    Ohhhhhhh - please BMW have it come with cruise control!!! I've always wanted a replacement for the K75RT that is more of a "grown up" motorcycle. (No offense to the F800GT/ST but BMW failed on several levels of making this a viable replacement for me at least)
    1995 BMW K75s - 100k and climbing!
    2007 BMW R1200RT - 62k
    2009 BMW G650GS - 22k and ready for Alaska!

    The F850GS has cruise so I would guess other models will also get cruise.

    If they have a GT version I wonder if it will have chain or belt drive?

    No mention of the 850XR at the EICMA show.

    If you look at the photo carefully, you can see the chain guard and the top of the chain just behind the muffler.

    The picture shows a XR, I was wondering if they would use a belt on a GT model.

    Didnít read your question closely enough. I donít think the 800 GT sold very well, and since the XR is offering the fairing and hard bags, Iíd guess there will be no new GT.
