camhead GS's there in awhile.
