'The Price' is going to be $18,500 + onroads + add on's

'ETA on arrival' I was told it would be within 1.5 to 2months after the marketing and pricing stuff is sent to the dealers and that was sent 2 weeks ago. so maybe 1 to 1.5months.

Now given the fact there is quite a few of us hanging for one of these, perhaps we should get together a list of serious buyers and go hit up a dealer for however many of them?

So far theres 3 of us.. Me, robhrt and ararat..
So is it $18500 plus on roads plus 'launch edition' extras ?

For globetrotters who know what they want: the Launch Edition

Everyone who wants to be perfectly prepared and head off into the next adventure with the F800GS Adventure as quickly as possible can purchase the exclusive Launch Edition of this travel enduro available only in Sandrover matt. The Launch Edition is available only this year.

The Launch edition combines the best equipment packages (Comfort Package, Enduro Package, Special Accessories Package) and features these equipment details leaving nothing to be desired for the big trip:

• On-board computer
• Heated grips
• Main stand
• Offroad mode
• Aluminium pannier set incl. locks
• Top box mounting
• Navigator Adventure incl. mounting and cables.

To be honest you would think they launch the bike at a really great price to get them out on the road then after a year raise the price. Developing a following (great show btw) would be smart.
