from the brochure that I still have (which I tried to scan and paste but can't figure out how) when I bought my '02:
The Standard comes with heated grips, cruise control, an electrically adjustable windshield ans a reverse gear.
The Custom equipment includes chrome luggage rack with a third brake light, heated seat, heated hand grips, cruise control, on-board computer, alarm, Chrome package, and a six-CD changer (to be replaced by a single in-dash CD in April).
The Exodus equipment includes the BMW Motorcycle Navigator, ComSystem, rider and passenger push-to -talk switched, CB radio, CB antenna kit and waterproof bag liners for side cases and top cases.

The CB that came with the LTE was a Midland 75-822 or 75-820 depending on what they had in stock ( virtually the same radio ) There was a wiring kit that adapted that radio into the intercom system BC-3 (built by J&M Audio). The antenna was a BMW part .

Remember that there were a few different intercoms in that time period. The BC-1, BC-2, and BC-3. The only one that worked as it should with the Cb was the BC-3. Also there are lots of bikes out there with aftermarket com systems such as the Autocom and others.

I agree KK610lt as I had always thought the E stood for Elite but that is what the brochure calls it. I do wonder where and why they came up with Exodus.

I remembered that there wuz some tit-for-tat 'tween BMW and Honda over the Elite nomenclature. I found Mark Neblett's note in an old thread -

The basic vehicle is the K1200LT. In the early years there were 3 models: LTS (standard), LTI (Icon) and LTC (Custom). These were differentiated by equipment and trim (onboard computer, CD changer, chrome trim on mirrors, tip-over bumpers, etc.). Later they added the LTE (Elite or Exodus, depending on whether before or after Honda objected to "Elite" as their name). The E added an intercom and GPS (both dealer installed), IIRC. Later the S was dropped. In recent years, BMW has gone to "ala cart" -- one basic LT, with the buyer selecting options/option packages.

HTH.

I have wondered the same question. You have supplied the answer above with a couple of exceptions. Mine is a 2000 model but it does not have the alarm - at least I have not located it. Did the 2000 model have an alarm? I don't remember the books saying anything about an alarm. Where would it be located?

And mine does have the chrome luggage rack over the trunk but it has no chrome on the sides of the bike. Is this the 2000 years' version of the "C"?

If you have the alarm (optional) you will have a little red LED in the dash just above the headlight adjustment knob IIRC. The alarm itself is located under the top case.

Since I have no light above the H/L adjuster, I have no alarm. Thanks for teaching me another new thing. I appreciate it.
