None of those are right! The last one is a badly photoshopped R1200 Hexhead.

I want a new bike BMW! Please make it not as bad as the ones in these photos!

JVB is right about that "GSA" pic. It's a hexhead, with 1150GSA bags and a beak that looks like a "before" Viagra pic.

The funny course for the headers is probably necessitated by the downdraft nature of the intake/exhaust. Looks funky though.

rear rack is to long I don't want to load the bike that far of the rear tire, the headers are totally expose, the front fender/headlight looks like crap (for me at least) and the radiator fairing looks to big almost like the GSA

Hey Jim,

I recall betting a bottle of Bacardi (me) against a case (you) about the BMW water cooled boxer.
As a matter of fact, here's the thread!

Jim, you will see the bike presented either at Intermot or EICMA next as a 2013 model with availibility prolly 2nd Quarter next year, more than likely end of 3rd quarter.

I think the OP's sense of the rear rack geometry is off. I doubt it's any farther aft than the current bike. Remember, we're looking at either photochops or spy photos. Test mules are meant to be viually strange. Now, the headers will probably have to be a bit weird due to the new intake. The rad(s) are anybody's guess.
