Wunderlich goodies for the K1200GT '06

Hi,

I didn't want to withhold this from you guys, even if it's in German.

Some nice stuff from the German guys for the new K12GT: http://www.wunderlich.de/html/intermot2006/K1200GT.pdf

And at the end you can see there is more to come shortly...

Rgds

I'm digging on those way adjustable "Variolever" hand controls. And what the hell is the Tornado for?

I know one thing I definately don't want is the big fat "W" on the side of my bike. That's 1) the worst logo I've seen and 2) Fugly. :wtf

The exhaust looks cool. I wonder if their peg lowering kit comes with something to lower the brake pedal, like the R models do. That would make it a keeper.

I like the looks too. Unlike Heli, it looks like they kept the adjustibility while still raising the bars. Cool.

I was hoping to see some type of frame slider, possibly hidden under the plastic. Some parts(especially the brake system) look pretty vulnerable in a simple tip-over.

Me too. But only hidden under plastic like k12s has them.
Anybody please do not forget to post here when see some.

The variolevers are way cool, I helped a friend install them on his ST. They come in different colors and don't just look good, but I could see how they would be very useful to me.

The tornado looks like it would go in the intake inlet to swirl the air around and "improve" combustion. I think I'd skip that one.

From the picture, it doesn't look like it!

I just couldn't take the loss of clearance with a peg lowering kit, but like the idea of more legroom. I think I'm going to have to invent an electric seat raiser so you get the legroom while moving, but drops when you stop so I don't drop the bike because my legs won't reach the ground!

Cool gadget idea, I would like that as well, or at least a hot little babe that could slide a pillow under my butt and then remove it before I stop

Does anyone really know how much a 1 1/2" peg lowering kit impacts cornering?? Maybe on an extremely crowned back road I can see it. Or maybe on an R used for canyon carving or racing. But on a GT mostly engineered for cruizing and long distance touring, I can't agree that the tradoff is not a good idea.
