2012 R 1200 GS Rallye special edition

Since I hadn't seen this mentioned anywhere before........

2012 R 1200 GS Rallye special edition




Introducing the 2012 R 1200 GS Rallye special edition, inspired by the Dakar winning GS bikes. This new special model comes in Alpine White body with Magma Red frame. The legendary Dakar winning looks are rounded off by the cylinder head covers in Granite Grey metallic and the aluminum die-cast single-sided swing arm in Asphalt Grey metallic. Contrast is provided by the engine finished in black as well as the seat in black/off-white with red inlaid seams

Look closer Someone beat you by a few hours..

Nice looking bike though. I like the red subframe. I think I'd prefer the black GSA rims but it is sweet nonetheless.

Does the Rallye have any other special mechanical bits or is it all cosmetic?

D'oh.

And I even looked first (but missed it).

Looks all cosmetic to me - just a pre-watercooled special edition.

Yeah... it on introduced on the BMWGS Facebook page, and there was a great comment left by someone:

"You've hired a Product Development Mgr from Harley Davidson? This is the third "special edition" 1200GS, and it's all about paint."

If thats it....JUST PAINT"One word comes to mind.... "sophomoric".
Jeeeeeezus, why not put some Audi eyebrows on it, and throw in "free" oil changes for the first 50K miles....N' watch em fly off the dealers shelves.

Are we that gullible to pay good money for a "Dakar Special"?

It's in its last year of production.. they gotta do something to entice buyers to get this bike rather than wait for the water cooled boxer coming next year.

Make over is nothing new. Most vehicle manufacturers do a make over each year to sell new units. I think they did a pretty nice job. Love the red frame.
