But I hear ya...I don't like the idea of adding any weight! I was hoping that the integrated gearbox weight savings might offset the radiators, but I guess not. That porky muffler added it all back!

Whoever has $25,000 burning a hole in their pocket, can't wait to buy a new GS and wants to unload their "old" 2010-2012 fully farkled R1200GS for $10-12,000, please PM me! At least some of the thousands I have in farkles on my '05 will transfer over!

I've never been a fan ot the GSA, too heavy and I do not need the extra gas. However, I do like the look of this one better. Still, I will be going with the basic GS next year.

I was hoping for 140bhp. GS's have never been pretty, but the new bike makes the 2012 look like a supermodel. I like the Brembo monobloc's, and wish my Multi had those. I'm sure it's going to be a great bike to ride, but I was hoping for something that would make me want to trade my Multi, and this doesn't.

You can compare the GSA to the GS.
Click compare models then click on the left tab at the bottom, "Bike configurator".

It looks like the GSA is not changed too much.
Air/oil cooled for GSA, Air /liquid cooled for GS.

Same single plate dry clutch for GSA, Wet clutch for GS, which looks like it's located in the front of the engine.
Those are the two that stood out the most to me.

This might change your mind. 150HP, 17" front and rear wheels, and plenty of electronic gadgetry like the GS.

Sign me up for the Flat Earth Society.

I'm not feeling the love either. I'm willing to hold off final judgement until I see it in the metal... but the fanged beak is goofy, and I also hate the shiny radiator guards/features/whatever. Don't want to guess what the cost will be either.

May have to take another look at that KTM... or Tenere. Better yet, find a good deal on a current used one.
