The word I got at my local dealer open house is that the factory is shut down in Berlin. Apparently BMW didn't want to get stuck with a big inventory at the end of the model year. 2010 production will start up in August.
It's a good thing some of my local club members have purchased their red F650's early in the season! 4 - red F650 Twins are now some of the new rides in my local club this year!!
