Old news to some of us... But it's worth sharing again.

Not avalable on the GT for 2007. Bummer!

Nor, it would seem, is the zenon lighting. I bet I'll find a way to retrofit that booger, even if it means replacing the the lens assembly.

WOW! I never though about that. I just came off the web site--and you're sure right!

Yes, it would appear that a retrofit will be in order. The "X" lighting seems to be superior to even the brightest white conventional headlight.

My understanding is that the Xenon (once released) will be completely retrofit-able. We'll see...

You can retrofit the xenon on the LT - if you are willing to spend the money. The same will be true of the GT. After the headlight is changed, because of the current sensing in the ZFE, you will need to make a trip to the dealer for reconfiguration with the GT1.

BMW Motorrads new Integral ABS is being introduced in late summer 2006 on all models in the new K and Boxer generation (with the exception of the BMW R 1200 S), replacing the previous system.
So the new braking system is available on the '07 GT, probably starting on the late August build dates.

Upon the introduction of ASC in 2007, customers will be able to order this revolutionary new system for all Boxer models with the exception of the R 1200 S Sports Boxer and the K 1200 GT.
I can see how this would be confusing, but I read it as available on all Boxers (except R 1200 S) and available on the GT. This matches what was posted here earlier, which states January production dates.

An additional function of ASC is that it prevents the front wheel from lifting off when accelerating under full power again an important contribution in the interest of extra safety.
. . . and when passing semi trucks out on the open road.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Not yet, there was no option on it, ASC, nor xenon headlight. My build date is the 36th week, which I think, is around Sept. 4. I bet we won't see the brakes for a while. Can you say, "bug infested"?

Not to worry GT McGrif...I have a small feeling you're going to like your GT just fine without the ASC and new fangled brakes. AS for the Xenon, it would be nice. But the GT's headlight ain't nothing like the anemic little glow of the LT.

Must be a typo in the press release. According to my dealer ABS-i + ASC will be available from mid January 2007. Well, at least at this side of the pond

Here's a scan of a picture in a Belgian motorcycle magazine featuring the new technology of BMW. The picture shows the demonstration of the ASC on a K1200GT....
