I'll take a guess.....$22,750.00 plus $510.00 shipping for a total of $23,260.00 for a base model. However, for the first 6 months of availability they will only come with a Premium Package and that will add an extra $1,385.00, for a total of $24,625.00. Of course, if you want additional options you could end up around $26,000 to $27,000.
I'm sure they won't put a USA price on it till they're ready for delivery.
Look at the price of competing large tourers. The 2010 Goldwing lists for $28K for the top-of-the line model. Starts at $22.9K
The 2010 Electra Glide CVO Ultra Classic sells for $36K (not sure if this is a real competitor, though - in my book, there is no competition to BMW)

My buddy bought a 2010 1300GT for $23,000 two months ago because he couldn't find one that wasn't loaded. My guess is you should expect all bikes to be fully loaded.
The adaptive headlight alone is probably over $1000.
$28,000 is my completely uneducated guess. The GT should be about $25K

I say $24,500 for the GT, $28,00o for the other model.

I have a brochure I got at the Toronto bike show from BMW Motorrad Canada. It has the price of the GT at $24,100 and the GTL at $27,225. This is the MSRP for base model, before taxes, prep charges and options.
If $27,225 CAD is accurate for a GTL (Base?) That converts to $26,761 US at todays exchange rates. Add $1,385 for the premium package and you have around $28,100 plus shipping. Very competitive with a 2010 Gold Wing with promised substantial performance and technology advances! This would not be out of line with pricing strategy to capture market share of the luxury tourer segment and in fact, closely resembles BMW's statement in the pre-sales program announcement regarding pricing to be announced.
There was NO financial commitment at my dealer to participate in the pre-sales program. If I don't want to pay the eventual price, maybe I can sell my order position! (Just kidding)
Although the conversion to US$ is interesting it doesn't show the whole picture. In the past, let's say for an R1200RT the price in the US has been a couple of thousand lower than Canada. Prices in Canada are simply higher than in US and it doesn't seem to be related to exchange rate at all. I've never figured it out. The only comment that is offered is market base. Canada smaller = higher prices. I wouldn't be surprised if the US price of the K1600s is at least a couple thousand dollars below the Canadian prices. You lucky folks.
