"Bottom's dropped out of the R1200RT"

according to my local BMW dealer.

Not selling well at all.

Wonder why that could be?

Spread the word.

I think realistically sales are down because everybody is waiting for the new RT. Would you buy one knowing there is a new one on the horizon!!

Hmmm... Lets see now...$18000 for a base model BMW 1200RT, add all the extras the TTSE comes with and that goes up to about $23000+ . Figure in valve checks at 6000 miles at BMW service prices...and let's face it the boxer engine is just buzzy...I had one..just my opinion. It was a no brainier for me. I was on my way to the BMW dealer here in town when I stopped at the local Triumph dealer to see if they had a TTSE they did, I test rode it and bought it the next day. Sorry BMW.

Trying to sell my RT aswell - nothing wrong with it, but the dealers don't seem to want to touch it with a barge pole.

Going around Europe until the end of June and wanted to shift it before I go, but looks like I'll have to put it on eBay or autotrader when I return. Be interested to know how you get on with selling yours. How old is it?
