    Interesting, all demo bikes with spoke wheels and all static displays with cast. Looks best in white, IMHO.

    The blue one has cast wheels. US bikes have always had cast, with the spoked wheels being a $500 option. different countries may well have different spec sheets

    Werner Hollaender Cool, you're one of the first Herbert Schwarz! What do you think of the dynamic ESA? Does it make the bike better offroad?

    Herbert Schwarz it is a big change and makes the bike beetr in offroad-conditions. The bike feels like 50 kilo less weight, even if the weight is the same as the old R1200GS

    True, but if this thread were in the correct forum, I might not have seen it. :wink:

    No. The press release was supposed to be today, but was cancelled because of moto-journalist Kevin Ash's death at the event, today

    I do not have the words to communicate my profound sense of loss, for a man I never knew.
    I think all of us on this board are impacted in a really deep, solemn manner- I know that I am.
    My heart goes out to the family and friends of Kevin.

    The launch of a new bike that can seem so very important to us moto-heads seems quite trivial today after reading this development and certainly provides perspective to what really matters in life. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

    Godspeed Mr. Ash

    Tragic. Condolences to his family, and prayers for the late Kevin Ash.
