    I'll add:-

    Cruise Control.
    Heated seats as an option.

    This is now in the touring category . Horsepower will need to be 130 or more to have my interest,

    So, after YouTube takes out the ads you're going to pay a dime for every vid you watch to pay for what it costs to run YouTube?

    You really don't understand how things work and get paid for?

    Watch out, your turnip truck just drove by.

    Personally, as far as I'm concerned YouTube and its BS commercials can disappear tomorrow. I'm pretty sure the world will just keep on turnin'.

    It may be a fine motorcycle, but it's damn ugly.

    Not really what I had expected, won't make the 2012 look too outdated.

    I can see sports muffler, windshield, along with ECE so probably electric screen and the flapper valve thing. There are a few other things that are ECE but I cant make them out enough to translate.

    Personally I couldn't care less about power and weight I don't want more power as its not the right bike for it but the looks are meh. That said I dont like the look of the current GS which is why I got the GSA so hopefully that will look better when it comes.

    Imagine if the introduction of the new GS caused a huge spike in 2012 GS sales. :lol3
