R1200S

BMW R1200S

The video teaser for the, widely expected, BMW’s new R1200S is online (select your preferred video player).

The motorbike (at least the few frames we can see) has a strong family feeling with the previous R1100S model, I’m just curious to see if the back is similar to what the press shown (looks like no bagagge is “allowed”: sometimes you may need it… even if you don’t love it) in the last months (Photo One - Photo Two).
The current R1100S model is a nice “balanced” Sport Tourer, I hope this new model will follow this path. It may be a favourite candidate to replace my current R1150R: two and a half years old and 76500 kilometers indicated on the odometer. It (she?) may need to rest a bit sooner or later…

You can bet, I’ll be at EICMA in Milan in the next weeks.

Update: this might be an official photo. (Found on QdE italian forum)

Update, again: here’s the new complete bmw r1200s promotional video (windows media player).
