These renderings include Wunderlich’s aftermarket additions and there isn’t much we know yet, (the show starts in four hours!), so this will get you through till then. The R1200RT is slated to get BMW’s new water-cooled motor which, in the 1200GS, makes 125 hp and 92 lb.-ft. of torque.

We can also expect a slew of new electronic rider aids, including a rotating headlight and hill start assist, which prevents the bike from rolling backwards when stopped on an incline.

We’ll know more tomorrow once the bike is officially unveiled, we’ll be dreaming of those headlights staring at us all night in the meantime.

    That’s a win if I’ve ever seen one. I just hope they didn’t have to add much weight to add the watercooled sewing machine. The RT has been, in my opinion, the best touring bike made.

    This is all I could see (still digging it):

    Do you think they could have possibly made that front fairing any wider?!!

      The answer from Germany is a resounding “No, but we did try!”

      I’m sure it’s great from a practical perspective, but man. That’s a bike I’d have to learn to love for its great personality.

      It’s truly massive. A family of four could live in there

    The R1200RT is a truly magnificent bike. I have toured 10′s of thousands of kilometers on a 2006 model. It outperformed many super bikes in the twisties and dual purpose bikes in off road conditions including rocky and in rain storm conditions with low level flooded river crossings. It is very comfortable in long distance touring and handles heavy cross winds better than most. The improvements on the 2010 and now the 2014 model must have made it so much more capable that I would vote this the best all round motorbike available.
