    GTL EXCLUSIVE DELIVERY DATE
    « on: 2014-02-10 21:07:51 »
    Has anybody got one on order and been given a delivery date. Launch date in UK is 15 March but I have been told by my dealer they have yet to be given a chassis no for it let alone a delivery date.

      I have one on order, although I am in Canada.  I have been told the end of March early april.  on another forum someone said they are shipping end of next week,  I hope so because even though we are still plugged with lots of snow, I would like to get it in my garage!!

        That's at least 2 of us in the world with one on the way. Still no sign of mine but they keep telling me any day now.

          Can your dealer tell you where it is in the pipeline?
          I was able to get good frequent updates from Dick Lovetts in Bristol!
          It's nice to know what's going on.

            It would seem none have yet been consigned to UK.  I'm still hopeful it will turn up soon as my dealer says it should be available for the new launch day on 15 Mar even though its not shown as a launch model.

                A good guess would be heavy snow or floods.

                  Hey RTman, I am hoping you will give a good review when you get the 2014 model.  Especially the shifting and rear end clunk.  I've gotten use to mine.  I still get a little embarrassed at long red light when I go from neutral to first and hear the infamous cluck.  It shift nothing like my last two K1200's smooth and quiet.  I bet people near me think my k16 is a Harley God forbid.  I have gotten more experienced shifting and it is much quieter now.  In the back of my mind I am thinking of trading up to the 2014 towards the end of this year.  I have the valve adjustment coming due in about 1 year.  What tire does the 2014 come stock with?

                    I will definitely review it here when it arrives. My main reason for changing my 2011 GTL E was the clunk so hopefully that's improved. One has been spotted at BMW UK and its fitted with the standard  Z6 but I intend to swap to PR4 GT

                            Had to have a look at the Met Office forecast. All the good bits are there for a gentle trip home on virgin tyres. Unsettled, windy and they even mention frost.  Brilliant

                              For USA riders, the Exclusive is already in the BMW New Jersey warehouse and will be shipping out to dealers in the last week of February.  Here on the west coast, that translates to the first week of March for availability.


                              Assuming all goes according to plan, that is.  Who knows what the weather will do to east coast shipments...
