Hi All, there's an article on motorcycle.com with pictures of what may be a new R12RT for 2019. The pictures show what might be new variable valve timing system (cam covers are different), new headlights, possible bump of 50 cc and what appears to be a much larger TFT display.

All (theoretically);impressive. But, I’d be happy if they just made it easier to change the low beam bulb. revit

If the headlight change is the result of a switch to an LED headlamp (finally), you won't need to worry about changing bulbs at all.

Cool--looks like there is no need to upgrade my lovely '16 yet again grin

Have you heard about the 2020 BMW T1000GT? This is what I'm waiting for--BMW's new 978cc triple, belt drive, 109HP, ABS Pro, ASC, Dynamic ESA, TPM, cruise control, LED w/ adaptive headlight, Dynamic Brake Light, 5.1g US fuel tank, heated seats/grips, electric windscreen, large TFT display w/ GPS and blue tooth connectivity, wet weight fully fueled 522lbs w/ MSRP $15,450 inc side cases, height-adjustable seat. No audio package, no central locking, no keyless ignition.

Looks as expected with TFT infotainment dash, but intake and exhaust location are different. Is a fully water cooled boxer motor coming?


If the good old days were so damn good, why did we bother to invent modern times?

Can't think why there would be. This new engine meets all the relevant noise standards and that's the only reason they'd want to add weight.

Will be interesting to see what comes of this. The past several boxer updates started with the GS and the following year the updated RT came to light.

We shall see.
