exhaust

For the love of god, put the exhause under the seat or anywhere but where it is, you spend all the money on engineering a good single sided swing and those sexy rims... then you wack that fat ass ugly exhaust over the top. The exhaust pretty much distroys every possible advantage of a single sided swing. otherwise a good looking bike :)

How big?

Nice looking bike, except that exhaust ... geez, what is with manufacturers putting over-sized, over-designed, plastic cans?

that exhaust is gorgeous

and under the seat exhaust is so 1990s. 

that's a $2000 optional street legal Akra titanium exhaust.

I like this color combo better than the HP model.  But I wonder how BMW will replace this model when it comes for the next generation.

the brick is 30 years old, but

but as you know, BMW switched to the inline 4 as of the 2005 model year.  And now they have both an inline 4 and 6 in the K line up.  They retired the flying brick, when the last of the K1200LTs were built for MY2009. :)

Under-seat exhausts

are good for cooking the arse of the rider and pillion.  And the cans keep getting bigger due to more restrictive noise regulations.

cooked bum is bit of a myth I reckon...

that 'Cooked Bum' thing from underseat pipes is a bit of a myth I reckon.

When I first got my Sprint ST 1050 I rode it from Falmouth to south yorkshire in one hit (stopped once briefly for fuel), a distance of nearly 400 miles at a constant 80+ mph. my pillion pad was covered in my sleeping bag and karrimat roll - so if anything was going to insulate the pillion seat and keep heat in it, that would do it. the first thing I did when I reached my destination was to remove my sleeping bag + karrimat and both them adn the pillion seat were cool to the touch.

so that myth's busted (for the ST, at least).. having said that - I'd still have prefered the side mounded pipe a la Sprint GT and this beemer as that gives some underseat storage. essential on the beemer as it gives you somewhere to store those spare starter solenoids!

Cheers,

Baz.

That can looks a bit like an older gsxr 1000 can to my tired old eyes.Surely bm arent copying are they ? totaly agree with zoobaz ,i can do 400 miles a day and no cooked bum.if anything in hot weather more heat comes from the engine /rad.not a problem though,ace bike.
