It's purdy, but I could also buy a car for what it costs :D

hankgs 10-05-2012 01:10 PM

It will be
 
"Bike of the Year..." That is my prediction anyway. I am surprised they threw the exhaust on the right side, now they need to re-tool all new luggage- not just at BMW, but ALL the aftermarket companies...!
I like what they did, I just don't understand the exhaust thing- plus it mucks up the beautiful FD view!

Roam 10-05-2012 01:35 PM

I mostly like it better than the current version but it's just too busy.

k1w1t1m 10-05-2012 03:11 PM

Is that the oil level sight glass I see behind the exhaust on the same side as the filler?

pcwirepro 10-05-2012 03:22 PM

1200?
 
Where's the 50. As in 1250. Maybe I just can't see it. No coolant lines that I could see, pretty edgy looking machine. I hope the market gets flooded with lightly used 1200's. :evil

Beemerlover 10-05-2012 03:26 PM

I just can't figure out how they're gonna put a big gas tank on the ADV models - if they even produce them in the future. I guess they'll figure something out though.

Still glad I went with a '13 GSA TB at this point though - better the devil you know, IMHO! :evil

FWIW, I really do like the looks and all of the new features (if they don't cause more problems than they supposedly solve) of the new GS except for that "spork-beak" and the headlight, which to me are just downright hideous.

Just how much DO the new GS's cost anyway?

Aircooled911 10-05-2012 04:10 PM

Just seems like way too much is going on. There doesnt seem to be a line for the eye to follow. Bike seems chopped up and hard to focus on. Also dont like how you can see a screw right on the air scoop. Couldnt they have hidden that or designed differently to avoid seeing it?

EJ_92606 10-05-2012 04:40 PM

Thanks for posting...so what do you think after sitting on it and seeing it up close?

Stinkyb 10-05-2012 05:01 PM

Im liking it alot. Thanks for the pics.
The more you look at it the more you like it. Im sure its a different bag in person.
Alot of redesign and I think it was time. Theres only so many different shades of lipstick you can slap on the gs before colors begin to recycle.
I do like the new gs in white tho:norton
I am looking forward to seeing the gsa...o and long term abuse reports of the gs.

upright ADV type bikes are typically far from beautiful. ducati 916s they are not :1drink

having said that, i am really liking what i see.

Beemerlover 10-05-2012 05:11 PM

I'm assuming that the new bikes have the same 36,000 mile limitation on the warranty? I wonder how much those new electronic shocks cost when they have to be replaced? The ESA shocks on the current model are around $2000 each I think. Maybe $3000 each for these new ones? Hopefully Wilbers and/or Ohlins will have come up with repairable units by the time the OEM's start to wear out.
