Most of the guys I know that buy BMW are serious about riding and put lots of miles on. They tend to prefer touring bikes with bags and and a fairing with good reason. The R1200r is a nice bike but I don't see a big market for it. Naked bike riders tend to buy cheaper, lighter bikes. More bang for the buck. Guy that have the bucks generally want all the bells and whistles. There are good deals on them if you can find them and they are a very good all around bike.
