Paging thru my July 2013 issue of MOTORCYCLIST last night, I noticed the 'spy' photos of the 2014 R1200RT undergoing final road testing in southern France - a liquid-cooled R1200RT.

The published 'photo' in the magazine is actually a representation of what the 2014 model will most likely look like - bigger fairing and all.

Appears very stylish. :german

Did you intend to publish a photo?

After a cross country ride on the GS, I can assure that all you RT riders are going to LOVE this new motor. :nod

You should be able to accelerate suitably enough for passing while riding uphill, 2-up with luggage.

I hope the ergonomics are adjustable.

The local dealer (Vancouver, BC, Canada) told me (two days ago) The RT it is on the sheet for mid 2014 delivery, but he also said the GSA was to come out first. And so RT for 2014 he speculated might be July or August.
But that is his opinion, no hard facts.

I guess he'll know for sure when his mechanics have to get trained on the new models.

The dealer (Motohio) told me maybe this Spring for the 2014 RT but I think that was just a guess. I really love my 05 but I'm really thinking I might like to try a Wethead. I have owned a Air Head , Oil Head and Hex Head, guess I might as well try a Wet Head :)

And maybe MotorRad will re-style it, while they're at it. :)

My dealer and I were speculating that he might see the new RT at the dealer meeting this week in California.

As much as I loved my RT I'm afraid the insurance adjuster is going to say I need a new one. This is the result of Friday's commute to work:

Sorry to see that Dave. Are those aftermarket seats? If so I'd quickly switch the stockers back on in case the insurance company takes the bike.
