Beyond contractual obligations, I don't see BMW continuing along that path. What would they have to gain?


maybe Speedbrain by KYMCO...??? What a spectacular way for an Asian marque to break into the game...

they could piggyback/synergise the thing off the CCM/Kymco project perhaps?

Wouldn't that put a ding in JengChings little red wagon (re-stickered for Dakar) tactics...?
