Why look at a lame wrong mockup when videos are out there of the real thing?

Pretty poor Photochopped pic.. using current RT and mixing in new elements... Video here is more accurate:

Interesting.
I would really consider one with that colour code.
I guess we'll have to keep our ear to the ground for more spyshots.
The inner fairing looks very unfinished and bitty in the video.
I wonder if BMW read these forums and pay any heed to the problems and comments that crop up?

It's funny how they use that weird camouflage paint job to try to hide the contours of the bike... while drawing about 10x the attention it might normally receive. grin

Disruptive "zebra" painting... let's wait until our military members chime in. wink
Being a history buff they look very much like a WWI destroyer.

Mercedes seems to have caught on this, however, as two prototype cars I have spotted in recent years were both matte black and with large vinyl strips masking some features.

The video shows a GPS unit that appears to be somewhat larger than the Nav IV (and has labeling on the left side rather than below the screen). Perhaps this is a preview of the Nav V, and perhaps the Nav IV won't physically fit the 2014 RT's dashboard.

It's probably the same GPS used for the wethead GS that fits in a lockable mount.

They've changed
rear drives
fuel pump
fuel gauge
headlight adjustment
instrument cluster for glare

Most feedback is probably via dealers and I wouldn't think there's more on forums.

It appears they've styled it a little more like the R1150RT smile !
Less angular... nice smile !
