And I'm getting it at MSRP. So your price, depending on what's included, doesn't seem all that out of line to me.

That's a bit of a shame. In other words, that MSRP is misleading since how many bikes do you think will come to the US w/o center stand or OBC and/or ABS? Probably none. I really thought BMW did right by this one to include all the essentials (center stand, OBC) and only really make ABS an option.

The price gap to a 12GS just got a lot smaller. 10 to 14k is a big jump, 12 to 14 is a lot less.
