According to other sites, the bike will be " priced within 10% of its Japanese counterparts, which has been borne out by the European bike's pricing: 15,150 Euros, just 255 Euros more than a Euro-spec Yamaha YZF R-1."

You have to remember, those prices include Europe's VAT. That was 18% when I left in 1995. Probably higher today.

It's not "unique." It's "highly distinctive asymmetrical headlights". At least that's what Bimmer says.

One of the mags said the base model $15k, $18k for the "S" model.

So, that's BMW's excuse for letting Wolfgang and Hans design the front end?

Eh ,I'd say you're way out with your prices there bud.
A brand new '09 R1 can be had in the UK for less than £10,000 and since sterling is fooked now that equates to roughly the same in Euros.
Unless Yamahahaha have upped their prices it's the best deal you will find in Europe at the mo'.

$15K, huh? That's kinda 'spensive. But, it just might be worth it.

Cool 10,000 euros?

The Yamaha R1s are just about the same as a left over 1098. The R1's out the door here are 14,500.00.

I'v always had a hard time paying what the exotic brands want, specially when I can get the same or better performance out of a so called cookie cutter bike. Not to mention laying it down is alot cheaper.

Just quoting another website, sir (motorcycledaily.com). You have to remember, too, that Japanese dealers here (US) usually sell well below MSRP. That is not the case with Beemerdealers, though.
