    New Wethead 1200R?

    I've been searching for any info or rumors on a new wethead 1200R. I haven't been able to find anything. Has anyone heard if they are going to continue the R with the new engine? Maybe a new RS-style bike? (OK, I can hope, can't I?) My wife loves her R and would go ape for one with the new engine. Got to keep her happy!

    Haven't heard anything, but I also would be very interested in a new RS or ST type boxer.

    At the moment - the R1200R is continuing with the hexhead. It's expected to be the last of the boxers to receive the new engine, so as a WAG - not before 2014 (and then probably part-year..)
