Limited Edition BMW R1200ST


If you have the heart to pay US$20,000 for this, you're a brave man

It might be a competent tourer, but from most angles, the BMW R1200ST looks just plain ugly. And it seems BMW haven’t really been able to sell as many of these muthas as they hoped to, because now they’re doing a Limited Edition (only 500 of these LE bikes will be made) R1200ST, which is absolutely packed with BMW-tech.

For US$19,600 you get a motorcycle fitted with anti-spin traction control (ASC), anti-lock brakes (ABS) and electronic suspension adjustment (ESA). It’s still ugly though…

On the other hand, the year 2006 was a good one for BMW, as the German company sold 100,064 motorcycles worldwide. This was the first time in the history of BMW that they sold more than 100,000 motorcycles in a single year! Germany, Italy, the US and Spain were BMW's biggest markets, while the R1200GS (and the GS Adventure) were the bestselling BMW bikes. And going by the number of new bikes that BMW are going to launch this year, it seems the good times will continue for them in 2007.


With sales of more than 100,000 bikes in 2006, it's celebration time at BMW!
