I'm sure there will be a hardcore off-road accessory to help guard it.
For enduro purists.
The equipment variant Offroad.
This package was compiled specifically for those who want to enjoy their R 1200 GS pure, but do not intend to ignore those practical extras. The daytime running light presents a clear advantage for visual appeal and safety, and ASC and disengageable ABS provide adequate traction particularly on loose surfaces. The equipment variant Offroad at a glance:
I think BMW are going feel the competition. I am glad I didn't wait for the new GS. The KTM looks more interesting to me, which is surprising because I hated the test mule, the complete opposite for the GS, the test mule looks better than the finished bike. So what have I gone for? I got a great deal on 2012 multistrada S touring
Well, BMW has successfully made me love my 1150 even more. There is that.
I'm feeling it your way too. The big disincentive as a rider for me with the latest GSs is the weight. They just keep getting porkier. Most of my riding is on road. This new machine makes the Ducati look more attractive to me, not less. I was waiting for this, but for my style of riding, it is a disappointment.
Any official word from BMW as to when the GS will arrive at the US dealers? Any hints as to the Adventure version or the RT?
Please note the cruise control on the controls... for those who've been clamoring for it.
Rumour has it that an adventure is at least a year away which makes sense. The RT probably a year away too but my 2c says it'll be the one worth waiting for.
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.
