Makes sense then if they are simply fulfilling market-specific regulations like the red/amber side reflectors the rest of the world misses out... I'm curious to see the NA versions of the optional LED indicators which are lower profile in the EU than the incandescent ones... if they're available in the NA market - BMW Canada seems to be 7 months behind schedule on updating the F800GS page on their website... shame on them!
