Let's recap ...

R 5000.00 for Digital Imaging device
R 5000.00 for Extended Information readouts.
R 5000.00 for Morphing tyres.

Hmm ... I will pay for that :)

Ok one more.
how about a lifting device that can push the bike up to a almost upright position in the sand.
we could ask gronnie to perfect the bike trailer and attach a beer fridge and then I'm ready for anything. ;D

Maybe I am not explaining this correctly, I don't care to compare it to other bikes or the 990, you can't.

The fact is even at R117k for the poverty spec bike, BMW for me, have now crossed the line from being expensive, but I and others can still stomach the high price, to being on the wrong side of senselessly priced for what the intended use and spec for the bike. Some where there is a line you cross when pricing any item, they have reach that line and crossed it.

I honestly think BMW will not sell many of them and the era for them is over, more and more people will buy 800Gs's and the 1200 will just become the next LT.

Maybe true ... and this is what it looks like if you pull a LT's fairing off :)


... good reason for not taking the LT into the water :)

Previous price - abs plus H/rgips R134 300
New price for above - 136 050. Increase + 1.3%. Very good. Inflation for half year comes in close to 4/5%.
