The new boxer

Post by 1st on Wed Oct 03, 2012 9:41 am

I just got an email from BMW USA - the new boxer has officially been announced. As has been past practice, the first one is a GS - 125 HP, liquid and air cooled. No mention of pricing.

They ride quite nice and have a definite lower center of gravity than the air cooled boxer GS. They will be coming out with and water boxer RT very soon.

Hey 1st, MSRP says $15,800 (including ABS) I think is what I saw on your link.

I was going to ride the new GS to Flagstaff last week but the dealer demo had no equipment on it. It is a nice bike though. The HP is definitely a plus and the lower center of gravity makes it feel much lighter. Where is a BMW dealer in NS ? Most dealers down here have a few already.

No dealer in Nova Scotia. Closest in in Moncton, NB, Atlantic Motoplex.

Was on (not riding) the new GS in Las Vegas a week ago today. Certainly did things right.

The 2014 RT is naturally going to have the drivetrain updates of the GS with a beefed-up shaft-drive on the left side, etc.
