Does anyone know or can predict when the GSA liquid cooled version will be available? Thanks in advance. Spook

Hell no, that would be a disaster in summer (even though summer seems so far away).

The pre-enjoyment of waiting should still be on your site

One to two years from now.

Hi Rich,
Thanks for the reply. The folks at Rox think the 2" risers would fit/work and the chap I spoke with said he'd sold some to new 2013 GS owners. So I was hoping someone would be on this forum.

you say that, and with all due respect, you are most likely correct... but in todays economy and uncertain future, ALL big Corp.'s are trying to make every buck they can. BMW KNOWS !!!! that the GSA is one of their best sellers. I would not be the least bit surprised if the GSA is available in the FALL2013, or Early Spring2014...jus sayin

Agree, I'd bet it's available for sale next spring.

I don't think they suck. They do an adequate job of keeping my hands warm at temperatures around zero C while wearing thick gloves. What more should i want.

We'll see.

I give 0% for Fall 2013 and 30% for Spring 2014.
Most likely Spring 2015.

BMW sales fantastically crisis or no crisis, competition or no competition.
They have a model that works and follow... for ever.

Spring 2014 or fall 2014 is my guess (as a MY 2015)

a) soft and smooth clutch. Lacks the old "sweet spot" from the dry clutch but that's not a bad thing. On low speed turns in dirt you can't "tickle" the cam effect cuz it's not there...it's completely progressive.
.
Can't quite decipher this. Is the new clutch easily modulated like the dry clutch? The tractor like power and perfect clutch action are the hallmark of what makes the GS so adept hooking up and negotiating technical terrain. Hope they didn't screw this up.

Thanks for your answer. I haven't been able to find the "optional remote" in the WebEPC (BMW Motorrad Electronic Parts Catalogue). The parts numbers for the anti-theft alarm for the new 1200GS LC (K50) and the alarm unit for the former 1200GS (K25) is NOT the same. In the catalogue it shows a remote unit for the former 1200GS (K25) but not for the new 1200GS LC (K50). I tend to believe that you will not be able to get a remote for the 1200GS LC (K50) anti-theft alarm system.

Max :-)

I don't think the clutch is going to be as much of an issue in technical terrain as is the touchy throttle....at least the one on the stripper bike I rode without ride modes.
