I have a feeling from talking to the Sales Manager of North County BMW (San Diego) at the Long Beach Cycle show last night, this bike is going to be a hot seller. He said they have 9 on pre-order now along with their demo model. He suspects they'll begin to show up in January. Unfortunately, along with the popularity comes lousy financing rates and "No deals" for a while. Most all the early runs will be fully-equipped models (i.e. the high-priced ones).

I post some photos of the three colors they had on display in the Photography section elsewhere on this site. Link here. Their "black" version was absent. The green wasn't as obnoxious as I had first thought when I saw it. Overall it is very compact in design and far more compact than the new Ducati Multistrada 1200 which semed to have a lot of vacant real-estate around the front forks.

The S1000RR had quite a bit of interest from onlookers with the Yamaha guys standing in the isle watching the activity like vultures. Didn't hear anyone bash the asymmetric design like I had expected.

The Ducati booth was well populated as well. Ducati generates a lot of interest in their new models for a small company. The girl said they paid a "Large sum of money to be there." They had their stunt riding team there as well as their clothing modeling thing which they seem to be breaking into.

The Harley carpet area seemed a bit of a ghost town. Changing demographics I guess.

Mack, you aren't comparing the Multistrada to the RR. Two different animals. GS similar purpose to Multi, RR to 1198/(S)-SB to SB.

IMHO-sound is very subjective-hence-so many aftermarket systems. That said-just about all in-line-4's sound the same to me. Give me a nice L-twin ala Ducati, or the sweet sound of a V4-new Aprilia RSV4. Even the new VRF1200 sounds pretty sweet..
