    I am not arguing with this. Being concerned when a new model is introduced is being prudent.
    The comment Watercooled boxers, the world turned upside down!!!!!!!!!!! . was the one that I tried to address. It sounded like people are afraid that BMW is trying to use square wheels on the bikes.

    The real question is; what kind of water will it use?

    I spoke with my dealer today. Sounds like new body work and other mods for sure. Maybe even dual cooling fans. He said the gs as we know is always the 1st platform to run new stuff. Probably the RT will be next followed by the adventure

    New body work? Yes, you can count on it. The new RT will be the most dramatic change to the line since the introduction of the 1200's.

    I like the idea of an RT that has optional luggage in the style of the GS

    The Genuine BMW water will be available at all dealerships in the USA on August 1 of this year. It is specially formulated for BMW Motorcycles and is the only water recommended by BMW. It will be sold in liter units at $136.95 per unit or the flush size bottle (2 units) for $262.00. BMW also recommends a new water fill gasket at every replacement, which is annually or every 4,000 miles. The gasket lists for $72.80. And remember to pick up a few liters of $47.50 (each) rear lube while you're at the dealership. Thanks for buying BWM products.
