Hmmm... my baby's got 50,000km on her now. Sounds like it may be almost time to start scanning for a replacement.

I was at a dealer a few days ago and he mentioned this announcement was coming later in the week, once they had spread the word to all the American dealers. Bigger tank (I think he said 5.6 gallons?), maybe increased suspension travel (+1").

I see the bigger tank but making this thing taller? BUH

Tubeless wheels would be nice.

The easiest way to get at bigger tank is by making it taller :-)

we will see what they will add - it probably will be expensive.

And there is nothing about it the newest "Motorrad" announcement on their website, where they mention new R models incl. the watercooled GSA.

I never thought it would happen - ooh well.

If they added:

White power longer travel fully adjustable suspension retaining abs.
18in rear wheel
Tpms standard
Beefed up shock tower
Larger fuel tank - 5-6 gallons
More interesting Colour schemes
Slightly taller stance for bigger people.

I'd buy one in a heart beat.

If it comes out next year you can figure all the bugs will be worked out by 2018.

Even if I don't see the 18" rear wheel happening I'd add some nice Excel rims on the list

My dealer also confirmed that a 800GSA was coming. Didn't say when.

My dealer told me they were getting ready to release a 800GSA.

Don't know how full of shit he is or not, but I can't see why they wouldn't do it, given the popularity of the F8.

I personally wouldn't be interested in one, but I think it's be a neat option.
