2019 1250RT Pricing

I'm toying with the idea of getting a new 1250. However, I've seen pricing for the exact same features on the 2019's range from $19,999 to $26,499. All have less than 50 miles and as far as I can tell the same features and options. Am I missing something here or should I just go for the lowest price? All feedback is appreciated.

You're clearly missing something rather huge if you see that range of prices all with the same features and options.

Gateway BMW in StL has 2019 RTs with all the options for $20-24k with color matched top box included in the price. Check out their web site. Call and ask for Honz or Tommy. Tell them Tom B sent you.

I'm not sure how to edit my own post so I'm doing a reply instead. The toying with the idea became a can't spend it when I'm dead so I pulled the trigger and purchased the 2019 1250 RT. After talking to the dealer the major/only price difference was whether or not you added any one of the 3 different 719 options (seat, wheels, engine covers). I didn't think they were worth the extra $$ so I decided to skip all of the 719 options and went with fully loaded everything else. Got a good deal and the dealer experience was really great. I dealt with the general manager and part owner of the dealership, really nice guy.

So guess who's now in the market for a better low rise seat, soft grips and a horn that someone with in two feet could actually hear? :-)

Congrats on the new bike. What color and what dealer did you get it from. Post some pictures of the new addition.

Re: 2019 1250RT Pricing

Picked it up at New Century BMW in Alhambra, CA. It was so new I had to wait for them to take it out of the crate and prep it for delivery. Two miles on the odometer. It is Alpine White. They also threw in a free color matched top case (which is on order from BMW). Took it for a 'short' 300 mile ride yesterday.

Were you at their last "bike night" of the season last Thursday? They had some vendors there and raffled off a number of items including a few GoPro Hero 7s and a KTM RC 390

No, I was unaware of the event or I would have attended.

I have front/rear cameras that I pull off my 2010 and would like to install on the new bike. On the 2010 I hooked into the rear accessory power source so that the camera would power on/off with the key. Scared to death on messing something up on the new bike. I know next to nothing about powering accessories on the later models. Should I connect to the same source again? Any suggestions as to where to connect for power that won't trip issues with the rest of the electrical?

Where did you see that? When I test rode one last year at Russellville Honda in Arkansas, one of the highest volume and lowest price Wing dealers in the country, their prices were about 24k which was a couple grand less than other dealers. $18,000 is hard to imagine even for left-over 2018 models.

I took one for a test drive after reading your post. It was nice but not my cup of tea. The ride felt like a big boat, the side panniers are not removable and I like a clutch. Also, the cheapest one in the dealership was 21,000. I'm happy with my decision to go with the 1250 RT. Just my opinion, your mileage may vary.

The Wing is available with standard transmission, but after riding one I lost interest. Too many shortcomings compared to the BMWs.

Get A Fuzblock or one of the other power distribution blocks run your stuff off of. EZPZ.

If you are more comfortable, tapping into the rear aux. power socket is fine.
