What is the price for an 09 K1200GT?

Hi,

I've been looking for the price of a 2009 K1200GT but I can't seem to find it. I know BMW doesn't make them anymore. Now it's the K1300GT, but there are still quite a few 09 K1200GT's at the dealers.

Anybody?

Thanks
Steve

That is because BMW never made any 2009 K1200GTs. The dealers may have a few new 2008 K1200GTs left to sell from last year's inventory, and they will have 2009 K1300GTs.

Ahhh! That makes sense!

Do you work for a dealer? The reason for my question is I'm looking at buying either a K1200GT (2008 obviously) or a K1300GT and I would like to know the price difference. I also would like to know if my local dealer is MOTIVATED to move these 1200's they have from last year.

My research has shown that the 1300 has 8 more horsepower at 500 rpm lower than the 1200 and 3 more lbft of torque. Other than the 1200 being 14 pounds lighter there dosen't seem to be much difference.

Thanks for the reply

Steve

Those questions can only be answered by your local dealer. It all depends on what he has in stock, what incentives are being offered, etc. We can't tell you anything about that.

As for choosing between the K12 and the K13, that all depends on your wallet. If it was me, I'd buy the 13 easily. It's more than just horsepower graphs, it's how smoothly the power is delivered, which significantly improves rideability. When you add in all the other smaller changes, the K13 really is the bike that the K12 should have been in the first place,

You can read more of my test-ride impressions here, and other folk's impressions here. And to see exactly what the changes are between the K12 and K13 bikes, read the complete write-up in the 85-page BMW document posted at the top of this thread.

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...

Hey Steve! I'll take a crack at your question. SOME dealers are blowing out new 08s for $16k. That is OVER $5k LESS than I paid for my 07 less than 3 short years ago. Also, numerous used, low mileage GT's are available. In light of the economy, it's a great time to buy.

As far as the 1300 being the bike the 1200 should of been, I'll give you a little different spin--it depends......Not all 1200's were problematic. Mine was flawless. We can only hope that these prob's don't corrupt the 1300, also. The FD is the same and if I were a betting.......An honest dealer oriented toward customer service makes the choice a lot easier. Ride both models if you can.
