Who else is interested in the soon-to-be-here R1250RS?

That front end looks a lot like the Versys 1000 and 3rd Gen Versys 650.

Other than that, I wish that I could afford one!

I'm anxious to see one and hoping the price won't be anywhere near the 1250RT.

The RS was priced a bit lower than the RT in the past, but then it didn't come with any luggage so they hit you for a couple to few thousand dollars on the other side of the sale for that.

If it’s like most BMW RS/R  bikes it will be a street weapon. Good at most things from touring to slicing up curves for other bikes to eat for breakfast.
If your not off-roading I really think the current crop of sport touring bikes are unbelievably capable.
In person I would imagine it don’t have as much Kawi as it appears to in the video. If I’m wrong there are worse bikes to copy. 

I’m not in the market now but in a few years and with some miles I cold see me owning one.
Lofty Goals Possibly May Be Reached
Modest Goals Possibly May Not.

The final shaft drive is an advantage. Updated electronics and LED lights are nice.
