I am hoping they arent charging a separate line-item for delivery as BMW's MSRP includes that....

This has more to do with UK pricing than anything else. Take a piece of Microsoft software that is US $79, it is UK 79($128) but € 63 ($81) yet that same piece of software is $43 list price in Chinese Renminbi. It is all to do with local markets, taxing and other costs. Why pretty much anything in the UK is higher than elsewhere, who knows but it can't be that subsidies are provided on everything.

The Base price was meant to be the pre-tax price here in the UK , which would equate to a US base price. After VAT (Sales Tax) the price in the UK is nearer $16K.

Wow, $16k for a $10-11k bike. I guess that free government healthcare isn't as free as it sounds.

I think the Metzeler Feel Free Wintec would be a better choice.

I have discovered that each Max BMW store will have a demo 650GT by late October or early November. I am awaiting the order confirmation and VIN.

Can anyone tell me how this pricing compares with the pricing down in the US?
