I orderd a new BMW K1200GT and it will be deliverd around end May/July. I choose for the blue one butt i want to see them in real first. My dealer said that i can change the color one mounth before delivery.
Deep Blue Metallic (the one I have ordered)
Crystal Grey Metallic (everyone tells me this is the best color in person, but looks simply white in pictures)
Dark Graphite Metallic (for those people who think the only color for a motorcycle is black)
If I were to buy one I would get it in Crystal Grey Metallic. My favorite color of past BMW bikes has been my ivory cruiser. I just like the color. Combine it with brown seating surfaces and I would be fine with the GT.
As it stands now I will wait a few years and pick up one used, there are already quite a few used R12RTs available and I figure GTs will go the same route. I just can't bring myself to buy a new BMW. The depreciation is too steep. When I bought my 2003 K1200RS last year it had 2000 miles, PIAA lights, and city bags. I got it for 12K. When I sold the RT (1150) before then it was less than 2 years old and lost a third of its value as well. Only all the accesories I had brought its value back up
