These look outstanding.............
The RS version
The R version.
These should be outstanding and then some......:hump:
Interesting that they went back to a conventional USD fork, maybe having the radiator up there now complicated using the telelever?
That R1200R in the white/red looks fantastic.
That RS might be the best looking modern boxer they've made to date!
I was surprised when I saw the images. That RS is a surprisingly good looking boxer.
See what happens when you don't use asymmetric headlights?
More info here. Notably, they're abandoning telelever for the R and RS.
The RS looks fantastic. Looks to be a worthy successor to the R100RS and the R90 and R100S's with a proper seat and proper side cases.
Also wise that it is called R1200RS and not R1200ST.
Up until today I never thought I would get rid of my 1200R anytime soon but damn that RS looks nice.
I don't really like the new GS/GSA, but these are quite nice. I like the RS a lot. And thank goodness for conventional USD forks!!!
I am surprised that the new R1200RS does not come with cruise control.
Maybe they will add it the following year.
It looks like it does as an option
I'm liking the R1200RS in dark grey. And since no-one has posted a picture yet...
Add a nice little removable little passenger backrest and will be one heck of a sports tourer.
Damn, now I have to go and order one.
Bugger off posting temptation like this.
As a currant owner of a R1100RS and many bmws in the past including hexheads, its nice to see a good effort a of a RS version using the new powerplant.Certainly dosnt want to make you throw up like the hexhead RS did by looking at it lol. I wonder how big those panniers are?
I reckon they will sell lots of these. It is a shame though that with the new age styling of angles and edges on currant production bosses office tables that we don't see more nice smooth flowing organic curves, just like in nature, and sexy women lol, you guys know what I mean eh?.
The R version looks a little unfinished around the radiator area, but its a difficult area to get right, specially when we are used to just air cooling and a small oil cooler of previous gen models that were easy to blend in.
I still think these would look so much nicer with more curves, but Im sure in 10yrs time it will be considered 'trendy' and we will get nice shapes on bikes from new.
Rudolph? Is it you with your shiny nose?
That's my thinking also - radiator got in the way.
Official Quote from BMW (roughly translated from a german bike Magazin):
"We were able to better integrate the radiator into the bike by NOT using a telelever fork"
It looks like they are asymmetrical but they do a better job at disguising it. I like it.
