Wow! Aside from feelings of inadequacy for being scooped twice on the K1200GT (pictures and now prices), this looks very interesting. I'd like to know where you got it, but understand if you are reluctant to share (sources are sources, right?)

It appears that the base price is right in line with the R1200RT - exactly the same. I'd have to go to my spec sheet, but those options look almost the same as the options for the R1200RT. Same for the Accessories. But that could be because they share so many of them (i.e., topcase, alarm, navigator II, etc...). And based on the earlier estimate of $19000-$21000, assuming the right combination of options, that looks about right.

Seems like features that were standard on the 2005 are now options. It's going to add up in a hurry. The only option I paid for on my bike was a passenger backrest. All the rest - cruise, heated seat etc were standard.

If it works anything like they did it with the K1200LT, bikes coming to the US will have a set of "option packages" that will be on every bike sent over here, unless the buyer specifies a bike without those options.

For example, the K1200LT has a "convenience option package" that includes the alarm, central locking system (key fob locks all compartments), and the floor lighting. I also know that most dealers would order them loaded with everything except the intercom and navigation system as a baseline.

I can see the same thing here, where the K1200GT comes as a base US model with heated seats, heated grips, cruise control, on board computer with oil level warning, and radio prep. ESA, radio, and alarm would be options that could be ordered.

Radio Prep on the R1200RT is for the wiring harness, antenna, and installation at the factory. The Radio Option is the BMW radio, button panel, speakers, and handlebar controls.

I was under the impression from BMW's info that a HID headlight would be an option. I think this is a price list for a RT...

Prediction:
Five years from now, an '04 GT will have the same resale value as an '06.
