Any teen age boy will explain that one to you.
With ya on that.
That beak, to me, looks like a cat box scoop. :eek1
Yes. Once the water cooling makes these bikes 'equals', the KTM is looking more attractive (barring of course an epiphany during test rides). Narrower engine, and better styling for sure.
In looking at the link of all the hi-res photos, did you notice the photo of the left grip, is that cruise control I see?????
Not to split HAIRS/ or HARES with you, but perhaps the sub group could be more accurately called:
"S Schweinefleisch Nose"
Just a little detail I noticed... it comes with Michelin Anakee 3 tires :eek1
Yeah, that is a bummer, and will take some getting used to.
Cruise is nice though.
Maybe, but if they do not protrude past the same place the current side panels are it won't be an issue.
Oh, excellent, JoeDuck! That eluded me. Thanks!
It's not 60 pounds...the BMW material show shows 238kg dry which is 524 lbs vs. Camhead at 496 I think, so 28 lbs more.
Yeah, I fixed it. Thanks.
I heard there would be cruise, i just can't believe it.
But I hear ya...I don't like the idea of adding any weight! I was hoping that the integrated gearbox weight savings might offset the radiators, but I guess not. That porky muffler added it all back!
Whoever has $25,000 burning a hole in their pocket, can't wait to buy a new GS and wants to unload their "old" 2010-2012 fully farkled R1200GS for $10-12,000, please PM me! At least some of the thousands I have in farkles on my '05 will transfer over!
I am with the others here, like waht I am seeing so far.
Ready now, but want the ADV.
The wife alreeady "knows", but just to be sure.... I made one of those pics from Africa my desktop.

Electronic cruise control!
LOL, I'll try that technique, I'm in for sure too
I've never been a fan ot the GSA, too heavy and I do not need the extra gas. However, I do like the look of this one better. Still, I will be going with the basic GS next year.
I was hoping for 140bhp. GS's have never been pretty, but the new bike makes the 2012 look like a supermodel. I like the Brembo monobloc's, and wish my Multi had those. I'm sure it's going to be a great bike to ride, but I was hoping for something that would make me want to trade my Multi, and this doesn't.
