For the r1200r base price, im not willing to pay more then $13 000. I think it would be crazy to pay more for this bike as a base model. But if you want to go all out and get all the optional bells and whistles (not literately) such as heated hand grips, on board computer, tire pressure monitor, etc etc the list can go on forever.... it will end up costing you 18-19k before taxes which i think it absurd.
im on a budget of 15K for a BMW motorcycle, if the R1200R price is around 18k like what the other guy said, i might have to settle for less.That does seem rather princely considering BMW's S1000R can be had for far less than 18k, has 4 cylinders, sport ABS, raceworthy traction control, and all around better performance -- result of lots of engineering work.

If a S1000R can be bought for far less than 18K with all fee's, im all in.
Did you factor in the extra fee's and taxes into that figure?
Just saw this thread, good thing you guys mentioned the S1000RR.The S1000RR is a sick bike. Base price is $13,800 for a 2010 (doubt 2011 will be more than 500 over that, but that's a guess).
Options for BMW 2010 S 1000 RR Motorcycles
Race ABS/Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) $1480
Quick shifter $450
Anti-theft alarm $395
Red/White/Blue BMW paint option $750
Assuming you can do without some options, and your tax is not crazy high in your state, you can do it. Maybe you can get it with all options. It's close.
Have you ever ridden a bike this fast before? It does have a "rain mode" which limits power for learning on, if you haven't.
