    single spark, increased compression ratio, but no knock sensor and only 95RON, they really must be confident in the new combustion control.

    Seems like it has a fly-by wire throttle too?

    If you're going to look at it that way then surely its a Mark V I'm waiting for as you forgot the DOHC plus the first version of the WC model

    Just wondering if, initially, the wider rim is gonna limit choice of tyres for the 19" wheel

    I don't think there will be a problem - BMW will sell so many the tyre maufacturers will design whatever is necessary.

    I'm sure you're right but it may still limit choice to just the more 'popular' GS fitments e.g. I run what are fairly old skool Avon road tyres which haven't been updated on the front for a while, due to not enough demand I expect as it's got limited fitments where as the rear equivalent has already been updated twice to due to the greater number of fitments and demand.............sooooooo...........I can't see them bothering to do the front in a 120 if they haven't changed thus far

    Possibly the same situation for some of the less popular off road tyres too

    Any way, what ever, I ain't complaining, it's a minor thing and there will still be plenty of choice I'm sure

    Never mind there is only one proper Adventure version - the 1st 1150GSA

    The later ones are plastic incarnations

    I for one am waiting with baited breath,can't wait to get out and ride it.

    On paper it sounds like a fantastic bike,but as they say "The proof is in the pudding"
    Nice to see they've made a nice job of the brake and clutch reservoirs again,sad to see the indicators have gone. Lovely looking dash.

    It's difficult to get an accurate image from photo's but the overall finish looks excellent .

    I should really put off takeing one out until next September when my current bike will be 2yrs old,but I think the chances of that are slim.

    Biggest downside for me is the fact that all the accessories on my present bike i.e luggage, screen,seats, etc are not going to fit the new one which depending on price may just tip the balance.

    Although it never has in the past
