Only reason for asking, is that it seems to transform the RT into what looks like a very well executed custom paint scheme. Somehow the lines, especially the stripe on the side fairing, make the bike look very sexy and fast!
If I were in the market for the RT, I'd sure look into seeing if that paint job could be special ordered. But, then I loved the yellow/check '98 K12RS for six great years.
You know, there was another police bike in Denmark, I believe, that BMW actuallly turned into the current GT using the fairing extensions, both the upper and lower ones and the higher windscreen. Maybe we'll see the same happen with the 12RT; at least as far as the paint job goes.
Also, the upcoming new GT has been criticized for its uninteresting side fairings. Here's an example of what can be done to add interest to the style of a motorcycle and I wouldn't be surprised if custom graphics make an individual statement on this tourer as well.
