Talking Reverse and hydraulic sidestand

Is it right that BMW are going to put reverse gear and the hydraulic centre stand on the 2007 GT? If so, can they also put electrically adjustable heated mirrors as it is a bit of a reach for me to adjust them and wipe the rain off.

The 2008 K1200GT will have 2 wheel drive (not an option) and power steering (maybe an option). Or was it the other way around?

I also heard the 2007 GT will have solid rubber tires that never go flat or need replacing and maintenance free muffler bearings.

Hey, don't forget the BEST improvement. They're going to improve the horn, as I hear they got a real buy on a bunch of AAH-OOH-GAH model A horns!

Now you are just being ridiculous. The're not likely to improve the horn now, are they?
However a cup holder might be a possibility...

Actuallly I heard a few things...

... new to 2007 -- wings! In a move that will cross promote Red Bull - BMW North America is adding a pair of wings to the 2007 GT. This improvement will allow the 2007 GT to fly; assuming of course you have passed the necessary retinal scan showing you have the proper licensing for flight.

... in a related story BMW is said to be adding much needed improvments to the ABS system due to issues with the system failing when the BMW 2007 GT is in flight.

Stay tuned.
