Kjell,

This is terrific news. Usually after the first leak, BMW then does regular updates; let's see what happens in the near future.

Looks like some of my kooky sources were basically correct with their information if you look at some of my "updates" on this forum both here and on the old site.

I sure was sceptical when told of hid lights, for instance. The rest seems pluasible since it already exists on other bikes. I'm now wondering about any change in the brake system; remember the rumor about the firm Continental Teves make the next generation system for BMW.

That rumor about using a, get this, more "tour" oriented transmission will also be interesting to see if it's true; i.e. removing the K-S tranny, and replacing it with the six speed one from the RT.

At this point we, need more, more info for the revitalization of the "Next Generation" forum. More pictures; weight discussed and reported on as well as a run-down on all the new features.

Greetings, all. Great admirer of the current K1200GT. First post in the forum.

Can we assume this anticipated new generation model will have the same front suspension treatment as the recently introduced K1200R and S? Certainly makes for a longer bike.

I hear that the new tranny will be completely silent and along with belt drive to keep streets clean like their upcoming 800......

Each new GT will come with noise repelling earplugs..... ;-)

Miles
I wonder if it'll be the RT transmission or the S transmission with different gear-sets. The whole idea behind the cassette tranny was the easy of change, but that'd have to hold true for the factory as well as the field. Lot of work on the transmission case to get it from longitudal to lateral as well.
Either way, I hope they put a shorter first gear in it.

Rumours abound that during the NEC Motorcycle Show in Birminghan that BMW will be showing a new bike. Dealers are unsure as to whether this will be the F800 or (and most likely according to dealers) the new K1200GT.

Either way the show opens tomorrow (Friday 27th Oct) and I'll be attending next Tuesday; so not too long to wait now for me.

The Official Photos of the BMW R1200GS Adventure

Could this be the new offering??

BMW have released the official photos of their new long distance motorcycle, the BMW R1200GS-Adventure motorcycle. This is the solidified version of their popular R1200GS motorcycle, and consists of an extra big gas tank, holding 33 liters, an extra high windscreen, cylinder and tank protectors, larger foot pegs and the break and gear selector are adjustable. The handlebars are adjustable as well. The hand protectors form part of the standard delivery.



The alternator has been beefed up to supply 720 W. The gearbox is "as-is" on the standard R1200GS. At order time you can select normal or off-road tires.
