Question Any new rumours?

Does anyone have any new info on likely availability of the '07 K1200S? Speculation was rampant for a while, but I haven't seen anything recently. When's BMW going to break their 'cone of silence'?

What "cone of silence"? The only modification is that the '07 models will be equipped with the non-servo Conti-Teves ABS. Production will start in September.

Maf-n-red! You have been into the Schnapps again ---- see what happens when there is holidays. Germany looked like a very happy place during the recent World Cup.

And that's based on what info? The dealers I spoke with here in the States don't have a production schedule, nothing listed in the pipeline, no pricelists, nothing on their website... Maybe it's too early - when will BMW officially roll-out the '07 changes (in the States)? Oh, and how about the Azzurri?

That's based on info from my (German) dealer (and on the info members of our German forum got from their dealers, too). It's very normal that US dealers get infos quite late (and why other members appreciate the info I get and publish here). However, I don't care if you believe me or not. If you want to know when this information will be published in the US, I suggest you ask BMW of America.

BTW: I have a '07 R on order which I most probably will get in September.
