New K1200GT Specs

http://www.bmw-motorrad.com/com/en/p...00gt_data.html

I can't tell if this means it's got a 6.4 gallon tank with a 1 gallon reserve for a total of 7.4 gallons, or if it's 6.4 gallons inclusive of the 1 gallon reserve. At 6.4 gallons, that gives it the same fuel capacity as the K1200LT.

It's also 40 pounds lighter than the current K1200GT. 621 lbs versus 661 wet weight.

Full-sized, paint-matched system cases, and the choice of either the 28 or 49 liter top case, and you have a real contender that fills that gap between the K1200S and the K1200LT.

I looked at both the LT and the GT specs. They both have the same size fuel tank, but do the new models have 'reserve' tanks? My old 2000LT doesn't have a reserve, or at least I don't think it does.

That must mean that it's 24 liters inclusive of the 4 liter reserve (when the light is "supposed" to come on).

Smile K1200gt

I did some digging around on the BMW website on the K1200GT. I like what I see. If I could have the ability to travel 2up in comfort plus the option to take off the side bags and top box for the sporty riding, then I found what I have missed since selling my RT. I prefer the K motor power and smoothness. A 152 ponies! I am anxious to see this model when it hits the US and see what accessories can be added.

From the first time that BMW shows a new bike at a bike show, isn't it typically as much as a year before the bikes show up at dealers in the US of A ??

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...

I'm definitely taking a drool cup with me when I go to the Cycle Show at the end of January. There are simply too many amazing bikes hitting the streets for '06. Too many bikes, not enough dinero!
