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.

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.

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.

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?

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

Options -
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.

Just saw this thread, good thing you guys mentioned the S1000RR.

After looking at the facts and what you replied to r1200r with, I'm going to look into S1000RR specs and find out more.

I WAS looking to get a R1200R but if i can get more bang for my buck on a S1000RR, then bye bye R1200R

It's gone.... so sad.

Received final word today from insurance company. The bike is a total loss, compensation amount for 2014 R1200R with heated grips and on-board computer will be $14,478. Insurance considers the bike a total loss at $7000. Due to the high price of BMW replacement parts, it doesn't take much of a crash to total the bike. Anybody need a project bike? Less than 1000 miles on it. Can be seen at Gateway BMW ,St.Louis Mo. So sad, it was an awesome ride, at least I'm still here to cry about it. Phinny

Here in Oz - where BMWs have always been grossly over-priced - I am reckoning on the following, assuming the bike is fully-optioned (which is how the local Motorrad operation usually brings them in):

R1200 R - AUD$23,000.

R1200 RS - AUD$23,800 to $24,000.

Both ready to ride away...

Bought my 2013 r12 last August. Bike had been sitting for a few months. I got a little lucky and received the $750.00 bmw rebate, free bags, and free bag locks. All in all I saved about $1,750.00 just for getting there at the right time. First time that ever happened. I rushed out to buy a lottery ticket. No luck there.:(
