I am sure they know Greece has soooo much money for consumer goodies... eh Plissken?

US prices are before any taxes, setup, and fees. Some dealers call out up to $500 set up fee (rip off), taxes are different per state, license fee are a few hundred bucks, not that much.

Looks like when you calculate all that, the prices in the US are about 5% higher than in Germany (before tax). Not certain whether I'm basing on the correct data though, as I don't have official German pricing, just what I found online via a quick Google scan.

The premium plus is $485 more than the price of my 2011 GS, but my bike does not have cruise control or LED Headlight. Not a bad deal.

No more guessing on how much will I have to spend to own WC with my options

1. Premium Package Plus:
a) Heated hand grips
b) Cruise control
c) Saddle bag mounts
d) Dynamic ESA
e) On Board Computer Pro
f) GPS PrepRation
g) Hand protection
h) Enduro ASC/Riding Modes
i) TPM
j) LED lights

2. Low suspension
3. Cross Spoke Wheels

That brings it to final take home price of $22,000. This constitutes basically a loaded bike. I might debate on the Anti-Theft-Alarm when it comes time for the dotted line.

I have two sets of wheels for my GS. The fronts weigh the same (this is with tires mounted-tkc on spoke and Conti road attack on alloy). For the rear, the spoke was 1.5lbs heavier.
