I think you would find either a K1200R Sport or K1200S to be more appealing than the R1200S, based on your tastes and intended usage. FWIW, I do love the looks of the R1200S, but I just lusted for more power than the boxer can deliver... As a former R1100S and R1150R owner, I made the move to the K1200R Sport back in 2007, when killer deals were available, and it has quite simply been the best bike I've ever owned. 143rwhp (163 at the crank), paralever/duolever suspension (totally unique), standard ergos, partially faired (same front fairing as the R1200S!). It's not a full on race bike, but is more than ample for track days, commuting, light touring with the collapsible bags, and is an awesome everyday backroad burner in the N. Georgia/W. NC/E. Tenn Mountains!
