I’m curious to get your opinion on possible pricing for the two models.
Current MSRP for the premium 1300GT is $22,595 (USA)
MSRP for the 1200LT is $21,700 (a 9 year old model, close to EOL)
The 2010 Honda Goldwing with Nav, XM and ABS is selling for $26,599.
I heard there won’t be a 2011 model but a all new model shipping mid year as a 2012 model.
Price-wise, a six cylinder engine has to be positioned higher up than a 4c but I assume there is limited elasticity for a GT and more for a GTL. Will BMW be able to command higher price for a GTL than Honda for a GW1800?
If BMW stops selling the K1300GT, I doubt they can they charge over $23,900 for a GT1600. They may have a basic GT around $20K and a premium version at $24K
Will a fully loaded 1600GTL at $26,900 or $27,500 sell in large enough quantities for BMW to get the ROI they need on a brand new engine, frame, etc.? Will we see “Packages” available on the GTL too? That may take the bike up to $29,500. Hmmm…
