BMW has revealed details of all its largely-unchanged-for-2013 models, with details of minor tweaks and new colour options.

The list includes the F800R, G650GS, R1200R, S1000RR, K1300S, K1300R, K1600GT and K1600GTL. Add to that the F700GS and F800GS revealed earlier, and most of the bases are covered. However, there are some gaping omissions, hinting at the bikes that will get bigger changes.

First, there's no mention of the R1200GS, which many spy shots have already revealed in water-cooled, 2013 specification. Neither is the R1200RT mentioned in the list of 2013 machines, suggesting it will also be changed. Above and beyond that, a naked S1000RR variant and a production model based on the 2008 Lo Rider concept have also been spied recently.

Here's BMW's list of newly-announced 2013 changes.
