I hope BMW doesn't 'optionize' the hell out of this bike for different price points in the market. Just give us the damn bike with all the features for fair market value that competes with the Multistrada/KTM. Besides, the GSA should be where they make the money on the extra options.

Where'd you get this information? Any more you care to share? Maybe even the US price? Am I the only one that is waking up every morning wondering what the price will be? It's bad for my health.

I read somewhere that the base price is going to be the same as the camhead, but new bike includes ABS, so not sure if they will increase the base price to reflect that. The market is getting competitive, so I don't think the options will be as pricey as some expect...but then again it's BMW...it's not going to be cheap. And I doubt you'll find many base models available at dealers in the US in the first year.

I don't know if I will hold out for the 2014-2015 GSA triple black or just buy a black one next year? Thinking of trading in my Dakar and 12GS... We shall see!

Anyone else see this today? $20,990?! I don't know if I believe that or not. $4-5k more than a 2012 camhead?

And the GSA is $21,390, a mere $400 more? I smell something fishy.

My dealer already has a 2013 GSA in stock sitting in the showroom......what's fishy about that? The '13 has no changes whatsoever for the GSA....well, its a white one and the "1200" on the tank is in that sand beige color...i think that might be new...

I suppose I assumed it was a water boxer GSA.

Sounds to me like the dealer just took a wild shot and set a price on their own.

Magna Red is not a color choice for the 2013 air cooled GS......only options will be the Rallye and Triple Black (my dealer tells me). current 2012 GS colors are silver, blue, white and triple black......so still a bit unclear as to what exact bike they are speaking of.

Sounds like 'Autoevolution' should get their facts straight for legitimacy of their site.

Well looks are subjective so to each his own I guess. I personally think they did a very good job on the refresh. Nothing drastic but subtle updates and I am sure a few changes that needed to be done for functional reasons. It looks meaner in my opinion. That said I like the looks of many Adv bikes. The S10 looks good to me as well.
