BINGO!! - Official Pictures of the new KGT!!

http://bmwk1200s.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2038

Hit the link to reveal the all new GT! Now this forum can really get started. What do you all think. Yes, pro and con! For starters, look at the way they did the front turn signals.

Oh hell, I'm going to stop now and read what all you folks think!

Maybe Kjell or Randy can do their internet magic and put the pictures on our forum instead of clicking on the link?

Why do we think these photoshop pics are real? I'm not biting until some decent pics show up.

They look like the the real thing. It looks like these were scanned right off of a marketing slick sheet.

I will post when I find 'clean.pictures', not sure of this one.... but if this is it..

Wow..... another reason to not even think of it compared to my K1200S...


My 2 cents, Shiva finally found this one :p

The first "two" (looks like the same photo to me) I don't believe were photoshopped. The "color" ones might have been- at least to get each color, but I don't think the bike itself is. That is an integrated design, not a cut&paste from other bikes.


What do I think? I think several things- one is that BMW is finally making the KRT I've wanted for the last 5 years, whatever they choose to call it. And it's NOT bad looking, MUCH better than the R1200RT. I think I will get one. And it looks to me like this bike still leaves room for a KRS in the lineup. . .

if the pictures are indeed real i may have to wait another several months to move up from the RS to the new GT. i like the looks of the new GT and while i seldom use the cruise control on my RS i like the idea of having it available. time will tell and before i make a decision i'll have to see the bike in person.

Why I am skeptical:
  1. Why would an official packet show up on Shiva's doorstep and no where else in the world?
  2. This GT has an entirely new rear subframe and passenger peg arrangement than the S has? It doesn't make good sense from a cost perspective.
  3. Why would an official packet show up on Shiva's doorstep and no where else in the world?
  4. The passenger seat looks too much like the S. (i.e. NOT a sport-touring seat.)
  5. Why change the clutch and brake resevoirs? These look like 2005 GT handlebars and controls.
  6. Why would an official packet show up on Shiva's doorstep and no where else in the world?
So there you have it. I'm a skeptic.

p.s. Now if those bags and tail rack will just fit on an S .....

So do you think Shiva got the inside edge. He is so liked. Maybe he is just that good.

I share your skepticism given the source. Still, makes interesting internet fodder.
thanks cbn
