Traded in my Quartz Blue for a new Alpine White.
I was made to as my wife thought the Blue was an "old persons" colour as in Nissan Micra!!!


White is definitely the best and fastest colour!

Don't do it.  Scratch a panel, sell the kids to fix.

Isn't liquid grey the best colour scheme?

Just about to trade in my TTSE for alpine white RT LE so looking forward to riding it in 6-8 wks. None in the U.K. With spec so will have to wait.

BMW did release a promo shot of the LC in white with Motoraad stripes a long while ago.  Must admit it looks a hell of a lot better with them....

You get a POLITE vest free with every bike  :)  and a discount on any white helmet.

That crossed my mind too - but I was too polite to mention it...

So they are offering £1500 of accessories/kit if you buy by the end of this month. Bet you can also get a wedge off the price as well.

Having seen Kevin's iconic, that is very tempting.....!

They've got an Iconic GS too.  Rallye/motorsport colour scheme looks fab.  The red "quilted" seat is a different story though.  Look like something out of a tart's boudoir...

At least on the RT you get quite a lot of paint for you extra money plus a top box.  For the £2K extra on the GS and the RS it's next to nothing and if you want a low seat you're back to just black.

Probably have gone for it, if I didn't already have a LC. There is currently not enough of a difference to upgrade.

Most people who have an RT tell everyone who will listen that their colour is the best ... Until they get up close with an Iconic!


Then you get others who just bemoan the extra thousands spent on the paint, top box and stereo. (Without finding out how much you actually did pay)


Try and find an RT Iconic rider who regrets their purchase!
I was born with nothing and unfortunately I still have most of it left.
