Just wanted to give the BMWST team a heads-up. The RS will be displacing the RT. In fact the the RS is the new RT for us old farts.

Please use this advanced notice to put your RT up for sale, assuming you have not already traded it in on an RS.

Cheers!

The new motor is fantastic and the smaller lighter bike is a wonderful change from the big K16GT. But I will miss the GT on the long tours.

Not enough weather protection for me; when I was younger it would have been perfect. I think they are really good looking.

Very nice...but not for me. I like the weather protection and much prefer the styling of the RT. However, I love that other people like different styles of bikes, it's what makes it all so individual.

Love the look of the RS and of course the motor is awesome (but I need the RT's fairing for winter riding). Congrats and enjoy!
