touche (and well played, sir!)

The camhead does go back a ways further. Just the mass production of it does not, and maybe that doesn't matter.

Maybe this is gonna be like the Russian/US race to the moon.

Ducati's Multi did well enough at Pikes Peak this year so maybe BMW will want to catch up with more power and bring it to market sooner?

I personally don't need 150hp in anything 2 wheeled, and I love the current Boxer as it is, and I loved the one before it. And I reserve some assumption that slower development increases reliability but I don't wanna bring the trolls out to start slamming BMW's innovations either.

Really you should look at it like this

1994-2004 1100/1150 (basically the same engine)
2005-201x 1200

With the introduction of the 1100GS the 100GS was still going in limited numbers 'till 1997 wasn't it with the Kalahari Edition of the R100GS?

Perhaps they'll have a Dead Horse Edition of the R1200GS... along side the R1300GS

Perhaps the Dead Horse Edition is in fact the 2011 triple-black GS. After all, it's the undertaker's color.

Then it would be the Adventure that's running besides the 'normal' GS 1300 like the 1150 ADv. diduntill 2006.

so I would say 2012 GS1300
2014 GS1300 Adv

my worthless 2ct

That makes sense in that it would allow the bike to be unveiled at the next Intermot in 2012, which is BMW's home show. And most new engines get teased the year before production, so a Wasserboxer at EICMA this year.

and, unfortunately, my R12GS is as close to a Goldwing as I intend to get. 1.5 litres or more is fine for a big tourer, but that's not what I bought a GS for. It's already a little too big and heavy for a dual sport tourer.

2300CC's if this is true. I like the thought. It would kick the zooks from the throne!
