Well Mike I went online to check the starting prices of all the sport touring bikes I could think of.
Moto Guzzi Norge 1200- $16,290
Yamaha FJR 1300 $15,590
Kawasaki Concours 1400 $15,899
BMW 1200 RT $17,350
BMW K 1600 GT $20,900
Honda ST 1300 $18,230
So I'm thinking what you said. The new Trophy should come in around $17,500 or below. I was surprised at the price of a Honda ST. Hey but I've been wrong before.
Yeah, I bet the US prices will be less but an R1200RT in Toronto is msrp 20,450. I'm afraid the SE will be at least that. Then there's tax and lord knows what else - if i trade my america in it will help some with that but I've started telling Claire my 65th birthday present will be a $25K motorcycle. Better to soften her up now!
Oh, Also, +1 on the red!
