Pricing

"Pricing has yet to be announced. It’s likely the base GS will be close in price to the current bike—$16,150 with ABS but without ESA or ASC. As with the current bike, adding all the options will probably take you above $20K.

Looks like I'll get one in 7-10years, after my current 2008GS has 350K-500K on it.

We in SA call the non spoke wheels ones the standard R1200GS and the ones with spokes and other few extras the Adventure model, they cost +/- R10 000 more than the standard model.

Thumbs down

From ther Motorcyclist review...The engine is a little less tractor-like in slow, off-road situations, and where the quick-revving new engine benefits with increased midrange or high rpm power, it is a little bit less friendly when lugging through a tricky section of dirt.
