    Maybe not so drastic, but the same comments were made with the intro of the Hexhead about the oilhead value actually increasing. It disn't happen.

    I bought the first year R1200GS and R1200ST, neither have had any major issues related to their "beta" status. I am confident the Wethead will also be similarly reliable, and will likely be an early adopter of it too.

    This thread seems to be dead, nothing new.

    Glad to hear you are still employed DasMatti !:D

    did they mention a HP number?
    heavier? how much heavier?
    is there going to be a normal GS and an Adventure?

    thanks!

    I was thinking the same but then I saw his thread :-)
    DasMatti: Keep out of trouble, we'll be enlightened sooner than later. The EICMA will hopefully bring some news.
