I wonder if there's less interest in the bike because it's lost the spec sheet battles. The H2 is up 10 bhp over the R1 or new S1000RR, but 35 to 40 kg heavier. The fact that it's got a mountain of...

The K1300S sold in reasonable numbers, particularly when it first came out, and the R1200RS would seem to be a replacement for that (OK, it's going to be a bit slower), the R1200ST and R1200S.

Nope.

The Paton (http://www.paton.it/en/moto/S1) is a gorgeous little machine. Not as much of a beast as the H2, but far prettier.

It's probably going to be unveiled at EICMA in a month's time. BMW tends to split its new launches between the two shows to guarantee maximum press coverage.

I do like the R1200RS though.
