I've been waiting for an F800GS with a bigger tank since the 800 came out. Been farting around on an over farkled KLR in the mean time. Almost bought a Super Ten 2 years ago, now I'm glad I didn't. I'm buying one as soon as they hit the dealers (US).

Ok so the news is out.

'The Launch Edition' is 1000 units that will be in sandstorm and 1 per dealer for demo purposes with all the mods and extras you could add on (purely for the demo reasons) You will pay just the same as you would if you order it afterwards and there is zero difference between that and ordering it afterwards.

'The Price' is going to be $18,500 + onroads + add on's

'ETA on arrival' I was told it would be within 1.5 to 2months after the marketing and pricing stuff is sent to the dealers and that was sent 2 weeks ago. so maybe 1 to 1.5months.

Now given the fact there is quite a few of us hanging for one of these, perhaps we should get together a list of serious buyers and go hit up a dealer for however many of them?

So far theres 3 of us.. Me, robhrt and ararat..

Laugh

Further update,

I spoke with head office and they said they are not sure how many or when they will arrive until they are despatched from germany. So none are in ships or in transit yet.

BMW HO also confirmed there is no difference between the 'launch version' and the post release version, which is a shame.. if it had a different coloured seat or something we could keep em as collectables lol.. The first ever BMW that you could ride 500km without stopping for fuel! thats got to be a collectable item doesn't it?

Test rode the 1200GSA for an entire day without (bike was in service) stopping for fuel and that was 550kms. Gave it back empty to the dealer since he told me not to refill it.

Pretty sure the R100GS Dakar had also a pretty good range.

I asked the local dealer about the GSA version....he said that apart from the fuel tank there'd be no point.

Honesty wont sell bikes.

But I appreciate it.

Spares is going to price the tank and sub frame when they appear on the system.

So is it $18500 plus on roads plus 'launch edition' extras ?




For globetrotters who know what they want: the Launch Edition

Everyone who wants to be perfectly prepared and head off into the next adventure with the F800GS Adventure as quickly as possible can purchase the exclusive Launch Edition of this travel enduro available only in Sandrover matt. The Launch Edition is available only this year.

The Launch edition combines the best equipment packages (Comfort Package, Enduro Package, Special Accessories Package) and features these equipment details leaving nothing to be desired for the big trip:

• On-board computer
• Heated grips
• Main stand
• ASC
• Offroad mode
• Aluminium pannier set incl. locks
• Top box mounting
• Navigator Adventure incl. mounting and cables.

To be honest you would think they launch the bike at a really great price to get them out on the road then after a year raise the price. Developing a following (great show btw) would be smart.

Thats right, so we have had quotes of 21 to 25k for the f800gsa with the extras to fit out like the launch edition..

It would be nice if they did that, if you are one of the first 1000 to buy, you get the launch edition extras for free.. But typical BMW wouldnt do such a great deal.. Instead they think they have enough of a following that people want it even at RRP.

I am quite tempted by the KTM 1190 Adv R.. 150hp sounds like its a lot of fun!

Can anyone in the first world please advise of any quotes they have obtained for the launch edition f800 GSA?

Really keen to find out the extra cost the rest of the world is getting compared to our country the socialist democratic Australia

It appears the launch edition is not coming to Australia

Pricing for the 800gs adventure is $21500 aud which is $21500 US dollars.

If the launch edition did come here it would be north of $25000 aud/usd on the street.

Quite frankly that is just a rip off.

Better to buy a standard gs800 and customize it.

Launch Edition?

I don't know if I'm getting the "launch edition". But it's coming with:

Enduro PKG which includes Off Road Mode (ABS/ASC)
Enduro ASC

Luxury PKG which includes Heated Grips
On Board Computer
Center Stand

LED Fog Light

ESA II (electronic Suspension ADJ)

Total Price including destination charge $15,545.

Some people make remarks about the price. It seems reasonable for a BMW. Not for a V-Strom or some other mid sized bikes. Besides, it's only money and you only go around once. Ask me, I know. I'm 71.

Nice one, I hope i make it to 71 and I'm still riding ADV bikes

Anyway, This raises a Debate.. F800GSA $21k+ or F800 GS $17,500k with touratech options such as..

Fuel tank conversion 34 Litres http://shop.touratech.de/tank-conver...unpainted.html $899EUR
Stainless rear crash/pannier bars $249EURO
Stainless Engine Bars $199 EURO
Stainless Optional Extension for fairings $179EURO
Hand Guards $89EURO
& Fog lights $249EURO
Totalling $1864Euro or $2440Aud + shipping and Id advise getting it sent in 3 lots below $1000aud otherwise customs will be around $500 on top.

I sure wouldn't mind having a bigger tank on my 2011. The extra range would be amazing.
