Ditto, big time.

12k puts it head to head with the 2014 Z1000 as well.

I sat on one at the show on Saturday. It's not as upright as I thought it would be, which is a shame as I have back issues. FWIW, the KTM 1190R is more comfortable, for me. This is a shame, as I prefer BMW bikes to KTM.

Thats MSRP, BUT, we know if the Beemer even is $12,000 MSRP, it would sell for $12,000.

That Z1000 may be $12k MSRP, but you will be able to get the Z all day long for $9,000.

Same applies once you sell them, though...

I can't consider your post because I am to busy hating you for all the cool bikes you have.

I like it. I can't wait to see how it lines up price wise with the Tuono, the KTM, the Z1000, and the new Monster. Not to mention how does in the shootouts. In my eyes though the KTM is the looker of the group... minus that exhaust.

I don't like the steering lock problem though. I ride in town a great deal.

You and me, both. That kind of stuff will eat at me and drive me crazy over time. Is there an easy fix, maybe?
