    (fwiw, BMW marketers say that customers buy their last new motorcycle by age 64....)

    Over 64

    Bought a R1200R in Feb, when I was 65. I am now 66

    If they resurrect the R1200C with a hexhead or HP2 engine, that may be my next purchase, but I will keep the R1200R.

    Perhaps BMW will keep it to $29,999.99

    The cost in Britain is 19,500, and that converts to $30,981 U.S.

    That may include Britain's VAT, but I do not know.

    The cost in the U.K. for the GT entry was just quoted as ?ú 16,000.-
    The prices quoted in Europe can not be used as a guideline for future pricing in the U.S. The vehicle has to compete here and pricing has to be set so it can and will.
    The BMW SV1000RR is significanlty less expensive in the U.S. than in Germany. I bought two Audis in the last 11 months and each was about $10,000 less in the U.S. than in Germany.

    How about $26K is my guess

    Bmw in the past has added about 10% when coming out with a completely new model of a like current bike.

    As the LT was around $22K to $23K I think BMW will really take advantage of the techy newness of the GTL1600
