But I have to say other than the tank I like the foglights. Well integrated... but I don't think that the windshield alone would be sufficient. Seems like it would generate more buffing than before.
In some of the BMW launch pictures of the bike it is outfittet with a bigger alu bashplate. Looks like the same as BMW offers for the standard 800gs.
Ok just checked out bmw-motorrad.de. Its 3mm alu and weighs 1.6kg this bashplate.
And on TTs german page it looks like the only parts for this bike are parts that fit directly from the 800gs....... For now.
