UK debut for K1200S
BMW's 167bhp K1200S will be launched in all 36 of the firm's UK and Ireland dealerships on Saturday, September 25. And the price has been announced.
It will be listed at £9750 - quite a premium compared to rivals such as Kawasaki's £8995 ZX-12R, Honda's £8499 Super Blackbird or Suzuki's £8299. But it's only £140 more than the current BMW K1200RS. ABS will be an extra cost option.

Dealers will be taking bookings for demo rides from that date.
Each BMW dealership will host a celebratory day full of activities and displays to welcome the K1200S. Bike handling skills, rock climbing and track events are among them - plus plasma screens showing the K1200 S in action on the Nürburgring in Germany.
The bike was given its public debut at the Munich Bike Show this week.
It will come in a choice of two colour schemes - indigo Blue Metallic/Alpine White, and Sun Yellow non-Metallic/White Aluminium/Dark Graphite Metallic.
