    2015 model year. In the U.S. you will have to wait until spring of 2016 to get one.

    Thanks for info.

    Thanks Mike. Where did you learn about those dates?
    Thought I might be interested in water cooled RT, but don't want to wait that long for one.

    Guys, not trying to be incredulous here, but I find it VERY hard to believe that from three years now a new RT is coming... if BMW is true to form, I see this next year, after debuting in the fall of 2013.

    2014 Model Year production will start in August. If it would be a 2014 model with a debut in the fall of 2013, you would have seen prototypes and show bikes by now. Unlike for the GS, which does not have any, there will be significant body panel changes necessary for the RT. The RT will be the last R model to change to the new motor.
    At least, so is the story in Germany.

    Mike, having read what you just commented on, still, I can see it fall 2014 unveiling for Spring 2015 availability... but another year after that? Find that hard to believe... but what do I know.
